If you have been injured in an accident in New Jersey, call The Cassidy Law Firm for a free evaluation of your case. Do not delay. In some cases, the at-fault party may attempt to destroy evidence to undermine your case. This is referred to as "spoliation of evidence." It is essential that you contact us immediately so that we can send a "spoliation letter" which notifies the defendant of the claim in order to prevent evidence from being destroyed. In addition, the sooner you contact us, the better the chances of finding witnesses who can remember events important to your claim. Also, personal injury claims must normally be brought within two years of the accident/incident because of the statute of limitations. If you do not file your lawsuit within that timeframe, you may be forever barred from pursuing your claims. There are circumstances, however, when the statute of limitations may be “tolled,” allowing you additional time to file your complaint. Call us to find out if you can pursue your claims.
We are committed to providing you with diligent and professional representation and obtaining the compensation you deserve.
