If someone else caused you personal injury, why should you pay?

Posted by Saul Steinberg | May 21, 2019 | 0 Comments

Medical treatment is expensive. Going to a hospital for even a minor issue can result in weeks or months of medical bills. In a more serious situation, especially if you suffer personal injury in a car accident or other unexpected incident, you might be completely unprepared to cover the costs of health care. New Jersey law allows recovering accident victims to seek monetary judgments if their injuries were caused by someone's negligence.

What if you're driving along the highway and another car careens out of its lane and into your line of traffic? If the vehicle hits you and you wind up needing stitches, surgery or other medical treatment, you should not have to bear the burden of financial expenses associated with the incident. A distracted or drunk driver or a motorist who was otherwise negligent or reckless can be held financially accountable for the damages his or her actions have caused.

Recovering from a motor vehicle accident often necessitates taking time off work. If you are paid by the hour, this can spark additional financial distress in your household. If yours is a single-income home and you are the sole breadwinner, you may have trouble making ends meet while you're recuperating.

It can be quite helpful to have an attorney by your side, especially when dealing with insurance companies. An experienced legal team can clarify state laws and help you determine the maximum amount of compensation for personal injury damages to which you may be entitled.
