Bayonne, NJ Personal Injury Lawyers
Seasoned Personal Injury Lawyers Provide Individualized Guidance for Accident Victims in Bayonne and Elsewhere in Hudson County, NJ
Many people who sustain a personal injury in an accident fail to take action to preserve their right to receive full compensation for those injuries—often, the injured party simply takes the immediate insurance check rather than seeking professional legal advice about the true value of their case, only to find later that their actual economic outlay was much higher than the insurance award. Even in cases where you aren’t absolutely sure whether someone else’s negligence caused your accident, it is important to get the advice of an experienced personal injury lawyer who can evaluate whether a third party’s actions caused or contributed to the injuries you have sustained.

Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Claims in Bayonne
FAQ: What if more than one person caused by accident? Can I pursue a personal injury lawsuit against more than one person for the same injuries?
When multiple parties contribute to the cause of the accident that caused your injuries, you may bring a personal injury lawsuit against all potentially responsible parties. Generally, the first step in securing compensation in these personal injury cases is to allocate fault among the co-defendants. The entire value of your compensation award is then allocated based on the percentage of fault assigned to each party.
FAQ: What if multiple parties share responsibility for causing my personal injury, but one party doesn’t have the ability to pay?
Under New Jersey law, if one co-defendant is found to be 60 percent or more responsible, you can recover the entire compensation award from that party. Basically, your compensation award will be determined, and you are entitled to recover up to 100% of that compensation amount and no more. When a defendant pays more than his or her fair share, that defendant can then proceed against another co-defendant for reimbursement.
FAQ: Should I talk to the insurance company first or speak with a personal injury lawyer?
While in some cases speaking with the insurance company right after your injury may be inevitable—especially in cases involving a commercial insurance policy and potentially large dollar exposure, an insurance agent may even come to the hospital—it is generally important to refrain from signing anything or making a formal statement until you have spoken with a personal injury lawyer. In many cases, the insurance agent may attempt to obtain facts that could reduce your overall compensation award, and an experienced lawyer can help you avoid this potential error.
