Residents of Ocean County, New Jersey are sometimes injured in a variety of different types of accidents. While some of these accidents happen through no one’s fault, others are caused by the negligent, reckless, or intentional actions of others. When someone is seriously injured because of the wrongful actions of someone else, the victim has a right to file a claim for damages against the responsible party. The experienced team of attorneys at Raynes & Lawn is focused on helping the victims of negligence recover full compensation for their losses and strongly believes that negligent parties should be held fully accountable when they cause harm to others.
Personal injury law encompasses a broad variety of cases. These types of legal claims are civil actions that can be filed against the parties whose negligent or unreasonable actions resulted in injuries to others. New Jersey law provides the rights of people who have been injured by others to file claims against them so that they can recover monetary compensation for their economic and non-economic losses. Injury claims can also be filed against the perpetrators of intentional acts and might be filed at the same time as criminal cases for the same incidents. Since they are civil lawsuits, personal injury claims have a lower burden of proof and might allow the victims to hold the defendants accountable even if their criminal prosecutions are unsuccessful.
