Wayne, NJ residents who have been injured due to the negligence of another often wonder:
A legal dispute can provide you with the financial compensation you need to cover the costs of your injury. In many cases, this can include medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, property damage and more.
Let our personal injury attorneys review your case and answer all your questions today.
There is no requirement that a person injured in an accident retain an attorney to represent them. However, many individuals choose to retain a legal representative to represent their interests after an incident for 2 essential reasons:
1) They do not have the knowledge in the area of personal injury law, and
2) So that they can focus on physically recovering after being injured.
Insurance companies often try to discourage injury victims from getting a professional advocate because they know from several studies that people who hire an attorney consistently receive substantially higher compensation for their claim than those who settle their cases on their own.
Another reason people hire a professional advocate is that there are often post-settlement issues that can obstruct the payment of financial compensation.
Virtually all personal injury or wrongful death claims at Tus Abogados Locales are handled on a contingency fee basis.
In a contingency fee agreement, our legal fees are signed in a written document at the time we are retained by a client. This payment structure is based on the principle that we only get paid when we are able to secure a financial settlement on your behalf. If the client does not receive compensation, we do not charge a fee.
The value of a personal injury claim is comprised of financial losses as well as non-financial losses. Financial damages include medical bills, lost wages, and destruction of property. Non-financial damages include pain and suffering, impairment of physical faculties, deformity and lack of companionship or loss of quality of life.
There are other determinants that condition the weight of a claim such as the age of the victim, the amount of insurance coverage available, and the vicarious fault that caused the accident.
While we must admit the facts in each case, the goal is to present the most advantageous claim before the court or jury evaluating your claim.
Many injury cases are settled without a legal claim being filed in court. At NJ Injury Guys, we never pretend that claims are settled simply or quickly, so we prepare every matter as if it could go to court.
From the very moment we are retained for a dispute, we obtain important evidence to establish how an accident occurred and how the behavior of one or more individuals or groups may have contributed to the incident. This means collecting official evidence, witness testimony, photos of the scene, and even medical reports and bills for all expenses.
