New Jersey Personal Injury FAQs
It’s understandable that you may have a lot of questions on how personal injury claims work in New Jersey. Don’t worry — you are not alone. We are here to answer all your questions and help guide you through the claims process. Here are some of the most common questions we receive:
Q: How much time do I have to file a lawsuit after I’m injured?
A: Every state has different time limits, which are known as the statute of limitations. If you miss the deadline, you’ll likely be barred from pursuing your claim. The time limit will vary based on the type of claim you’re presenting, which is why it’s important to meet with a personal injury attorney who can help.
Q: How do you prove negligence?
A: Conducting a thorough independent investigation can help prove the other party was at fault. When you retain an attorney, he or she will gather evidence, hire experts if necessary, speak to witnesses, and whatever else is needed to present a strong case during negotiations.
Q: Will the at-fault party be punished?
A: No, not in the sense you might be thinking of with jail time. Personal injury claims are civil claims and involve financial compensation. In some instances, there may be a separate criminal case filed by the state. For example, if you were injured by a drunk driver, the person may have to face criminal charges as well.
