Any type of accident has the potential to cause severe personal injury. Unfortunately, in some cases, the harm can be life changing and call for extensive medical and rehabilitative services. Sadly, another party’s actions or mistakes can also result in the unexpected demise of a loved one. In personal injury law, this type of accidental loss is known as a wrongful death.
At the Ocean County Law Offices of DiFrancia & Price P.C., we have experience handling a number of different types of accident cases, also known as personal injury matters. Personal injury is broadly defined as physical and/or emotional harm that comes as a consequence of someone’s negligence or carelessness. Many insurance companies use the words “bodily injury” in handling personal injury claims.
Workers’ compensation cases are also considered a part of personal injury law. Notwithstanding, an individual who is injured at work does not have to prove fault. Most work-related accidents are considered compensable and provide specified benefits.
The same is not true with other types of personal injury matters. In order to receive monetary damages for a motor vehicle or slip and fall accident, you must first prove liability. Additionally, you must demonstrate evidence of damages that are related to your injuries.
