Personal injury in Bergen County and northern New Jersey
Clients throughout northern New Jersey rely on our law firm to obtain the compensation they need in all types of serious, permanent personal injury cases. We handle a broad range of claims, including:
Auto accidents — With insurance companies paying out less money on claims than ever before, it can seem impossible to obtain a just settlement after an auto accident. Our lawyers use our professional reputation, skills and determination to help you negotiate with auto insurers to get a fair result. When necessary, we provide strong representation in lawsuits against insurers and negligent parties.
Truck accidents — Because of the enormous size and weight of large commercial trucks, such as semi-trucks, big rigs and 18-wheelers, accidents involving trucks frequently result in catastrophic injuries and fatalities. Our compassionate attorneys guide you through a serious truck accident claim to obtain compensation for life-changing injuries or the loss of a loved one.
Motorcycle accidents — When a driver is negligent or reckless and hits a motorcycle, it can cause life-threatening injuries to the relatively unprotected rider. Our lawyer’s help victims recover for motorcycle accidents, even when you are partly at fault — as long as you are less at fault than the other party.
Dog bites — Dog bites and animal attacks often cause permanent, disfiguring injuries and severe emotional distress. We help you recover for these traumatic injuries by holding dog owners strictly liable for injuries their animals cause.
Workers’ compensation — From construction sites to offices, employers must provide a safe workplace, but workplace accidents and injuries occur even when an employer is not negligent. We help you file workers’ comp claims to recover benefits for the harm you’ve endured.
Products liability — Manufacturers have a duty to ensure their products are free from design and manufacturing defects and have proper labels, instructions and warnings. If a defective product causes you serious injuries, our products liability lawyers have the skills and experience to hold the manufacturer responsible.
Back and spinal injuries — Back and spinal injuries can leave you with long-term harm, ranging from a painful herniated disc to paralysis. With decades of legal experience dealing with all types of catastrophic injuries, we help you obtain compensation for both the immediate and long-term effects of your injuries.
Head injuries — Head injuries may result in serious traumatic brain injury and are often caused by slip and fall accidents and motor vehicle crashes. We have a network of doctors to help you obtain the treatment you need and are dedicated to obtaining the fair compensation you deserve.
What should you do when you are injured and it is someone else’s fault?
When you have been injured by someone else’s carelessness, you should take some initial steps toward making sure your injury claim can be settled fairly and as quickly as possible, such as:
Write down everything you can remember about how the injury occurred, including the names, addresses and phone numbers of potential witnesses, police officers and insurance company representatives. For work injuries, write down the names of company or workers’ compensation representatives.
Call a dependable, experienced lawyer before making any statements — written or verbal — to insurance company adjusters or representatives.
Take steps to protect any evidence you may need to prove your injury, such as your totaled car, photographs of an accident or injury scene, clothing you were wearing and damaged personal belongings.
