An unexpected injury resulting from a New Jersey accident can have life-altering consequences for you and your family. Not only do you face the physical pain and difficulty of the injury itself, which may have lasting consequences, but you may also struggle with emotional trauma or stress from the accident, and the financial burden of medical expenses, lost wages, and other costs. Under these trying circumstances, having an experienced personal injury attorney who you can depend on is invaluable.

After an automobile accident in NJ, the most important thing for you to focus on is getting the medical care you need. We can work with your medical providers to ensure that you receive prompt and complete treatment. Meanwhile, we will collaborate with accident investigators to determine who bears the legal fault for your injuries, and if you were harmed as a result of another party’s negligence, we will work to hold them accountable for your damages.

Your New Jersey personal injury lawyer can help you document the details of your case and the extent of your damages, then help you pursue compensation for your medical costs, pain and suffering, lost wages (including future earning potential), and other types of financial damages. Our extensive experience with personal injury cases means that we will fight hard to defeat the insurance company’s lawyers to win your case and secure you the full compensation that you deserve.

NJ Car Accident Attorney

No matter how carefully you drive, you can’t control the actions of other motorists, and the greatest cause of automotive accidents in New Jersey is driver error. Negligent drivers can cause serious accidents through a number of dangerous behaviors including:

  • Distracted driving, including texting or mobile device use
  • Impaired driving while under the influence of alcohol or other substances
  • Drowsy driving
  • Speeding
  • Ignoring red lights or stop signs
  • Improper lane changes

By collaborating with accident investigators and reconstruction specialists, we can determine the sequence of events that caused your injury and get you the fair compensation you deserve.

NJ Commercial Truck Accident Lawyer

So much of America’s shipping industry relies on large commercial trucks to transport everything from manufactured goods to hazardous materials, and the drivers of those trucks often put in long hours under tremendous pressure to make deadlines. Federal regulations mandate a certain amount of scheduled rest for commercial truck drivers, but some trucking companies squeeze their drivers and their equipment beyond what regulations allow. Commercial trucks are much, much larger and heavier than passenger vehicles, and accidents involving them can be devastating. If you’ve suffered such an accident due to a negligent truck driver or trucking company, an experienced truck accident lawyer can help secure the evidence needed to make your case against the trucking company’s insurer and secure you fair and complete compensation.

NJ Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Motorcyclists are vastly more likely to suffer fatal injuries in a collision than the occupants of passenger cars. That vulnerability on the road doesn’t have to transfer into the courtroom or the settlement negotiating table, as long as you have an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer working on your side. We have helped injured plaintiffs win compensation for injuries caused by the negligence of other motorists, as well as injuries due to road defects – such as unsafe intersections and severe potholes.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents in New Jersey

The NHTSA recognizes pedestrians and cyclists as some of the most vulnerable road users, as they lack the physical protection of any sort of rigid cabin around their bodies. As a result, cyclists and pedestrians can sustain some of the most severe injuries in accidents involving motor vehicles. These can include injuries to the head and face, back and neck injuries (including spinal injuries), and broken bones. Every cyclist or pedestrian accident injury case deserves to be handled with delicacy and individual care to secure you the compensation you need.

Premises Liability/Slip and Fall Injuries in NJ

A business owner has a duty of care to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition and to warn visitors of any hazards. When that duty is breached, by allowing a slipping or tripping hazard to persist on the property, or by failing to provide sufficient security as to allow visitors to be injured by criminal activity, the injured party may seek compensation for that negligence. If you’ve been injured on a commercial property in or around Mountainside, NJ due to negligence by the parties responsible for the safe maintenance of that property, we can help build your case and fight for the maximum available compensation.
