Car Accident Injuries

A car accident can turn your life upside down. We’re here to help you get back on your feet again. If you’ve been injured in an auto accident, either as a driver, passenger or pedestrian, we know how overwhelmed you must feel. You might face a long road to recovery, plus potential financial hardship from lost wages and medical bills. Our personal injury attorneys have been handling car accident lawsuits for decades and will help you every step of the way.

Trucking Accidents

Collisions involving large trucks can be highly traumatic—and deadly. Approximately 10% of auto accident injury victims in a large truck collision are killed. Large trucks are also much more likely to be involved in multi-vehicle crashes than passenger cars. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, close to 4,700 fatal accidents involved large trucks in 2017. If you or a loved one has been injured in a trucking accident, our attorneys will see that you get the compensation you deserve.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents tend to result in serious injuries that lead to debilitating pain, lost wages and overwhelming medical bills that can leave you feeling trapped. Let us help you regain your freedom and get your life back. If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, we’ll fight for your rights and help you get the compensation you deserve under the law.

Bus Accidents

If you or your loved one has been involved in a bus accident, you might be entitled to compensation for undue pain and suffering, lost wages, and medical bills that you now face. Even if you are not physically injured in a bus accident, you might need help coping with the psychological trauma in the aftermath. When a death occurs, the driver responsible might also face a claim for wrongful death. Our attorneys offer knowledgeable legal counsel and representation. We’ll fight for your rights, and help you get the settlement you deserve under the law.

Bicycle Accidents

Bike accidents are devastating, but they are often unavoidable. Even when you follow all the rules of the road, or are an experienced cyclist, you’re still at the mercy of the other vehicles around you and their reckless operators. Let us take a look at your bike accident report with our team of specialists and get to the bottom of how your accident occurred. Our bike accident attorneys want you to get the maximum compensation for your injuries, and will find out exactly what coverage applies to your situation—even if it was a hit and run.

Burn Injuries

Victims of fires and burn injuries are often left with scars, both physical and psychological, as they struggle with life-altering pain, lost wages and massive medical bills. When your burn injuries are the result of someone else’s negligence, such as a landlord not following fire codes, you may be entitled to compensation under the law.

Pedestrian Accidents

While the number of car accident deaths is falling nationwide, pedestrian fatalities are on the rise. According to the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA), in the past decade, car crash fatalities decreased by 14%, but pedestrian deaths have increased by a whopping 27%. If you or a loved one have been hit by a car and the driver is found to be at fault, they are responsible for the damages caused by their carelessness. This is one reason New Jersey requires that all drivers buy car insurance. We will get you the settlement you deserve from that policy when we file a personal injury claim on your behalf.

Hit and Runs

Fleeing the scene of an accident, also known as “hit and run”, is a crime in New Jersey. The perpetrator can face criminal consequences (such as jail time) and civil consequences (like a personal injury lawsuit). While it’s possible to file a lawsuit against the perpetrator of a hit and run accident, whether or not it will be successful depends on a variety of factors. The most important decision you must make when pursuing a hit and run accident claim is choosing an experienced lawyer who will be on your side. We’ve won hundreds of thousands of dollars in compensation for hit and run victims in situations just like yours.

Premises Liability

If you’re seriously injured on the premises of a store or business due to their negligence, they may be held responsible for your injuries. If they are, they will have to pay for the damages they caused after you’ve filed a premises liability claim. Reach out to us to find out more about what this entails, and how our premises liability attorneys can help you get the settlement you deserve.

Slip and Fall Accidents

If you’re suffering from a slip and fall injury that occurred on someone else’s property, you might be entitled to compensation. There are many dangerous conditions that can result in a person slipping or tripping, including poor lighting, torn carpeting, narrow stairs, or unexpected changes in flooring. Broken, cracked, icy or snowy public sidewalks can also result in slips and falls, as can hidden hazards such as potholes. When your injuries have been caused by someone else’s negligence, you need a slip and fall attorney who cares about both your physical and financial recovery.

Construction Accidents

Construction can be a dangerous line of work, and construction workers put their safety—and their lives—on the line every day. Every year, hundreds of construction workers are killed on the job, and many more suffer serious injuries due to unsafe or unexpected conditions. If you’ve been injured in a construction accident, you may be entitled to compensation by law.

Nursing Home Abuse

If you suspect that elder abuse or neglect is taking place in a nursing home, you need to take immediate action to protect the safety, health and legal rights of your loved one. Nursing home abuse puts the elderly in grave danger and is very distressing to both the victim and to their families. Let our nursing home abuse attorneys help you figure out the next steps to take right away.

Work Injuries

Companies in New Jersey are required by law to pay the medical bills for employees injured at work. Sometimes, however, your employer isn’t responsible for your injuries. Faulty equipment or careless vendors can also be held responsible for accidents that result in life-threatening injuries. If your work injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, you might be entitled to compensation. Our workers’ compensation attorneys will help you figure out what damages are available to you, and help you get every dollar you deserve.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor or practitioner breaches his or her duties of care to a patient. The consequences of medical malpractice can be serious, and we treat your claim with the seriousness it deserves. If you were injured due to medical malpractice, our experienced attorneys will stand up for your rights and hold doctors responsible for their misconduct.

Birth Injuries

If your child was injured at birth, we understand how devastating it is to your family—and how devastating it is to struggle with the cost of providing physical therapy, special education and therapeutic services on top of that. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), hospitalization for birth defects alone costs the US over $26 billion each year. To find out if you are owed compensation from negligent medical professionals for your child’s birth injury, reach out to us today for a consultation.

Elements of a Personal Injury Claim

Even if you have an injury, you may not have the right to bring a claim against someone unless you have all the elements necessary to do so. Winning a personal injury lawsuit takes proving four main elements, with exceptions for claims that use strict liability laws. Finding out whether you have the right elements for a claim may take a consultation with an attorney.

  1. Duty to exercise reasonable care. Everyone has a legal duty to exercise enough care not to cause injuries to others. Certain parties, however, such as drivers, doctors and property owners, have unique duties of care based on the law or the standards in their industries. The defendant must have owed you a duty of care before your accident.
  2. Breach of duty. A breach of duty can refer to an act of negligence, recklessness or intent to harm that fails to fulfill the defendant’s duties of care to the plaintiff. The defendant must have breached a duty of care toward you for you to have grounds for a claim.
  3. Causation. You or your lawyer must have evidence of a causal link between the defendant’s act of negligence and your injuries or damages. If someone else caused your injuries, or you caused your own injuries, the defendant may not owe you any compensation.
  4. Damages. The defendant’s breach of duty of care must have created your damages, injuries or losses. You must show proof of your compensable damages to a judge or jury, such as pay stubs, receipts, medical bills, mechanic’s estimates and testimony from family members.

During a personal injury case in Newark, the burden of proof will land on your side of the claim, not the defendant’s. It is up to you, the plaintiff, to prove the defendant’s fault for your injuries and liability for your damages. Hiring an attorney from our law firm could make it easier to prove your case and obtain fair compensation from the at-fault party.

Compensation Available

If you have all the necessary elements for a claim and your lawyer succeeds in proving your case against the defendant, you and your family could receive compensation for your losses in the form of an insurance settlement or jury verdict. An award won for a personal injury in New Jersey could cover many damages, including both the economic and noneconomic losses you and your family suffered.

  • Medical bills. The defendant may owe you for your past and future medical expenses, including any surgeries, treatments, therapies, medical supplies or medications you may need.
  • Lost wages. You may be eligible for lost wage recovery: compensation for your missed shifts at work due to your personal injury. If you cannot return to your previous job due to a disability, lost wages benefits may cover you for life.
  • Property damages. If you had to repair a piece of property after an accident, such as your vehicle after a car crash, the defendant may have to reimburse you for the money you spent on repairs or replacement.
  • Pain and suffering. New Jersey law allows you to seek restitution for your intangible losses as well, including physical discomfort, pain, emotional anguish, trauma, lost quality of life and loss of consortium.

The potential value of your Newark personal injury claim depends on the extent of your damages. Serious cases involving permanent injuries, disabilities or disfigurement, for example, may be eligible for greater compensation than minor injury claims. The power of your attorney could also make an important difference. The right lawyer can argue for fair recovery for your damages, as well as go to court against a defendant, if necessary, for maximum compensation.
