- Car accidents
- Commercial truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- On-the-job and workplace accidents
- Defective product accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Slip and fall or trip and fall accidents
These are only a few examples of the accidents that New Jersey residents often sustain. If you or someone you love has been injured because of someone else's negligence, reach out to a personal injury lawyer in New Jersey.
Morgan & Morgan boasts a team of legal experts that will fight effectively for you. You should not bear the burdens of someone else’s carelessness on your own.
What Should You Expect From a Personal Injury Lawyer in New Jersey?
Even those who know that they have a strong personal injury claim may not be aware of the legal services that an attorney can provide. Most accident and injury claims involve many complex legal processes.
In most cases, securing financial recovery for an accident or injury requires years of legal training and specialized knowledge. Victims of accidents should not have to manage the logistical requirements of the claims process all on their own.
Instead, injured people should be able to focus on their own health and recovery. When you hire a personal injury lawyer in New Jersey, they will manage the following elements of your claim:
- Gathering relevant evidence
- Speaking with eyewitnesses
- Consulting with experts and specialists, if necessary
- Drafting and filing required paperwork
- Negotiating with any opposing parties
- Securing relevant medical records
- Preparing an injury lawsuit, if needed
At Morgan & Morgan, our team has decades of experience in handling personal injury cases. We know how to successfully negotiate with tightfisted and uncooperative insurance providers.
In many cases, insurance adjusters will try hard to devalue and undermine the claims of victims. Adjusters are trained to negotiate for the lowest possible payment on each claim.
Our skilled legal experts are master negotiators. We know the tactics and strategies that stubborn adjusters rely on and we know how to effectively counter them.
Make sure to secure the services of a trustworthy accident lawyer before you speak with an insurance company representative. You should never discuss your accident case without the guidance of a legal professional.
Categories of Damages in Personal Injury Cases
Payments that are made to the victim to compensate for their losses are known as “damages.” Damages are not intended to make injury victims rich. They are not intended to allow victims to profit from their accidents.
Instead, financial compensation in a personal injury case is meant to make the victim financially whole.
There are two primary categories of damages in most accident and injury cases. These are known as “economic” and “non-economic” damages.
This category of compensation is paid to the victim to make up for their direct financial losses. Accident victims usually face negative consequences beyond the physical pain from their injuries.
In most cases, victims face many types of financial pressure because of their accidents. Any type of direct monetary cost can be recovered through economic damages.
Some of the most common examples of economic damages in accident cases include payments for:
- Medical bills and expenses
- Expected future medical costs
- Damaged or destroyed property
- Lost income from missed days at work
- A loss of long-term earning capacity
These are only a few examples of the types of monetary losses that injury victims confront.
The skilled attorneys at Morgan & Morgan will carefully analyze the facts of your accident case to determine the full spectrum of economic damages that you may be owed.
Not every type of negative consequence from an accident or injury results in a specific monetary loss. In fact, some of the most difficult and challenging outcomes do not involve the victim's financial life at all.
For instance, suppose that you suffered from a severe neck injury in a car crash. You might be unable to take walks with your spouse without feeling pain. Your injury may prevent you from engaging in the hobbies and activities that you used to love.
How much are these types of losses worth? Calculating the value of non-economic damages in accident and injury cases is complex.
It is important to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer in New Jersey to determine the amount of non-economic damages you can claim.
Typical examples of non-economic damages include payments for:
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional distress, like stress, anxiety, or depression
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Disfigurement or disability
- Loss of ability to enjoy life
- And more
Some accidents result in fatal injuries for the victim. If you have lost a loved one in an accident caused by another party, do not hesitate. A surviving family has the right to pursue financial compensation on behalf of the decedent. Skilled injury attorneys can build a powerful wrongful death case for you.
No matter what the circumstances of your accident or injury may be, you deserve justice. The accomplished New Jersey attorneys at Morgan & Morgan will pursue every relevant type of damages in your accident case.
Can I Afford a Personal Injury Attorney?
Trustworthy personal injury lawyers are paid through “contingency fees.” Most transactions require the paying party to provide upfront funds. This is not the case in personal injury law.
A reputable attorney will explain their payment structure during your initial consultation. With a contingency fee payment structure, the attorney and the client agree to designate a certain percentage of the recovery from the case. After the lawyer has won or settled the case, that percentage is allocated to cover the cost of legal services.
The claimant does not owe a single dime unless their attorney secures compensation for them. You should never hire a lawyer or firm that requires payment for legal fees before settling your case.
At Morgan & Morgan, we understand the immense financial pressures that most accident victims confront. Because of this, we guarantee that our clients pay nothing unless we successfully win or settle their cases.
Our compassionate lawyers believe that everyone deserves qualified legal representation, regardless of their financial situation.

How Can I Know if a Lawyer or Firm Is Right for Me?
First, make sure to schedule a no-cost legal consultation with any firm that you are considering. Most personal injury firms will provide you with a free no-risk case evaluation.
This initial meeting is an excellent time to ask questions about your claim. The attorney should be willing to clear up any confusion and carefully examine the facts of your case.
Pay close attention to the lawyer’s answers and responses. If you feel uncertain of the attorney’s competence or honesty, keep looking.
You should never hire a legal professional who makes you feel uncomfortable. The best attorney-client relationships are based on trust, compassion, and honest communication.
Is It Important to Hire a Lawyer With Trial Experience?
Yes! It is vital to hire an attorney with plenty of experience in the courtroom.
It is worth noting that most accident and injury claims do not proceed to the litigation phase. Instead, most cases settle before going to court.
Still, some claims do require a trial. If you are dealing with a particularly uncooperative insurance provider or opposing party, you may need to file a lawsuit.
It is crucial to know that your attorney can pursue your case as far as is necessary. Hiring a trial-ready legal professional communicates to the other party that you are serious.
At Morgan & Morgan, we have more than 700 attorneys with trial experience nationwide. You should never have to worry that your lawyer will accept an inadequate deal to avoid the prospect of a trial.
