Did you slip and fall on a neighbor’s sidewalk? Suffer an injury as a result of a motor vehicle or other accident? In everyday life, things happen. Accidents happen.

The top-rated attorneys at Leonard Legal Group in Rockaway Township have a successful track record representing personal injury victims, securing the just compensation their clients deserve.
Car accidents are the cause of most personal injury lawsuits in the United States, followed by other road accidents. But personal injuries occur in many difference situations; they may stem from these and other events:
In a personal injury case, the injury suffered must be attributed to another individual’s or entity’s negligence or wrongful actions on behalf of another party.
Every state has a statute of limitations indicating the length of time an individual has to file a lawsuit in civil court. In New Jersey, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is two years from the date of the injury. It is important to note that, unless the lawsuit is filed during this two-year period, the case will not be heard in the courts nor will any damages be awarded.
Personal injury law is designed to protect an individual if they have been injured or their property is damaged due to someone else’s negligence. Personal injury claims are covered under the tort claim acts and negligence must be proven.
