You Deserve Compensation for Your Newark Accident
A serious injury can disrupt every part of your life, in ways you may never have imagined.
One minute, you’re fine – going about your daily routine, as healthy as ever.
Then you cross paths with someone who is dangerously reckless. Suddenly, everything has changed. Pain – debilitating, life-changing pain – takes over your routine.
It’s hard to take care of yourself, much less anyone else. If you have children, ill family members, or even pets to take care of, you’re suddenly not up to the task anymore.
With injuries as serious as yours, working becomes incredibly difficult – maybe impossible. But just because you can’t work doesn’t mean the bills stop coming in. Especially the medical bills.
This accident has put your family in a tough situation. You never could have planned for this kind of financial hardship. And as your injury lingers for weeks, even months, things are only getting worse.
How can you make things better? By pursuing a personal injury claim.
Your injuries are severe. The costs of this accident are quickly adding up. You deserve compensation from the person who started all of this trouble in the first place.
Accidents happen, but they’re not unavoidable. New Jersey laws recognize this. That’s why there’s such a thing as the personal injury claims process – to help people in situations like yours get the money they deserve. It’s also why there are lawyers like Console and Associates who handle personal injury cases exclusively. With our Newark injury attorneys on your side, we’ll fight to get you the settlement you need to get your life back on track.
Types of Personal Injuries in Newark, New Jersey
Personal injury law includes more than just car accidents. If you were in an accident and someone else is at fault, you have rights.
Below are a few of the most common types of accidents we’ve encountered in Newark during our decades of practicing here.
Car Accidents on Newark Roads
If you’re one of the several thousand victims who suffered injuries in a Newark car accident this year, we’re here to help. Console and Associates has experience handling Newark motor vehicle cases of all kinds.
Whether you were rear-ended or struck head-on, t-boned or sideswiped, we’ve won a case involving a car crash like yours. Our Newark, NJ, personal injury attorneys have helped victims of car accidents on major highways like the New Jersey Turnpike as well as those hurt on city roads like Springfield Avenue. If someone else was at fault for your collision – whether they ran a stop sign, drove while intoxicated, or were distracted by cell phone use – we’ll do the work to investigate the crash and prove their negligence.
Over more than 20 years of practicing law, our Newark injury lawyers have consistently gotten our thousands of clients the maximum amount of money available to them. With a history of securing numerous six-figure car accident settlements, you can trust that we’ll get you every dollar you deserve.
Because we handle so many car accident claims, we know what kind of concerns you have after a crash. That’s why we’ll handle your property damage claim at no cost and help you get your car fixed. If there are issues with your medical bills, don’t worry – our dedicated in-house Personal Injury Protection (PIP) department will take care of everything.
Medical Malpractice Cases in Newark
Newark is home to major hospitals. You’d expect the physicians in these facilities to act with caution, knowing the lives of innocent patients are in their hands. But that doesn’t always happen. Medical mistakes are more common than you’d like to believe – and they’re the third leading cause of death nationwide, according to the American Association for Justice.
Hospitals where instances of medical malpractice could occur in Newark include:
- Newark Beth Israel Medical Center
- University Hospital
- Children’s Hospital of New Jersey
- Columbus Hospital LTACH
- Saint Michael’s Medical Center
But hospitals aren’t the only place in Newark where a doctor could make a dangerous mistake. In fact, one of our most recent Newark cases involved a physician who saw his clients at an unlikely place: the airport.
Disclaimer: Results may vary depending on your particular facts and legal circumstances.
This particular doctor had an office at Newark Liberty International Airport, where he often treated employees who worked nearby. Our client was one such patient. The airport doctor prescribed him thousands upon thousands of narcotic medications without taking the precautions necessary to keep this patient safe. Eventually, the volume of prescription drugs the doctor had given our client cost the man his life.
We hope you haven’t been through a tragedy like this. But if you have, we can do for your family what we did for his. We fought to get them as much compensation as possible — $925,000. Through the wrongful death claim against the physician, we held him as legally responsible as you can in a civil claim.
But we knew that still wasn’t enough. So we brought his negligence to the attention of the New Jersey State Board of Medical Examiners, so he can face the disciplinary action he deserves.
When we handle a Newark medical malpractice case, we go the extra mile to try and hold negligent physicians accountable – and stop truly dangerous doctors from hurting someone else.
Slip and Falls
A safety hazard is always bad news, whether it’s on a public, private residential, or commercial property. If a careless property owner’s poor maintenance practices caused your fall injury, that person or entity needs to pay for it.
Our personal injury lawyers in Newark, NJ, have handled multiple slip and fall cases across New Jersey. Whether you fell at someone else’s residence in Newark’s North, Central, or West Ward or on a business property in the East or South Ward, we have the experience to help.
In Newark, as in the rest of New Jersey, a dog’s owner is legally responsible for its behavior. That includes bites and other aggressive attacks. If you suffered serious injuries in a dog bite, let us fight to get you every dollar of compensation you deserve.
With more than 100,000 employees commuting into the city each workday, it’s safe to say that a lot of people work in Newark. And sometimes, unfortunately, those busy workplaces hold hidden dangers.
Workplace injuries come in many forms. You probably imagine situations like quick and dramatic accidents on construction sites – and these certainly happen. But so do injuries that occur over years, like asbestos exposure. While not as instantaneous, the effects are no less serious. Asbestos is linked to mesothelioma, a deadly form of cancer.
Whatever kind of workplace injury you suffered, you have rights. Our Newark injury lawyers can help you find out if you’re eligible to pursue a third-party personal injury claim on top of the worker’s compensation claim you’re entitled to.
Understanding the Newark Personal Injury Claims Process
The process of pursuing a Newark personal injury claim or lawsuit can be complicated. But it’s okay if you’ve never made a claim or sued anyone before. We’ll handle every aspect of the legal case, and we’ll walk you through the process so you’re never confused about what’s going on or what happens next.
Here are the three stages most personal injury claims in Newark, NJ, will go through, and what you can expect in each.
Your top priority after an accident is to get better. That’s what the treating phase is all about. During this time, you’ll focus on making the best possible physical recovery.
You’ll see top-notch doctors who specialize in treating injuries like yours. You’ll get all of the medical care you need, from diagnostic testing to physical therapy, from first-line noninvasive treatments to any necessary surgical procedures.
Getting you back to your old – healthier – self is what’s most important. But the treating phase serves another purpose, too. Your medical records and your doctors’ notes document your injuries. They express how serious the damage was and how much you have to go through as you work toward recovery. This documentation is necessary when it comes to the next stage of the claims process, the negotiation phase.
So what are we, your attorneys, doing while you’re working to get better?
For one thing, we’re keeping in touch with you and your doctors and managing this documentation of your injuries. We make sure that you’re seeing the right kinds of doctors to address all of your health concerns, and that nothing stands in the way of you getting the medical care you need.
We’re also building your case. We compile and organize all of the information necessary to prove that your injuries were severe enough to merit maximum compensation. At the same time, we’re collecting records of your other damages – things like lost wages and any other accident-related expenses. We investigate the accident and dig deeper into who is legally and financially responsible for your injuries.
Since getting better is your most important job right now, we work hard to make sure there’s nothing to distract you from recovery. We take over dealing with the insurance companies involved in your claim. We’ll keep track of your medical bills and all other paperwork related to your claim.
Remember all of that evidence from the treating phase? Well, the negotiation phase is when we present that evidence to the other side and start fighting to get you the money you deserve.
We use those records of your injuries, medical treatments, lost wages, and other damages to create what’s called a personal injury demand package. The demand letter, and the evidence that supports it, is what opens negotiations with the insurance company of the person or entity that hurt you.
With more than two decades of experience under our belts – not to mention insider knowledge of the insurance industry and legal defense work – we’re excellent negotiators. We can tell when an insurer is trying to get away with paying out less than you deserve, or when it denies coverage without any legal grounds for doing so.
And we’re willing to take the case as far as necessary to get you the results you deserve. In recent years, our Newark personal injury lawyers have even taken a case all the way to the New Jersey State Supreme Court to protect our client’s rights.
Not all cases get to the litigation phase, but many do. That’s because the influential insurance industry has a lot of power. Today’s insurers are less willing than ever to settle claims for the amount of money you deserve. But don’t worry – that doesn’t mean you won’t get your compensation. It just means that your Newark injury attorneys will most likely have to file a lawsuit to get it for you.
This phase of the claims process includes the discovery stage. During discovery, we learn as much as possible about the defendant’s side of the case. We get written and oral answers to questions about the accident. We also show the defense the details of your case – and why the defendant doesn’t want to have to face us in a courtroom.
You see, if a case goes to trial, it can delay your claim’s resolution a great deal – sometimes by years. A trial can be expensive – especially with the legal filing fees and the cost of expert witnesses to testify – and those expenses can leave you with less money at the end of your case. Since you want to get your money sooner and keep more of it in your pocket, it’s better if we can settle the case for the money you deserve rather than having to take it to trial.
Just because your case is in litigation doesn’t mean it will go to trial. We keep negotiating throughout the claim. Your case may go to arbitration, where neutral parties hear the evidence and recommend a fair resolution.
The vast majority of our cases settle before trial. But if yours is an exception, you can be sure that we’re ready for the courtroom. One factor that sets Console and Associates apart is that we prepare every case for trial from day one. This whole time we’ve been gathering evidence in your claim, we’ve also been building your case for success – whether or not it ever goes to court.
