The most common source of personal injury in the United States is from car accidents, followed by other accidents on the road. But personal injuries as a result of another person’s negligence may be a result of any of the following:
Personal injury cases revolve around the question of liability and damages. “Damages” refers to the amount that the injuries have cost the victim, both monetarily, physically, and mentally. Unfortunately, this is not a straightforward determination as every personal injury case is different and has a unique set of circumstances.
Individual states have a statute of limitations, which is the period of time an individual has to bring a legal action. In the state of New Jersey, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is two years from the date of the injury. If you are considering filing a claim, this date is very important. If the case is not filed within this two-year timeframe, the court will not hear your case at any time in the future nor are you eligible to receive any compensation.
