Why Should I Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Why Should I Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

It’s not always necessary to hire a personal injury lawyer. For instance, if you were involved in a car accident that didn’t cause any injuries and resulted in only minor property damage, you might not need legal representation. For just about any incident (whether a motor vehicle crash or otherwise) more serious than that, however, it could be in your best interest to hire an attorney. Here are a few reasons why:

Hiring a lawyer will help even the playing field with the opposing party. Most of the time, you’ll be up against an insurance company, a for-profit business with an entire legal department dedicated to protecting it against liability. A lawyer can negotiate effectively to increase the value of your claim and ensure you aren’t taken advantage of.

Personal injury attorneys have established relationships with powerful experts who can greatly increase the strength of your case. Some of these experts can help establish liability, while others can provide analysis regarding the extent of your damages.

Most often, the at-fault party will try to pin the blame on you for your injuries. An experienced personal injury lawyer can advocate for your rights and ensure you are protected from these kinds of allegations. 

You deserve time to recover from your injuries, not worry about the legal side of things. If you have legal representation, your attorney can handle virtually every aspect of your claim.

What Damages Are Available to Freehold Accident Victims?

What Damages Are Available to Freehold Accident Victims?

Under state law, you can recover both economic and non-economic damages after an accident in Freehold. These are called “compensatory damages” and are meant to make up for every impact your injuries have had (and will continue to have) on you.

Economic Damages

These damages reflect your financial losses, including:

  • Property damage
  • Lost wages
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Medical bills
  • Out-of-pocket expenses

Other economic damages may apply as well, based on the specific circumstances of the case.

What Non Economic Damages Are Available to Freehold Accident Victims?

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages represent the consequences of your injuries that aren’t as easy to quantify, such as:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental conditions such as PTSD and anxiety
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of quality of life

You can also potentially recover punitive damages, but only in rare cases. Unlike the other two types of damages, punitive damages are meant to “punish” the at-fault party for especially egregious acts. Punitive damages also entail a stronger evidentiary burden of proof standard.

What Our Clients Are Saying

What our clients are saying

My case would have negatively impacted my life if left in the hands of a lesser attorney. Charles Clark and his legal team are insightful, passionate and I would highly recommend the legal services of Clark & Noonan, LLC.

G Bladez

I hired Charley Clark to represent me. Overall, he did a wonderful job. He not only got me the best outcome I could get, but his prices were very good as well. He’s smart, answered my calls promptly and gained my trust. Even after his job was done. I like him. I highly recommend him…rnPositive experience and the office staff was excellent as well. Thanks again!

Diane S

Clark and Noonan, LLC represented me recently for a cell phone ticket. Michael Noonan was able to get my ticket downgraded to a lesser offense with minimal fees! I would highly recommend this firm to anyone looking to hire an attorney!

Jeff Reichenbecher

My family hired Mr. Clark after having a bad experience with another attorney who first took on my brother’s case. From the beginning Mr. Clark was very helpful in answering questions and providing us with information regarding my brother’s case (even before officially obtaining his services). He was always quick to respond to my emails and calls. I highly recommend using Mr. Clark’s services. I was pleased with his work and will forever be grateful for his services in my brother’s case.

Personal Injury Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?

    Tort law in New Jersey permits personal injury victims to file lawsuits in a wide range of circumstances. Regardless of whether the at-fault party acted intentionally, recklessly, or negligently (carelessly), you may have a valid claim to pursue. 

    The following are just a few examples of situations that could lead to a personal injury case:

    • Two or more vehicles are involved in a collision, and one driver ran a red light
    • A person becomes injured or sick after using a defective or dangerous product
    • While on public or private property owned by someone else, a person slips and falls and sustains an injury
    • A doctor or other healthcare provider makes a mistake, causing a patient to get hurt
    • A person is assaulted by another and suffers an injury (whether physical, mental, or emotional)

    Ultimately, we recommend that you contact us for a free consultation if you’re unsure whether you have a case. Once we’ve learned more about your accident and injuries, we can let you know how you should proceed and what your options are.

  • How Much Does It Cost To Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

    Our personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, as we understand that you may be facing difficult financial circumstances after your accident. With a contingency fee, you can hire our law firm without paying a dime upfront. Further, we only receive attorney’s fees in the event that we win compensation for your case.

    In other words, we only get paid if you do. If we obtain a monetary award or settlement for you at the end of your case, we will receive payment for our legal services as a percentage of that compensation. The percentage varies depending on the facts of the case, but is usually around 33%. 

    With this payment system, we are incentivized to maximize the value of your claim as much as possible. Learn more about how the contingency fee arrangement will work in your case by calling today to set up your free case review.

  • How Much Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?

    At the end of the day, each personal injury case has its own unique value. No two accidents are quite alike, and victims experience the consequences differently as well. Some of the factors that may influence how much your case is worth include:

    • Who the at-fault party is in your case, and their ability to compensate you
    • The strength of the evidence that supports your compensation claim 
    • Whether any insurance policies apply to your case, and what their conditions are
    • The severity of the injuries you have sustained
    • Whether you share any partial responsibility for the accident

    During your free consultation, we can provide you with more pertinent information regarding how much your particular case may be worth. It’s important not to demand compensation from the opposing party until you understand your case’s value – otherwise, you may recover less money than you are entitled to.

  • What If I’m Partially at Fault for the Accident?

    You can still recover compensation if you are partially at fault for your accident in Freehold, as long as you aren’t mostly at fault. New Jersey follows a “modified comparative negligence” standard with a 51% bar to recovery.

    Under New Jersey law, you may be assessed a percentage of blame for your accident. If this percentage is 51% or higher, you will be barred from recovering compensation. However, you can still get (possibly reduced) damages if you are assigned less blame than that. For example, if you are assigned 20% responsibility, your damages can be reduced by 20%.

    If you hire a personal injury lawyer, they can advocate for you and aim to ensure you’re assigned as little blame as possible. That way, you can still get as much compensation as possible for your claim.

  • How Long Do I Have To File a Lawsuit After an Accident in New Jersey?

    New Jersey’s statute of limitations establishes how long you have to file a lawsuit after sustaining a personal injury. By default, you’ll have two years from the date of your accident to pursue legal action against the at-fault party in a court of law. If you file your lawsuit after the deadline, the court can dismiss your lawsuit – and you’ll essentially lose your ability to get compensation.

    However, there are exceptions to New Jersey’s statute of limitations for certain cases and circumstances. To best protect your rights, contact our legal team as soon as you can for help determining the time limit for your case.

  • Will My Personal Injury Case Go to Trial?

    It’s highly unlikely that your personal injury case will go to trial. The vast majority of cases are resolved through settlement negotiations. Oftentimes, it’s not even necessary to file a lawsuit.

    However, keep in mind that it can be to your advantage to file a lawsuit and take your case to court. Once we file a lawsuit, we can obtain potentially critical evidence in support of your claim via the pretrial discovery process. Note, too, that cases can still settle even after a lawsuit has been filed. 

    In addition, filing a lawsuit can potentially persuade the at-fault party to increase their settlement offer to you if they aren’t willing to dedicate the time and resources a trial entails. 

    At the end of the day, when you choose us to represent you, we’ll do everything in our power to help you achieve your desired outcome. Give us a call today to learn about your legal options after an accident.

  • How Long Will My Injury Case Take?

    While some personal injury cases conclude in just a matter of days or weeks, others can take much longer. The facts and circumstances surrounding your case will dictate the amount of time it takes to reach a final outcome.

    One primary factor is the date at which you will reach Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI). This is the point at which you will recover as much as possible from your injuries. Reaching MMI before you demand compensation from the opposing party is ideal, as only at that stage can you determine all of your damages.

    If your case requires filing a personal injury lawsuit, it may also take more time to resolve. However, sometimes taking a case to court is the best way to get full compensation.

    For insight into how long your case might take, we encourage you to contact our law office for a free consultation.

What Is Negligence and How Do I Prove It?

What Is Negligence and How Do I Prove It?

Negligence is a legal term of art that essentially means “carelessness.” Most personal injury cases require that you prove the at-fault party was negligent. There are four legal elements necessary to establish negligence liability:

  • Duty of Care – Were you owed a duty of care by the opposing party? For instance, motorists owe a duty to other motorists in terms of driving safely and obeying the relevant traffic laws.
  • Breach of Duty – Did the opposing party violate their duty of care to you? One example would be a driver who goes through a stop sign without slowing down completely. 
  • Causation – You must prove that the at-fault party caused your injuries, both proximately and factually. 
  • Damages – You must prove that the opposing party’s breach of duty caused you to sustain injuries and/or financial losses.

You can provide various forms of evidence in favor of your negligence claim, such as video and photo footage, expert analysis, eyewitness testimony, and more. Our lawyers can gather the necessary evidence and handle the entirety of your claim. Call today for further information.

What Should I Do After an Accident?

What Should I Do After an Accident?

The following “dos and don’ts” regarding the aftermath of an accident can greatly influence the success of your legal claim:

  • Call 911 and report the accident to the police. Oftentimes, this is required by law – and a police report can be helpful during settlement negotiations.
  • Exchange insurance and contact information with the other driver. If there are any eyewitnesses, it can benefit your case to get their contact information as well.
  • Do not apologize to anyone for the accident, and do not accept any blame. Doing so could reduce your monetary award or even prevent you from getting compensation altogether.
  • Collect evidence of the accident scene if you can do so safely. For instance, taking photos and videos of your damages.
  • Receive medical attention, regardless of whether you have suffered an obvious injury. Some injuries only present symptoms later on, and medical evidence will support your claim.

It is also recommended that you contact an attorney for a free case review as soon as you can after the accident – and, ideally, before you go through any correspondence with an insurance company.
