About Paterson, NJ
Paterson is the largest city in Passaic County, New Jersey, with a population of about 145,647 as of 2018. Founded by the Society for the Establishment of Useful Manufacture in 1792, Paterson was a central community at the heart of the industrial revolution. Because of Paterson’s proximity to the Great Falls of the Passaic River, the city thrived based upon industries that were powered by the falls until around 1914 (when alternative forms of energy became more readily available). Paterson was also known for its brewing industry, although most breweries closed after Prohibition.
Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Claims in Paterson
FAQ: What is my personal injury case worth?
Establishing the monetary value of a personal injury claim is a complex and fact-specific process that depends heavily upon the severity of the injury that you sustained—the more serious the injury, the higher your compensation award will be. Because the basic idea behind personal injury law in general is to make the accident victim whole again, you will receive compensation for all of your out-of-pocket expenses (and losses, such as lost wages) related to the injury. Compensation for pain and suffering is a more subjective element, where the amount of damages you receive may depend largely upon the skill of your lawyer in conveying how the injury has (and will continue to) impact your life, in terms of your recovery.
FAQ: How long will it take to get the actual compensation in my case?
Again, the answer to this question depends upon a number of factors. In some cases, we may be able to resolve your case in just a few months, while other cases take years to successfully resolve. We work effectively and quickly in filing our complaint as soon as possible, along with interrogatories, answers and any other documentation needed to fuel the process. We may need to consult with experts in order to strengthen your claim—both in terms of determining the cause of the accident and the potential impact of the personal injury itself. Where trial becomes necessary, the court calendar can also factor in to the time necessary to resolve the personal injury suit.
