In some cases, you may have to file your claim with another party’s insurer. This applies to most workers’ comp and workplace accidents and animal attack cases.
In other cases, you can sue for damages. This applies to accidents in which you suffered serious, long-term damages categorized as catastrophic. If you suffered life-changing injuries in an accident, you may be able to sue one of the following for damages, based on how and where you were injured:

You can include all accident-related losses and damages in your claim. These include medical treatment expenses, lost income, lost earning potential, pain and suffering, emotional trauma, compensation for the loss of a loved one, funeral and burial expenses, property damage, and more. Incidental expenses can also be included, such as towing, ridesharing expenses, daycare services, and cleaning services. As long as we can gather proof to show that these losses and damages were caused by your accident, we can include them in your claim. Our Clifton personal injury lawyers will first identify and then quantify the damages you can include in your claim and we will gather the evidence needed to win compensation for those damages.
The dedicated attorneys at Team Law will seek maximum compensation for your personal injury settlement. We know that accidents and subsequent injuries can be costly, and we aim to recover as much money as possible. While you are focusing on your recovery, we are focusing on the total value of the lawsuit.
When you provide us with medical reports or receipts, we turn to your doctors or other medical experts to understand how much it will cost for you to recover fully. At times, injuries from an accident are so devastating that you require lifelong care, medical equipment for the home, or transportation to another location. Prescriptions, physical therapy, and counseling may also be needed. This is all taken into account in consideration of a settlement award.
If you missed time from work, we can determine how much money you should have made. If you cannot return to work due to a permanent disability as a result of your accident, we can petition for damages equal to the amount of money you should have made in your lifetime.
Your pain and suffering have value as well, and our Clifton personal injury lawyers can use your testimony to better explain why your pain and suffering are so great. If you suffer from emotional anguish, we can also petition for damages commensurate with your distress.
While punitive damages are not often awarded at trial in New Jersey, they are available when the guilty or negligent party was especially heinous or reckless while causing the accident. Potentially, you could receive five times your compensatory damages up to $350,000 in punitive damages if they are awarded in your case.
