Accomplished Belleville Personal Injury Lawyer Recovers Just Compensation For Accident Victims

When an accident occurs due to negligent actions on the part of another person or entity, anyone injured in that accident has the legal right to pursue compensation for their losses, which are known as damages. The injured party must file a personal injury claim seeking to recover these losses, which may include — but not be limited to — any of the following and more:

  • Bills for medical treatment
  • Hospital expenses
  • Surgical bills
  • Expenses for rehabilitative treatment
  • Cost of prescription medications
  • Expenses for laboratory tests
  • Cost of diagnostic testing (X-rays, MRIs, CAT scans, and other tests)
  • Emotional pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Lost income due to time away from work
  • Loss of future earning capacity due to the injury 
  • Future anticipated medical expenses stemming from the accident injuries
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of one’s enjoyment in life
  • Loss of consortium

These losses are compensatory damages — they are intended to compensate the injured person for the harm they endured. Compensatory damages are not designed to punish the person who is at fault for the accident. Some losses are non-financial, such as mental anguish or emotional pain and suffering. In cases where there are losses that do not have an exact monetary value, the New Jersey court will consider all the elements of a personal injury claim to assign a value to those losses.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Filing Personal Injury Claims In Belleville, New Jersey

Is there a legal filing deadline for personal injury claims in New Jersey?


Yes. This legal filing deadline is known as a statute of limitations, which are set by each state for filing civil and criminal charges in a state’s court. In New Jersey, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim is two years from the time of the accident or from the time at which you learned of your injury from the accident. And while — in limited circumstances — the court can pause this deadline, for the most part, it is a firm deadline. If your personal injury claim is not filed before the statute of limitations expires, the court can dismiss your case outright and you will have lost your opportunity to recover compensation for your accident injuries.

I was hurt in a car accident that was someone else’s fault. Is there anything I should do after the accident to help my personal injury case?

Yes. While the moments after a car accident are understandably stressful and traumatic, there are a few things you can do in the aftermath that can help your personal injury case. Report the accident to the police and seek prompt medical attention for any injuries you sustained. These are the first steps in documenting the accident itself and your condition afterward. If possible, take photos of the scene of the accident, including the vehicles involved, the roadway, and your physical injuries. Obtain contact information from everyone else involved in the accident as well as any of the witnesses to the accident. And contact a knowledgeable Belleville personal injury lawyer; The Epstein Law Firm, P.A. offers a free consultation to New Jersey accident victims.
