The Keefe Law Firm handles a variety of personal injury cases. We handle car accident cases, we handle dog bite cases. But we also handle the more catastrophic injury cases that may come in and it’s those catastrophic injury cases that are often the most emotional, the most personal, because it involves sudden and very drastic changes to the victims’ lives. And by victims lives… may not only be the injured person, but the parents of the injured person, the spouse of the injured person as well as the children of the injured person. Now, catastrophic injuries have a variety of differences. For an individual, it can be a very complicated back injury which requires surgery. It can be burn injuries. And unfortunately, in some instances, it can mean death for the victim. In New Jersey, when a person dies as a result of an accident or some type of incident, we can help the survivors move forward and… and their… there are various laws that help them do that. There’s one type of law that allows a person, the survivor, to be compensated for the pain and suffering of the victim. And there’s also another law called a wrongful death statute and that helps the… the survivors recover the pecuniary losses of that of the victim’s death. And by Pranay losses, what I mean is they can recover the lost income and also the loss services. Because now instead of a mother or father being present, there’s a… there’s a void and that void does have a—an economic value. And in New Jersey, we’re allowed and able to compensate for that void.
