Car Accidents and Compensation
Compensation in car accidents is not all about money. However, money is essential after any severe car accident to pay for medical bills, auto repairs, and lost wages. Without compensation, some victims face financial ruin after an accident.
There are two types of compensation available after a car accident, economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are expenses that are readily calculable, such as:
- Hospital bills;
- Prescription drugs;
- Lost income;
- Property damage;
- Occupational therapy; and
- Psychological counseling.
Non-economic damages are losses without identifiable monetary value, including:
- Pain and suffering;
- Mental and emotional trauma;
- Loss of consortium; and
- Loss of companionship.
Statute of Limitations To File a Claim
To qualify for compensation in a New Jersey car accident claim, a victim must file a lawsuit within two years of the date of injury. This is known as the statute of limitations. There are limited exceptions to this rule, but they apply on a case-by-case basis.
For more information about specific New Jersey statutes of limitations or compensation available to car accident victims, call an experienced Guttenberg car accident attorney.
Proving Liability in a Car Accident
Before a victim can receive compensation in a car accident claim, they must prove the other driver was negligent. Proving negligence requires showing four elements:
- The at-fault driver owed the victim a duty of care;
- The at-fault driver breached their duty of care;
- That breach caused the victim’s injuries; and
- The victim suffered actual damages as a direct result of the at-fault driver’s actions or inactions.
Negligent driving may include, but is not limited to, any of the following:
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol;
- Failing to follow traffic laws;
- Distracted driving;
- Aggressive driving; and
- Drowsy driving.
Proving liability for a car accident is the most challenging part of any car accident claim. An experienced car accident attorney like ours at the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Hasson, P.C. will listen to your case’s facts and provide an honest opinion about the viability of your claim.
