Our Practice Areas of Personal Injury Law in Lacey Township, NJ
Personal injury law exists to protect your rights regarding any injury you may suffer as a result of the negligent or reckless actions of someone else. The intent of personal injury law is to dissuade others from committing the same offense, in addition to restoring as much as possible of what the injured person has lost.
Various cases come under the umbrella of personal injury law. Practice areas handled by our lawyers serving Lacey Township include, but are not limited to, the following.
A very common personal injury results from what is known as a slip-and-fall. Premises liability law generally governs most slip-and-fall accidents. Premises liability law applies to all residential and commercial properties such as stores, shopping malls, hotels, offices, and even sidewalks and driveways.
This sphere of the law dictates that the property owner has the legal responsibility to maintain a safe environment for visitors (not including trespassers). Thus, failure to quickly tend to or warn of potential hazards could make the owner liable for an injury. Some potential hazards may include icy or uneven sidewalks, broken stairs, unmarked wet floors, and inadequate lighting.
In Ocean County, which includes Lacey Township, there were 11,970 car accidents in just 2020 alone! Frequently, the cause of car accidents is reckless driving on the part of the at-fault driver. Some forms of reckless driving include speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, tailgating, and failing to yield.
Distracted driving is an even more common type of driver negligence. Quite often, a motorist’s attention is divided while daydreaming, using the phone, adjusting the radio, putting on makeup, engaging with passengers, or eating and drinking.
Each year, more than 4 and a half million people in the US suffer the traumatic experience of being attacked by a dog. Of this number, nearly 1 in 5 require medical attention, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Sadly, the majority of dog attack victims are children of 5 to 9 years old since young ones are naturally attracted to dogs.
Not only can a dog attack be a frightening experience and spread diseases, but it can also leave victims with life-changing injuries. In addition to biting, an aggressive dog can cause injury to an innocent victim by knocking him or her over.
Airplane and helicopter accidents can leave victims with serious or fatal injuries. Aviation accidents can result from a variety of causes, such as pilot error or insufficient maintenance. In these cases, the airplane’s owner could be found liable for injuries.
Additionally, there may be other potentially liable parties involved with an aviation accident. For example, an airport may share liability if there was a failure to maintain the facility in a safe condition. Or, if it is discovered that the cause of the crash was a faulty part, the manufacturer could be liable.
Nursing home abuse
When the needs of your loved one are beyond what you can reasonably meet, you may seek an establishment that has the resources to provide such high-quality care. Sadly, that trust could be betrayed, and a loved one suffers abuse whether through neglect or even intentionally.
Forms of abuse include emotional, physical, sexual, and financial. In some cases, a nursing home may be held liable for the actions of its employees.
