Personal Injury & Accident Resources

If you have been injured in an accident, you likely face physical, mental, and emotional challenges. You are probably wondering when to hire a personal injury lawyer. If you suffered a sudden injury that changed your life, you most likely weren’t prepared for the consequences of someone else’s actions. You may face uncertainty related to returning to work, supporting your family, and dealing with your pain. This situation suggestions you file a personal injury lawsuit in Pennsylvania or New Jersey.

If you have never been in an accident before, you may not realize that you could be eligible to receive compensation for your accident. Our resource guide can help you determine your legal options surrounding a personal injury claim in Pennsylvania or New Jersey.


Do I Have a Personal Injury Claim?

A personal injury claim has three basic requirements:

  • The person responsible for the accident demonstrated negligence. Negligence, which can be unintended, means a person didn’t uphold a standard of care to avoid causing injury to someone or damages to someone’s property.
  • The responsible party’s negligence caused the injury. The link between another party’s negligence and your injuries needs to be clear, making this requirement important. For example, a driver runs a stop sign and crashes into another driver’s car, causing the second driver to sustain a concussion, the first driver’s negligence in ignoring the stop sign clearly led directly to the second driver’s concussion.
  • The injury caused harm. If the injury from an accident causes the injured party to incur medical bills or miss work, those are two negative consequences caused by the injury. If the accident was the result of negligence, the negative consequences are compensatory damages.
