The state of New Jersey has hundreds of thousands of motor vehicle accidents each year. 

One of the most common questions we get at Peter Michael Law is “I just got in an accident, do I have a Personal Injury case?” 

To recover on a claim for personal injuries, we must prove you have “Permanent Damages” AKA “Permanent Injuries.”

Here are 4 of the common type of “Permanent Injuries”

  • Disc bulges 
  • Disc herniations
  • Ligament tears
  • Bone fractures 
  • Paralysis

The only way we can prove to the insurance company that you have permanent injuries is by receiving a medical diagnosis by a doctor and MRI Imaging!

A MRI is important because it shows alternative imaging that an X-Ray and CT will not show.

Whether it’s motor vehicle accidents, slip, and fall or construction accidents, if you’re looking to file a Personal Injury Claim in New Jersey you SHOULD seek medical attention within the first 7 days. 

The reason speed is so important, because it gives you the best chances of receiving maximum compensation on your personal injury matter. There must be no doubt that these permanent injuries are linked to your accident; and that’s my job to prove! 

The #1 reason we at Peter Michael Law cannot take on a personal injury case is that the victim didn’t seek medical evaluation soon enough.
