Personal injuries may happen when another person acts in a negligent way, and that behavior can cause you to suffer physically, emotionally, and financially. These personal injuries take many forms and may occur in a wide range of scenarios.
Consistent with every situation, however, is the idea that the victim should not have to pay for the aftermath of personal injuries they did not cause. This is the reason for personal injury law.
If you suffered an injury in an accident or other type of situation brought about by another person’s negligence in Jersey City, New Jersey, the personal injury lawyers from Maggiano, DiGirolamo & Lizzi P.C. can represent you in a fight to get the compensation which tort law may entitle you to.

Types of Damages a Personal Injury Victim Might Receive
We will need to know the details of your personal injury claim before we may be able to assign a value, but past victims in personal injury cases have received some or all of the following types of damages:
- Medical expenses (past, ongoing, and future)
- Lost income and benefits
- Diminished future potential earnings
- Replacement costs (lawn maintenance, childcare, household chores)
- Pain and suffering
- Diminished enjoyment of life
- Mental anguish
If you contact our personal injury law firm, we can talk to you about cases we have previously tackled but keep in mind that no two injury cases are exactly alike. Your car accident or slip and fall occurred under different circumstances and may have different physical and financial outcomes than another victim of those same kinds of accidents.

How a Jersey City Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help You
Do not be surprised if you get a call from the insurance company where the person who may have caused your injury holds a policy. They will want to talk to you about your accident and your injuries, and they may offer you a settlement.
Take note that whatever amount they offer you could be lower than the actual value of your case. If you accept the offer, you may be unable to pursue additional damages if your condition worsens.
We Will Take Care of All Aspects of Your Personal Injury Claim
If you let a Jersey City personal injury attorney from Maggiano, DiGirolamo & Lizzi P.C. handle your case, they can help handle different aspects of your case, including:
- Investigate your accident: collecting evidence and talking to witnesses to determine how it happened, who caused it, and how it has affected you.
- Build your case: using the collected evidence to establish that the at-fault party had a duty to keep you from harm, they violated that duty, this caused your injury, and you suffered damages.
- Draft a demand letter: itemizing all the losses and damages you may have sustained from your injury, then presenting your demand for compensation to the at-fault party’s insurer.
- Negotiate with the insurance adjuster: fighting to get a more accurate settlement offer.
- File a lawsuit: taking the matter to civil court if the insurance company refuses to agree to what we consider a fair settlement.
- Represent you in civil court: standing by your side and litigating your right to possibly receive a just award from the judge or jury.
We will do whatever is required to protect your legal rights—using the latest technology to build your case and the most credible experts to support your personal injury claim.
Your Statute of Limitations Clock is Ticking in New Jersey
When it comes to filing a personal injury lawsuit to recover damages from a personal injury, the New Jersey statute of limitations gives victims a limited amount of time to act. Generally, you may have two years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the at-fault party depending on the case.
While this may seem like plenty of time, you would be surprised how quickly two years flies by. You may be distracted by your physical recovery and trying to get your life back on track. Before you know it, your time will be up, and your options for moving forward with a personal injury lawsuit may be barred.
By hiring an accident lawyer soon after the incident, you may be able to get the process started sooner. A Jersey City personal injury lawyer can take more time to build a case and get access to a larger pool of usable evidence, especially since witnesses’ memories may fade over time.
