Understanding The Law Is Critical To Advancing Your Personal Injury Case

Surviving serious harm is challenging enough, but in order to receive court-ordered compensation you also have to prove that your personal injury meets a state-defined level of severity and qualifies as permanent. Unfortunately, this can place even more strain on victims who already face trying circumstances.

At Rone & Kowalski, LLC, our personal injury attorneys have spent more than 25 years working to help injured people improve their lives. By advocating on behalf of those who may not understand how the law works, we ensure that victims in Milmay and the rest of South Jersey are afforded a better chance at recovery. We don't believe that your future should be defined by the temporary adversity you now face, and we're proud to help our community grow stronger.

Permanent Injuries Defined

When you get hurt in an event like an auto collision, your circumstances can take a sharp turn. Although it's common for people to file lawsuits, judges in New Jersey want to verify that the harm you sustained is actually life-changing. It may be quite apparent to you that your life won't be the same, but you must provide a preponderance of evidence to prove that you suffered a permanent injury that:

  • Might cause or has caused death, disfigurement, significant scarring, dismemberment or a displaced fracture
  • Led to or will lead to the loss of a fetus
  • Constitutes a permanent injury as determined by a medical professional

As an injury victim, having to go through the steps of proving that your case meets these standards may seem inconvenient, or even inconsiderate. Our goal as compassionate lawyers is to make the process as pain-free as possible. We've helped countless New Jersey families take steps toward recovery, and we look forward to talking to you about taking those same steps.

The Importance Of Establishing Your Claim

When you appear before a judge, your ability to gain their sympathy may not be enough. Court officials are supposed to maintain impartial viewpoints and make fair decisions so it's critical to structure your argument in a fashion that satisfies the requirements for obtaining damages. It's also worth noting that courts can only accept proof from verified medical professionals.
