Liability in a personal injury case is not necessarily automatically assumed, especially when multiple parties are involved. In order to receive compensation through a New Jersey personal injury claim, you have to prove negligence was a factor. Basically, proving negligence means showing that your injuries resulted from someone else's lack of care.

To prove negligence you are required to show that:
 

  • the other party had a certain duty of care;
  • this duty of care was not carried out; and
  • you sustained injuries as a result.

Determining negligence is a vital part of your New Jersey personal injury claim, and needs to be established early. Your New Jersey personal injury attorney can help you gather appropriate evidence to prove the negligence of another party. This evidence may include police reports, photographs of the New Jersey car accident scene, and witness statements.

Your medical bills and evidence of lost wages are also important components of evidence, as they will demonstrate that you have suffered injuries and financial hardship as a result of the accident.

A New Jersey personal injury attorney can advise you on how to file a New Jersey personal injury claim. You can also learn more about this topic by visiting our article library.
