Injured Due To Someone Else’s Negligence And Have Questions? We Can Help, Tell Us What Happened.

Why Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

Personal injury lawyers work to make things fair for people who’ve been hurt, and the understanding attorneys at Team Law are no exception.

Whether it’s due to someone else’s carelessness, intentional conduct or an honest mistake, if you’ve been hurt, you have the legal right to be made whole again. But how do you go about doing this? With the assistance of a personal injury attorney. 

We represent clients in Elizabeth, NJ and throughout the state that are injured in a variety of ways, including:

And these are just a part of what we do. If you’ve been hurt and you believe someone else is responsible for injuries, there’s a good chance we can help you.

Do I Really Need a NJ Personal Injury Attorney?

Yes, and here’s why. The law is complex and you’re going up against a corporation, insurance company or responsible individual. All of them want nothing more than to avoid paying you anything for your injuries.

Sometimes people do the right thing, but they often don’t. Therefore, it usually requires an attorney to make those responsible for your injury take steps to make things right. 

Why? Because a personal injury attorney can make full use of the legal tools available to make sure you receive full compensation for the harm you’ve suffered.

But you’ve already got a settlement offer from the other side’s attorney or insurance company representative. So you should be fine, right? No. It’s an almost guaranteed certainty that any offer made to you for your injuries is a low-ball offer.

Even in the rare instance it’s not, there may be other factors to consider that can affect what you’re entitled to under the law. Without talking to an attorney, you probably don’t know what these are. And there’s a good chance the other side doesn’t know either.

How about handling the case yourself? That’s certainly allowable in most cases, but it’s almost always a bad decision. You don’t know what you don’t know, and it takes a trained and seasoned lawyer to make sure nothing is missed and you make the strongest case possible in court.

For instance, which court do you bring your lawsuit in? Where you got hurt or where the defendant lives? Or maybe it’s where you live? 

And what if there are multiple defendants from multiple jurisdictions, what then? And do you sue in state or federal court? You’re probably confused already, and the lawsuit hasn’t even started. Just wait until motions start being filed and discovery begins.

You wouldn’t replace the roof on your house or install a new air conditioner in your car yourself, would you? Then why are you trying to handle your personal injury lawsuit that could be worth more than the value of your car and house combined?  

What Kind of Damages Can I Recover?

Every case is different, but depending on the nature of your injuries, you may be able to potentially recover for:

Not all of these damages will be available in every case. For example, if you’re single with no immediate family members, then recovering for loss of companionship or consortium is probably not possible. 

If your injuries didn’t result in you having to miss any work, then you shouldn’t expect to recover for lost wages. And if the defendant didn’t act in a particularly awful way, then punitive damages probably aren’t likely either.

Punitive damages exist to punish very bad behavior. If your injuries were the result of an honest mistake, then there’s nothing to punish.

About Elizabeth, NJ

Elizabeth is a city located in Union County, New Jersey. The county seat of Union County and its largest municipality, Elizabeth is, as of the 2010 Census, the fourth largest city in New Jersey, behind Paterson; in 2018, the Census Bureau estimated that Elizabeth had grown to be the country’s 215th most populous city. Elizabeth was settled by English settlers beginning in 1664; the area was named for the wife of Sir George Carteret, one of the two original Proprietors of the colony of New Jersey. Elizabeth served as the first capital of New Jersey and was the site of several battles during the Revolutionary War. The current city of Elizabeth was created in 1855 from the merger of Elizabeth Borough and Elizabeth Township. Beginning at the turn of the 20th century, Elizabeth became a major economic and industrial hub, hosting manufacturing facilities for the Singer Sewing Machine Company and the Electric Boat Company (builder of submarines for the U.S. Navy).

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Personal Injury Accidents in Elizabeth, NJ

FAQ: What type of compensation can I get in a personal injury case?

Compensation is divided into three basic categories: (1) economic damages, (2) non-economic damages and (3) punitive damages. Punitive damages are only rarely available, in cases where the defendant intentionally caused you harm or took action that was especially shocking. In other cases, available damages include: Economic damages for your out-of-pocket expenses and losses, such as medical bills, physical therapy, property damage, lost wages and more. And Non-economic damages for your pain and suffering, emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life.

FAQ: Should I settle my personal injury claim with the insurance company or go to court?

The answer to this question varies based on the case. You should never settle without first talking to a personal injury lawyer. However, whether or not you should settle always depends upon the insurance company’s offer. You want to make sure any settlement award covers all of the future costs of your injury, not just the bills you already have. Our lawyers are here to negotiate with the insurance company to try to reach a fair settlement. If the insurance company refuses to agree to a fair amount, we’re fully prepared to litigate to protect your rights at trial.
