Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Cases In West Milford, NJ

How much does it cost to hire a lawyer?

At The Epstein Law Firm, P.A., our West Milford NJ accident attorneys do not charge for our initial case evaluations. During our initial consultations, we will gather notes on what happened to you and will walk you through what you need to know about how things will likely progress with your case. Most personal injury law firms only collect when they win your case, in which case they take a one-third share of your settlement or payout. We do not charge any other fees and will handle your case from start to finish until a final case resolution is reached.

Can I sue for damages?

It depends on the nature of your injuries and how your accident occurred. New Jersey is a no-fault state, so in the event of an accident, you must recover damages from your insurer. However, in some cases, you can use the insurance cover of another party in the event of an accident, such as workers’ comp coverage for workplace accidents. For other cases such as dog bite cases, the owner of the animal is strictly liable, unless the animal was provoked, so you can seek compensation from the dog owner or his or her insurer for your bite- or attack-related injuries. A qualified West Milford personal injury lawyer can help you determine the best path forward for injuries and cases of different types so please contact us today for a free and confidential case evaluation.
