Personal Injury Lawsuits in Mercer County

If you or someone you love has been injured because of another’s negligence or wrongful act, you may be entitled to compensation for the resulting losses.

In New Jersey, victims of negligence have grounds to bring civil personal injury lawsuit against the person or entity they claim to be at fault for their injuries and, when successful, recover financial compensation for damages such as:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Lost income and lost future earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Other economic / non-economic losses

Although the right to compensation exists, there is never a guarantee that you’ll be made whole after an accident or preventable injury. Insurance companies are corporations and they care more about profits than people. By working with our lawyers at Levinson Axelrod, you can level the playing field and effectively fight back against insurers that want to pay you as little as they can.
