In some cases in New Jersey, people are injured when they are not paying attention and cause their own accidents. However, others are injured in accidents caused by the negligence of others.

New Jersey personal injury cases encompass a broad variety of different incidents. These types of cases all share a commonality of negligent or wrongful conduct on the part of one party that causes injury and harm to another. When someone sustains serious injuries or is killed because of the negligent, reckless, or intentional actions of someone else, the victim or the family members of a person who is killed as a result can pursue compensation through a personal injury claim. Personal injury cases proceed in civil court and can be filed simultaneously with any criminal court action that might also be filed against a defendant. Since the burden of proof is lower in personal injury cases than in criminal prosecutions, it is sometimes possible to hold a defendant accountable through a personal injury claim even when he or she has been found not guilty in a criminal case. The attorneys at Raynes & Lawn are prepared to fight for your rights when you have been injured because of the actions of others.
