Request a Free Consultation

After an injury, there are a variety of damages that a Cherry Hill injury lawyer may be able to recover on behalf of the injured party. There may be unpaid medical bills, damaged property, and lost wages. Other household bills may pile up and create a mountain of debt that lasts long after the physical effects of an injury, not to mention the pain and suffering associated with the injury.

When another person or entity is at fault for your injuries, a Cherry Hill personal injury lawyer may help recover losses and provide for the expenses you are facing. An award for damages will ease your burden as you convalesce and help ensure a solid financial recovery as well.

While the at-fault party may be responsible for compensatory damages relating to medical costs and lost income, they may also owe punitive damages. New Jersey law states that punitive damages may be awarded up to five times the compensatory amount or $350,000, whichever is greater.
