Common Cases of Personal Injury

At Gencarelli & Rimassa Law Firm, our highly skilled legal team specializes in handling a wide range of personal injury cases. We have extensive experience representing clients who have been injured due to the negligence or intentional actions of others. Here are some common types of personal injury cases we handle:

  • Car accidents: Whether it’s a rear-end collision, intersection accident, or hit-and-run incident, our attorneys are well-versed in handling all types of car accident cases.
  • Slip and fall accidents: Property owners have a duty to provide safe conditions for visitors. If you’ve been injured due to hazardous conditions such as wet floors, uneven surfaces, or inadequate lighting, we can help you pursue compensation.
  • Medical malpractice: When healthcare professionals fail to meet the standard of care expected in their profession and cause harm to patients as a result, victims may be entitled to compensation for damages.
  • Dog bites: Dog owners are responsible for preventing their pets from causing harm to others. If you’ve suffered injuries from a dog bite or attack, we can assist you in pursuing justice and compensation for your pain and suffering.
  • Product liability: If you’ve been harmed by a defective product due to design flaws or manufacturing defects that could have been prevented with proper quality control measures, our attorneys will fight tirelessly on your behalf.

The Statute of Limitations in Camden County

In Camden County and throughout New Jersey, there is a statute of limitations that sets strict deadlines for filing personal injury claims. It’s crucial for potential claimants to understand these timelines as they vary depending on the type of case involved:

  • Personal injury: In most personal injury cases, including car accidents and slip and fall incidents, the statute of limitations is two years from the date of the accident or incident. It’s essential to consult with an attorney as soon as possible to ensure your rights are protected.
  • Medical malpractice: For medical malpractice claims, victims generally have two years from the date they discovered (or should have reasonably discovered) their injury caused by medical negligence. However, there is also a maximum limitation of seven years from the date of the negligent act itself.
  • Product liability: The statute of limitations for product liability cases is typically two years from the date when injuries were sustained due to a defective product.

Please note that exceptions may exist in certain circumstances, such as cases involving minors or individuals with mental incapacitation. To determine how these deadlines apply specifically to your case, it’s crucial to consult with one of our experienced attorneys promptly.

Frequently Asked Questions – Personal Injury

We understand that potential victims of personal injury often have many questions about their rights and legal options. Here are some frequently asked questions we encounter at Gencarelli & Rimassa Law Firm:

    1. I’ve been injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence. What should I do? If you’ve been injured due to another person’s negligence, here are some important steps you should take:
      • Seek immediate medical attention for your injuries.
      • Gather evidence at the scene if possible (e.g., photos, witness contact information).
      • Contact our law firm for a free consultation before speaking with insurance companies or accepting any settlements offered.
    1. How much compensation can I expect to receive for my personal injury claim? The amount of compensation you may be entitled to depends on various factors, including the severity of your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. Our skilled attorneys will assess your case’s unique circumstances to determine a fair settlement value or litigate aggressively if necessary.
    2. Do I have to go to court for a personal injury claim? In many cases, personal injury claims are resolved through negotiation and settlement without going to court. However, our experienced trial lawyers are always prepared to take your case before a judge and jury if it is in your best interest.
    3. How long will it take to resolve my personal injury claim? The duration of a personal injury case varies depending on its complexity and the cooperation of the involved parties. While some cases settle relatively quickly out-of-court within months, others may require more extensive investigation and litigation that can extend the process beyond a year or longer.
    4. What if I can’t afford an attorney? We understand financial concerns should not prevent you from seeking justice. At Gencarelli & Rimassa Law Firm, we work on a contingency fee basis. This means we only collect legal fees if we successfully recover compensation on your behalf – no upfront costs are required from you.
