Personal Injury General Overview
If you or a family member have suffered a serious injury due to the negligence of someone else, you deserve to be compensated for your losses – especially for injuries that significantly affect your ability to earn a living and diminish your overall quality of life.
Brach Eichler’s Personal Injury Practice Group focuses on injury recovery through settlement negotiations, administrative proceedings and litigation. Our attorneys have received five, six and seven figure verdicts in Bergen, Hudson, Morris, Passaic, Middlesex and Union Counties.
Time is critically important when filing a personal injury lawsuit. In New Jersey, typically two years from the date of an accident are open for action before you forfeit your right to sue. There are however expectations to this restriction, such as if you have a claim against a public entity where you are required to give written notice within 90 days of the accident.
In addition to meeting the strict deadlines imposed by New Jersey laws, you benefit from prompt and thorough investigation of your accident. Memories fade over time, and evidence disappears. Insurance companies and defendants are given an advantage if you delay filing your claim.
