Morris County New Jersey
Injuries that occur due to someone else’s negligence are fairly commonplace. Perhaps you slipped and fell on an icy sidewalk. Were struck by a vehicle while crossing the street. Or incurred medical expenses when your neighbor’s dog bit you. These are all cases that fall under the realm of personal injury law. These incidents happen on a regular basis as part of everyday life. Legally holding the negligent party accountable for your injuries does not happen quite so easily. Proving negligence and receiving just compensation can be difficult. The Morris County personal injury attorneys at Leonard Legal Group have extensive knowledge in personal injury law and a track record of success in recovering maximum compensation for injured accident victims.
The purpose of personal injury law is to provide protection for victims who are harmed due to another person’s negligence. Liability is central to each personal injury case; it is only when another entity is deemed legally responsible for another person’s injury that compensation for the victim can be recovered.
The greatest number of personal injury claims in the United States stem from car accidents, followed by other road accidents. Personal injuries that are incurred as a result of another person or party’s negligence may be due to any of the following:
Each state has laws regarding the amount of time an individual has to bring a legal action, called a statute of limitations. In New Jersey, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is two years from the time of the injury however, some cases may have a shorter time window and claims against public entities require that a notice of claim must be filed within 90 days. This timeframe is very important – if the case is not filed within the statute of limitations timeframe, New Jersey courts will not hear the case at any time in the future and you are not eligible to receive compensation. It is best to contact our experienced New Jersey injury attorneys right away to ensure you know your rights and the timeframe for filing a claim.
