What is “negligence” in New Jersey?
The claim of negligence is at the core of all personal injury cases. Personal injury law is based on the premise that any injuries sustained, or any damages sustained to property, must be the result of negligence or wrongful actions on behalf of another person or entity. “Negligence” refers to a situation in which an individual acts in a careless or negligent manner, which results in injury or damage. Negligence involves legal analysis of the elements of negligence as they relate to the specific facts of a case and, by itself, is difficult to define.
What type of compensation can I receive in Bergen County NJ?
If another person or entity’s negligence caused your injuries, you may be entitled to compensation for damages. Compensation may include any of the following:
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of income and/or future income
- Costs of rehabilitation

The individual or entity found legally responsible for the accident pays monetary damages to the victim. Damage awards may be agreed upon by both parties after a negotiated settlement or ordered by a judge or jury following a court trial.
