  • What damages can I recover in a personal injury case?

If your personal injury claim is successful, you may be entitled to various types of compensation. These can include:

      • Medical expenses
      • Lost wages and future earning potential
      • Pain and suffering
      • Emotional distress
      • Loss of consortium (for family members)
  • What if I am partially at fault for the accident?

If you are partially responsible for the accident that caused your injuries, it does not necessarily prevent you from pursuing a personal injury claim. In New Jersey, we follow a modified comparative negligence rule. This means that your compensation award will be reduced by an amount equal to your percentage of fault. As long as you are found less than 50% responsible, you can still seek damages.
