Common types of personal injury cases our law firm handles include:
If another party has injured you, schedule a personal injury consultation with one of our Hackensack personal injury lawyers. You may be entitled to substantial compensation for your injuries, losses, and damages.
Each personal injury case is unique. Until all evidence is reviewed and you have completed medical treatment, it is impossible to know the true value of your claim. Quoting a value for your claim before reviewing all evidence is not in your best interest. If an attorney tells you what your case is worth during an initial consultation, you should seek another legal opinion.
Instead, our legal team at Scura, Wigfield, Heyer, Stevens & Cammarota carefully and methodically gathers and reviews all information to ensure that the value of your claim includes all damages and losses you sustained because of the negligence and wrongdoing of another party. We want to maximize the chance that you receive full compensation for all damages when your claim is settled.
Types of damages common in a personal injury claim include:
The total of your claim depends on a variety of factors. The severity and type of your injury and your financial losses are two important factors used to calculate the value of a personal injury claim. Whether you sustained a permanent disability or impairment is another significant factor used to value an injury claim.
As experienced Hackensack personal injury attorneys, we understand how to maximize the value of a claim. Our legal team works closely with you to document each of your damages and losses to ensure every expense is included in our settlement demand to the other party.
Scura, Wigfield, Heyer, Stevens & Cammarota is not your typical personal injury law firm in Hackensack. We have a set of values that guide our attorneys and staff members as we work to help each of our clients. These beliefs describe our attitudes about our legal services and clients. They also form the basic building blocks that drive our actions as lawyers.
For example, we believe in solving your problems and helping you be in a better position when your case is complete than when you contacted our law firm. We believe in thinking outside the box to identify all potential solutions to a problem. We also believe that our clients deserve honest, trusted, and experienced attorneys who put their needs first and foremost during each phase of a personal injury case.
We understand that you may need the funds from your personal injury settlement as quickly as possible. An injury or accident often creates a financial hardship for the victim and the family. However, settling your claim too early can result in receiving thousands of dollars less than your claim is worth.
Even though it may be tempting to accept the first offer from an insurance adjuster, do not accept any settlement offers before your doctor has released you from care. Until your doctor releases you from care, you cannot know the full extent of any permanent impairment or disability. You also do not know the total of your current and future financial losses. You may be entitled to compensation for future damages if you are unable to work because of your injuries or you need continued medical and personal care because of a disability.
It is also best to consult a personal injury lawyer in Hackensack before you accept a settlement for your injury claim. Because our Hackensack personal injury lawyers are more concerned with your overall well-being, we do not settle cases until you complete your medical treatment and we have all evidence in hand. Only then can we fight for maximum compensation for your claim.
We want to help you hold the party responsible for your injury liable for wrongdoing and negligence.
