No one expects to be the victim of a sudden injury in an accident. But, unfortunately, personal injury incidents are quite common in America, from car accidents to slip-and-fall incidents to workplace accidents, among many others. When New Jersey residents are injured in any type of incident in which another party’s negligence or recklessness caused the situation, there may be legal options to consider.
Why a personal injury claim can help
Some people are concerned that personal injury lawsuits are too time-consuming or complex to pursue. Others think that their own insurance will cover all of the costs that arise in the aftermath of the incidents. However, sometimes this isn’t the result. Medical bills can skyrocket, while at the same time victims lose income from being unable to return to work due to the injury. In the end, even so-called “minor” injuries can cause thousands of dollars in loss.
Not all personal injury lawsuits end up in a courtroom trial. In fact, the vast majority of civil cases do not go that far. Depending on the evidence in any given personal injury case, injured victims may be able to press for a satisfactory settlement in direct negotiations with defendants, or mediation may even be an option. Fear of the courtroom shouldn’t stop injured victims from exploring their options.
