Protecting You Right to Compensation

How Do I Know if I Have a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

In New Jersey, victims who suffer injuries and losses because of someone else’s negligent act, omission, or misconduct are entitled to a financial recovery of those damages. Victims may also be entitled to recover under limited circumstances in the absence of negligence, such as when injuries are caused by defective products or dog bites.

To bring and prevail in claim, you must be able to satisfy the essential elements of a personal injury lawsuit. Generally, this means proving:

  1. A legal duty existed between you and the defendant (i.e. they owed a duty of care).
  2. The defendant breached the legal duty, often because they were negligent.
  3. The defendant’s negligence / breach of duty was a substantial cause of your injuries.
  4. You suffered actual damages as a result.

Every personal injury case is different, and every case demands a personalized evaluation. At Levinson Axelrod, P.A., our attorneys can help you understand whether you have grounds to take legal action and what we can do to help during a free and confidential consultation.

How Much Will I Be Able to Recover in My Personal Injury Case?

That depends on many different factors – from the nature of your injuries and whether they are expected to cause long-term losses to the surrounding circumstances and available insurance coverage.

While it is not possible to estimate the value of any case without first looking at the facts, victims are generally entitled to a recovery of the economic and non-economic losses they incur because of their accidents. This can include:

  • ER and hospital bills
  • Rehabilitation, therapy, chiropractic care
  • Future medical expenses
  • Lost income and diminished earning capacity
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional anguish and loss of quality of life
  • Property loss
  • Other financial / emotional damages
