Motor Vehicle Accidents
Were you injured in a car wreck? New Jersey motor vehicle accidents result in almost 60,000 injuries and roughly 600 fatalities each year in the Garden State. Many of these accidents are caused by large commercial vehicles like tractor-trailers, flatbeds, big rigs, and other box trucks. Motorcyclists are also particularly susceptible to serious injury, especially on highways such as the Garden State Parkway, I-95/I-295, NJ Turnpike, US Route 9, and County Routes 528, 530, and 532, to name a few.
Not only are motor vehicle accidents a perpetual problem, but motorcycle crashes and pedestrian knockdowns are particularly dangerous and deadly. Anytime a motorist or pedestrian is injured in an NJ auto accident, ask how our experienced personal injury lawyers at Nugent Law can help you.
Slip, Trip, and Fall Cases
A slip and fall or trip and fall on the property of another person, business, or government entity are known as a premises liability matter. These are cases related to the use of land by another. New Jersey law requires all landowners, tenants, or possessors in control of the property to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition free of defects that could cause foreseeable harm to another. A person who is hurt in a slip, trip, and fall could be entitled to compensation under New Jersey law for their lost wages, medical bills, and their pain and suffering.
Dog Bite and Animal Attack Cases
New Jersey law makes dog owners “strictly liable” for a bite or animal attack, regardless of whether the owner knew that the dog could bite. Strict liability means if the bite occurs, liability ensues. New Jersey’s jury instructions read by the court to a jury for a dog bite case make it clear that as long as the victim was lawfully on the owner’s property or in a public place, the dog owner will be liable.
Unfortunately, some homeowner’s insurance companies disagree with this straightforward reading of the law and often fight back against valid claims. Do not let this happen to you. Get the right law firm right now to protect your rights. Call Nugent Law.
Medical Malpractice and Birth Injuries
While we trust our healthcare providers to heal us and render proper medical care, unfortunately, occasionally physicians, nurses, hospitals, and other providers can fail to uphold their end of the promise. In fact, according to a study by Johns Hopkins Medicine, preventable medical errors are the third-leading cause of death in the United States, behind only heart disease and cancer. Many of these preventable medical errors are to innocent people, including children. Some of the most common forms of medical malpractice include the following:
- Birth injuries
- Surgical errors
- Anesthesia mistakes
- Failure to diagnose or a delay in diagnosing
- Delay in emergency department treatment
- Hospital falls
- Nursing home abuse, neglect, and malpractice
- Wrong patient or wrong site surgery, and
- Many other common forms of medical malpractice that our NJ injury lawyers can handle for you.
