How a Cherry Hill Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help Deal With Insurance Companies

Insurance companies are not on your side, despite their glossy, comforting ads. They exist to make profits, and that means minimizing payouts on claims. It’s important to speak to a personal injury attorney for a Cherry Hill injury claim before dealing with insurance companies to avoid falling into these common pitfalls:

  • Some insurance adjusters call injury victims very soon after their injury with a low settlement offer in exchange for a signature signing away the right to file a lawsuit. Often they make this offer quickly before you know the true extent of your damages
  • An insurance representative may call you on a recorded line and use your innocent remarks out of context against you later. Its important to understand your rights under HIPAA
  • Insurance adjusters may scour your medical history to look for pre-existing conditions they can claim are the true cause of your pain and other symptoms after asking for medical authorization to review your injury
  • Insurance representatives may follow your social media accounts to look for photos of you that “prove” you’re not as injured as you claim, even if you were smiling through your pain at your child’s soccer game

By hiring an attorney for a Cherry Hill personal injury claim, you can protect yourself against these common tactics by directing all communications with insurance representatives to your lawyer.

Common Cherry Hill Personal Injury Case Types

The National Safety Council (NSC) reported the top preventable causes of injuries and fatalities for 2021, which include circumstances involving poisoning, motor vehicles, and falls.

Unsurprisingly, some of the most common personal injury cases brought against negligent third parties are one of these case types.

Throughout our decades of experience working in Cherry Hill personal injury cases, here are some of the most common situations that can trigger legal action:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents, including car accidents and those involving commercial vehicles and large trucks
  • Pedestrian and Bicyclist Accidents
  • Premises Liability, including dog bites, slip and falls, and negligent security
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Workers’ Compensation
  • Wrongful Death

Common Injuries In Cherry Hill Personal Injury Cases

For a plaintiff to bring a case against a negligent third party in New Jersey, they typically have to experience a mild to severe physical injury.

Examples of physical injuries that could arise from these situations include:

  • Brain Injuries and Concussion
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Catastrophic Injuries
  • Burns
  • Broken or Fractured Bones
  • Crushed or Amputated Digits or Limbs
  • Internal Bleeding
  • Soft Tissue Damage
  • Organ Failure

While many of these injuries are life-altering and result in permanent damage or disability, even a relatively minor injury can negatively and significantly affect your life.

What to Do After Suffering a Preventable Cherry Hill Injury

Injuries are sudden and traumatic. If you’re too seriously hurt to risk moving, remain in place until help arrives. However, if you can use your phone safely—or ask a companion to use it for you—you can take steps to protect yourself both physically and financially. If an injury was preventable and caused by someone else’s negligence, do the following:

  • Call 911 to request an ambulance. Ask for police if the injury resulted from a traffic accident or a criminal act of violence
  • Take photos of any visible signs of injury
  • Take photos of anything that contributed to the injury, like a broken step, or the vehicles in an accident
  • Add the contact information of anyone involved and eyewitnesses
  • Ask for an accident report from police or an incident report from a business

After help arrives, accept emergency transport to a hospital or make arrangements to go to an E.R. Tell the doctor about all of your symptoms and request a detailed medical report with your prognosis and your doctor’s instructions for treatment. Be sure to follow all instructions, make every appointment, and fill all of your prescriptions. Keep copies of all medical expenses.

Finally, call a personal injury attorney to set up a free case consultation. The lawyers at the Cherry Hill law office of Cuneo & Leonetti are ready to defend your rights and advocate for your best interests.

Liability in Cherry Hill Personal Injury Claims

Before an injury victim can claim compensation for their damages, an attorney must investigate the circumstances of the injury to prove liability. This requires identifying the party at fault for the injury and proving negligence by showing that the at-fault party acted in a way that another, reasonable person would not have in the same circumstances. Proving the legal points of liability requires documenting evidence demonstrating the following:

  • The party at fault owed a duty of reasonable care to prevent injury to others, such as a driver’s duty to avoid distraction or a business owner’s duty to address safety hazards on their property
  • They breached their duty of care by acting negligently, recklessly, or with intentional wrongdoing
  • Their negligent breach of duty directly caused injury
  • The injury victim suffered significant economic and non-economic damages due to the injury

Once your attorney has documented evidence proving the above, they can draft a compelling demand letter for compensation.

Common Types of Compensation Recovered in Cherry Hill Personal Injury Claims

Injuries are more than just painful, disruptive, and sometimes life-altering—They’re also expensive, causing financial hardships for families. The economic consequences and non-economic consequences of a serious injury are “damages” in the eyes of the court. A personal injury claim is the civil court’s remedy for damages. A successful personal injury claim can help relieve the financial burdens caused by an injury by bringing victims compensation for damages including:

  • Medical expenses and related costs
  • Future medical expenses for further treatment related to the injury
  • Lost wages and future income loss
  • Diminished earning capacity if the injury resulted in disability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Other non-economic damages that apply, like disfigurement, limb loss, and emotional trauma

Financial compensation for economic damages reimburses injury victims for the expenses caused by the injury. While monetary compensation doesn’t erase pain or other non-economic damages, it’s the only way the court can redress those intangible damages. 

Only if the insurance company fails to offer an ample settlement does the case become a lawsuit to gain compensation through a jury award. Lawsuits must be filed within the state’s statute of limitations.

Statute Of Limitations In Cherry Hill Personal Injury Cases

Under New Jersey Revised Statutes 2A:14-2 (2022), individuals seeking to file an action for injury caused by a wrongful act generally have two years from the date the incident occurred to do so.

A key exception from the standard statute of limitations in New Jersey is if the situation involves a minor who experienced a medical malpractice-related injury at birth. If that’s the case, the parents or guardians generally have until the child’s 13th birthday to commence legal action on behalf of their child.

When Is It Best To File A Personal Injury Lawsuit In New Jersey?

We typically recommend individuals not wait to file a case against the perpetrator of the negligent action.

If you wait too long, you could miss the filing deadline, barring you from filing a lawsuit.  Additionally, the longer you wait, the more difficult it can be to gather vital evidence to build a strong case.  Ultimately, if you believe you may have a personal injury case, seek medical attention immediately and speak to a personal injury lawyer as soon as you are able to.

How To Get Started With A Personal Injury Lawyer In Cherry Hill?

How To Get Started With A Personal Injury Lawyer In Cherry Hill?

Starting your path toward justice and maximum compensation with a personal injury lawyer involves following these important steps.

Step 1: Start With A No-Obligation Personal Injury Case Review

Most personal injury lawyers in New Jersey will start prospective clients with a free, no-obligation personal injury case review. This case review allows the injured party to talk to a real legal expert with the firm to discuss their options.

In this case review, you’ll have the option to discuss the finer details of your case with your attorney and get a feel for their temperament and way of working. Additionally, it’s helpful to understand how personal injury lawyers receive payment as you begin this process.

Many personal injury lawyers, such as our team at Cuneo & Leonetti, offer services on a contingency fee basis. This means that a plaintiff in a personal injury case will only pay their attorney or the law firm representing them if they win their case. This contrasts with the hourly fee model, which means you will pay your attorney and legal team to work on your case as you go.

It’s important to discuss fee arrangements up front and understand how the law firm charges for their services. If you’re considering hiring a personal injury lawyer and prefer hourly billing, inquire about this during your initial consultation to determine if it’s a viable option for your case.

Step 2: Help Your Legal Team Collect Evidence

If a firm decides to take your case, their team will begin to investigate the ins and outs of your situation. You should aim to be as helpful as possible during this time, providing documentation such as:

  • Physical Evidence (Clothes, Damaged Vehicle or Property)
  • Pictures or Video
  • Surveillance Footage
  • Medical Records
  • Witness Testimony
  • Police Reports
  • Insurance Documents
  • Medical Bills

Step 3: Begin Negotiations and Filing

Your attorney will next compose a demand letter, including case specifics like injuries, medical costs, lost wages, and damages, to initiate a negotiation. This is done with the responsible third-party directly or their insurer.

If negotiations do not result in a satisfactory settlement, your attorney may advise filing a lawsuit. This involves preparing legal documents, filing a complaint, and serving it to the defendant. Then the case enters the litigation phase. From this step, a case may go to a mediation session for a last-chance settlement agreement or to trial.

How Much Do Cherry Hill Personal Injury Claims Cost?

Like most experienced personal injury lawyers, the Cherry Hill injury attorneys at Cuneo & Leonetti require no upfront fees. Instead, we work for our clients on a contingency fee basis, meaning we only get paid when you do. After your free case consultation, we’ll work on negotiating your claim with the insurance company of the at-fault party, and go to court if needed to secure your compensation.

New Jersey limits personal injury attorneys who work on contingency fees to no more than 33.33% of the total amount of compensation a client receives in their claim. Most claims are settled out of court through evidence-based negotiations with the insurance company. An attorney from Cuneo & Leonetti will investigate all aspects of your injury to prove liability and craft a compelling case for a settlement. We’ll also carefully calculate your damages to maximize the amount you recover. Only in the relatively minor chance that the insurance company denies the claim or seriously undervalues it will the case proceed to a lawsuit. Court litigation takes longer than a settlement, but the amount of compensation a jury awards is often greater than what you’d receive through a settlement.
