Our Firm’s New Jersey Personal Injury Lawyers

Our firm’s New Jersey personal injury lawyers in our firm focus on representing individuals who have been physically or psychologically injured as a result of the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, company, government agency, or any other entity within the state of New Jersey. Our firm’s attorneys’ primary goal is to help their clients receive compensation for their injuries, which can include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. Our firm has a Civil Trial Attorney Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey and two retired Superior Court Judges serving as Of Counsel. We use cutting edge technology, have a court room on premises for mock jury and focus group studies to best fine tune the presentation of our cases and maximize value. The Judges in our firm consult and advise on how to best present our cases and craft legal argument.

The responsibilities of our New Jersey personal injury lawyers encompass a wide range of activities, including:

La mayoría de los años, en Estados Unidos, más de 2,35 millones de personas sufren lesiones en accidentes automovilísticos, lo que genera un costo de aproximadamente $230 mil millones. Las consecuencias de un accidente automovilístico pueden ser catastróficas y, aunque tu proveedor de seguros puede cubrir algunos de los daños, puede que llegues a ser responsable de gastos adicionales. Si la negligencia de alguien fue la causa del accidente y las lesiones posteriores, es posible que puedas realizar una demanda por facturas médicas, salarios perdidos, dolor y sufrimiento, y más.

Cuando un peatón y un vehículo chocan entre sí, el vehículo siempre saldrá ganando. Cuando vas a pie, no eres rival para un automóvil, camión o motocicleta. Incluso si el vehículo que impactó viajaba a baja velocidad, es probable que salgas con algún tipo de lesión. Y si más de un vehículo se ve involucrado en un choque con un peatón, el resultado puede ser catastrófico. Si has experimentado alguna de las siguientes lesiones en un accidente de peatones, puedes calificar para una compensación por lesiones personales:

  1. Case Evaluation: We assess every case to determine its merits and the potential for compensation or recovery for that individual client. Every case and client is different and each one has to be evaluated in light of what happened with the incident and injury and how it affects that client. The focus is always on the clients and the effect on their lives. We analyze the circumstances of the injury, identifying the parties responsible, and evaluating the impact of the injury on the client’s life.
  2. Gathering Evidence: To build a strong case, we collect evidence that supports the client's claim. This can involve obtaining medical records, accident reports, witness statements, and expert testimony. Right after an accident is critical in collecting that evidence. Going out to the scene is critical in most cases.
  3. Legal Advice: We provide expert legal advice to our clients regarding their rights and the legal options available to them. This includes guiding clients through the complexities of New Jersey's personal injury laws and advising on the best course of action.
  4. Representation in Court: While many personal injury cases are settled out of court, some go to trial. In these instances, our firm represents clients in court, presenting evidence, arguing the case before a judge or jury, and aiming to secure the best possible outcome for the client.
  5. Negotiation: A significant part of our lawyers’ roles involve negotiating with the opposing party or their insurance company to reach a fair settlement. This requires strong negotiation skills to ensure that the client’s rights are protected and that they receive adequate compensation for their injuries.
  6. Client Support: Throughout the legal process, we provide support and guidance to our clients, helping the client navigate the emotional and financial challenges that often accompany personal injury cases. Our firm’s cutting edge technology platform helps to streamline and make case presentation more effective.

By focusing on these key areas, the lawyers at our firm play a crucial role in ensuring that individuals who have suffered due to the actions or negligence of others can achieve justice and financial support to aid in their recovery.

Who Can File a Personal Injury Claim in NJ

When accidents happen and injuries occur, it's crucial to know your rights and understand who is eligible to file a personal injury claim in New Jersey. At Scura Wigfield Heyer Stevens & Cammarota, LLP, we are dedicated to guiding you through the complexities of personal injury law, ensuring that you are fully informed and empowered to seek the justice and compensation you deserve. Here, we break down the key criteria for who can file a personal injury claim in the Garden State.

Victims of Negligence or Intentional Harm

The most straightforward category of individuals who can file a personal injury claim are those who have been directly injured due to someone else's negligence or intentional actions. This includes, but is not limited to, victims of:

  • Car accidents
  • Slip and fall incidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Workplace accidents
  • Product malfunctions
  • Assault and battery
  • Legal Malpractice

If you've suffered physical, emotional, or financial harm because another party failed to act responsibly, you likely have grounds to file a personal injury claim.

Remember, however, that with injuries that occur at your place of employment you do not have to show someone else’s fault caused the injury. If the injury occurred at work, you have a workers compensation claim even if the injury was your fault. If an injury occurs at work for any reason, workers compensation insurance covers your claims.

Representatives of the Injured Party

In cases where the injured party is unable to file a claim themselves due to the severity of their injuries, a legal guardian, close family member, or a legally appointed representative may do so on their behalf. This is especially relevant in instances involving minors, individuals with significant disabilities, or those who are incapacitated.

Executors or Administrators of an Estate

In the tragic event that an individual passes away from their injuries, the executor or administrator of the deceased's estate can file a wrongful death claim. This type of claim seeks compensation for the survivors' loss, such as funeral expenses, lost wages, and loss of companionship. It's important to note that New Jersey has specific laws governing who can be considered a dependent and, thus, who is eligible to receive such compensation.

Understanding New Jersey's Comparative Negligence Rule

New Jersey operates under a "comparative negligence" rule, which means that if you are found to be partially at fault for the accident that caused your injury, your compensation may be reduced by your percentage of fault. However, as long as your share of the blame is 50% or less, you can still recover damages. Gathering evidence right from the onset is critical to gathering the proof to overcome that threshold as to fault of the other party.

Next Steps: Consult with an Experienced Personal Injury Attorney

Determining your eligibility to file a personal injury claim and understanding the nuances of New Jersey's laws can be challenging. That's where we come in. At Scura Wigfield Heyer Stevens & Cammarota, LLP, our experienced personal injury attorneys are here to provide you with the advice, support, and representation you need to navigate your claim successfully. Whether it is meeting with our Certified Civil Trial Attorney so certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey or having the power of one of our retired Judges strategizing on your case and the best ways to present it, we are committed to doing the best job to help you recover.

Don't navigate the aftermath of an injury alone. If you or someone you know is considering filing a personal injury claim in New Jersey, contact us today for a free consultation. Let us help you understand your rights and take the first step towards securing the compensation and justice you deserve.

Types of NJ Personal Injury Lawyer Cases We Handle: From Auto Accidents to Product Liability

At Scura Wigfield Heyer Stevens & Cammarota, LLP, we understand that personal injury law encompasses a wide range of cases, each with its unique challenges and nuances. Our experienced team provides comprehensive legal support to individuals across New Jersey, helping them navigate the complexities of their personal injury claims. Here, we delve into the various types of personal injury cases we handle, underscoring our commitment to securing justice and compensation for our clients.

1.Car Accidents

Auto accidents are among the most common types of personal injury cases. Whether you're a driver, passenger, cyclist, or pedestrian, if you've been injured due to someone else's negligence on the road, you may be entitled to compensation. Our team adeptly handles cases involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians, focusing on obtaining the best possible outcome for our clients.

2.Slip and Fall Accidents

Property owners in New Jersey have a legal duty to keep their premises safe. If you've been injured due to a slip, trip, or fall on someone else's property—whether it's a wet floor, icy sidewalk, or another hazard—you may have a valid claim for compensation. Our attorneys are skilled in navigating premises liability law and can help you understand your rights.

3. Workplace Injuries

Workplace injuries can occur in any job, from construction sites to office environments. While workers' compensation may cover some of the damages, there are instances where additional legal action is necessary. Our firm assists clients with workers' compensation claims and explores all avenues for securing additional compensation for workplace injuries. Remember that with workers compensation claims, you do not have to prove fault of the employer. If you suffered injury at the job, that is all that is required to recover.

4.Product Liability Claims

Manufacturers and distributors have a responsibility to ensure their products are safe for consumers. If you've been injured by a defective or dangerous product, you may have a product liability claim. Any part in the chain of distribution of that defective product is potentially responsible for your injury. Our legal team can help you seek compensation for your injuries, holding the responsible parties accountable.

5.Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one is an unimaginable tragedy, especially when it's due to someone else's negligence. Wrongful death claims allow the deceased's family members to seek compensation for their loss, including funeral expenses, loss of income, and loss of companionship. Our compassionate attorneys guide families through this difficult process with sensitivity and dedication.

6.Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Claims

In New Jersey, Personal Injury Protection (PIP) is part of auto insurance policies, covering medical expenses and lost wages regardless of who was at fault in an accident. Navigating PIP claims can be complex, and our team ensures clients maximize their entitled benefits. If there are no available PIP benefits, then you need help navigating what potential health insurance or how to have your treatment for the injuries covered. The first concern is restoring your health and then seeking recovery for the harms and losses caused by the fault of another person or company.

Why Choose a NJ Personal Injury Lawyer Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Civil Trial Attorney

When faced with the aftermath of a personal injury, selecting the right attorney to represent your case is a critical decision that can significantly impact the outcome. One key factor to consider is whether the lawyer has been certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Civil Trial Attorney. This certification is a mark of distinction that sets certain attorneys apart, demonstrating their proficiency, and dedication in the field of civil litigation. Here’s why opting for a certified civil trial attorney from Scura Wigfield Heyer Stevens & Cammarota, LLP, can be instrumental in achieving justice and securing the compensation you deserve.

Recognized by The Supreme Court of New Jersey

The Supreme Court of New Jersey awards certification to lawyers who have demonstrated a high level of competence in their specific area of law. To become certified, an attorney must meet rigorous standards, including passing a comprehensive examination, demonstrating a substantial level of experience in civil trial law, and receiving favorable evaluations from judges and peers regarding their skills and ethical standards. Choosing a lawyer with this certification means you are being represented by someone recognized for their expertise and proficiency in civil litigation.

Proven Experience in Trial Cases

Certified civil trial attorneys possess a proven track record of handling and trying cases before a court. This experience is invaluable, especially in complex personal injury cases that may require intricate negotiations or potentially go to trial. Their hands-on experience and familiarity with the courtroom can greatly benefit your case, ensuring you have a seasoned advocate prepared to fight for your rights every step of the way.

Commitment to Continuing Legal Education

To maintain their certification, attorneys must participate in ongoing legal education. This commitment ensures that your lawyer stays current with the latest legal trends, strategies, and changes in the law, enhancing their ability to provide effective and up-to-date representation for your personal injury claim.

Ultimately, opting for a New Jersey personal injury lawyer certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Civil Trial Attorney offers you peace of mind. You can be confident that your case is in the hands of a highly qualified professional dedicated to securing the best possible outcome for you.

The Importance of Acting Quickly After an Injury

Suffering a personal injury can be a traumatic and life-altering event. Whether it's due to a car accident, slip and fall, workplace incident, or any other type of mishap, the steps you take immediately after can significantly impact your health, well-being, and ability to seek compensation. At Scura Wigfield Heyer Stevens & Cammarota, LLP, we cannot stress enough the importance of acting quickly after an injury. Here’s why timely action is crucial and how it can affect your personal injury claim in New Jersey.

1.Medical Attention is Paramount

First and foremost, seek medical attention as soon as possible. Not only is this critical for your health and safety, but medical records immediately following an accident provide concrete evidence of your injuries and their severity. This documentation is vital when filing a personal injury claim, as it establishes a direct link between the incident and your injuries.

2.Preservation of Evidence

The integrity of evidence can diminish over time. Physical evidence at the scene of an accident can be altered, lost, or destroyed, and witnesses' memories can fade, making their accounts less reliable. Acting quickly enables you or your legal representative to collect and preserve valuable evidence, including photographs of the scene, contact information of witnesses, and any relevant reports or documentation, which can be pivotal in building a strong case.

3.Statute of Limitations

New Jersey, like all states, has a statute of limitations for personal injury claims, which is generally two years from the date of the injury. Waiting too long to file a claim can result in losing your right to sue for compensation. Initiating legal proceedings promptly ensures that your claim is filed within the legal timeframe, preserving your right to compensation. There are different rules for different cases, such as a 90 day tort claim requirement against government entities before you can sue. As to certain entities such as Port Authority of NY/NY, there is a shorter one year statute of limitation. Bottom line, as soon as you sustain and injury and feel another may be responsible contact an attorney immediately.

4.Dealing with Insurance Companies

Insurance companies often reach out to injury victims soon after an incident, offering settlements that may seem appealing at first glance but are typically far less than what the claim is truly worth. They will try to get you to sign a release without seeing an attorney. Do not do it. Acting quickly by consulting with a personal injury attorney can provide you with the guidance needed to navigate these offers. A knowledgeable attorney can assess the fairness of a settlement offer and negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf to secure a compensation package that adequately covers your losses and damages.

5. Strategic Legal Planning

Early consultation with a personal injury lawyer allows for strategic planning of your case. It gives your attorney ample time to investigate the accident, consult with experts if necessary, and develop a compelling case strategy. This proactive approach can significantly enhance your chances of a favorable outcome, whether through settlement negotiations or at trial.

The Role of Scura Wigfield Heyer Stevens & Cammarota, LLP

Understanding the importance of acting quickly after an injury is just the first step. Partnering with an experienced legal team who can guide you through the process is essential. At Scura Wigfield Heyer Stevens & Cammarota, LLP, our skilled personal injury attorneys are committed to providing immediate, effective assistance to protect your rights and interests from the moment you entrust us with your case.

Maximizing Your Compensation & Understanding What You're Entitled To

Every case and person is different and multiple factors go into weighing what you are entitled to, the recovery of compensation and ways to maximize it.

Understanding the types of compensation available is the first step in maximizing your claim. Generally, personal injury victims may be entitled to recover damages for:

  1. Medical Expenses: This includes costs for emergency services, hospitalization, surgery, medication, rehabilitation, and any future medical care related to your injury.
  2. Lost Wages: If your injury has impacted your ability to work, you can claim compensation for lost wages, including future earning capacity.
  3. Pain and Suffering: These are non-economic damages for the physical pain and emotional distress you've endured due to the injury.
  4. Property Damage: If personal property was damaged as a result of the incident, compensation might cover repair or replacement costs.
  5. Punitive Damages: In cases of egregious negligence, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the wrongdoer and deter similar conduct in the future.
Collect All of the Evidence

The strength of your claim heavily depends on the evidence you gather. Comprehensive documentation of your injuries, medical treatments, communications with insurance companies, and witness statements can significantly impact the compensation you receive. Always keep detailed records and consider photographic or video evidence to support your claim.

Seek Immediate and Medical Care and Make Sure Your Injuries are Fully Evaluated

Seeking medical attention immediately after your injury not only prioritizes your health but also creates an official record of your injuries and their potential link to the accident. Follow your doctor's recommendations and keep records of all treatments, as consistent medical care is crucial evidence for proving the extent of your injuries.

Always Avoid Early Settlement Offers

Insurance companies often attempt to settle claims quickly and for as little as possible. Accepting an early settlement offer without fully understanding the extent of your injuries and their impact on your life can significantly undermine your compensation. It's vital to consult with a personal injury attorney before accepting any offers. We have had cases where the person had to have surgery much later after the accident so that if they had taken an early settlement, it would not have factored in that the client ultimately had to have surgery.

Don't Underestimate the Impact of Your Injury on You and Your Family’s Life

Personal injuries can have long-lasting effects on your quality of life. When seeking compensation, consider future implications, including ongoing medical care, changes in employment, and emotional distress. A comprehensive approach ensures you’re fully compensated for both current and future impacts of your injury.

Common Causes for NJ Personal Injury Lawyer Cases

Personal injuries can occur in many different ways, but certain scenarios arise frequently as common causes for legal action in New Jersey. Understanding these common causes can help individuals recognize when they may have a valid claim and the importance of seeking professional legal assistance. Here are some of the most frequent causes of personal injury cases we encounter in New Jersey.

1.Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents, including cars, trucks, motorcycles, and bicycles, are among the leading causes of personal injury claims in New Jersey. These accidents can result from various factors, such as distracted driving, speeding, drunk driving, and failure to obey traffic laws. Victims of motor vehicle accidents may suffer from severe injuries, requiring extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation, and may be entitled to compensation for their losses and suffering.

2.Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents are common occurrences that can lead to serious injuries, especially in icy or wet conditions prevalent in New Jersey's winters. Property owners have a legal duty to ensure their premises are safe for visitors. Failure to properly maintain property, clear snow and ice, or warn of hazardous conditions can result in liability for any injuries that occur as a result.

3.Workplace Accidents

While workers' compensation covers most injuries occurring in the workplace, there are situations where personal injury claims are viable. This can happen when an injury is caused by a third party's negligence, defective products, or when an employer's intentional act results in harm. Workplace accidents can range from construction site incidents to repetitive stress injuries in an office environment.

4.Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when healthcare professionals fail to provide a standard of care that results in harm to a patient. This can include surgical errors, misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, medication errors, and birth injuries. Medical malpractice cases are particularly complex, requiring the expertise of attorneys experienced in handling these types of claims.

5.Product Liability

Injuries resulting from defective or dangerous products can lead to personal injury claims under product liability law. This includes everything from defective vehicles and medical devices to unsafe children's toys and household products. Manufacturers, distributors, and retailers can be held liable for injuries that result from the use of a dangerous or defective product.

6.Dog Bites and Animal Attacks

New Jersey law holds dog owners strictly liable for bites and other injuries caused by their pets, provided the victim was legally on the property where the attack occurred. Dog bites can cause severe physical and emotional injuries, and victims may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, pain and suffering, and more. Because NJ law provides for strict liability this means you do not even have to prove the owner was negligent to recover for a dog bite injury.
