Camden, NJ – Aside from the emotional pain and stress that a sudden accident can cause for a victim and their family, there are also very serious financial consequences when a person is injured and may not be able to work, or requires extensive medical treatment. The legal process can be used to compensate victims for both their tangible losses tied to treatment and other expenses, as well non-economic losses tied to pain, trauma, and suffering. Personal injury law is the practice area of lawyers who focus on advocating on their client’s behalf to recover a settlement agreement or jury verdict that will compensate victims adequately.
Personal injury law and damages
Most accident cases are filed by personal injury attorneys who attempt to receive compensation as a remedy for their clients. The term for these types of compensation in an injury case is commonly referred to as damages. A lawyer will try to summarize all of the losses that were directly caused by an accident, and then argue that the person or business responsible for the injuries should have to pay for all of these costs.
New Jersey law allows victims in Camden and other cities to receive both economic and non-economic damages after accident cases. Economic damages usually consist of a summary of medical treatment and care, lost income and wages, property damage and repairs, and related quantifiable losses. Non-economic damages are more difficult to estimate, but the victim’s attorney can argue that all factors which contribute to a reduction in their quality of life should be considered.
