About Hawthorne, NJ

Hawthorne is located in Passaic County, New Jersey. It has a population of about 20,000 and was originally part of Manchester Township, which was later divided to create Hawthorne and half a dozen new townships and districts. It used to be inhabited by Delaware Indians, but Dutch immigrants in the 1700s started to settle in the area and became the borough’s first farmers. Evidence suggests that Hawthorne was chosen as a camping ground by Major General Lafayette during the Revolutionary War, and locals took steps to modernize the township at the turn of the century by detaching from Manchester Township and developing local services and industries of its own.

Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Cases In Hawthorne, NJ

FAQ: What kinds of evidence do I need for my case?

Any evidence that can be used to identify the at-fault party, prove how your accident occurred, substantiate your claims, or quantify your damages can be used for your case. This includes eyewitness statements about how the accident in question unfolded, photo/video evidence of the accident, police reports, maintenance logs, hospital bills, and vehicle repair invoices. Even the medication use, training, certifications, and experience of those involved in the accident, such as drivers, healthcare workers, and machine operators can be used to substantiate your claims that the at-fault party was somehow careless, negligent, or simply made errors that led to an accident.

FAQ: Can I sue for damages?

It depends. In most cases, since New Jersey is a no-fault state, you will have to file a claim with your insurer. In some cases such as dog bites and workers’ comp cases, you can seek compensation for your damages using the applicable insurance policy of another party. Also, if you suffered catastrophic damages in an accident, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. An attorney can help you determine whether you should file a personal injury claim with your insurer or the insurer of an at-fault party or a lawsuit against the at-fault party, so speak to our experienced Hawthorne NJ accident attorneys today to discuss your options.
