After a Roselle and Roselle Park accident, allow a skilled personal injury attorney defend your right to a fair compensation.


Following an accident in Roselle and Roselle Park, New Jersey, many victims may find that obtaining compensation for their grievances is not easy. Although the state provides victims of careless accidents the opportunity to file a claim against the party that caused the accident, most victims will face difficult challenges throughout the claim process. One of the most difficult challenges to overcome is at-fault party rebuttals. When the at-fault party is aggressively denying responsibility for the accident, obtaining strong evidence that demonstrates the contrary is an absolute necessity. The collection of evidence may be difficult to obtain, especially when the accident has caused debilitating injuries. If you were injured in an accident, obtain the professional legal support of a proficient personal injury law firm.

Proving Negligence in Personal Injury Accidents

In the onset of an accident that caused serious injuries, most victims will attempt to seek restitution from the party that caused the accident. Obtaining compensation after an accident, however, is only possible if the victim can demonstrate the at-fault party’s negligence at the time of the accident. In order to achieve this, the victim will need to satisfy the burden of proof that the accused party breached his or her legal obligation to provide the victim a duty of care, and that the breach in this duty ultimately led to his or her injuries.

Our lawyers will also represent you in civil litigation cases such as Work Compensation, Medical Malpractice and much more.

A party’s duty of care can be either implied or expressed. Regardless, the injured accident victim will need to demonstrate that the duty of care existed. Depending on the type of accident, the at-fault party’s duty of care will be different. The following are common examples:

Premises Liability Claims - Property owners in New Jersey have a legal obligation to ensure their property is relatively safe from dangers that can lead to accidents. When an accident transpires as a result of a dangerous condition, which leads to a person’s injury, the property owner can be held accountable. Common examples of negligence in premises liability claims can include: Recently mopped or waxed floors that have no proper warning, Stairwells that have begun to show signs of deterioration for many years, Parking lot lighting that has not been properly working for months, and overgrown shrubbery that has caused an obstructed walkway.

Auto Accident Cases - As perhaps one of the most common types of personal injury cases, negligence in auto accident cases is usually easily determined. Drivers in New Jersey have a legal duty to drive carefully and abide by traffic laws. When these legal duties are disregarded and a traffic accident ensues, the negligent driver can be held accountable for the damages caused to others. Common examples of driver negligence include, but are not limited to: Driving while intoxicated, Driving while sleep deprived, Speeding, Driving erratically given weather or road conditions, Distracted driving, or Aggressive driving, commonly referred to as “road rage”.

Defective Product Cases - In some cases, a victim’s injury is caused as a result of a defective product. When a product is manufactured improperly or has a defective design, the injured victim can seek monetary reparations from the company that produced the defective product. Defective products can include, but are not limited to: Tires, Airbags, such as the Takata airbags, Infant cribs and carriers, and/or electric devices.

Proving a Breach in the Duty of Care - Once it has been established that the other party owed the victim a duty of care, the injured victim will need to demonstrate how the breach in duty led to his or her injuries. Depending on the case, this can be demonstrated with the support of the following: A medical evaluation, A medical report, Incident reports, Expert witness testimony, Eyewitness testimony, Video surveillance, Pictures of the scene, Pictures of the injuries and property damage, Chemical test results, and police reports.

Available Damages in a Personal Injury Case - When all required elements have been established, the accident victim can obtain financial restitution for the trauma experienced. This will provide the victim the opportunity to obtain necessary medical treatments and achieve a healthy recovery. It can also afford the victim extra incurred costs caused by the accident. Recoverable damages may include: Medical expenses, Loss of income, Loss of employment benefits, The need for future medical treatments, Court fees, Pain and suffering, Loss of enjoyment of life, and/or emotional trauma.
