In the great state of New Jersey, a personal injury can be defined as any injury you sustained as a result of the medical malpractice of a single doctor or hospital-wide, accidents involving automobiles or motorbikes, elder abuse which most of the time takes place in a nursing home, any slip and falls due to the negligence of company or hospital employees, and also injuries sustained from a faulty product.
It is vital that if you have experienced an injury due to some of the factors listed above that you get into contact with legal representation as quickly as possible. As these cases all have a statute of limitations that may pass if you take too long to file your case, do not allow the statute of limitations to take away the compensation you need and are owed.
There are several factors that must be proven to successfully litigate a personal injury case and get the compensation you are owed for your injury:
- That either the company or a single employee had a duty to ensure that your injury did not occur.
- That this company was not acting according to their duty and put you and possibly others at risk.
- That their breach of duty and irresponsibility with their customer's safety was responsible for your injury.
- You experienced physical, emotional or financial damages because of your injuries.

Types of Personal Injury Claims
As stated above there are several forms of personal injuries that you can collect compensation from, below is a more detailed list:
If you went into a hospital to seek treatment for something and left worse off than when you walked in, what do you do? Although every medical procedure does contain an element of risk there are steps that a hospital or doctor can take to decrease the risk as much as possible.
If your injury was caused by a doctor or surgeon’s error and even in the case of unsanitary conditions within the hospital, they are liable for your injuries. Essentially if the hospital caused your injury, even by accident they are responsible for your injury and therefore responsible for providing you with the compensation you deserve.
As stated above medical malpractice is any negligent actions taken by a hospital or doctor that caused your injuries.
Here is a list of some of the most common instances of medical malpractice:
- Misdiagnosis: This is when a doctor or hospital incorrectly diagnoses you with a condition or disease and provides treatment that at best doesn’t help with the disease or condition you have. In some cases, these treatments may do more damage on top of the issues you already have, for instance, if the hospital misdiagnoses you with cancer and employs chemotherapy which destroys your immune system.
- Delayed Diagnosis: This occurs when a doctor or hospital doesn’t see the signs and symptoms of a disease such as cancer early. This can lead to extremely serious and possibly preventable injuries.
- Infection: An infection can occur when a hospital does not effectively and regularly sanitize their tools for procedures.
- Negligence: When a doctor doesn’t pay attention during a procedure and puts his patient at risk.
At Flynn and Associates, we have represented thousands of clients in the state of New Jersey in their automobile accident cases. If you have experienced a personal injury from an automobile accident in the state of New Jersey, we have you covered.
We will ensure that you get all the compensation you are owed for your injury caused by the negligence of another.
Provided below are some of the most common causes of personal injuries in automobile accidents:
- If another driver on the roadway has put both their own safety as well as the safety of others at risk by driving while intoxicated or drowsy. Either of these conditions can impair a driver’s ability to effectively focus on the roadway.
- Accidents caused by the negligent actions of a passenger of a car, while the driver may not be liable to the passenger who acted negligently most certainly is.
- If you were hit by a car and the driver decided it would be a good idea to leave the scene of the accident to avoid punishment for their accident.
- If you were either hit by a car while walking as a pedestrian or you were driving and a pedestrian acted negligently and caused you to get into an accident.
- If you were involved in a motorcycle accident caused by the negligence of others whether you were driving the motorcycle or the car.
- If you were involved in a cycling accident caused by the negligence of others whether you were cycling or driving the car.
- If you were involved in a Commercial truck accident caused by the negligence of others whether you were driving the commercial truck or the car.
- If you were involved in an accident because of the negligent actions of public transport or any ride-sharing services.
This kind of liability applies when you have sustained an injury while on someone else’s property and the injury was caused by their negligence. Premises liability can apply in the case that you are invited to a house by a homeowner or if you are injured at a retail store or restaurant.
The most common type of injury that involves premises liability is slip and fall injuries that occur on another’s property. This injury may have been caused by negligence if there was a slippery floor that went unmarked and you slipped and fell causing injury.
While all of us love our dogs, it is still possible for dogs to do rather large amounts of both physical and emotional damage if they decide to attack.
While this may seem like a scenario that causes only physical damage, a dog bite can leave victims scarred for life mentally and in a country so filled with dogs it can be difficult to find areas that are safe for the victim’s mental well-being.
In the case of a dog bite the owner of the pet is held liable for their pet’s actions and they will be responsible for giving you the compensation you deserve. If you were bitten by a dog and sustained possibly severe personal injuries we will help to negotiate with insurance companies to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve.
Assault & Inadequate Security
Any time you are on a company’s property they are required to keep you safe by providing security or employees to ensure the safety of customers. A common instance of this is in bars where maybe a customer is over-served or security personnel do not remove a violent or belligerent customer.
This customer could then cause you injury by either being directly violent or causing accidental damage. While companies cannot predict the future if they could have acted to prevent your injury and didn’t, they are liable.
If you are injured while at work and doing your job to the regulation of your employer, the company's workman’s compensation will cover your medical bills as well as lost wages due to your injuries.
However, if you suspect that your injury was caused by the negligence of your employer, you may be able to file a third-party claim and get more compensation than your workman’s compensation.
If you sustained a personal injury in any of the ways above, we promise to provide you with the best in legal representation.

Give us a call for your free consultation to discuss your possible case or just ask for advice and knowledge from our experienced legal team. Personal injury is a broad term that covers any injury you suffer to your physical person. It does not include damage to your property or to your reputation.
A personal injury claim is when you sue another person or party for causing your accident. In most cases, a personal injury claim seeks compensation from an individual or company’s insurance policy.
What Makes Up A Personal Injury Claim?
There are two basic components of a personal injury legal claim assertion of negligence and a claim for damages associated with your injury.
In legal terms, negligence is acting in a manner that shows a lack of care or responsibility and can possibly lead to injury. Negligence can take many forms that end with an injury. For example in the case of an automobile accident claim, negligence may be represented by an intoxicated or drowsy driver.
In the case of a slip and fall accident claim, it is possible that the property owner acted negligently by not taking good care of his/her property. Most importantly there needs to be proof that someone else was responsible for your accident whether they were negligent or malicious.
Once you have proven that another person or company was responsible for your injury it is then time to assess how much money the responsible party owes you.
The money the responsible party owes you is the damages that you are owed because of their negligence caused your injury.
Listed below are the most common types of damages that you may be owed by a responsible party.
- The full cost of your medical bills associated with your injury as well as the amount of money spent on recovery from your injuries such as physical therapy or trauma counseling.
- Money to cover you for possible future medical procedures that the accident may have caused.
- If you have been unable to work for long periods of time you may need money to make up for the lost wages, you could have earned if you weren’t injured.
- Any pain and suffering that your injury or the accident itself may have caused.
An example of possible pain and suffering from a personal injury is suffering from depression or anxiety caused by your injury or accident. Conditions such as these can be seriously and negatively impact your life tremendously. The physical side of pain and suffering may come in the form of lifelong scars that will never go away or chronic back problems.
In very plain terms pain and suffering are the emotional and physical costs of your injury which can be extremely difficult to put a monetary value on. These personal injury cases can be extremely complex and frustrating, which is why we would be honored to go to battle for you and represent your interests both in the courtroom or the negotiation table.
