Find out if you have a good case
Although some accidents are easily explained and claims for compensation quickly resolved, many personal injury claims in Clifton and throughout Passaic County are often far more complicated. Sometimes it can be difficult even for injured parties involved to know with any certainty who or what caused the accident, especially if no one else was around when your accident occurred. Even if you believe you know what caused your accident and who is to blame, you cannot successfully pursue a claim for compensation without hard evidence that proves who should be held legally responsible for injuries and damages resulting from an accident. After you’ve been involved in an accident through no fault of your own, it is critical both that you understand your legal rights and options and identify who may be held liable for your injuries and how to prove that liability.

New Jersey law generally precludes a person injured on the job from filing a personal injury lawsuit against his or her employer (unless the injury was caused by the employer’s intentional actions); instead, an injured employee is limited to filing a workers’ compensation claim against his or her employer. However, when a work accident is caused by a third party, such as a negligent motorist or defective piece of equipment or machinery, you may be entitled to pursue a personal injury claim against that third party, which can allow you to recover compensation for damages that aren’t covered by workers’ compensation benefits.
Immediately after an accident, you may feel as though you were not seriously injured and whether you should even bother considering a personal injury claim. However, some injuries can take hours, days, or even weeks to begin displaying pain and other symptoms — by that time, you may have lost out on critical evidence, legal rights, and options for pursuing compensation. That is why it is important that you get examined by a doctor soon after an accident to diagnose any injuries you may have suffered, which can help you and your personal injury attorney determine whether you may have a viable claim for compensation.
