Piscataway Personal Injury Lawyer
Dedicated Personal Injury Lawyers Advocate for Clients Injured in Piscataway, NJ
In many accident cases where you or a loved one were seriously injured, the financial aftermath of those injuries can be nearly as devastating as the actual physical consequences. Personal injuries not only generate extensive medical bills, but a serious injury can also prevent you from returning to work and earning a living while you recover. This financial harm can, unfortunately, persist long after you have recovered physically—but if another party’s careless actions caused your accident, you should not be left alone to pick up the financial pieces.

At CourtLaw, Our Personal Injury Lawyers Focus on Getting Results for Accident Victims in Piscataway and Elsewhere in New Jersey
In a Piscataway personal injury case, “getting results” means maximizing the available compensation in your case so that the party who caused your accident is held financially responsible for the entire cost of that accident. We will work tirelessly to establish your right to full compensation, including compensation for the following basic forms of damages:
- Economic damages. Economic damages are your actual money outlays relating to the injury, as well as amounts that you would have received if not for the injury. These damages include medical bills, the estimated cost of future care, lost wages, loss of future income, and the cost of home modifications, medical devices, prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications and more.
- Non-economic damages. Accidents and injuries can be emotionally traumatizing, so New Jersey allows victims to recover non-economic damages such as pain and suffering, emotional distress or loss of enjoyment of life.
- Punitive damages. New Jersey caps the amount of punitive damages, designed to punish the defendant for especially egregious behavior, based on the level of otherwise available economic and non-economic damages.

Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Claims in Piscataway, NJ
FAQ: What are some defenses that the negligent party might use to avoid liability in my personal injury case?
One of the most common defense strategies that we see in personal injury cases is the defendant’s assertion that the victim either caused or contributed to the accident that caused the relevant injuries. While we will fight vigorously to negate this defense, it is important to remember that you are entitled to compensation under New Jersey’s comparative negligence law as long as you were not more than 50 percent at fault for the accident (although available damages will be reduced if it is established that you were partially at fault). In some cases, the defendant may also argue that you assumed the risk of injury by participating in the activity in question—for example if you were injured playing sports or engaging in some other recreational activity.
FAQ: Do I have to have a personal injury lawyer to pursue my right to compensation via a personal injury lawsuit?
No. You can technically pursue a formal lawsuit on your own, and can also take it upon yourself to negotiate on your own behalf with the insurance company or defense attorneys. However, most accident victims find that it is difficult to navigate the legal system without professional guidance. Further, insurance companies unfortunately often fail to take accident victims seriously until they have retained a reputable personal injury lawyer to advocate on their behalf. While the choice is ultimately yours, you may find that you are able to recover a much more fair compensation award with an attorney by your side.
