Personal Injury

Personal injury law refers to cases where someone has suffered an injury, often due to the negligence or misconduct of a third party. Personal injury cases can include car accidents, slip and falls, construction and workplace accidents, medical malpractice, wrongful death, dog bites, and more. An important consideration of personal injury law is proving liability in the at-fault party in order to seek compensation for your losses.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is a specific type of personal injury case where an injury occurs due to the negligence or misconduct of a doctor or medical professional. Medical professionals must uphold a certain standard of care for their patient, and when a failure to uphold this standard results in an injury for the patient, they have the right to seek compensation. Common examples of medical malpractice are misdiagnoses, errors in prescription of medication, surgical errors, and failures to provide adequate care or aftercare of a patient.

Wrongful Termination

If you have been wrongfully terminated or have faced harassment, discrimination, or misconduct at work, our attorneys can assist you. Worker rights to fair treatment and pay are heavily protected. In a case where they are violated, our attorneys will fight hard to procure justice for our clients.

Planning for the future of your family is an important consideration for anyone. Enlisting the assistance of an experienced and knowledgeable attorney is crucial in ensuring that all legal requirements are followed and that you are taking the best possible path forward for you and your family. Our estate planning services include assistance with wills, trusts, probate, tax strategies, power of attorney, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions

Compensation in a personal injury case varies from case to case based on the unique details of your accident and injuries. Typically, compensation includes payment for losses such as medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering. Other losses specific to your accident and injuries may be recovered in a personal injury settlement or lawsuit. New Jersey practices a system known as comparative negligence, meaning that if the plaintiff is found to be more than 50% responsible for the accident, they cannot recover damages. Our attorneys will fight to prove the true source of negligence in your case and procure the maximum amount of compensation you deserve.

Our attorneys are experienced in proving fault in car accidents and building cases that seek to recover the full and fair amount of compensation our clients are owed. In a car accident, the person whose negligence or misconduct directly or indirectly caused the accident is identified as the at-fault party. If a driver involved in the accident is driving recklessly, driving under the influence, or violates a traffic law, they are likely at fault for the accident. We will investigate your accident and gather evidence like photographs and videos, eyewitness testimony, and police reports. Our attorneys will work tirelessly to prove who the at-fault party is and establish that they are liable for your injuries and losses.

In a New Jersey divorce case, child custody is decided by a negotiated agreement between the parents of the children or in a decision made by the judge. As it is often in the best interest of the children and the parents, a custody agreement is usually arranged between the parents themselves. It is important to consider an arrangement that is beneficial not only to you and your ex-partner but most importantly to the well-being of the children. Our attorneys understand how difficult a divorce case can be on a family, and we strive to offer legal counsel that will result in the best possible outcome for all parties. We know that your children are an invaluable part of your life, and we will work hard to ensure that they remain a significant part of it, even in the aftermath of divorce.

An experienced real estate attorney can be an invaluable aid in assisting with a residential real estate closing. In New Jersey, you are not required by law to have an attorney for a residential real estate closing, but there are many reasons why retaining an attorney is still the smart choice. If a legal problem arises in the process of closing on the property, it is often too late to retain an attorney. Hiring an attorney from the beginning of the process allows the attorney to counsel you every step of the way, ensuring that all documents are in order and offer informed legal aid and representation. Our real estate attorneys are dedicated to assisting you throughout your real estate transaction and working hard to make the process as quick and painless for you as possible.

Our estate planning attorneys are well-versed in creating, maintaining, and updating wills. Ensuring that your will is written and executed exactly as you have planned is crucial for ensuring that your future and the future of your family is prepared for according to your wishes. Our attorneys can assist you with making decisions on which aspects of estate planning make sense for your family. From drafting a will, to creating a living trust, to setting up power of attorney. Our compassionate attorneys understand this can be a difficult topic to discuss, but can provide a great deal of peace of mind once completed.
