Your New Jersey Lawyers For Personal Injury
A personal injury, either physical or mental, is simply an injury suffered by a person. It could be a fractured arm, a dog bite scar, a back sprain, or any other type of injury, including depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Our judicial system has recognized for many years that people who are harmed by others deserve fair compensation for the harm caused. The injured person must demonstrate the person causing the injury was negligent and the injuries claimed were caused by the accident. If you, a friend, or a relative have been hurt as a result of someone else’s negligence, then you have been a victim of a personal injury.
