When is it Necessary to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
If someone is seriously injured as a result of another’s negligence, it is absolutely necessary to hire a lawyer to ensure a higher likelihood of obtaining the full amount of compensation to which the victim is legally entitled. Ordinary citizens who faithfully pay their insurance premiums every month may believe that their insurance company will give them what they deserve if they get hurt. Unfortunately, insurance companies are driven by profits and are therefore incentivized to minimize the amount of compensation they pay out. Also, insurance adjusters may offer lump-sum payments that seem large but fail to cover the of true costs of an accident, including lost wages, ongoing physical therapy, injuries that appear later, and other hidden costs. Other reasons for hiring a personal injury lawyer include the following:
- Navigating insurance claims can be complicated.
- Insurance companies may attempt to dismiss or minimize claims.
- Insurance companies have their own lawyers, putting victims with no legal representation at a distinct disadvantage.
Victims can level the playing field by hiring an experienced personal injury lawyer who knows how to counter strategies and tactics used by large insurance companies.
How Much is an Injury Claim Worth in New Jersey?
The potential value of an injury claim will depend on the severity of the injury and the circumstances of the accident. Some accident victims received millions of dollars in compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. However, each case is unique, and past awards do not guarantee nor predict the amount of money a plaintiff might recover by filing a claim. When our attorneys accept a personal injury case, we will carefully consider multiple factors when estimating the value of the claim, including:
- The nature and extent of the injury.
- Economic losses, including reduced earning capacity.
- The possibility of permanent disability.
- Any need for ongoing medical treatment.
Assigning value to a personal injury claim is a complex process. Our attorneys are also aware that insurance companies often push for less compensation than what is requested. Our skill in this area has allowed us to obtain successful outcomes for accident victims. Our client recoveries include the following:
- $1.5 million for the family of a young man killed by a drunk driver
- $1.35 million recovered for a 62-year-old woman whose hands were crushed by a machine
- $800,000 recovered for a 21-year-old man who was shot in the eye with a paintball gun
- $600,000 recovered for a 35-year-old man who was struck in the head by a falling board
- $150,000 for a car accident victim with neck and back injuries
- $100,000 for a woman who required surgery after a car accident
- $68,000 for a woman who fractured her finger in a car accident
