Each year in Mercer County, New Jersey, multiple types of accidents happen, and some of them are caused by the negligent or wrongful conduct of other people or entities.

The injury attorneys at Raynes & Lawn have decades of experience helping negligence victims recover the compensation they deserve and have recovered tens of billions of dollars for our clients.
Personal injury claims involve an area of civil law called tort law. These are civil wrongs for which the injured victim can file a claim against the party who caused their injuries. Personal injury cases can involve both negligent and intentional acts, but the vast majority involve negligence causes of action. Pennsylvania law allows tort victims to file lawsuits against the responsible parties to recover compensation for the losses they have suffered. These types of lawsuits can be filed even in situations in which criminal prosecutors have filed criminal actions against the defendants. Since civil lawsuits have a lower required burden of proof, it is sometimes possible to hold a defendant liable in a negligence lawsuit even when they have been found not guilty in a related criminal matter.
