Many personal injury claims involve the need for property damage compensation. These are damages commonly related to your vehicle or other personal property or items. One of the most frequent causes of property damage claims stem from auto accidents. If you have suffered property damage due to the negligence, carelessness, or recklessness of another party in Mercer County, Davé Law Firm can help. We are known for the quality of our legal representation, including the personalized attention you will receive from our attentive attorneys and staff.
What Is Property Damage in New Jersey Personal Injury Cases?
Property damage is any harm or destruction done to your property that is caused by someone else’s negligence or willful act.
These damages can include:
- Damage to your vehicle.
- Damage to personal items inside your vehicle, such as cell phones, cameras, your GPS system, laptops, and more.
- Damage to other personal property, such as to your home, mailbox, or other items. An example is a driver who smashes into your yard causing destruction of your real property.
- Reimbursement for rental cars or other forms of transportation needed when your vehicle is being repaired.
How you will be compensated for these and other damages in your claim will depend on the type of damage that was done, the extent of the destruction or harm, and how long the harm has lasted or is expected to last. Our capable legal team can assist you in understanding how these factors may affect the compensation you may be able to recover in such cases.
You generally have two options for filing a property damage claim. The factor that will affect which option you pursue will generally depend on the nature and value of the property damaged. For example, if the value of the property is relatively low, such as a damaged cell phone, you can file a claim in small claims court. However, if your vehicle was totally destroyed or thousands of dollars of damage was caused to your home, it will not be considered a “small” claim. This will become part of a civil court claim along with any other types of injury damages. These claims generally require the services of an experienced personal injury attorney for optimum results.
