After you have been in a car or truck accident in Jersey City or elsewhere, your main concern should be your recovery, your health. Your recovery can be a long time, it can be short, it maybe a full recovery mentally, it may not, the list of issues and concerns are endless after an accident. With that in mind, you may miss work, your quality of life may deteriorate and you should be compensated for that if it was not your fault. The next question becomes, how much is my case or claim worth? How do I know if I have a case worth pursuing? This is again another question not so easy to answer. It depends on the nature of the injuries, the amount of coverage the driver had, which County the case is in are all factors, among others that are considered. Why is the County a factor? Well the county is a factor because the county is where the potential jury is pooled from. An affluent area may be less inclined to award damages in a “simple” car accident case where an urban area may be more inclined to award a higher amount. For example, A Newark jury in Essex County may award a higher amount than the less urban area of Somerville-Somerset County may award. You have two years from the date of accident to file a law suit in a New Jersey Court. If the accident involves the government, you may only have 90 days. That time will come faster than you believe and must be filed. However, you should think about whether filing is actually worth it because depending on the insurance coverage, you may not be eligible for compensatory damages if you do not have what is considered permanent damages.
