How to File a New Jersey Personal Injury Claim (Part B)

Settlement Stage of a New Jersey Personal Injury Claim

The amount of compensation you obtain in a New Jersey personal injury claim will vary depending on your situation. Most often, your compensation will come in the form of a settlement from the individual or company's insurance company. Bear in mind that a New Jersey personal injury attorney cannot promise you any amount before the legal paperwork has been signed and you have your settlement in hand.

It is a common misconception that a settlement from an insurance company-particularly one that is agreed upon without the aid of a New Jersey personal injury attorney-will provide for all of your short- and long-term financial needs. While in some personal injury cases this might happen, it is not necessarily the norm.

Your New Jersey personal injury attorney can increase the odds of your obtaining a fair settlement that takes into consideration all of your financial needs.
Things that you may overlook, such as damages for pain and suffering, will be evident to an experienced New Jersey personal injury attorney.

Some common damages covered in personal injury settlements include: 

  • any loss of wages (past, present or future);
  • medical expenses; and
  • other expenses associated with your injuries (i.e. at-home medical staff, retro-fitting your house to be wheelchair accessible, etc.).


Furthermore, you may be eligible to recover non-economic damages for emotional and psychological distress such as pain and suffering. In a New Jersey personal injury claim, you have 2 years from the time of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit.

Your New Jersey personal injury attorney can make sure that the necessary documents are submitted on time, and more importantly, correctly.  This way, you can focus on recovering from your injuries, and not on expending precious energy on trying to understand tedious legalese.
