Atlantic City Personal Injury Attorney

If someone else’s negligence injured you in an accident, you no doubt want to put the whole thing far behind you. If it was a car accident, simply accepting the settlement the car insurance company offers may feel like the path of least resistance. Settling for an initial offer, however, rarely serves your best interests. Such offers often fail to factor in the total expenses you’ll face throughout the recovery process. Personal injury claims are complicated, but your rights matter.

New Jersey’S Statute Of Limitations

If someone else’s negligence caused your accident—be it a car accident or any other kind of accident—New Jersey (like every state) imposes a statute of limitations for bringing a personal injury claim. In New Jersey, that time limit is two years from the date you sustained your injury, barring a rare deadline-extending exception.

If you suffered an injury in an accident, don’t take matters into your own hands. The skilled personal injury lawyers at The Levin Firm have the experience and commitment to guide your claim toward its most just resolution.

New Jersey Car Accidents

In New Jersey, your own Personal Injury Protection (PIP) policy will cover any injury you incur in a car accident—even if the other driver is at fault. PIP represents a kind of no-fault coverage and it does not provide compensation for non-economic damages, such as the pain and suffering that so often accompanies serious car accidents.

A New Jersey accident victim can—under certain circumstances—move a claim outside the no-fault PIP system and instead bring a legal case against the driver whose negligence caused the injuries.

Such circumstances can include when the injury victim has:

  • Lost a body part
  • Suffered significant scars or disfigurement
  • Sustained fractured bones
  • Lost an unborn child
  • Sustained a permanent injury
  • Died from the injuries incurred

New Jersey law and insurance companies can make car accident claims especially complicated, so you need experienced legal counsel on your side.

Each case will present unique legal issues, evidence required to prove liability, and damages that resulted from the injury. Our firm carefully evaluates each case on an individual basis to ensure we obtain the best results possible for each client, no matter what type of accident took place.

Handling Cases Involving Serious Injuries

If someone else’s negligence caused you serious, long-lasting, or even permanent injuries, you stand to face mounting medical expenditures and indeterminate total expenses with time. Such ongoing damages can include decreased earning potential and lost wages, long-term medical expenses, loss of companionship, and pain and suffering. A skilled personal injury attorney will help you effectively calculate your losses and bring a claim that accurately reflects those losses.

Medical Evidence to Support Your Claim

Once you received medical care for the injuries you sustained, document your medical expenses. Such expenses can include the following:

  • Appointments for medical care and therapies
  • Written medical and therapeutic instructions
  • Printouts outlining your medical diagnoses
  • Bills for medical treatments, emergency transportation, prescription medications, appointments with specialists, medical equipment, and support services
  • Copies of medical notes to your employer

By carefully compiling the medical expenses related to your personal injury claim, you’ll help bolster your case by verifying the costs you’ve incurred.

Resolving Your Personal Injury Claim

Insurance companies are in the business of making a profit. While professional and legal standards hold them accountable, their commitment to the bottom line supersedes their motivation to provide you with full and just compensation. Before you accept an insurance settlement, then, consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer who will help you determine if the settlement adequately compensates you for your damages.

The complicated New Jersey personal injury claims process necessitates significant paperwork that can quickly overwhelm you. Trying to juggle all of this after an accident injured you isn’t a great plan. Allow your personal injury lawyer to work with you and guide your claim toward the compensation to which New Jersey entitles you.

Most parties will settle personal injury claims out of court. Informal settlements, in the form of negotiations between both sides, can furthermore take place at any time before your claim completely processes through the court system. If someone else’s negligence injured you and your attorney cannot negotiate acceptable terms with the insurance company or the at-fault party’s attorney, you and your legal counsel may file a civil complaint against that party.
