What Damages are Recoverable in a New Jersey Personal Injury Case?
In a New Jersey Personal Injury case, we’re often asked from the onset what damages are recoverable. Your out-of-pocket expenses, which includes your medical expenses and your lost income of above and beyond that are normally payable by you own insurance coverage, are recoverable from the other party who caused the accident. But beyond that, the most significant aspect to damages is Permanent Injury. This is what you’re going to have to live with for the rest of your life, past pain and suffering, present pain and suffering, and future pain and suffering. Your spouse is entitled to recover for any loss of what we call Consortium – the services and society of your husband or wife. That can extend to anything from doing yard work to the disposition of your spouse as result of the injury sustained at an accident. Those are primarily damages that are recoverable.
