Our New Jersey Personal Injury Practice Areas

Our New Jersey personal injury attorneys handle a wide variety of case types in which someone’s carelessness or recklessness leads to injuries. Some of the more common cases we handle include:

There were 48,962 motor vehicle crashes resulting in injuries and 667 fatal crashes in New Jersey. Over 14,000 injury crashes occurred in Essex, Bergen, and Union counties alone. Our Newark car accident lawyers have decades of combined experience helping car accident victims like you and your family.

Property damage and injuries from truck accidents can be severe because of the size and weight of these commercial vehicles. Truck drivers are under a lot of pressure to make their deliveries on time, sometimes resulting in fatigue, speeding, and aggressive driving.

Our New Jersey personal injury lawyers will investigate your accident, determine liability, and fight for compensation from the driver, trucking company, and others responsible for your injuries.

People on motorcycles are much less safe on the road compared to passengers in enclosed vehicles, and motorcycle accidents often result in severe injuries and death. The number of fatalities in motorcycle accidents in New Jersey rose from 86 in 2017 to 100 in 2021. 

Medical malpractice can result in severe injuries or death when doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists, and others fail to provide the proper level of care. Our Newark medical malpractice lawyers have the legal skills and resources to handle these complex cases and take on insurance companies eager to avoid compensating victims.

In 2020, New Jersey private employers reported 75,800 nonfatal workplace injuries, with 54,200 resulting in missed work days, transfers, or work restrictions. State and local government employees accounted for 16,600 additional workplace injuries and illnesses. A Newark workers’ compensation attorney can help you file for compensation, prepare you for hearings, and argue during appeals if your claim is denied.

People get hurt when property owners, management companies, and others fail to maintain their premises properly. The most common premises liability claims are slips and falls resulting from things like loose carpeting, uneven floors, poorly maintained sidewalks, failure to remove ice from walkways, and other hazards. 

Our Newark personal injury lawyers can help you determine who was responsible for maintaining the property where your accident occurred and pursue compensation in settlement negotiations or court.
