Everyone knows someone who has been injured in an accident that was someone else’s fault. Perhaps it was a car accident or an injury at the workplace. Accidents often leave innocent victims with not only injuries to recover from; they also bring a torrent of medical bills that must be paid. This can put an enormous financial strain on an individual and their family at a time when the focus should be on recovery, not the diminishing bank account balance. Accident victims have rights and at The Epstein Law Firm, P.A., each leading Bloomfield personal injury lawyer at our firm protects those rights and fights tirelessly on behalf of accident victims in Essex County and throughout New Jersey.

Skilled Bloomfield Personal Injury Lawyer Fights For Full and Fair  Compensation For Victims of Accidents

Recovery from an accident is often accompanied by expensive medical treatment which can put undue financial stress on the accident victim and their families. This is an unfair burden to an innocent victim who was harmed because of another person’s negligence. Personal injury law is designed to address that by providing a legal mechanism for accident victims to pursue compensation for the losses — known as damages — that they sustained as a result of the accident.

These damages are not punitive — they are not intended to punish the at-fault party. These are compensatory damages, designed to restore the injured person to the condition they were in prior to the accident. These damages may include — but are not 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

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

FAQ: I fell down a flight of stairs in a restaurant because some of the steps were slippery. The restaurant owner is saying that I am partly to blame for my accident because I wasn’t using the handrail. What can I do?

Proving negligence in a personal injury accident claim can be quite challenging, even when it seems straightforward to the accident victim. At-fault parties, such as the restaurant owner in this situation, will often try to shrug off any responsibility, instead arguing that the injured person is at least partly to blame for their own accident. For the best possible outcome in your case, consult with an experienced accident attorney who can assess the merits of your claim and advise you of your legal options. Every Bloomfield personal injury lawyer at The Epstein Law Firm, P.A. offers a free case evaluation; schedule your consultation today.

FAQ: What if I do share some level of responsibility for my accident — can I still recover some of the damages I sustained?

It is not unusual for more than one party to share responsibility for an accident. Every state follows different laws for these types of scenarios; in New Jersey, modified comparative fault laws apply. Under these laws, if the accident victim is partly to blame for their accident, then the level of compensation they may recover for their accident will be reduced. For example, if you are 25 percent responsible for a slip and fall accident, then the damages you may recover will be reduced by 25 percent. If it is determined that you share more than half — 50 percent — of the responsibility for the accident, then you may not recover any compensation from the other at-fault parties.
