Legal Assistance in Helping You Maximize the Financial Compensation Award

In a majority of personal injury cases, the third party’s negligence is clear, but this is not the same for every case. In other cases, it may take diligent and thorough research in order to establish that the party’s recklessness caused the injuries.

Following an accident, it is important to investigate the case in order to establish a right to compensation. The following are possible damages that may be awarded following a personal injury claim:

  • Employment-related costs When an accident happens, most injuries will have debilitating consequences, which result in the victim’s inability to return to work. Whether the victim is left temporarily disabled or left with a permanent injury, it is important to seek a full restitution for the loss of wages. Other damages that can be recuperated include the loss of employment benefits and the loss of a future earning capacity.
  • Medical expenses – The costs of medical treatment stem far beyond initial treatments, and regrettably, some health insurance policies do little to help victims cover these costs. When a person suffers a catastrophic injury, he or she will likely need expensive prescription drugs, ongoing physical treatment, and even at-home medical care. Depending on the severity of the injury, some injuries can require that the victim make special modifications to his or her home in order to live a comfortable life going forward.
  • Pain and Suffering – Following an accident, victims are entitled to receive financial restitution for their pain and suffering. As previously mentioned, the physical pain a person endures is only a fraction of his or her trauma.

Our lawyers will also represent you in civil litigation cases such as Work Compensation, Medical Malpractice and much more.

Wrongful Death in Essex County, New Jersey

Certain accidents have the capacity to cause the untimely demise of a victim. When this happens, the state’s Wrongful Death Act as well as the Survival Statute allow the victim’s dependents and heirs the opportunity to seek legal remedies.

The purpose of the state’s Wrongful Death Act is to compensate the victim’s survivors for any financial losses that result from the victim’s passing. In a majority of cases, the most pivotal recovery is the survivor’s loss of financial support, which is an amount that is based on the monetary contributions the decent might have reasonably been expected to make.

Other recoverable damages a victim may pursue are the value of parental guidance, loss of companionship, and loss of services the descent may have normally provided. Under the Wrongful Death Act, punitive damages are not recoverable after the death of a person. It is important to note that damages recovered are an exclusive benefit to the dependents and heirs of the descent. Moreover, priority will be given to the victim’s dependents.
