Paterson Personal Injury Lawyer
New Jersey Personal Injury Lawyers with a Proven Track Record of Success Represent Accident Victims in Paterson
Regardless of the type of accident in which you were involved, accidents that result in personal injury can take an immense toll on you, as the accident victim, as well as your family and financial security. Car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents and even slip and fall accidents can disrupt your life in many ways, as well as result in substantial medical expenses.
If the accident occurred because of someone else’s failure to act responsibly, you may be entitled to monetary compensation to compensate you for the additional expenses, as well as the physical and emotional suffering, that the injury has caused. This compensation includes all out-of-pocket expenses related to the injury, such as medical expenses and physical therapy costs, as well as compensation for the intangible pain and suffering, embarrassment and frustration caused by the accident.

Negligence Causes Many Personal Injuries in Paterson, NJ Accidents
The negligence of a third party causes many accidents that injure victims in Paterson and elsewhere in New Jersey.

Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Claims in Paterson, NJ
FAQ: What if I sustained my personal injury in a car accident in Paterson, but the at-fault party does not have sufficient car insurance?
We handle cases involving clients injured in accidents where the at-fault party was uninsured or underinsured. Practically, the first step will be to file an insurance claim with your own insurance company. You may also have uninsured motorist coverage on your own insurance policy, which will provide additional compensation if your primary insurance is insufficient to cover all expenses. We can also help you pursue a personal injury lawsuit to recover additional compensation if necessary in your case.
FAQ: The insurance adjuster asked me to sign a release-statement and has offered to pay my medical expenses. Should I sign?
No. By signing the release and accepting the insurance company’s offer to pay your medical expenses, you are essentially settling your case with the insurance company—meaning that you will not be entitled to pursue a claim for further compensation even if your medical expenses in the future are much higher than anticipated. In many cases, the insurance adjuster will call you after your injury and attempt to pay your expenses—if this is the case, call our personal injury lawyers as soon as possible and refrain from accepting any offer. It may be a sign that your case is actually worth much more than the insurance adjuster is offering.
