Car accidents are the cause of most of the personal injury claims filed in the United States every year. But injuries can stem from medical errors, slip and fall accidents, workplace incidents, or defective products. Injuries from an accident can result in physical pain, emotional suffering, and financial stress. The experienced New Jersey injury attorneys at Leonard Legal Group help injured victims navigate the personal injury claims process. We have a proven track record of success recovering just compensation.
In filing a personal injury claim, the victim must demonstrate that the injury suffered was directly related to another person or party’s negligence or wrongful action. The burden of proof in these cases rests with the victim. Types of personal injury cases include:
Personal injury cases revolve around the issue of liability and damages. “Damages” refers to the amount the injuries have cost the victim, whether that is monetarily, physically, or emotionally. In successful cases, damages are paid to the victim by the individual found legally responsible for the injury. In some cases, an insurance company is found responsible for the injury and they must pay the damages. The damage award may be determined after a negotiated settlement or – if the case gone to trial – ordered by a judge or jury.
