It is important to hire a personal injury attorney if you wish to obtain maximum compensation for your injuries.

From there, your lawyer will use proven legal strategies to obtain the outcome you need to finally move forward.

One of the challenges you may face during your personal injury claim is the comparative negligence defense. In New Jersey, the modified comparative negligence rule states that your own fault for the accident could reduce your recovery award. If the defendant succeeds in proving your comparative negligence, he or she will owe you less in financial compensation. You can still recover partial compensation, however, as long as your degree of fault is less than 50%.
Another potential hurdle to be aware of is New Jersey’s statute of limitations. If you wait too long to bring your cause of action, you may find that your statute of limitations (deadline to file) has expired. Under New Jersey law, you only have two years from the date of your accident to bring a personal injury claim. Your deadline could be longer or shorter, however, based on the specific circumstances of your case.
