A law firm exclusively dedicated to the needs of New Jersey injury victims

What is personal injury?

Personal injury involves damage to your physical, emotional or mental well-being caused by the negligence of another person or entity. Our attorneys can assist you in any type of personal injury claim, including:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Catastrophic injury
  • Wrongful death
  • Brain and spinal cord injury
  • Burn injury
  • Electrocution and electrical injury
  • Premises liability
  • Shopping mall and supermarket injury
  • Sidewalk injury
  • Dog bite

Were you in a motor vehicle accident?

Even a seemingly minor auto accident can inflict substantial injuries on the occupants of the vehicles or on pedestrians and bicyclists who are in the path of a negligent driver. Motor vehicle claims are handled differently than other types of personal injury cases, because in almost all traffic accidents, we begin by negotiating with the auto insurance companies. Our lawyers are often able to negotiate a settlement in a timely manner. However, we also recommend when trial is a better course of action to resolve:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Hit-and-run accidents
  • Public transportation accidents

Medical malpractice

A medical malpractice claim may arise if the doctor who owed you a duty of care failed to meet the standards expected of a similarly situated physician and you were injured as a result. The leader of our medical malpractice team includes a medical doctor who gives us a firsthand perspective of the medical industry. We guide your family through the challenges associated with birth injuries, catastrophic injuries and wrongful death caused by:

  • Failure to diagnose
  • Surgical errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Medication errors
  • Defective drugs
  • Ob-Gyn errors
  • Negligence during prenatal care
  • Punctured organs
  • Lasik surgery errors
  • Nursing home injuries
  • Nursing home medication errors
  • Malnutrition and dehydration in nursing facilities
  • Injuries from falls in a nursing home
  • Assault on elderly or disabled persons
  • Wandering off (elopement) from nursing homes

Workers compensation may be available to you

Most workers injured or sickened on the job are entitled to workers compensation benefits under New Jersey law. You may receive money for medical treatments and lost wages, but you also forfeit your right to sue for additional damages, unless your employer exhibited grievous negligence. Our lawyers give you the help you need to obtain benefits under the NJ Department of Labor and Workforce Development Workers Compensation program. We also explore other potential sources of financial recovery for your injuries and disabilities.
