Skilled Personal Injury Lawyers Dedicated to Holding Negligent Parties Accountable in Bayonne, NJ Accident Cases
It can happen in an instant—one moment, you’re driving down the road and the next, you find yourself seriously injured in an accident caused because someone else wasn’t paying attention to others on the road. Injuries caused by car accidents, slip and fall accidents and even bicycle accidents can leave you suffering from serious personal injuries for years into the future, and in particularly serious cases, you may never fully recover. Unfortunately, personal injuries also create financial consequences in the form of medical expenses, physical therapy and rehabilitative care costs and time away from work.

CourtLaw Personal Injury Lawyers Advocate for Maximum Compensation for Bayonne Accident Victims
At CourtLaw, we fight to recover the maximum available compensation in every Bayonne personal injury case that we take on. The compensation available in your personal injury case will depend upon the specific facts of your case, and may include:
- Medical expenses. Compensation for medical expenses includes both past and anticipated future expenses relating to your injuries, including medical devices, prescription drugs, in-home care and more.
- Physical therapy. Many personal injuries require intense rehabilitative therapy in order to recover fully, and those expenses are also rightfully includable in your compensation package.
- Wages and salary. Serious injuries often require time away from work, for which you should be reimbursed by the negligent party. We will also fight to recover damages to reflect any lost earning capacity if you are unable to return to your previous employment because of the injury.
- Loss of enjoyment of life. When your injury keeps you from doing the things that you previously enjoyed, you should be compensated for that intangible loss.
- Pain and suffering. The availability of damages for pain and suffering will depend upon the extent of your injuries, required treatment and any other extenuating factors in your case.
- Loss of consortium or financial support. In a wrongful death case, you may be entitled to compensation to reflect the impact of the loss of your loved one.

Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Claims in Bayonne, NJ
FAQ: Doesn’t New Jersey’s no-fault law mean that I can’t recover compensation except through my own insurance coverage if I was injured in Bayonne?
Not necessarily. If you suffered personal injuries in a motor vehicle accident or even a bicycle accident, your available car insurance may provide compensation for at least a portion of your expenses. If your injuries were severe, however, you may also have the right to pursue action against the person who caused the accident. The form this action will take will depend upon the particular circumstances but can be a claim against that party’s insurance policy or a personal injury lawsuit.
FAQ: Should I accept the insurance company’s settlement offer?
Before agreeing to any settlement, you should first discuss your case with an experienced personal injury lawyer. In some cases, the settlement offer may fairly reflect the expenses relating to your injuries, but in most cases, the insurance company will try to settle for far less than what your case is actually worth. A lawyer with experience evaluating these offers will help make sure that you receive sufficient compensation in your case, whether through negotiations with the insurance company or through an eventual personal injury lawsuit.
