New Jersey Personal Injury Attorneys

Personal Injury AttorneyNearly 3 million people are injured in car accidents every year in the United States. These collisions result in nearly 90 fatalities per day. But car accidents are just one of the many ways that people can become seriously injured or killed.

The vast majority of serious injury and fatal accidents can be prevented when the right safety protocols are implemented and followed.

Practice Areas In Personal Injury Law

Driving is by far the most dangerous activity that most people engage in on a day to day basis. The United States Department of Transportation estimates that the average person drives 14,263 miles per year. Speeding, driver intoxication, and reckless driving are by far the leading causes of motor vehicle accidents. When a driver acts negligently and seriously injures someone in New Jersey, they can be held accountable through a personal injury claim. Shortly after an accident is the best time to hire a New Jersey personal injury attorney. There are many other practice areas in personal injury law in addition to car accidents.

  • Dog Bite Injuries: Nearly 4.4 million people in the United States are injured in dog bites every year. Around 885,000 of those injuries require hospitalization. When a dog owner is aware of their dog’s vicious nature and it attacks someone, the owner could be liable for damages.
  • Construction Accidents: Construction workers in New York are protected by a number of laws including New York State Labor Law § 240New York Labor Law 200, and New York Labor Law 241(6).Generally speaking, employers are liable for all gravity related accidents. This includes situations when a worker falls or is struck by a falling object.
  • Medical Malpractice: An estimated 225,000 people die every year in the United States due to some form of medical malpractice. Doctors and nurses are people like everyone else and they can make mistakes.
  • Wrongful Death: The family of any victim who dies due to the negligence of another person or entity may have recourse through N.Y. Est. Powers & Trusts Law § 5-4.1 (2021).
  • Premises Liability: Property owners have a legal responsibility to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition. When a property owner is aware of a dangerous condition on their property, they must take steps to correct the dangerous condition.
  • Product Liability: Companies must create products that are reasonably safe. A company could be liable for design defects, manufacturing defects, and marketing defects. For example, a number of car accidents are due to defective tires that experience catastrophic tread separations.
  • Bus Accidents: Buses are common carriers and are held to a high standard in terms of safety. If a bus driver is negligent, their employer could potentially be liable. Buses tend to have large blind spots which can obscure the presence of smaller vehicles and pedestrians.
  • Truck Accidents: Nearly 4,000 people are killed every year in truck accidents. There are hundreds of potential factors that could contribute to a commercial truck accident. Due to their heavy weight, even a low impact truck accident can leave victims with catastrophic injuries.
  • Bicycle Accidents: The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that nearly 1,000 bicyclists are killed in accidents every year. If a bicyclist hits a pothole, the city responsible for the road in question could be liable for the accident.
  • Pedestrian Accidents: Any pedestrian that is injured in a collision may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. Pedestrians tend to suffer very serious injuries because they lack the protection of enclosed vehicles.

It is absolutely critical that evidence is properly preserved after an accident. This is what will ultimately be used to establish fault. But demonstrating fault isn’t always necessary to receive compensation after an accident. New Jersey has a no-fault insurance law for motor vehicle collisions. Any person that is injured in an accident may be entitled to compensation regardless of fault. That victim may also be able to pursue a negligence claim if they sustained severe or permanent injuries.

Why You Should Consider Hiring A Personal Injury Attorney

It can be difficult to know where to begin if you’ve been seriously injured in an accident. The first thing that you should do is to document what you can. This includes getting contact information from all witnesses. Victims should then make sure that they start receiving medical care. Failing to receive medical care could potentially impact your ability to successfully resolve your case down the road. After that, any person that is injured should seriously consider hiring a personal injury attorney to represent them. There are many advantages to hiring a personal injury attorney.

  • Upfront Evaluation: A personal injury attorney can let you know if you have a case that can be pursued. Our attorneys at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. have decades of experience and can let you know if your claim is likely to succeed.
  • Financial Protection: It doesn’t cost anything to hire a personal injury attorney. They will cover all costs associated with pursuing your case. There is simply no need to spend your own money and time pursuing a case on your own. An attorney can shoulder that burden for you and protect your finances in the process.
  • Legal Power: Insurance companies and corporations will typically do everything in their power to stonewall victims. They will only release information if they are legally required. An attorney can subpoena records and investigate your case thoroughly.
  • Medical Care: Getting the medical care that you need after an accident can be difficult and confusing. An attorney can work on your behalf so that you can get all the care you need. They can also hire medical experts to testify on your behalf if the case goes to trial.
  • Maximizing Compensation: When a person has been seriously injured in an accident, it’s not uncommon for insurance companies to offer victims a relatively small settlement. It is almost never a good idea to accept the first offer you are given. An attorney can help ensure that you are treated fairly and that you get the most you possibly can after any accident.

Hiring an experienced attorney can help give you the peace of mind that you are looking for after an accident. Our attorneys are committed to helping accident victims get the medical and financial compensation that they need to recover. They understand how aggressive and unconcerned insurance companies can be after someone has been injured. They will do everything in their power to make sure that you get the fair and just compensation that you are entitled to under the law.
