Car accidents may be the result of many different types of behaviors and situational circumstances. When negligence — such as distracted driving or speeding — causes or contributes to a car accident, the injured victim may recover damages by filing a personal injury claim.
Personal injury law is an area of law that protects individuals that are harmed in accidents caused by negligence. In the case of a car accident, negligent behavior includes — but is not limited to — driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs, driving over the speed limit, and distracted driving. When the negligent behavior can be proven, then the injured victim may file a personal injury claim in the New Jersey civil court to recover compensation for their injuries and other losses.
When you are involved in a car accident in New Jersey and the accident was caused by negligence on the part of another driver, you may recover compensatory damages for your injuries and other losses.

When a loss has an immeasurable value, such as pain and suffering, then the New Jersey court will assign a financial value to that loss based on the unique circumstances of your accident.
