If you are seriously injured due to someone else’s negligence (i.e. in a car accident, due to medical malpractice, etc.), you could have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit. In order to have a solid case, you must prove the following things:
- You suffered harm (in the form of an injury, property damage, etc.)
- The other person acted carelessly (i.e. showed “negligence”)
- The other person’s negligence was the cause of the accident
Monetary awards in a personal injury case are referred to as “damages.” Damages in a New Jersey personal injury case are divided into two categories: compensatory and punitive damages. Compensatory damages are designed to reimburse the plaintiff for losses suffered in the accident, whether they be financial, physical, or emotional losses. These damages can include compensation for:
- Current and future medical treatment: includes hospitalization costs, ongoing treatment expenses, rehabilitation costs, and any expected future medical expenses
- Lost wages: compensation for wages lost while out of work due to the injury, as well as decreased earning capacity in the future if the injury will continue to affect the victim
- Loss of enjoyment of life: covers loss of enjoyment of day-to-day activities, recreation, hobbies, and exercise
- Pain and suffering: the physical and emotional pain caused by the accident, including the pain of the physical injuries and ongoing emotional trauma
- Wrongful death: compensation for the family or estate of someone killed by a negligent party
