Fatal Injuries

Kearny New Jersey Injury Law Firm Aggressively Represents Victims of Fatal Accidents

Experienced team advocates for victims and families

Truck accidents. Car accidents. Pedestrians struck while crossing a street. Headlines of fatal accidents make the news on a regular basis. Even a slip and fall accident can result in death. While no amount of money can replace the loss of human life, monetary compensation can make a difference in the surviving family’s ability to move forward after such a loss. The New Jersey personal injury law firm Brady, Brady & Reilly, LLC is experienced in handling fatal accident cases, aggressively representing victims and families.

Proving fault in a personal injury case

Proving fault is at the heart of personal injury law. A fatal accident must be the result of another individual or entity’s negligence. And while the legal elements of negligence are fairly straightforward, proving these elements is more difficult. Investigation of the details and circumstances surrounding the claim is key to establishing liability. These investigations typically include interviewing involved parties, collecting physical evidence, and consulting — and often hiring — experts. Facts and evidence are used to support each claim, including police reports, witness statements, medical records, and any related documents.

Time limits for filing a personal injury claim in New Jersey

Every state has a statute of limitations – a limit on the length of time an individual has to file a lawsuit in the civil court system after suffering some type of harm. In New Jersey, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is two years from the date of injury. It is important to know and understand this law. If an individual fails to file a lawsuit within that two-year period, the New Jersey courts will most likely refuse to hear the case at any time in the future. As such, any right to compensation for damages will be lost. So if a loved one has suffered a fatal accident, don’t wait to consult with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney at Brady, Brady & Reilly, LLC regarding your case.
