Establishing Your Negligence Was Less Than 51%
With the help of an experienced New Jersey personal injury attorney you may be able to prove to a court that your own actions contributed less than 51% to your accident, allowing you to remain eligible to recover compensation. You can help facilitate this process by gathering the necessary evidence and partnering with your New Jersey personal injury attorney to document the events that led up to your accident.
Important evidence for your injury claim may include the following:
Keeping a daily post-accident "pain journal" helps document the injuries you incurred and how your life has been impacted by your injuries. Also, you will need to keep track of all doctor visits and medical bills and receipts. While this type of record-keeping won't indicate the percentage of negligence, it can be used to determine the amount of damages to which you may be compensated based on New Jersey comparative negligence laws.
Essentially speaking, all potential sources of evidence can become relevant when trying to determine a percentage of negligence after a New Jersey accident.
