Plainfield, NJ Personal Injury Lawyers
New Jersey Personal Injury Lawyers Put Experience to Work for Injured Clients in Plainfield and Throughout Union County
Sustaining any type of injury can cause serious setbacks to the injured party, but when you have sustained an injury because someone else was careless or negligent, you have a legal right to financial compensation from the responsible person or organization. Even if the accident that caused your injuries was just that—an accident—when a third party fails to exercise the caution necessary to keep others safe, they are financially responsible for that failure. While the legal right to compensation might seem simple on its face, in reality pursuing a claim for compensation in a personal injury case can be complicated by negligent parties who disclaim responsibility, insurance companies that offer unfair settlements and a myriad of other factors specific to your particular case.
Our skilled personal injury lawyers have been successfully helping clients recover the compensation that they need in Plainfield and Union County since the 1970s, and we have helped thousands of clients move forward with their lives after suffering a personal injury. Contact us today to see how we can help you navigate the legal system and maximize the amount of financial compensation to which you may be entitled to recover from a careless third party.

Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Cases in Plainfield, NJ
FAQ: What type of compensation can I recover in a personal injury lawsuit?
Our lawyers will conduct a detailed evaluation of your injuries, in addition to the circumstances giving rise to those injuries, to maximize your compensation award, which may include: medical expense reimbursements, payments for future medical expenses and rehabilitative care, lost wages, lost future earning potential, loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering and more.
FAQ: I understand that I can recover compensation for my pain and suffering in a personal injury lawsuit, but what does this really mean?
It is, of course, impossible to accurately price the pain and suffering that you experience when you suffer an injury in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence. The actual pain of the injury, the suffering caused by the treatment and recovery, the stress of the incident and recovery as a whole and the overall impact on your life will all be taken into account in determining the “value” of your pain and suffering for legal purposes. For example, if the accident causes a broken leg, you’re in a cast for a few months, and once the cast is removed you are healed, your pain and suffering damages will be less “valuable” than in a case where your injuries cause permanent, ongoing need for painful treatments—such as in a case involving severe burns.
