Seigel Law was founded in 1976, and it has grown into a renowned personal injury law firm in New Jersey.

We serve communities throughout the state, including Ridgewood, Hackensack, Fair Lawn, Teaneck, Garfield, Fort Lee, Newark, Jersey City, Paterson and Clifton.

Our award-winning lawyers have a reputation for acting decisively and strategically to seek the best possible results. Our dedication to our clients’ best interests is the reason we have garnered dozens of high six- and seven-figure personal injury settlements and judgments.

Time is of the essence in a personal injury lawsuit

You must file a cause of action by the deadline or you forfeit your right to sue. The New Jersey statute of limitations is typically two years from the date of an accident. However, there are exceptions to this time restriction, such as if you have a claim against a public entity where you must give written notice within 90 days of the accident.

In addition to meeting the strict deadlines imposed by New Jersey laws, you benefit from prompt and thorough investigation of your accident. Evidence disappears, and memories fade over time. Insurance companies and defendants are given an advantage if you delay filing your claim.
