What Types Of Compensation Can I Get?


Tort law is a fundamental element of our legal system. This enables a victim of negligence or a harmful intentional act to obtain compensation from the party who caused the injury. The type of damages the victim is entitled to depends on the specific circumstances of the case, but in general terms, damages fall into two categories: financial losses and non-economic losses such as pain and suffering.

After an accident, it is important to work with a personal injury lawyer who understands the various types of compensation that are available and who can calculate the full value of each type of compensation you are eligible to receive.

Maximizing Your Compensation

At Gold, Albanese, Barletti & Locascio L.L.C., our attorneys have years of experience representing accident victims in New Jersey. We know how to determine your financial needs after an injury and to place a value on your non-economic losses. We will seek maximum damages for you.

Each accident case is unique. When we represent you, we will thoroughly examine the physical, financial and emotional effects the event has had on your life. Our goal will be to obtain full compensation for all of your losses. Depending on the circumstances of your case, this could include:

  • Chiropractic care or physical therapy
  • Cost of medications or pain treatment
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Lost income you would have earned had you not been injured
  • Medical costs related to the accident, including future medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Psychological counseling
  • Travel expenses to and from your doctor

Victims of specific types of accidents may be eligible for additional compensation. For example, a person who has suffered a catastrophic brain or spinal cord injury may be eligible for lifelong expenses for home health care services or a residential care facility, adjusted for inflation. Our law firm will make a full and complete evaluation of all of your economic and non-economic losses for inclusion in your claim and seek to maximize the total compensation you receive.

Sources of Compensation

Identifying possible sources of compensation is another important piece of the puzzle. In a car accident case, these could include the liability insurance of the other driver, your own uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, and if you were injured while on the job, the workers’ compensation system. Gold, Albanese, Barletti & Locascio L.L.C., will be your strong advocate, seeking the best possible result for you.
