We Successfully Handle a Diverse Range of Personal Injury Cases in Hudson County, NJ
We have successfully helped clients recover compensation based on personal injury claims involving:
- Motor vehicle accidents. A motor vehicle accident can be as straightforward as a two-party rear-end collision or as complex as a multi-vehicle pileup where the cause of the accident is less than clear. Motor vehicle accident cases can involve motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents and even truck accidents. Regardless of the complexity of your specific case, our skilled personal injury lawyers will locate and analyze all necessary evidence to build and support your claim for compensation.
- Premises liability. A premises liability personal injury case can arise from a variety of different types of accidents where you sustained injuries because of a hazard on another person’s property. Whether you were injured in a slip and fall accident on an icy sidewalk or because a business negligently failed to provide adequate security to prevent an injury, we can fight to hold the property owner accountable.
- Construction accidents. Although the prevalence of construction sites in Kearny and elsewhere in New Jersey represent a growing economy, they also present hazards in the form of heavy machinery, scaffolding and even the potential for electrocution. Our team can help with your workers’ compensation claim, and we will investigate to determine whether a separate personal injury lawsuit against a third-party defendant may be viable.
- Medical malpractice. Cases involving medical negligence are often difficult for someone without specific experience handling these cases because, in order to establish that a medical professional committed malpractice, we must also establish the relevant standard of care—which varies based upon a number of circumstances. Our Kearny personal injury firm has the resources necessary to employ the best possible medical professionals to get results for you.
- Defective Products. When you purchase or use a product, you have the right to assume that the product is reasonably safe for its intended use. Defective products cases can arise in situations involving car seats or children’s toys, but can also present viable claims when a component in a larger machine, such as a car or piece of construction equipment, causes an accident.

Kearny earned its nickname, “Soccer Town, U.S.A.” after thousands of Irish and Scottish immigrants settled in Kearny and brought the game to the United States.

Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Claims in Kearny
FAQ: How might my right to compensation be impacted my personal injury claim involves a car accident in Kearny?
Car accident cases are different than other types of personal injury because of New Jersey’s no-fault insurance law. In these cases, you first recover compensation from your own car insurance policy. If your injuries surpass what is known as a “serious injury threshold”, you may then take steps to recover compensation from the at-fault party and his or her insurance company—whether in the form of damages for pain and suffering or to compensate for other economic damages. Death, loss of limbs, broken or fractured bones, substantial scarring or disfigurement, loss of an unborn child and injures that are reasonably anticipated to be permanent all qualify.
FAQ: What is negligence and why is it relevant in a personal injury case?
Most personal injury cases are based on the fact that someone else’s negligence caused your injury, so that negligent party should be responsible for compensating you for the harm caused. Negligence is essentially carelessness. To prove negligence, you must show that another party owed you a duty of care (generally, a duty to act reasonably to prevent harm to others), breached that duty by acting carelessly, caused your injuries and that you suffered harm as a result.
