Two Types of Personal Injury Claims

Generally, there are two types of claims in a personal injury case.

The first, and most common type of personal injury cases are those based on negligence, or the failure to act as a reasonably prudent person would have in similar circumstances. A negligent accident like a car crash or slip and fall are examples of situations in which the breach of a duty of care owed to another caused an injury.

For example, all motorists owe others a duty to exercise reasonable care in the use or operation of a motor vehicle. A motorist that is speeding, improperly passing another vehicle or otherwise driving carelessly or unsafely is likely breaching this duty. Under New Jersey law, if that breach results in a car accident results in personal injuries, the victim may be entitled to compensation.

The second type of personal injury case is based on intentional torts. These are voluntary, intentional, and direct harmful actions by one person to another. This includes actions such as assault and battery, sexual offenses, and kidnapping. But other types of intentional injury cases can include the intentional affliction of emotional distress such as bullying.

Proving Your Case in New Jersey: The Burden of Proof

In order to be successful at proving your cause of action, you will need to establish the required elements of the case. In negligence cases, that means establishing that there was 1) a duty of care owed, 2) that duty was breached, and 3) the breach of that duty caused damages (injuries) to another. In an intentional tort case, you will need to establish a direct or indirect physical contact caused without consent or authority of law that was harmful or offensive.

You must prove these elements by the “burden of proof” or “burden of persuasion.” This is the level of convincing that must be demonstrated in each element to prove a case. Most people have heard of the burden of proof “beyond a reasonable doubt” which was popularized by some of the famous Casey Anthony, George Zimmerman, or other high-profile trials. However, that is the burden of proof required in a criminal matter. Personal injury cases are a type of civil matter, even if a defendant violated the vehicle and traffic law. Civil matters have a lower burden of proof. To prevail, the plaintiff must prove the elements of their case “by a preponderance of the evidence.”

This is an important distinction because the “beyond a reasonable doubt” burden requires convincing to a level of 98%-100% confidence. That is very high! But the “preponderance of the evidence” standard means proving that it is more likely than not, or 51% or more. This is much lower. However, it also means that a defendant only needs to prove a defense by 50% because a “tie” goes to the defendant.

Many personal injury cases are, of course, settled consensually. Whether your case is a case that should settle, and whether a proposed settlement is worth taking, are questions you need to consider with the benefit of legal advice. The risks and benefits of going to trial must be carefully considered. This is why all victims of a reckless or intentional act of another need to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer in Middlesex, NJ like ours at Silverberg Law Firm LLC

Can I Recover Compensation Even if the Accident was Partially My Fault?

After an accident, most times an insurance adjuster or defense lawyer will tell you that it was your fault. They will blame you for the accident and for your injuries, even claiming that your injuries were pre-existing. Sometimes they may even convince you that it is true or it could be true.

But it usually is not.

Insurance companies train their insurance adjusters, usually at programs run by defense lawyers, on how to minimize a personal injury claim. This is a common tactic used to undervalue, undermine, and even deny an otherwise valid claim before a victim knows he or she has a claim. Then to look like a “good guy”, the insurance company will offer a nominal settlement amount to settle the case anyway after they told you it was all your fault.

Does not make sense, right?

We do not think so either! Nor does New Jersey law. A victim who has been injured in a personal injury case in New Jersey may still be entitled to compensation for his or her injuries. This is because New Jersey is a modified comparative fault state.

What this means is that a victim will be entitled to recover the award minus his or her proportional amount of fault. For example, if a victim is awarded $100,000 and is found to be 15% comparatively at fault, the court will reduce the award to $85,000.

The “modified” part of comparative fault is that a victim may only recover an award so long as he or she is less culpable than the defendant. Meaning that, if a victim is awarded $100,000 but if found to be 60% at fault, the court may bar recovery of the entire amount.

Insurance companies and defense lawyers know this, which is why they work hard to minimize the amount of an award and fight to maximize your comparative fault. Do not let this happen. Retain an experienced personal injury lawyer in Middlesex, NJ to ensure that your rights to compensation are well-protected under New Jersey law.
