Personal Injury

Assertive Advocacy When You Are Hurt

If you are one of the millions of people who are injured each year in an accident that is caused by someone else, you should not hesitate to discuss your legal rights with a highly skilled personal injury attorney at Salomon & Aquino, LLC. At our New Jersey law firm, we advocate for the rights of individuals who are injured in a variety of incidents and who may not receive fair treatment from insurance companies.

Know Your Rights After A Car Accident

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that more than 2 million people sustain injuries annually in U.S. traffic-related collisions. Auto accidents can result in severe injuries that can require extensive and costly treatment, and may even cause permanent disabilities. If you have suffered injuries in any type of auto accident, it is always wise to hire a car accident lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your rights to financial recovery.

Many car accidents are caused by someone else’s negligence, which gives any innocent victim the right to recover medical bills, lost wages and other damages. Some examples of negligence that can lead to collisions include:

  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Aggressive driving
  • Breaking traffic laws
  • Running traffic signals
  • Poor vehicle maintenance
  • Defective car parts
  • Dangerous roads

While you may know that you need a lawyer after a car accident, it can be difficult to know which law firm to call. Our New Jersey car accident attorney has helped many people maximize the compensation they recover following an accident involving cars, trucks, bicycles, pedestrians and more. We will evaluate whether another person caused your accident and will seek the recovery you deserve.

Standing Tall For Victims Of Falls

Serious injuries can happen in many different ways aside from vehicle-related accidents. Injuries commonly occur when someone slips or trips and falls down at a business or on someone else’s property. Although slip and falls often result in simple bumps or bruises, such falls have the potential to cause serious injuries. In fact, according to the National Safety Council (NSC), nearly 9 million people seek emergency treatment for injuries suffered in slips, trips and falls every year in the U.S. If you have been injured in such an accident, you should work with our slip-and-fall lawyers to discuss your legal rights and options.

Slip-and-fall accidents can happen out of sheer clumsiness, however, many falls happen because of a dangerous condition on the premises. Business owners and property owners can be held liable for your slip-and-fall injuries if they were negligent. Some examples of negligence in these cases include the following and more:

  • Wetness on the floor
  • Debris or objects in pathways or walkways
  • Electrical cords across walkways
  • Rugs that are worn or frayed or that slip
  • Overly worn flooring materials
  • Failing to warn of possible dangerous conditions

If you believe a negligent property owner caused your injuries, retain a personal injury lawyer for a slip-and-fall case as soon as possible.

Find A Premises Liability Lawyer

In addition to slips, trips and falls, different injuries can happen due to dangerous conditions on another’s premises. Property owners have the duty to keep their premises reasonably safe for visitors or customers and improper inspection, maintenance or warnings can lead to accidents and injuries. If you are injured on someone else’s property, you should find a premises liability lawyer who fully understands the laws in New Jersey.

The following are only some of the accidents that can happen due to unsafe property conditions:

  • Falls from heights or down stairs
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Amusement park accidents
  • Hotel or resort accidents
  • Accidents due to falling objects
  • Accidents in gyms or exercise facilities
  • Playground accidents
  • Attacks by animals or pets

You may wonder what a lawyer can do for your premises liability case. The answer depends on the circumstances of your situation. Our skilled legal team can help evaluate your case, negotiate with property insurance companies and represent your right in court if needed to obtain the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
