You may be thinking of filing a personal injury claim after being hurt in a car accident, a slip-and-fall, or another incident caused by someone else’s carelessness. If so, you probably have lots of questions: What are my chances of getting fair compensation for my medical bills and other losses? Is it better to hire a lawyer, or can I handle it on my own? Is there anything I can do to increase my chances of success? How long will the process take?
Settlements: The Most Common Outcome in Personal Injury Claims in New Jersey
Overall, 70% of our readers with a personal injury claim received a payout (an out-of-court settlement or an award after a trial). And for nearly that many (67%), the compensation came in the form of a settlement. Very few readers (4%) saw their case go to trial, which is typical in personal injury cases. Trials can be time consuming, expensive, and risky for everyone involved. That’s why insurance adjusters—as well as the lawyers helping injured people—are usually motivated to reach a personal injury settlement. Generally, in NJ, the average personal injury case takes 1-2 years. A larger case with severe injuries could take more time…
WE ARE VERY SUCCESSFUL — More than two-thirds of readers received a settlement for their personal injury claims. Those with the most severe injuries receive higher settlements or awards.
