Personal Injury Lawyer FAQ
How Do I Begin The Filing Process For A Personal Injury Lawsuit?
The plaintiff, represented by Bathgate, Wegener, & Wolf, must file a complaint in civil court and have it served on the defendant along with a summons. A process server can serve the defendant the documents necessary, along with a time frame required by law for the defendant to answer. If the complaint is not answered within that time frame, New Jersey law allows us to enter a default against the defendant.
Can I Still Earn Compensation If I’m Partially At Fault for My Injury?
In New Jersey, Bathgate Wegener & Wolf can earn you recovery settlements even if you’re partially at fault for an accident resulting in personal injury, given that you are less than 50% at fault. This is called a comparative fault statute, and you’ll need a team of experienced personal injury attorneys on your side like Bathgate Wegener & Wolf to convince the courts that you were less at fault than the offending party.
