Why Not Just Deal With
the Insurance Company Myself?
New Jersey personal injury law is incredibly complicated, and without the help of a personal injury attorney, you may be settling for less than you deserve.
It is important to keep in mind that when dealing with an insurance company, they are interested in protecting their profits. It is in the insurance company's best interests to pay as little as possible to settle your case.
When you choose a personal injury lawyer at Dunne, Dunne & Cohen, LLC, we not only deal with the insurance company so that you don't have to but we will also not settle for a dime less than you deserve.
Featured Personal Injury Services
Property owners have a legal obligation to provide a safe environment for anyone visiting their premises. Uneven or slippery surfaces, poor lighting, or any other hazardous conditions can lead to an injury resulting in a premises liability case. These are more commonly known as slip and fall cases. If you have been injured by dangerous conditions when visiting someone's property, our personal injury lawyers can prove that your injury was a direct result of a condition that the property owner knew about or should have known about.
A dog bite can lead to more than just permanent physical damage, such as scarring and disfigurement. The emotional trauma following a dog attack can cause severe anxiety for a victim any time a dog is present. New Jersey has specific laws regarding dog bite victims and can protect you whether you were on private property owned by the dog's owner or lawfully in a public area. If you have been bitten, our lawyers can hold the owner accountable for their dog's actions.
If you have been injured on the job, you might be unsure about how to proceed so that you don't put your livelihood in jeopardy. If you have been injured while on the job, you are legally entitled to medical treatment, rehabilitative care, and compensation for lost wages. Our workplace injury attorneys will ensure your rights are protected and that you can fully recover — regardless of whether you are physically able to return to work.
Working in construction is inherently dangerous, and accidents on the work site often result in severe injuries. An accident involving hazardous materials and heavy equipment found on a construction job site may even lead to the wrongful death of a loved one. If you or a family member was injured while working on a construction site, our personal injury lawyers can investigate the cause of the accident, defend your workers' compensation claim, and pursue a lawsuit to protect your rights and secure just compensation.
4 Questions to Ask Yourself to Decide If You Have a Personal Injury Case
Was Someone Else at Fault for Your Injuries?
To seek damages for a personal injury, you must be able to prove that your injury was the result of negligence by another party. The negligent party could include a person or even a manufacturer of a defective part.
Did Anyone Witness Your Accident?
While it is not essential that you have a witness, a statement from someone who saw what happened can help you successfully pursue a personal injury claim. You will need to produce evidence other than your own version of events to prove your case with or without a witness.
Are Your Injuries Serious?
Personal injury claims are complex. If you are seeking only a few hundred dollars in damages, then your claim may not be worth the time, effort, and money it takes to pursue the case.
How Much Time Has Passed?
In most New Jersey personal injury cases, you have two years to file a case before you lose your right to seek damages. However, there are significant differences in the statute of limitations depending on the type of personal injury case you file. It's important to talk to a knowledgeable attorney to understand how the rules affect your case.
