Personal injury law offers protection for victims who have suffered an injury as a result of another person or party’s negligence. Unfortunately, recovering compensation for these injuries is not a simple, straightforward process. At The Leonard Legal Group, our Chester New Jersey injury lawyers are recognized leaders in personal injury law, bringing experience and knowledge to your case.
Like all states, New Jersey has limits on the length of time allowed to file a lawsuit in the civil court system after experiencing harm. These laws are called statute of limitations and the deadlines vary depending upon the type of case being put before the court. The statute of limitations for personal injury cases in New Jersey generally provides two years from the date of the injury for the victim to file a lawsuit against those parties responsible for 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 important to note. Failing to file a lawsuit before the statute of limitations window closes has a consequence: the New Jersey court system will refuse to hear the case at any time in the future. Delaying filing a claim, missing the deadline and your right to compensation will be lost. It is best to contact our experienced New Jersey injury attorneys as soon as possible after your accident for reliable legal guidance.
Car accidents are the most common source of personal injury claims filed each year in the United States, followed by other road accidents. But slipping and falling on an icy driveway, being bitten by a neighbor’s dog, and suffering injury as a result of a defective product all fall under the category of personal injury.
Personal injury law was designed to protect those individuals who have suffered injury as a result of another person’s negligence. These injuries may be attributed to any of the following events:
No compensation can completely undo the pain and suffering experienced as a result of someone else’s negligence. But just compensation can relieve the financial burdens associated with the injury and help you and your family to move forward.
