Our firm represents victims of serious and sometimes fatal motor vehicle accidents. If the driver of a car, bus or truck is negligent in the operation of his or her vehicle and that negligence causes injury or death he or she may be held liable for the damages caused. If the negligent driver was in the course of his or her employment, the employer may also be liable for the damage caused.
If you or a loved one is involved in a motor vehicle accident, you should immediately consult an attorney. Some benefits are available to injured victims without proving fault – commonly referred to as no-fault benefits or PIP benefits. If the victim was in the course of his or her employment, workers’ compensations benefits may be available. There are filing requirements and deadlines associated with some of these benefits making prompt consultation with an attorney beneficial.
Early consultation with an attorney will also ensure that all relevant evidence is preserved such as photographic and video depictions of the accident location and vehicles involved. Early investigation also includes eyewitness statements and canvassing the area of the accident for surveillance video cameras that may have captured the accident on video.
We have over 25 years of experience in representing victims of motor vehicle accidents in both New York and New Jersey. We have successfully prosecuted cases on behalf of our clients who were injured in truck accidents, car accidents, bus accidents, motorcycle accidents and bicycle accidents. We handle the cases from beginning to end, meaning that we do hands on early investigation, are involved in all aspects of the litigation and, if necessary, will bring the case to trial if there is no fair and reasonable offer of settlement.
