What Is a Personal Injury Claim?
Also referred to as a tort claim, a personal injury case arises when the negligence of one party causes injuries, suffering and losses to another party. Various types of cases are classified as personal injury claims, including (but not limited to) those involving:
- Motor vehicle accidents, including car crashes, truck accidents, motorcycle wrecks and pedestrian accidents
- Premises liability accidents, such as slip and falls, elevator accidents and swimming pool accidents
- Catastrophic injuries, like traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and disfigurement
- Wrongful death.
Here, it should be noted that, in personal injury cases, New Jersey follows the Modified Comparative Fault, 51 percent Bar Rule. This means that, even if an injured person was partly at fault for the accident and injuries, (s)he can still be entitled to compensation as long as (s)he was less negligent than the defendant. When fault is shared by the plaintiff and defendant, the resulting awards will usually be proportionally reduced (by the percentage of fault assigned to the plaintiff).
How Do Personal Injury Cases Work?
Different types of personal injury claims may proceed in different ways, depending on factors like (but not limited to) the nature of:
- The negligence that caused the accident and injuries
- The defendant(s)
- The available evidence to back up the claim.
While an attorney at Greenberg, Walden & Grossman, LLC can give you specific answers to this question, in general, the process of resolving personal injury claims can involve things like (but not necessarily exclusive to):
- Filing various documents with the court to get a case started
- Gathering the necessary evidence
- Working and negotiating with insurance companies
- Presenting the case in any legal arena, including mediation, trial, etc.
How Much Is My Personal Injury Claim Worth?
Just as the process for resolving personal injury claims can vary across different types of cases, so too can the recoveries for these cases vary. Some of the factors that can impact the amount of compensation that is available for a given claim include (and are not restricted to):
- The nature of the accident and negligence
- The scope and severity of the injuries suffered
- The type and number of negligent parties
- Whether punitive damages may be available.
A lawyer at Greenberg, Walden & Grossman, LLC can evaluate your claim and explain more about the damages available for your case. Generally, however, compensation for personal injury cases tends to include damages for:
- Medical bills and treatments
- Lost wages
- Property damage and repairs
- Loss of consortium
- Mental suffering.
