Personal Injury Attorneys of New Jersey

Serving Clients and Communities throughout New Jersey

Life in New Jersey moves at a hectic pace. Many people rush to meet deadlines, and this can often lead to those same people and organizations not being focused on the task at hand, cutting important safety and regulation corners in the process. Many car accidents, construction accidents, motorcycle accidents, ladder and scaffolding accidents, and defective product injuries could easily have been prevented had the necessary steps been taken, and the proper regulations 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, helping them maximize recoveries and 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 you need in order to ensure the favorable outcome of any 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 Passaic County personal injury attorney must be able to prove the following three things:

  1. Accident – An accident occurred when, where, and how you say it did
  2. Injury – The accident in question caused physical injury to you. Furthermore, the full extent of those injuries must be determined and proven.
  3. Negligence – You must be able to prove that the reckless or negligent actions of another party were what lead to the accident and the resulting injuries.

NJ Personal Injury 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 for filing a personal injury claim after an accident, which in New Jersey is two years.

While the legal limit is two years, the fact of the matter is that the sooner you contact a personal injury attorney and begin the claims process, the better. 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.
