Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?
The best way to get an answer to this question is to attend a free consultation with a lawyer who can carefully go over the details of your situation. Apart from that, you can ask yourself (and answer) the following questions to start gaining a better understanding of whether you may have a personal injury claim:
- What caused the accident or injuries? – If the negligence of some other party (i.e., someone other than you) was primarily responsible for the accident, you may have claim.
- Where and when did the incident occur? Or when were the accident-related injuries discovered? – If the incident occurred in New Jersey within the last two years, again, you may have a claim.
- What have I done or not done following the accident? – This is more geared to evaluating whether you have sought medical treatment, talked with insurance companies, etc. in the aftermath of the incident.
Here, it’s also important to be aware that, even if you may have been partly responsible for the accident and injuries, you CAN still have a claim. So, do not make any assumptions, and do not put off contacting a lawyer.

How Soon Do I Have to File My Case?
It is generally in a prospective plaintiff’s best interest to file a claim as soon as possible, rather than waiting or putting it off. A few reasons for this include that:
- There tends to be more and stronger evidence available when the incident has occurred more recently (this can be especially true when the evidence includes eyewitness testimony).
- There are strict time limits (statutes of limitations) for filing personal injury claims. Missing the deadline can mean that injured people lose some (or all) opportunities to seek compensation.

How Much Is My Case Worth?
The value of a personal injury claim will depend on a number of different factors, only some of which include:
- How serious the injuries were
- The nature of the medical care that has been (and will be) needed to treat those injuries
- How much work the injured person has missed (and will miss)
- Whether the injuries have caused permanent losses and/or irreversible impacts to someone’s quality of life.
Additionally, the nature of the negligence and the liable parties can impact the value of a claim. For example, if an accident was caused by an extreme form or negligence or by a party who has a history of harmful negligence, punitive damages (in addition to compensatory damages) may be available.
Will My Case Go to Trial?
It depends on your claim, as well as your needs and goals. The lawyers at Maggiano, DiGirolamo & Lizzi, P.C. always seek to bring personal injury claims to the best possible outcomes.
While this often means that we attempt to work out favorable settlements before trial (so injured people can obtain compensation as soon as possible), our experienced attorneys are always ready to take a case to court and battle it out in trial whenever that may best serve our clients’ interests, cases and goals.
