At The Grossman Law Firm, our Mercer County personal injury lawyers are dedicated to pursuing rightful compensation for our clients who sustained injuries due to another party’s negligence or carelessness. We work hard to ensure that our clients receive the quality representation and personal attention they deserve. While injured clients recover from their injuries, we will take care of all legal matters by dealing with the authorities, insurance companies, and medical professionals to ensure that all aspects of their case are considered.
A car accident can change the victim’s life in an instant. Car accidents may involve serious injuries that result in mounting medical bills, physical and emotional suffering, lost wages, and temporary or permanent disability. When people are injured in a car accident due to the negligence of another driver, they may recover damages from the driver at fault.
Motorcyclists are in a unique position on the road. Riders enjoy the freedom that comes with motorcycling in an open road, but they are also more exposed to road dangers than car or truck drivers. Due to lack of protection during crashes or collisions, riders can easily sustain catastrophic and fatal injuries.
The prevalence of massive big rigs on Mercer County roads means dangers for smaller vehicles. Commercial trucks weigh up to 80,000 pounds and have limited ability to maneuver or stop when faced with potential road dangers. The design of trucks also makes it difficult for truckers to see other vehicles around them. When a truck accident occurs, it can be extremely devastating.
Pedestrians are the most vulnerable travelers on the roads of Mercer County, New Jersey. Unlike drivers, pedestrians don’t have safety restraints and reinforced steel cages to protect them during impacts. When vehicles hit them, they can be badly hurt or killed.
The law requires property owners to keep their premises free from any dangerous conditions that can cause injuries to those lawfully on their property. Property owners can be held legally liable for the victims’ injuries that they could have reasonably prevented.
Animal Attacks/Dog Bites
New Jersey has a strict liability statute regarding dog bites. However, the same statute also protects dog owners by not holding them liable for injuries sustained by individuals who are not lawfully on their premises. Unfortunately, many dog owners deny liability by claiming that the individual bitten by their dog was not lawfully on their property, even when the victim was actually lawfully on their property.
Injuries caused by accidents can affect the victims’ lives in so many ways. Slight injuries cause unnecessary inconvenience while severe injuries can affect many aspects of the victims’ lives. Placing a price for financial losses may be straightforward, but putting a value for non-economic losses can be complex.
Losing a loved one is one of the most painful experiences for the victim’s surviving family members. The New Jersey Wrongful Death Act allows survivors to recover compensation only for their financial and pecuniary losses. Since emotional distress, grief, sorrow, and loss of companionship are not considered financial losses, they are generally not recoverable in a wrongful death lawsuit.
