Accidents happen, sometimes to good people that are innocent of any apparent wrongdoing. Whether work related, on the job or being involved in a slip and fall accident on the street people are prone to accidents that are not their fault. On the Eastern seaboard in South Jersey, injury lawyers work to claim damages for their clients that have been involved in an accident that was not their fault. In many cases negligence is to blame when a person is injured through no fault of their own. Negligent people that are not conscious of their actions are held responsible for many accidents that take place on their property or through an unsafe working environment.
Personal injury lawyers working for the innocent victims of negligent accidents are out to claim recompense for damages from the pain and suffering of their clients. Many innocent people are injured each year and have to cover the medical expenses of their injuries as well as the time lost at work because of the nature of their injury. Along with these expenses lawyers also seek damages for the mental anguish that was caused to the injured person as a result of the stress that they suffer in being incapacitated or hospitalized and not knowing how they are going to restore their life to a state of normalcy.
The legal system of the United States is set up to protect the rights of all people and hand down judgments of fair justice to people that have been negligent or committed a criminal act. Through proper representation by an accredited attorney people that been injured through no fault of their own can have their day in court and claim damages from the responsible parties for their pain and suffering. In South Jersey injury lawyers are hard at work preparing cases for their clients that are against the responsible people that have done harm to another because they were in some way careless. Homeowners, business owners, corporations and local governments are all potential targets of injury lawyers that are seeking out justice for their clients.
In cases where personal injury results in a death the damages claimed by family members can skyrocket into the millions as was the case a few years ago when a pedestrian was struck by a city bus. Although the man did not die, he was seriously injured and as a result won a judgment against the city totaling eighteen million dollars for negligence on the part of the bus driver. The innocent victim was hospitalized for a period of six months and faced mounting medical expenses as well as having to rebuild his life after the accident. His injury lawyer sued the city and won the case claiming justice for the man that had suffered so much loss.
