The Insurance Company Has Experts – You Should Too
The insurance company covering your accident and injuries has only one thing on their mind- settling your case fast. They know through experience that if they can push you to settle your case quickly, it will save their company thousands and thousands of dollars. In fact, many insurance companies are now sending people to the ER on the day of the accident in an effort to “get a statement and make an offer” to the injured party.
Remember, insurance companies are a business and are looking out for the best interest of their business- which is their bottom line. After an injury, one often feels a multitude of things: shock, pain, disorientation. It is essential that you reach out to someone who has YOUR best interest at heart. Rosengard Law group will sort through the paper and legal work, so you can focus on recovery.
The insurance company has experts looking at the facts of the accident and the injuries right from the moment that the event is reported. They start calculating what the case should cost them based on these facts and start to push for a settlement to reduce their obligations. You must remember, once you accept an offer, the case is over, regardless of any losses you may have down the road.
This is why it is essential to speak with a NJ personal injury attorney as soon as possible after the accident. Your attorney will also have experts on hand to review your accident and injuries and give an honest opinion about what could potentially be the losses for the victim over time.
Having an expert on your side will make sure that when your lawyer approaches the insurer with a compensation package that it is complete and fair for you, not the insurance company. After all, you are the one who has been injured and suffered financial losses.
Elizabeth personal injury lawyers See These Different Types Of Accidents
A personal injury can happen in any place and at any time. It can be caused by the actions of a single person or be the result of poor business practice. Personal injuries that can be awarded a settlement are injuries caused by the negligent act of another person or business.
Although these injuries can happen in any event, there are some prevalent categories where a large portion of personal injuries occur. These categories include, but are never limited to, the following:
Car accidents are the most common event to cause a personal injury. (see New Jersey car accident lawyer) The state of New Jersey has about 300,000 accidents per year involving a passenger vehicle. These figures include the following types of accidents:
- Two or More Cars
- Passenger Vehicle Accident – Single Car
- Trucking Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Pedestrian Involved Accidents
Defective products can also cause car accidents or personal injuries that occur during a car accident. Your Elizabeth personal injury lawyer will carefully examine the details of the accident to determine the actual fault of the accident and the injuries.
Premises liability is a broad category for personal injuries. These types of damages generally relate to injuries that occur on a commercial property. However, as in the case of an animal attack, the injuries may occur on personal property as well.
Some of the types of personal injuries that are associated with premises liability include:
- Slip and Fall
- Dangerous Staircases or Stairwells
- Elevator or Escalator Accidents
- Animal Attacks
- Falling Objects
If you have been injured as a result of criminal activity on a commercial property, you may also have a personal injury case. Property owners are responsible for keeping their property safe for visitors, which includes having appropriate lighting and maintaining hedges so criminal activity cannot take place.
Medical malpractice covers injuries caused by medical professionals in the course of providing treatment. Medical malpractice is much more than just the surgical error stories that you hear on the news. These are injuries that cause significant and sometimes life-changing harm to the patients.
Doctors are not the only ones that can be held responsible for medial malpractice. Malpractice applies to anyone within the medical field that is providing treatment to the patient and that treatment causes harm. Some types of injuries our New Jersey medical malpractice lawyers see include:
- Failure to Diagnose, Misdiagnosis, and Failure to Treat
- Improper Medical Treatment or Care
- Surgical Errors
- Post Surgical Infections
- Disease Transmission
- Birth Injuries and Labor and Delivery Injuries
- Jaw or Tooth Injuries from Dental Work
- Test Errors or Interpretation Errors
- Wrong Medications
Any injury that a patient endures as a result of their medical care treatment may qualify as a medical malpractice case. It is crucial to speak with an Elizabeth personal injury attorney as soon as you believe you have been harmed by a medical professional.
Manufacturers and developers of consumer products have a duty only to allow safe products to enter the market. Consumers should not fear harm from using a product that they have purchased and are using per the instructions. This duty to the consumer also applies to dangerous medications and defective medical devices.
If you have been harmed by a consumer product, including medication or medical device, schedule a FREE CASE EVALUATION with an Elizabeth personal injury lawyer. Your attorney can help you seek out the compensation you deserve from being injured by a dangerous product.
If your dangerous product, medication, or device is part of a class action lawsuit, your attorney will advise you of the best way that you can seek compensation. If your injuries and losses are similar to those of other people in the class action suit, they may recommend you join the action. If your injuries are different, your attorney may advise you to seek compensation in a separate suit against the manufacturer.
Nursing Home Abuse
Most often, deciding to put a loved one on a nursing home is never an easy decision. We place trust in those caring for our elderly or frail loved ones. Nursing homes were designed as care facilities for those in the most need of assistance. As the population ages, the increase in abuse and injuries in these homes is staggering and heart breaking. It is wrong and only through action seeking justice can we hope to stop these negligent occurrences.
Many nursing homes are understaffed or have unqualified staff members working with the patients. This often leads to injuries of the patients. If your loved one has been harmed while under the care of a nursing home, you are encouraged to contact an Elizabeth personal injury lawyer about the event.
Your attorney will make sure that an investigation is conducted and that the right authorities are notified of the abuse. The attorney will then seek compensation on behalf of your loved one for their injuries and losses.
Employers are required to carry an insurance policy on their employees in case the employee becomes injured at work. Worker’s compensation policies cover medical care and a portion of the lost wages of the employee while they make a recovery.
Although the program was initially designed to be very simple to use in New Jersey, it has become anything but easy to make a claim. The New Jersey system limits the rights of the employees, often reduces the amount of compensation they can receive for their lost wages and is well known for denying benefits.
If you have been injured while performing your job, contact an Elizabeth personal injury attorney about your case. During your FREE CONSULTATION, your attorney will discuss with you how they can help manage your case through the system so that you receive all of the benefits you are entitled to under the law.
Wrongful death is a death that occurs as a result of a personal injury. The death does not have to be instant; it only has to be directly related to the injuries received in the personal injury accident.
New Jersey law allows certain family members to seek compensation for their losses when they lose a loved one to a wrongful death event. These cases are meant to help the surviving family members overcome the financial burdens they now face as a result of their loss.
SPEAK WITH AN ATTORNEY if you believe that the death of your loved one may fall under a wrongful death action. Your attorney can review the information of the case and help you make the right decisions to seek compensation for your losses.
Your Elizabeth personal injury lawyer Will Fight For Compensation
Your Elizabeth personal injury lawyer will discuss with you the many different types of compensation that you may be entitled to under the law. Every case is different, and some forms of compensation may not apply to your case. Your attorney may seek compensation for one or more of the following types of compensation:
All personal injury cases will seek compensation for medical expenses. This will include all medical expenses that you have had since the date of the accident and any future medical care you may need to treat the injury.
All wages that you have not received due to your injury will be included in any compensation package. If you have employer contributions to your retirement plan or your medical insurance, your Elizabeth personal injury lawyer may seek compensation for these losses as well.
Future Earning Capacity
When injuries prevent you from returning to work, cause you to return at a lower capacity, or make you change to a position that can accommodate your injury that is less paying than your current position, your attorney will seek compensation for these losses. This type of compensation may or may not apply to your case.
Pain and Suffering and Mental Anguish
Pain and suffering and mental anguish is a very personalized form of compensation. Since this is a non-economic type of compensation, your attorney will work with experts in the medical field as well as to conduct an extensive interview with you throughout the case period to see how the injury has impacted your life. Through this gathered information, your attorney will come up with a logical and fair compensation amount.
Loss of Services
If the injuries you have received have caused you hardships with services or chores you perform around the home, you may be able to receive compensation for these losses as well. If you now need to pay someone to fix the car, walk the dog, make home repairs, clean the home, care for the children or an elderly parent because you can no longer do these jobs, your attorney will make a claim for lost services.
Loss of Consortium
When the way you interact with your spouse has been changed as a result of the injury, you are entitled to receive compensation for your loss of consortium. Your Elizabeth personal injury lawyer may also file a separate lawsuit on behalf of your spouse for their own claim for this type of loss.
There may be additional forms of compensation available to you based on the information in your case or the type of injuries you received. Schedule a FREE CASE EVALUATION to learn how an Elizabeth personal injury lawyer can help you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
