Negligent people need to be held accountable for the injuries they cause. If you’ve been hurt due to someone else’s negligence, you may be confused and angry and not certain how to proceed when it comes to navigating the complicated legal system in Pennsylvania or New Jersey.

You do deserve to be compensated for your injuries, medical bills and lost wages. However, you don’t need to go through this alone. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you rebuild your life and ensure that wrongdoers do not escape liability.

The team of seasoned lawyers at the Law Firm of Craig A. Altman have handled countless personal injury cases. Our attorneys have decades of experience fighting to win compensation for injured parties in PA & NJ courtrooms, and we’re prepared to fight for you.

You Need Help If You’ve Suffered a Personal Injury in New Jersey

Unfortunately, there is no shortage of ways to get hurt. However, we have experience handling a wide variety personal injury lawsuits including:

Vehicle Accidents – The major types of vehicle accidents include car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents. Regardless of the type of vehicle involved, anytime a person gets behind the wheel there is a chance for a serious accident. In fact, reckless driving is one of the main causes of severe personal injuries, including permanent disability and paralysis. Motor vehicle accidents are also frequently caused by overly aggressive driving, distracted driving (such as texting), fatigued drivers, and driving while intoxicated (DWI).

Public Transportation Accidents – SEPTA accidents occur at an alarming rate in Philadelphia, PA and surrounding areas. Other forms of public transportation that can result in serious accidents and personal injuries include taxis, commuter trains, subways, railways, and shuttle vans.

Slip & Fall Accidents – Property owners have a legal obligation to safely maintain their property and warn visitors about hazardous conditions on the premises. Slip-and-fall accidents can be caused by negligent property owners who fail to do anything about snow and ice on walkways, cracked sidewalks, and poor lighting in stairwells. In retail stores, such as a pharmacy, for example, a spill can cause someone to slip and get seriously hurt.

Construction Accidents – Workers’ compensation is generally available for construction workers who suffer catastrophic injuries resulting from a construction site accident. Depending on the circumstances, a third party contractor or equipment manufacturer may also be liable for construction accident injuries.

Medical Malpractice – Negligent medical care or misdiagnosis can exacerbate existing medical conditions and cause new injuries and illnesses.

Product Liability – An injured worker may have a claim against the manufacturer of a defective product.

When You’ve Been Injured, We Will Help

If you’ve been injured due to someone else’s negligence, an experienced personal injury attorney at the Law Firm of Craig A. Altman will help you seek compensation for:

  • Medical bills – Hospital expenses can be overwhelming, particularly if your accident caused brain & spinal injuries.
  • Future medical treatments – Serious neck and back injuries may require years of exhaustive physical therapy.
  • Lost income – You could be entitled to income continuation.
  • Lost future wages – Some accidents can cause life-altering injuries and result in permanent diminished earning capacity.
  • Property damage – Depending on the severity of your accident, you might need to replace or repair your motor vehicle.
  • Pain and suffering – Sometimes the physical discomfort caused by an accident can be unbearable.
  • Emotional distress – The recovery process can be incredibly difficult and often leads to severe mental anguish.
  • Wrongful death – In the case of a wrongful death, family members and loved ones may be entitled to death benefits or survivor benefits.

Your attorney must exercise attention to detail in order to maximize your potential recovery. Our lawyers will interview all relevant parties and witnesses while the details of your accident are still fresh in their minds. We will preserve any relevant physical evidence in your case before it is lost or destroyed. We will put our experts to work carefully reconstructing your accident scene to determine exactly who was at fault for your injuries. We will review your medical records and arrange medical examinations if necessary to establish the severity of your injuries. If the case goes to trial, we know how to tell your story in a persuasive way so judges and juries understand who you are and where you’re coming from.

Timing Matters in Personal Injury Cases; You Need to Act Quickly to Preserve Your Legal Rights

The statute of limitations on personal injury cases in Pennsylvania and New Jersey is two years from the date of your injury. After this time has passed, you may be barred forever from bringing a claim. Additionally, your insurance company might require you to provide a statement within 30 days of the accident. Our attorneys will make sure all necessary documentation for your case in a timely fashion.

The Insurance Company is Not on Your Side; Do Not Sign Away Your Legal Rights

Never trust an insurance company to treat you fairly. Insurance company representatives work for the negligent party; they want to compensate you as little as possible. Consult with a lawyer before speaking with an insurance adjuster because insurance companies do everything they can to make the process of recovery extremely difficult. Our skilled personal injury attorneys will fight to get you a fair settlement.
