Life in New Jersey moves at a hectic pace. Many people rush to meet deadlines, and this can often lead to a lack of focus on the task at hand, and an increased likelihood that they will cut important safety regulations in the process. Many car accidents, construction accidents, motorcycle accidents, ladder and scaffolding accidents, and defective product injuries could easily have been prevented if the proper regulations had been followed.
For anyone injured in an accident involving the reckless or negligent actions of another party, the good news is that you have the legal right to recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost income and wages, and for your emotional and physical pain and suffering through a personal injury claim.
At The Law Office of Fredson Statmore Bitterman, we put our extensive experience and legal knowledge to work for all of our clients in order to help them maximize the compensation they recover in order to protect their financial future. When it comes to seeking full and fair compensation from insurance companies, our firm has the tenacity, track record of success, and compassion for our clients that is necessary to ensure a favorable outcome in your personal injury claim.

Requirements for a New Jersey Personal Injury Case
In order for any New Jersey personal injury case to be successful, you and your attorney must be able to prove the following three things:
- Accident — An accident occurred when, where, and how you say it did
- Injury — The accident in question caused physical injury to you. Furthermore, the full extent of those injuries must be determined and proven.
- Negligence — You must be able to prove that the reckless or negligent actions of another party were what led to the accident and the resulting injuries.
Statute of Limitations
In addition to the above requirements for a successful personal injury claim, there is also the factor of the New Jersey statute of limitations to consider. The statute of limitations is the time limit an individual has to file a personal injury claim after an accident. In New Jersey, the statute of limitations on personal injury claims is two years. This short period of time is why it is so important to contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. The longer you wait to file your claim, the more difficult it can become to prove that the accident in question was what caused your injuries, and recover compensation for those injuries.
