Suffering a catastrophic injury can often be difficult because the injuries are frequently severe, and have a long-term impact on the victim’s overall health and quality of life. Those same difficulties also can also create a strain on the victim’s family. As New Jersey catastrophic injury lawyers with decades of accident and personal injury trial experience, we have witnessed and participated in the outcomes of these events.
Specialists in New Jersey Catastrophic Injury Law
Those who have suffered catastrophic injuries in New Jersey are not without protection. Under New Jersey personal injury law, victims of catastrophic injuries may recover compensation from the wrongdoer who caused their injuries. That compensation can include items such as medical care and rehabilitation, lost wages, as well as payment for the pain and suffering that may have resulted from the injury.
Many New Jersey lawyers hold themselves out as experts in the representation of catastrophically injured people, but few truly have the experience and resources necessary to effectively represent those victims.
The personal injury lawyers at McLaughlin & Lauricella have a history of successfully prosecuting catastrophic injury cases in New Jersey.
Victims of a New Jersey catastrophic injury generally have two years after they knew, or should reasonably have known, that they have suffered an injury to file a lawsuit in a New Jersey Court. In the event that a minor is injured, the minor has until age 20 to file a lawsuit. In the tragic event that a patient dies, whether the patient is an adult or a minor, any lawsuit must be filed within two years of the date of death.
