RECOVERING COMPENSATION FOR ASSAULT

Many people are unsure of their legal rights when it comes to holding an assaulter liable for damages, both physical and economic, in civil court. The bottom line is that the victim of a deliberate assault has the same rights as the victim of negligence, you can file a Morris County civil lawsuit and recover compensation for medical expenses, lost income and future income, and your pain and suffering. However, there are some important differences between personal injury lawsuits and civil lawsuits for assaults. 

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PERSONAL INJURY AND WORKERS' COMPENSATION CLAIMS

At The Morristown Law Office of Smith & Doran, we have helped many clients to pursue both personal injury claims and workers' compensation claims. While these claims do share some similarities (i.e. you were injured), personal injury claims are pursued under very different circumstances than workers' compensation claims, and involve very different levels of compensation. Let's take a closer look. 

HOW THE INSURANCE COMPANY WILL ANSWER YOUR PERSONAL INJURY COMPLAINT

If you are pursuing a personal injury claim, whether it be from a car accident, truck accident, construction accident, a workplace injury, a slip and fall, or any other type of accident which resulted from another party's reckless or negligent actions, one of the first steps you and your Morris County personal injury attorney will perform is to file the initial personal injury complaint.

DRUNK TRUCK DRIVERS: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Drunk driving is dangerous, both to the intoxicated driver and to other drivers and pedestrians. Consuming alcohol slows down reaction times and reduces the control you have over your body. New Jersey law prohibits automobile drivers from driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08% or higher, and the consequences of breaking this law are harsh, including steep fines, possible jail time, and suspension of license.
