Types of Personal Injury Cases
No two personal injury cases come with the same set of circumstances. Further, accidents can happen anywhere–on the job, while shopping, or having dinner. Common categories of personal injury cases include product liability, premises liability, as well as truck accidents, and car accidents. While some of these cases may seem similar, each type requires a different strategy to maximize a claim.
- Slip & Fall Accidents. Slip and fall accidents are one of the most common types of personal injury cases. They can occur anywhere, from a grocery store to a sidewalk. Injuries resulting from slip and fall accidents often require medical attention and can result in long-term disabilities.
- Motor Vehicle Accidents. Motor vehicle accidents account for many personal injury cases, with over 3 million people hurt every year. Injuries can range from minor scrapes and bruises to serious and life-threatening. Head trauma, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and internal organ damage are common. In some cases, the victim may be unable to return to work or require long-term medical treatment. In addition, medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses can be excessive.
- Medical Malpractice. Being injured at the hands of a trusted medical professional is traumatizing. As such, we understand the difficulties involving medical malpractice cases. Victims have the right to seek compensation for their physical, emotional, and financial losses. To succeed in a medical malpractice lawsuit, victims must prove that the medical professional deviated from the standard of care and caused the injury or illness.
Whether it’s a motorcycle accident, or a slip & fall, one fact remains the same–for the best chance of receiving compensation, you need to work with a Lakewood personal injury attorney with a track record of winning complex cases like yours.

Statute of Limitations in New Jersey
The Statute of Limitations for personal injury claims in New Jersey is two years after the injury or wrongful death. This means that the minute your injury occurs, the clock starts ticking. If you fail to file in time, you may be barred from recovering any compensation for your injuries. However, it may be extended in certain circumstances, e.g., the person was a minor at the time of the injury.
