Types of Cherry Hill Personal Injuries We Handle

Personal injuries often result from accidents based on another person or party’s negligence.

Our personal injury attorneys have handled many personal injury claims from accidents, such as:

Do I Have Grounds to Bring a Cherry Hill Personal Injury Claim?

Marc Rothenberg Esq, Attorney for Personal Injury in Cherry HillPersonal injury cases often revolve around the concept of negligence. Negligence is a legal principle that forms the basis for many personal injury claims. It refers to a failure to exercise the degree of care that a reasonable person would exercise in similar circumstances.

In simpler terms, negligence occurs when someone’s actions or inactions fall short of what a reasonably prudent person would do in the same situation, and these actions or inactions result in harm to another person.

A successful personal injury claim based on negligence requires you to establish:

  1. Duty of Care: The first element in a negligence claim is establishing that the defendant owed a duty of care to the plaintiff. Duty of care is a legal obligation that requires individuals to act in a manner that avoids causing harm to others. In many cases, this duty is relatively straightforward, such as the duty of a driver to operate their vehicle safely to avoid accidents.
  2. Breach of Duty: To prove negligence, it must be demonstrated that the defendant breached their duty of care. This means they failed to act as a reasonably prudent person would under the circumstances. The breach can be an act (commission) or a failure to act (omission), depending on the specific case.
  3. Causation: Causation involves establishing a direct link between the defendant’s breach of duty and the plaintiff’s injuries. There are typically two components to causation: “cause in fact” (also known as “but-for” causation), which means that the harm would not have occurred “but for” the defendant’s actions or omissions, and “proximate cause,” which requires that the harm was a foreseeable result of the defendant’s actions.
  4. Damages: Lastly, to succeed in a personal injury claim, the plaintiff must have suffered actual damages or harm as a result of the defendant’s negligence. These damages can be physical, emotional, or financial in nature and may include medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages or income, property damage, and more.

If we can establish all of these elements, the injured party may have a strong basis for a successful personal injury claim against the negligent party.

What Compensation is Available to Victims of Personal Injury?

AV Preeminent Badge 2024Victims of personal injury may be entitled to various types of compensation, depending on the circumstances of their case.

The following are some common types of compensation available to personal injury victims:

  • Medical Expenses: Personal injury victims can often recover compensation for their past, present, and future medical expenses related to the injuries caused by the accident. This includes hospital bills, surgeries, doctor’s visits, medication, rehabilitation, and other necessary medical treatments.
  • Lost Income: If the injuries result in the victim being unable to work or having to take time off from work, they may be entitled to compensation for their lost wages and any potential future loss of earning capacity.
  • Pain and Suffering: Compensation for physical pain, emotional distress, and mental anguish experienced due to the injuries and their consequences are often available. These damages are less tangible but are an important part of personal injury claims.
  • Property Damage: In cases involving accidents such as car collisions, victims can seek compensation for the repair or replacement of damaged property, including vehicles.
  • Loss of Consortium: This type of compensation is available to spouses or family members of the injured person, covering the loss of companionship, support, and services as a result of the injury.
  • Disfigurement or Scarring: If the injuries lead to permanent disfigurement or scarring, victims may recover compensation for the physical and emotional impact of such changes to their appearance.
  • Special Damages: These are specific out-of-pocket expenses incurred as a result of the injury, such as transportation costs for medical appointments or modifications to the home to accommodate a disability.
  • Wrongful Death Damages: When a personal injury results in the death of the victim, the surviving family members may be entitled to compensation for funeral expenses, loss of financial support, and other losses.
  • Punitive Damages: In rare cases where the defendant’s conduct was particularly egregious or intentionally harmful, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the wrongdoer and deter similar behavior in the future.

New Jersey does not place a cap on compensatory damages in personal injury lawsuits. Unlike many other states, there is no cap on medical malpractice awards either.

What if I’m Partly to Blame for My Injuries?

The National Top 100 Trial Lawyers BadgeComparative negligence is a legal doctrine used in personal injury cases to determine the degree of fault or responsibility of each party involved in an accident or injury. It is applied when more than one party is believed to have contributed to the incident that resulted in harm.

Here’s how comparative negligence typically works in personal injury cases:

  1. Assessment of Fault: The court or a jury assesses the actions and behaviors of all parties involved in the accident or injury to determine their respective levels of negligence. This assessment includes evaluating the actions leading up to and during the incident.
  2. Percentage of Fault: Each party’s degree of fault is expressed as a percentage. For example, if a plaintiff is 30 percent at fault for an accident, while the defendant is 70 percent at fault, their respective levels of negligence are established.
  3. Damages Calculation: The total damages awarded to the injured party are then reduced by their percentage of fault.

New Jersey follows a “modified” comparative negligence rule with a 50 percent bar. Under this rule, a plaintiff can only recover damages if their own negligence is equal to or less than 50 percent of the total fault for the accident. If the plaintiff’s degree of fault exceeds this threshold, they cannot recover any damages from the other party, even if the other party is partially at fault.

Comparative negligence allows for a fair allocation of liability and the apportionment of damages based on each party’s degree of fault. So, even if you are partly at fault, you have a fighting chance at obtaining compensation for your medical bills and other losses. When in doubt, it’s in your best interest to consult a personal injury lawyer.

What Is the Deadline for Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Cherry Hill, NJ?

Top Rated Personal Injury AVVO Rating BadgeIn New Jersey, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit is two years from the date of the accident. However, some exceptions can shorten or even lengthen this deadline.

For example, if the defendant is any type of public entity, the statute of limitations is much shorter. For any public entity, a Notice of Tort Claim requires filing within 90 days after the incident.

Otherwise, a claim against the public entity may be barred. Some personal injury victims may not be aware that their injury occurred on or with a public entity property, as this category encompasses public schools as well as municipal, county, state, and federal entities.

When medical malpractice is involved, New Jersey adheres to the discovery rule. That means the plaintiff has two years from the date they discovered that a healthcare provider harmed them. Keep in mind that the burden of proof lies with the plaintiff to prove they did not know about their health conditions earlier.

If a person succumbs to their injuries, their families may file a wrongful death lawsuit against those responsible. Such a lawsuit requires filing within two years of the death date.

This is one reason why contacting a Cherry Hill personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your injury is important to ensure you don’t miss any important deadlines. Otherwise, you cannot seek compensation through the court system.
