We know how stressful the weeks after an accident can be for victims, and we know how to help you through this difficult time.
Personal injury is a broad term that covers any injury you suffer to your physical person. It does not include damage to your property or to your reputation.
A personal injury claim is when you sue another person or party for causing your accident. In most cases, a personal injury claim seeks compensation from an individual or company’s insurance policy.
You need two basic components for a personal injury lawsuit, an assertion of negligence and a claim for damages.
In personal injury, negligence means showing a lack of care. This negligence can take many forms. For auto claims, negligence could mean a reckless or distracted driver. In a slip and fall claim, the negligent party is an inattentive property owner. For your claim to be successful, we must prove that someone else is at fault for your accident.
After proving negligence, the next step is determining how much money you deserve for your injury. These are your damages in your claim, sometimes known as monetary or money damages. Your damages can include:
Suffering from depression or anxiety can have a lasting impact on your health and well-being. The physical scars from your injury will stay with you for the rest of your life. You deserve compensation for these damages as well. Pain and suffering is a legal term intended to cover the emotional and physical cost of your injury, things that it’s otherwise hard to put a price tag on.
The personal injury claims process can be complicated. It is important to hire an attorney like Console and Associates to help you navigate it so you can make sure you are demanding the settlement that will help you get your life back on track.
At Console and Associates, we only take personal injury cases. We handle claims like yours day in and day out, and no one understands New Jersey personal injury law more than we do. When you let us file your claim, you get a full legal team with more than 25 years of experience.

Personal injury law covers a variety of accidents, including:
You go to a hospital to get better, but what happens when you leave in worse shape than when you went in? Any medical procedure poses risks, but a lot of injuries that happen at the hospital are preventable. Whether it was a doctor’s error or unsanitary conditions, if the hospital caused your injury, they are responsible for it. Medical malpractice covers any case where your injuries resulted due to errors or negligence from a doctor or other healthcare provider.
Some common forms of malpractice include:
At Console and Associates, we’ve handled thousands of auto injury claims in New Jersey. From the Newark tunnel to the bridge to Wildwood, we’ve got you covered. We’ll help you get compensated for your personal injury. Auto accidents cover any personal injury that occurred that involves a vehicle, including:
Premises liability covers any injury you receive while you’re on someone else’s property. This includes the private property of a homeowner who invited you over as well as injuries when you’re out shopping at a retail store. One of the most common examples of premises liability is injury due to a slip, trip, or fall.
Man’s best friend is capable of inflicting serious injury. If someone’s dog injured you, we hold the owner responsible. Our dog bite lawyer work with their insurance company to get you the money you deserve.
When you’re on a company’s property, that company has a responsibility to keep you safe. While no one can predict every situation, if your assault was preventable, they are liable for it.
If you are injured on the job, your employer’s workers compensation insurance helps cover your medical costs. However, if your injury was caused by a defective or unsafe product, you may be able to file what’s called a “third party liability” claim. Our worker’s compensation lawyers can help.
The personal injury claims process is very complicated, which is why it is important to work with a lawyer with experience resolving personal injury claims who can help you make your way through it.
We’re here to answer your questions and to take care of all the details so that you can focus on getting better.

Never put off treatment for an injury. You are only going to make it worse, increasing your medical bills and delaying the time until you can get back on your feet.

We never charge you anything our services until you win your claim. From your first call until the day we reach settlement, you’ll never pay anything for your personal injury claim. Our No Fee Promise aligns our goals with yours. Instead of charging you an hourly rate for your services, we take a portion of your final settlement as payment. What this means is that the amount of money we receive as payment is directly related to the amount of money you receive in your settlement. This is known as a contingency fee. When other lawyers charge hourly fees or flat costs, they don’t necessarily care if you win or lose. If a lawyer charges hourly, then they want to rack up as many hours as possible to make the most money. If a lawyer charges a flat fee, you might only receive one or two hours of work on your case. At Console and Associates, we will put in as much time and energy that is necessary to help you win your case. Period. If we can’t successfully resolve your claim, you owe nothing. That’s the other part of our No Fee Promise. You owe nothing unless we win.
