Personal Injury Cases in North Bergen
An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to help you identify monetary, physical, and mental losses—referred to as “damages”—suffered due to an accident. The vast majority of damages in personal injury cases are compensatory damages, designed to compensate the victim for losses, both tangible and intangible.
Types of compensatory damages include:
- Medical treatment: the cost of medical treatment stemming from the injury, including hospital treatment, ambulatory services, and any future medical costs associated with the injury
- Income: the loss of income from the accident, as well as any decreased earning potential in the future
- Property loss: the cost of personal items, including vehicles, clothing, and other property, that were damaged or lost as a result of the incident
- Pain and suffering: compensation for pain and discomfort suffered as a result of the accident, including any ongoing pain
- Emotional distress: compensation for the psychological distress of a particularly serious accident, including fear, anxiety, and loss of sleep
- Loss of enjoyment or consortium: compensation for losing the ability to enjoy day-to-day activities, recreational activities, or adverse effects on a plaintiff’s relationship to his or her spouse or children
In addition to compensatory damages, you can pursue punitive damages in cases when a defendant’s behavior was particularly egregious or reckless. Punitive damages usually apply when the defendant intended to cause harm or acted with reckless disregard for others.
There is no limit on compensatory damages in personal injury cases in New Jersey. The New Jersey Punitive Damages Act limits punitive damages to give times the amount of compensatory damages or $350,000 (whichever is greater).
