A personal injury claim can arise from almost any type of mishap or accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence. Some of the most common types of personal injury lawsuits involve auto accidents, slip and fall injuries and product liability.
The statute of limitations is the time that the accident victim has to file a lawsuit after an injury. In New Jersey, the statute of limitations for personal injuries is only two years. When the injured person is a minor, however, the clock does not start running until he or she turns 18.
In cases in which a public entity or a public employee, such as a municipality or an employee of a municipality, may be responsible for a dangerous condition or an accident that caused one’s injuries, there are strict filing requirements, including a notice of claim that must be served on the responsible public entity and public employee within 90 days after the accident.
The duration of a case depends on many factors. Some cases settle quickly once the defendant and the defendant’s insurance company realize that our Middlesex County personal injury attorneys are ready, willing, and able to take the case to trial if our client does not receive fair compensation. Some cases are slower to resolve because it takes time to determine whether the accident victim’s injuries have caused permanent disabilities, or when there are multiple parties who may share in liability for the cause of the accident.
If a case is litigated, the pretrial period can take several months to over a year, as both sides gather evidence and file motions with the court. There may be additional time required depending upon the court’s calendar. No matter how long it takes, you can rest assured that our attorneys will continue to endeavor to obtain the compensation to which you are entitled.
