New Jersey Personal Injury Lawyers
When you are injured by the negligence of another individual or entity, every aspect of your life might be disrupted. Severe pain and disabling injuries might prevent you from working or engaging in your everyday pre-injury activities. These physical hardships are typically accompanied by financial challenges that include the cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle, paying medical bills, and coping with diminished household income from a family breadwinner who is off work.

Auto Accident Claims, Settlements & Litigation in New Jersey
When you are involved in a collision with a driver that violates traffic safety laws, operates a motor vehicle when distracted, or drives while intoxicated, the consequences can be horrific accidents that cause permanent debilitating injuries. Our car accident attorneys work with local New Jersey accident reconstruction experts, medical experts, and others with specialized knowledge when taking on auto insurance companies. Insurance companies use an array of strategies to avoid paying claims which include:
- Dismissing the severity of a rear-end collision by designating the crash as “low impact” based on limited or no property damage
- Contending that an accident victim is malingering by exaggerating or fabricating an injury
- Requesting a recorded statement or trying to communicate with injury victims to elicit inconsistent or damaging statements
We anticipate such tactics and protect our clients while striving to obtain a substantial settlement or judgment.
Trucking Accident Claims in New Jersey
Whether you were driving an auto, motorcycle, bicycle, or walking, a collision with a forty-ton tractor-trailer often causes catastrophic injuries such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, quadriplegia, paraplegia, loss of limbs, massive burn injuries, and other severe life-altering injuries. The trucking industry is subject to extensive state and federal regulations designed to mitigate the risk associated with operating these massive vehicles on public roadways. Many trucking accidents occur because of a violation of trucking safety regulations pertaining to the following:
- Drug or alcohol testing
- Hours of service rules (HOS) (anti-fatigue regulations)
- Standards for inspecting big-rigs and performing maintenance
- Pre-hiring background checks and screening of new drivers
- Requirements for medical fitness
Our New Jersey trucking accident attorneys take immediate action to investigate the scene of the accident, obtain access to the big-rig for accident reconstruction analysis, take steps to ensure the preservation of information from the black box data recorder, and engage in gathering other evidence. We frequently identify non-compliance with safety regulations that contribute to trucking accidents.
New Jersey Medical Malpractice & Negligence Claims
When patients entrust their medical care to health care professionals, they expect that doctors, nurses, surgeons, hospitals, medical clinics, urgent care centers, and other providers will exercise the appropriate standard of medical care. Misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, or substandard treatment that departs from accepted medical standards can create a legal basis for pursuing a medical malpractice claim. Our New Jersey medical negligence lawyers represent individual injured by many acts of malpractice that include the following:
- Misdiagnosis (Cancer, Heart Attack, Stroke, etc.)
- Child Birth Injuries (Cerebral Palsy, Erb’s Palsy, etc.)
- Surgical Errors
- Medication Errors
- Anesthesia Mistakes
- Delayed Diagnosis
- Improper Treatment Protocols
Our New Jersey medical malpractice attorneys work with highly regarded board certified medical experts. Our clients benefit from our reputation for obtaining over a billion dollars in trials and settlements for our clients because medical malpractice carriers often are prepared to take cases to trial. We work diligently to hold medical professionals who harm patients with inadequate care accountable for the injuries or loss of life they cause.
Nursing Home Abuse & Negligence in New Jersey
While no one wants to believe that a nursing home or other long-term care facility will cause significant injury to their loved one, nursing home abuse and neglect impacts many residents of long-term care facilities for the elderly. Mistreatment of nursing home residents is particularly insidious because of age-related limitations the elderly might possess can impede their ability to report the abuse or neglect.
The Administration on Aging (AOA) received 257,872 complaints regarding staffing, quality of care, levels, facilities conditions, resident rights, and quality or life during a one year period. This volume of complaints amounts to an average of twenty complaints per nursing home in the U.S.
Our New Jersey nursing home abuse and neglect lawyers represent elderly victims of abuse by staff members, neglect of residents’ needs, and substandard facilities. Our law firm uses the discovery process to obtain facility records, interview witnesses, obtain reports of violations, and otherwise investigate to prove our client was the victim of neglect or abuse.
