What is a personal injury?
This term is used to describe an injury that happens in an accident caused by the reckless or negligent actions of another. Types of personal injury cases we handle include:
- New Jersey Transit Accidents – Every year, people are hurt in accidents involving NJ Transit. These include bus accidents, train and subway accidents, and platform and station accidents. You have the right to recover financial compensation, but it’s important to act quickly.
- Wrongful Death – The loss of a loved one is devastating. But it can be even more difficult to deal with when the negligence of another was the cause. We can help you hold negligent parties accountable and get justice.
- Product Liability – Manufacturers have a responsibility to make products that are safe for consumers to use. But manufacturing defects, design defects, or failure to provide adequate safety warnings can result in an accident that leaves people seriously injured.
You know when the negligence of another party caused you harm. But proving it and recovering financial compensation can be complicated. That’s why you need an experienced personal injury lawyer who can fight for your rights.
We understand the full cost of a significant injury
A personal injury accident can hurt people in many different ways. The types of injuries can include broken bones and injuries to the head, neck, back, shoulders, hands, feet, or hips. Medical treatment is often needed, and it may take months or longer to recover from these injuries. In some cases, victims are left with a permanent disability.
Medical expenses can add up quickly and you may have to miss time from work because of your injuries. But recovering compensation can be difficult for many reasons. These include:
- The negligent party denies doing anything wrong.
- The negligent party blames you for what happened.
- The insurance company denies any liability.
- The insurance company questions the seriousness of your injuries.
- The insurance company argues your injuries were pre-existing.
Insurance companies handle claims every day and are very skilled at finding ways to justify limiting your compensation. They have attorneys looking out for their best interests. You need an attorney who can help you fight back.
