Successfully Filing A Personal Injury Claim In New Jersey
To successfully file a personal injury claim, you must understand how your accident occurred and identify the at-fault party whose actions or inaction led to the accident. You must also quantify your damages and losses and then file your claim with the right insurer.
Slips and falls can occur in homes, workplaces, on public roadways, on sidewalks, in retail or business locations, and restaurants, hospitals, and nursing homes. Motor vehicle accidents are those that involve a motorized vehicle such as a bus, truck, motorcycle, or car, and they often involve pedestrians and bicyclists. Workplace accidents include falls, getting caught in or in-between machinery or objects, electrocution, and being struck by falling objects.
Depending on how and where your accident occurred, you may be able to hold the operator of a motor vehicle, a doctor, nurse, mechanical servicing technician, a business owner, a business operator, a nursing home administrator, an animal owner, or your employer liable for accident-related losses and damages.
Accurately determining the cause or causes of your accident and quantifying your losses are critical components of any personal injury claim. A failure to identify the right party, the correct causal factors that led to your accident, or the value of your losses can be detrimental to your case.
This is where we come in. Our Franklin Township Personal Injury Lawyers can help you build a foolproof case and will assist you every step of the way, from evidence collection to settlement or trial.
Proving Losses And Damages From Personal Injury Accidents
To prove your losses and damages after an accident, you can use footage or pictures from the accident scene, as well as wage or salary statements, vehicle repair invoices, medical treatment bills, and proof of burial costs to include those losses in your claim. You can also include accident-related noneconomic costs such as pain and suffering, emotional trauma, and loss of consortium – as long as you can quantify those losses and connect them to your accident.
Contact our Franklin Township Personal Injury Lawyers to learn how. Our personal injury team can assist residents of Franklin Township with evaluating their damages so that they can file a claim based on the provable losses they suffered in an accident.

Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Cases In Franklin Township
FAQ: How do I file a claim?
To file a claim, submit your evidence and a demand letter to the at-fault party’s insurer. If your claim is accepted, you should receive your compensation payout and your case is closed. If you are denied payment, file a complaint with the relevant court. This will initiate the discovery process during which the court will investigate your claim. If the court determines you were unfairly denied compensation, you should receive compensation. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you with this process to improve the likelihood of winning your claim.
FAQ: Do I need an attorney?
It is not advisable to handle a personal injury case on your own. From gathering the right evidence to establishing a causal link between the actions of an at-fault party and your losses, there is little margin for error, and insurance companies and defendants will do whatever they can do to avoid making compensation or settlement payouts if they can avoid doing so. It is best to solicit the services of an experienced personal injury team to fight your case on your behalf.
