The top-rated legal team at the Leonard Legal Group in Randolph has legal savvy, experience, and a proven track record of success in personal injury cases.
The basis of a personal injury claim is that an individual or property suffered injury or damage because of another party’s negligence or wrongdoing. Personal injury cases revolve around the concept of liability and damages.
Personal injury claims may be an outcome of a traffic accident, a slip and fall, or as the result of a defective product. Specifically, personal injuries may include the following:
If you suffer a personal injury, the party that you are trying to hold responsible may claim that you share some — or all — of the blame for your injuries. If, in fact, you share some level of liability, the total amount of compensation you receive from the other at-fault parties will be affected. In these shared fault injury cases, the state of New Jersey follows a “modified comparative negligence rule”, meaning the amount of compensation you receive will be reduced by an amount equal to your percentage of fault for the accident. If it is determined that you are more than 50 percent responsible for the injuries, you cannot receive any compensation from the other at-fault parties.
When you or a loved one suffers an injury due to another person’s negligence, the pain is physical, emotional, and financial.
