The Value of Your Personal Injury Claim
Compensation for your personal injuries depends on the circumstances of your accident and the extent of your damages. You may be entitled to receive compensation for the following damages:
Economic damages compensate you for your measurable financial losses. They may include reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses or lost income, including:
- Lost wages
- Past and future medical expenses
- Property damage
- Physical therapy or rehabilitation
- Long-term or in-home care
- Adjustments in your living expenses
Noneconomic damages, or general damages, refer to how the accident impacted your life. They are not always measurable. Therefore, we either estimate the value of your losses and negotiate the amount with the insurance company or await a judgment from the court. Noneconomic damages may include:
- Emotional trauma
- Disfigurement or disability
- Physical pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium/companionship
- Loss of enjoyment of life
Depending on your case, we may also file for punitive damages if we can determine that the at-fault party’s actions were malicious or grossly negligent. As your Englewood Cliffs personal injury lawyer, our goal is to help you get the maximum compensation possible based on your total losses.

How a Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help You With Your Case
Once you decide that you want assistance with your claim, our legal team gets to work. There are several ways that we can help you with your case, including:
Review Medical Records
We look at all medical records and speak with medical experts to determine the extent of your injuries. We also calculate your past and projected future expenses. Therefore, it is important to keep all your medical documents, bills, and receipts.
Gather Evidence of Fault and Liability
We conduct an exhaustive investigation to uncover the facts and determine fault and liability. Our lawyers may revisit the scene of the accident. We may also speak with eyewitnesses or expert witnesses who can testify on your behalf. Evidence may also include photos or video footage.
Prepare and Submit All Documents
If you are recovering from your accident, you may have limited capability to handle your own case. Our legal team can gather, prepare, and submit all documents on your behalf. We can manage your entire claim, making it easier for you to recover.
Negotiate a Fair Settlement
You are not required to speak with the insurance company at any time during your case. A personal injury lawyer can correspond with the insurer on your behalf to ensure proper handling of your case. We also negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance provider on your behalf.
If the insurance company rejects your claim or is unwilling to budge on their settlement offer, you may have the option of taking your case to court. An Englewood Cliffs personal injury lawyer with Maggiano, DiGirolamo & Lizzi P.C. can advocate for you and present a compelling case to the judge or jury.
The Deadline To File a Personal Injury Claim
According to New Jersey Statutes §2A:14-2, victims in personal injury accidents have up to two years to file a lawsuit and pursue compensation for damages through the courts. The two-year deadline starts from the date of the injury.
If you do not file a lawsuit within the two-year statute, then you may no longer be entitled to compensation. An Englewood Cliffs personal injury lawyer with Maggiano, DiGirolamo & Lizzi P.C. can prepare your case and ensure the filling of all paperwork before the deadline. We can also ensure that you adhere to all New Jersey regulations for filing personal injury claims.
