Experienced New Jersey Personal Injury Attorneys Assist Accident Victims in Elizabeth and Across Union County, NJ
If you were injured or lost a loved one because of negligent or reckless behavior or acts in Elizabeth, New Jersey, you may be entitled to compensation under NJ state law. This can include compensation for lost income, medical and drug expenses, pain and suffering, emotional damage, loss of companionship, and more. Although it is relatively easy to calculate the amount of lost wages or medical expenses, it is more difficult to determine exactly what your emotional damage is worth.
