What is personal injury law in New Jersery?
If you have been physically injured as a result of another individual’s negligence, you may seek compensation under the law. Personal injury law revolves around the subject of liability and damages and any negligence must be proven. Personal injuries may be the result of any of the following:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Marine accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Nursing home negligence
- Slip and fall accidents
- Defective products
- Medical malpractice
- Workplace incidents
- Dog bites
These events may cause harm to an individual due to the negligence of another person.
How much time do I have to file a lawsuit in NJ?
Individual states have their own statute of limitations, which is the length of time the injured party has to file a lawsuit in the civil court system. In the state of New Jersey, the personal injury statute of limitations is two years from the date the injury occurred. It is very important to note this deadline. Failure to file a lawsuit against the negligent party within that two-year window will mean that your case will not be heard at any point in the future nor do you have any right to compensation.
