Do You Need a Jersey City Personal Injury Lawyer?
Unless you have a background in personal injury law, you may be at a disadvantage if you handle your case unrepresented. Insurance companies use many different tactics to take advantage of clients and reduce their payouts, including devaluing claims and wrongfully denying benefits. With a personal injury attorney by your side, you can prevent these tactics to maximize your financial recovery.
A personal injury lawyer can investigate your accident, preserve and collect evidence, build a strong claim against one or more defendants, hire qualified experts, take care of confusing paperwork, and handle other legal processes in the pursuit of the best possible results on your behalf. Hiring an attorney removes the legal burden from your shoulders and allows you to focus your full attention on healing.
What is a Personal Injury Claim? Do You Have a Case?
A personal injury claim falls under the umbrella of the civil justice system. While the criminal justice system punishes a person for a crime, the civil justice system seeks to make an accident victim whole again by holding the wrongdoer financially accountable (liable). A victim is made whole again through financial compensation for his or her related losses; by being restored to the economic state he or she would have been in had the accident not occurred.
Almost all personal injury claims are founded on the legal doctrine of negligence. A person or party is negligent if they are careless, and this causes someone else an injury or another type of damage. With some exceptions, such as in a strict liability lawsuit, you or your attorney must prove that the defendant was negligent before you can hold the party legally accountable for your injuries and losses.
Proving negligence requires evidence that the defendant owed you a duty of care (an obligation to act in a reasonable manner), breached or violated this duty of care through a careless or reckless act, and caused your injury. You will also need evidence that you suffered compensable losses or damages in the accident. An attorney can help you prove your case with the required amount of evidence using special legal resources, experts and personnel.
