Personal injury lawsuits account for most civil litigation cases in this country. These injuries stem from traffic accidents to slip and falls, from defective products to medical malpractice. The fact that personal injuries are relatively commonplace does not, however, diminish the pain and suffering experienced by the injured person or their loved ones. 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. The experienced Parsippany personal injury attorneys at Leonard Legal Group have a proven track record of success securing the financial compensation clients deserve.
Personal injury claims are covered under New Jersey laws and statutes. The injury suffered by a person, or the damages sustained to property, must have been the result of negligent or wrongful actions of another person or entity. Liability and damages are at the heart of all personal injury claims. In a successful case, the party causing the injury or harm compensates the one who suffered the injury or damages.
Most personal injury claims in the United States stem from traffic accidents. It is not surprising; studies show that approximately 5.25 million driving accidents occur per year. Personal injury claims may include the following:
Each state has a different statute of limitations – the limit on the amount of time an individual has to file a lawsuit in the civil court system. In New Jersey, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is two years from the date of the injury. This timeframe is important; individuals who fail to file a lawsuit against those responsible for the injury within two years of the injury will not have their case heard at any time in the future nor will they have any right to compensation.
