Accidents and Injuries
Major accidents can have disastrous personal consequences. They not only cause physical injury, but can have harmful long-term consequences for your health, finances and entire family. You may be entitled to significant financial compensation, but the person or business entity that created the condition which caused the injury is not going to help you, but will simply turn your claim over to an insurance company whose goal is to pay you as little as possible for what happened. Trying to negotiate with the insurance company on your own will almost certainly result in you receiving far less than you deserve. Instead, you need a New Jersey personal injury lawyer who will start a lawsuit on your behalf with the goal of securing the full amount of compensation to which you are entitled.
Every personal injury case is different. Some of the more common ones we handle are:
Slip and Fall/Premises Liability claims – If you slip and fall on someone else’s property as a result of a dangerous condition, you may be entitled to compensation for any injury you sustain. Don’t assume it was your fault, and you are therefore entitled to nothing. The owner of the property is legally responsible to keep it safe, and they can be legally responsible if they fail to do so. This is true not only of your neighbor down the street, but of the owner of a store, shopping mall or other business, as well.
Faulty Security – Everyone has the right to expect that any business premises they enter will be safe and secure. If the business owner has faulty security that puts you at risk of an assault or other attack and you are injured as a result, you have the right to be compensated.
Dog Bites – A dog is the property of its owner. Depending upon the circumstances, these injuries can be very serious, and cause life-long damage. Someone injured by a dog – especially if the owner knew or should have known that the dog is aggressive - is entitled to be compensated for that injury.
Workplace Injuries – Most workplace injuries are resolved by means of a worker’s compensation claim. But depending upon the facts and circumstances of your case, it may be possible for you to pursue a third party personal injury claim against someone other than your employer, even if you were injured on the job.
Motor Vehicle Accidents and Injuries – The number of vehicles on the road in New Jersey is absolutely staggering. But motor vehicle accidents don’t only involve collisions with cars. The accidents can arise from a collision with a truck, motorcycle, train or boat. The injured party can be a driver, passenger, or pedestrian who was struck by the vehicle.
It is important to emphasize that every accident or injury case is different. That’s why you need a New Jersey personal injury lawyer who can evaluate the circumstances of your accident and injuries, determine whether and to what extent you are entitled to financial compensation, and then take the necessary steps to secure it for you. One thing that every personal injury case has in common is that the injured party should act quickly to protect their rights so as to make sure they get the money they deserve.
