However, these are just a part of what we do.

How Team Law’s Elizabeth Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help

Personal injury law is complex, especially when you’re going up against a corporation, insurance company, or negligent individual to fight for fair compensation for your injuries. All parties want nothing more than to avoid paying you what you deserve. Sometimes people do the right thing, but they often don’t. Therefore, it usually requires an experienced attorney to make those responsible for your injuries take the 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 that 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? The one where you got hurt or the one where the defendant lives? Or maybe it’s the one 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 try to handle a personal injury lawsuit without the help of a seasoned accident attorney? At Team Law, our qualified Elizabeth, NJ personal injury lawyers understand the law and have helped countless families safeguard their rights and file personal injury claims for the compensation they deserve after suffering an accident. No matter how or where you were injured, we will walk you through what you need to know about your case and will handle everything from evidence collection to insurance negotiations so that you can focus on getting your life back on track. Contact us today for a free case evaluation.

What Kind of Damages Can I Recover?

Every case is different, but depending on the nature of your injuries, you may be able to recover monetary compensation for damages such as:

Compensatory damages are not intended to punish the party that is responsible for the accident. Instead, compensatory damages are designed to compensate the injured victim with the goal of restoring the injured person to the condition they were in before the accident occurred. In all personal injury claims, the careless behavior that caused the accident to occur must be proven. The Elizabeth personal injury lawyers at Team Law are results-driven — our team is dedicated to fighting for accident victims to recover just compensation for their accident injuries.

About Elizabeth, NJ

The City of Elizabeth is 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 About Personal Injury Accidents in Elizabeth, NJ

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.

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.
