Defining Personal Injury

Personal injury refers to a legal term encompassing any harm caused to an individual’s body, mind, or emotions. It does not cover material property damage. Personal injury can arise from various situations like accidents, slips and falls, or medical malpractices, and may result in temporary or permanent impairment or even death. The responsible party can be held liable for negligence, warranting compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of earnings, emotional distress, and other damages incurred by the victim.

At Di Lauri & Hewitt Law Group, we understand the physical, emotional, and financial toll that personal injuries can have on individuals and their families. Our experienced team of attorneys works diligently to provide personalized legal representation tailored to each client’s unique needs and circumstances. We handle every aspect of a personal injury case with utmost care and professionalism, from gathering evidence to negotiating settlements

Robert DiLauri is the utmost professional. Due to my work schedule, I sent him an email on the weekend, and he replied immediately. I'm in the process of hiring a GC for a major home improvement project and the contract i was given was a bit one sided. Robert redlined the contract to achieve the proper consumer protections for me and my family. Knowledgeable and responsive lawyers are hard to find for jobs such as this, but Robert treated me and my task with great respect and professionalism and followed up with a phone call to make sure I was satisfied. I would recommend Robert and his firm to others seeking advice and legal representation.

Grasping the Financial Impact of Personal Injury

The financial repercussions of personal injury can be extensive and substantial, determined by the severity of the injury, the recovery period, and the indirect costs related to the incident. Direct costs encompass medical expenses like surgeries, hospital stays, medication, rehabilitation, and necessary medical equipment. Indirect costs such as lost income during recovery or due to long-term disability, and alterations to living conditions due to severe injuries can also enhance the financial strain. Furthermore, the emotional costs, while intangible, can be significant. As your personal injury lawyers, we take all these factors into account to ensure you receive fair compensation that covers the true cost of your injury.

Unpacking Different Types of Compensation in Injury Claims

Injury claims span numerous categories, each specifically designed to cater to certain types of incidents or injuries. These categories encompass personal injury, motor vehicle accidents – whether they occur in East Hanover or anywhere within New Jersey’s jurisdiction, and medical negligence among others. Each of these categories provides distinctive compensations that victims can pursue. In this piece, we delve into the diverse compensations obtainable in injury claims:

Economic Damages — This forms the bedrock of compensatory damages, covering measurable financial losses directly linked to the accident. The ultimate goal of economic damages is to restore the victim’s fiscal position to the state it was before the accident took place. This category covers costs such as:

    • Medical expenses: This includes hospital charges, medication prices, and costs associated with rehabilitation treatments.
    • Income loss: This pertains to the wages lost due to the victim’s inability to work after the accident.
    • Property damage: This covers the cost of repair or replacement needed as a result of the accident.

Non-Economic Damages — This category addresses losses that are not easily quantified, such as the effects of physical pain, emotional distress, and loss of companionship. The valuation of non-economic damages is based on the specific circumstances of each case. Some examples are:

    • Physical pain and emotional distress: This refers to the physical and emotional consequences of the injuries incurred.
    • Psychological trauma: This pertains to the psychological effects of the accident.
    • Loss of companionship or consortium: This relates to the relational loss experienced due to injuries sustained by a family member.

Punitive Damages — This category is meant to penalize the guilty party for their negligent or deliberate misconduct. It’s worth mentioning that punitive damages are less frequent than economic and non-economic damages. They are usually awarded in cases characterized by especially egregious behavior by the defendant.

Nominal Damages — This category is granted when the victim hasn’t suffered significant financial damage but has been wronged. Nominal damages act as a symbol, representing the victim’s legal entitlement to compensation.

There are several modes of compensation payment. The most common method is the one-time lump-sum payment, where the entire compensation is paid all at once. On the other hand, structured settlements and annuities allow for compensation pay-outs over a period of time, enabling the victim to receive regular payments.
