Being injured in an accident can be life-altering. Many victims are unable to work for an extended period of time, experience ongoing pain and suffering, and face mounting medical bills while trying to recover. When an injury is a result of another party’s negligent, reckless or willful conduct, you are legally entitled to receive significant financial compensation.

How is a personal injury lawsuit resolved?
Many personal injury claims in New Jersey do not require a jury trial. Instead, they are often resolved through complicated negotiations with an insurance company. There are a number of factors that insurers consider when resolving these claims, aside from the injuries involved. Importantly, the insurance carriers must respect the experience and talents of your attorneys in order to maximize your financial recovery.
At Levin and Malkin, with over 40 years handling personal injury accidents, our attorneys have the respect of all the major insurance companies. Our decades of experience have given us keen insights into the tactics insurance companies use. While we work to make sure your claim is resolved expediently, we know how to devise strategies that will lead to the best possible outcome for you. Our attorneys utilize their negotiating skills to ensure that you receive the highest value for your case. If a voluntary settlement is not deemed adequate, our winning team of tenacious litigators will aggressively fight for you in court.
How much is my personal injury claim worth?
Accident injury victims are entitled to receive compensation for their losses, which are called “legal damages.” These damages are generally categorized as “non-economic damages,” such as pain and suffering, and all intangible bad things that result from an accident, such as permanent or temporary disability, and loss of enjoyment of life.
Additionally, victims are entitled to receive “economic damages,” which compensate for readily calculable dollar losses, such as unpaid medical bills, property damage, loss of income, loss of school tuition or financial opportunity, etc.
Another class of damages is called “punitive,” designed to punish someone whose conduct was beyond negligent, and involved malice or willful, wanton, and reckless disregard for the safety of others. Such an award is intended to send a message to others to prevent future similar conduct.
