Seeking financial accountability when personal injury occurs

Posted by Saul Steinberg | Jul 10, 2019 | 0 Comments

New Jersey emergency rooms are often filled with people who have been involved in motor vehicle accidents. When a collision results in serious or life-threatening personal injury, the emergency room process might merely be the first in a long line of medical visits. Depending on the situation, surgery might be necessary or repeated physical therapy sessions to help an accident victim achieve as full a recovery as possible.

Many car accident victims are completely unprepared to meet expenses associated with their collisions. Even if a person does have emergency funds set aside, he or she should not have to carry the financial burden of an accident caused by another person's negligence. If a driver was texting at the wheel, operating his or her vehicle with an impermissible blood alcohol content or was speeding, the court might see fit to hold him or her financially accountable for those actions when another person suffered injury because of it.

Sometimes, there are criminal charges filed in connection with an automobile accident, such as when police arrest a driver for suspected intoxication. While criminal cases and personal injury cases are processed in different courts, evidence used to support a criminal charge may help substantiate a personal injury claim in civil court. Damages in personal injury cases might include emotional trauma, property damage, medical expenses or loss of wages in recovery.

In a personal injury lawsuit, a plaintiff is tasked with proving that the defendant was negligent and that his or her negligence directly caused damages to the plaintiff. At Zucker Steinberg & Wixted, a recovering New Jersey accident victim can rely on an experienced legal team to aggressively litigate on his or her behalf in court. In collisions that have resulted in fatality, an immediate family member of a decedent may seek justice by filing a wrongful death claim in memory of a loved one.
