How We Stand Up for Your Rights
When do you bring a claim against a negligent party after you have been involved in a serious accident? You should file a claim if these three things are present:
- You have received especially severe injuries
- You are faced with extensive medical bills following your accident
- You have had to take significant time away from your job due to your injury
Here are some of the most common cases that we see at our firm:
Auto Accidents: In 2016, you would be surprised to find that there were well over 270,000 car accidents in just that year alone. Many of these accidents ended in injuries and some even ended in fatality for parties involved. Many accidents that happen on our roadways happen due to DUI, distracted driving, excessive speed, and more. If you have sustained injuries due to a party’s negligence, you might wonder how you can bring a claim. When it comes to your car accident case, we want to help you prove that a driver did not abide by the standard duty of care that is required of all drivers and that they caused your injuries through their actions. You might have a claim for compensation, so don’t delay.
Bicycle Accidents: Bicyclists are injured every year on our roadways when drivers are not looking out for their safety. The fact is, bicyclists are most susceptible to injuries on our roadways because they have fewer protections on our roadways than those in motor vehicles. Many of the accidents involving a bicycle and a motor vehicle take place when a cyclist is at an intersection or when they are crossing the street. Accidents can happen during the daytime, but they also occur at night when cyclists are not seen. Bicyclists are at a great risk for broken bones, head trauma, internal injuries, and more.
Bus Accidents: Bus accidents fall under ‘common carrier law,’ which is a type of transportation that takes you from one point to another. Common carriers are expected to exercise one of the greatest duties of care because they are entrusted with certain services. You might find that these cases are a big different than other cases because you might be naming more than one entity in your claim, such as liability through the bus company and the driver.
Commercial Vehicle Accidents: Commercial vehicles take goods from one place to another, which helps our businesses grow across the entire state of New Jersey. Many of these vehicles include things like flatbed trucks, passenger vans, ice cream trucks, and more. Even though these drivers go through specific training before they are permitted to drive on our roads, accidents still continue to happen every year. We want to help when it comes to your commercial vehicle case, as these cases might become complicated. You might have to make a distinction between an independent contractor and an actual employee of the company and how you can move forward with a claim against a negligent party.
DUI Accidents: DUI accidents tend to cause catastrophic injuries because those who drive drunk will not have the same perception on the roadways and might be speeding at the time. This puts you at risk of a head-on collision or being knocked from the roadway. You might enter the realm of both a civil and criminal suit when it comes to your DUI accident, as well as suffering extensive injuries you never expected. We want to help.
Pedestrian Accidents: Pedestrians are owed the highest duty of care on our roadways, as they have the least amount of protection than anybody on our roads. Drivers must give a right of way to those who utilize our dangerous roadways on foot. This means always stay conscious of those who might be walking, especially children and the elderly. If you have been injured in a horrific pedestrian accident by a driver who was not looking out for your safety, you might have a case.
Truck Accidents: Trucks are some of the largest vehicles on our roadways, even though the drivers are also some of the safest. They have months to years of training and many regulations that keep things under control so that drivers are not driving drunk, drowsy, or untrained. However, this does not mean that you will never be involved in a truck accident. Even though regulations are in place to prevent these accidents, they still take place every year. We want to stand by your side, so give us a call.
Wrongful Death Claims: Wrongful death claims are sometimes brought by the family members of those who lose their lives in accidents. You might be going through a difficult time and grieving if you have had to say goodbye too soon to somebody who died due to a vehicular accident. Because of this, we want to help bring your claim for the damages you and your loved ones deserve.
In New Jersey, we handle a variety of other cases as well, from ridesharing to motorcycle accidents and more. If you have received injuries on our roadways due to the negligence of another party, you might have a claim. You are not alone when it comes to your New Jersey accident case. Call us today.
