Our New Jersey Personal Injury Lawyer Wants to Help You Recover the Compensation You Deserve
After being in a serious accident, there is great comfort in having a lawyer on your side who cares about you and the outcome of your case.
At the Law Offices of Anthony J. Vecchio LLC, our New Jersey personal injury lawyer will always put you first and work hard to get you the compensation that you deserve.
Our Personal Injury Practices Areas
Car accidents are a leading cause of injury in New Jersey and throughout the country. Many of our clients have been seriously injured in car accidents. We can help you handle the claims process and New Jersey’s no-fault law.
While you may have 100% confidence in your doctor, doctors sometimes make errors that cause harm to patients. When they do, a patient may have cause of action for a medical malpractice case.
Assault is a crime, and it can lead to injuries that call for a civil personal injury claim, separate from a criminal case. Our lawyer can help you file a civil action after an assault.
If a dog bit you in a public or private place, you can hold the dog owner liable for your losses.
Slip and Falls
Slip and falls are common and can be the source of severe or even fatal injuries. When a slip and fall occurs as a result of a dangerous condition, the property owner may be to blame.
Most workers who are injured on the job will file a workers’ compensation claim. In some cases, a worker may also have a third-party liability suit. This allows recovery for the full value of damages, including pain and suffering damages.
Motorcycles may be fun to ride, but they can be dangerous. Our lawyer has seen the devastating effects of motorcycle crashes firsthand. We are here to advocate for you if you’ve been injured in a crash.
Large trucks are an important part of the economy, but when they collide with smaller cars, the effects can be catastrophic. Our lawyer will build your claim and help you hold the responsible party liable.
We also take on defective product cases, dangerous pharmaceutical and defective drug cases, premises liability cases, wrongful death claims, and more. Please call our lawyer if you or your loved one has suffered a serious injury.
The Basics of a New Jersey Personal Injury Case
A personal injury case can be complicated. Our lawyer is here to guide you through the basics and make sure that you follow all protocols and procedures and that you act in a way that is consistent with your best interests. Some of the basics of a personal injury claim in New Jersey that you need to know are:
What You Need to Prove
You cannot bring an injury claim just because you have suffered an injury. You must be able to prove that you have suffered an injury because of another party’s negligence. The four elements are:
- duty of care
- breach of duty of care
Types of Damages You Can Recover
If you are injured and can prove that your injuries are someone else’s fault, you can hold that party liable for the full value of your economic and noneconomic losses. This includes pain, suffering, medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and more.
The modified comparative fault rule in New Jersey states that you cannot get compensation if you are found to be more than 50% at fault for your injuries. Your recoverable damages will also be reduced in proportion to your degree of fault. This rule is usually only applied in cases that go to trial.
How Much Time You Have to File Your Claim.
The statute of limitations caps the amount of time you have to file a civil action. In New Jersey, the statute of limitations is two years from the date of your injury. Waiting longer than two years to file your case will bar you from recovery.
How Our New Jersey Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help
Our New Jersey personal injury lawyer will handle all aspects of your case and will work hard to get you a fair settlement. Our job includes:
Investigating Your Case
We will investigate your accident to determine what happened and who’s to blame.
Calculating Your Damages
Before we can issue a demand letter to an insurer, we must calculate your damages and determine how much your case is worth. This way, you’ll know if you’re getting a fair settlement offer.
Identifying Sources of Compensation
We will determine who’s liable for your harm and identify all potential sources of compensation. The more sources of recovery available, the greater your total settlement will be.
Negotiating Your Settlement
It is our responsibility to review all settlement offers to ensure they are fair. If a settlement offer is not fair, we can head to the negotiation table and negotiate for a large amount.
