Our Practice Areas of Personal Injury Law in Manchester Township, New Jersey

Personal injury law involves any physical or emotional injury an innocent victim suffers as a result of someone else’s negligence. The purpose of personal injury law is to restore as much as possible to the injured party and to discourage others from committing the same offense.

There are many types of cases that fall under the broad term of personal injury law. Some practice areas that our firm covers in Manchester Township include the following.

Premises liability and slip-and-fall

This is the most common type of personal injury case. New Jersey law states that property owners are required to maintain their property, or premises, in a safe condition for visitors. If an owner fails to do so or to warn of potential hazards, he or she could be found liable when a visitor suffers an injury. This law applies to residential and commercial properties.

Some examples of potential hazards that could cause an injury include lack of adequate lighting, broken steps, uneven or wet and icy surfaces, and cords left in walkways. Victims who experience a fall may be left suffering from various injuries such as broken bones, torn muscles, spinal cord damage, and brain injuries – to name a few.

Auto accidents

In 2020, there were 11,970 auto accidents in Ocean County. Almost all car accidents are the result of someone’s negligence. Distracted driving, which includes texting while driving, adjusting the GPS, engaging with passengers, eating and drinking, and daydreaming, is the most common form of driver negligence.

Another type of negligence is reckless driving, which includes:

  • Speeding
  • Tailgating
  • Failing to yield
  • Driving under the influence

Victims are legally entitled to compensation. However, a victim may find that the insurance company is reluctant to offer a fair amount in compensation for damages.

Commercial truck accidents

Different from car accidents, which can be traumatic, collisions that involve commercial trucks tend to be catastrophic. Due to the immense size of these vehicles, and the force that they generate on impact, commercial truck accidents frequently leave victims with life-changing or fatal injuries.

Commercial truck accidents are vastly different from accidents that involve average-sized automobiles. These cases are more complex since they can involve multiple potentially liable parties and their insurance companies. Additionally, unlike car accidents, commercial truck accidents require extensive investigational work.

Medical malpractice

Physicians and other health professionals, and healthcare facilities, are legally required to perform what is known as the standard of care. This phrase basically means a trained health professional will perform, to a reasonable degree, the same level of care to a patient that would be expected of other health professionals in similar circumstances.

If a healthcare provider or facility negligently fails to provide this standard of care and the patient is harmed, or death results, this is considered to be medical malpractice.

Examples of medical malpractice include:

  • Failure to diagnose
  • Birth injuries
  • Surgical errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Hospital infections
  • Medication errors
  • Data errors on a patient’s medical record
  • Violations of patient’s privacy (HIPAA)

Maritime injury

Maybe the reason you especially enjoy living around Manchester Township is being within reach of plenty of water activities. Have you been in a boating accident or experienced another type of maritime incident? Perhaps you were at work, a boat operator was drunk, or you slipped on deck due to someone’s carelessness.

In a wide variety of cases, Judd Shaw Injury Law can help you. You have rights that must and can be prevented if you get assistance from the right law firm, and that’s us.

Wrongful death

Losing a loved one can be emotionally crushing. The loss may be especially compounded, though, when it could have been avoided. This is immensely unfair. Feelings of grief may be coupled with a sense of seeking justice for your loved one. When someone’s negligence results in the death of another, this constitutes wrongful death.

When wrongful death occurs, the family of the victim has the legal right to pursue compensation for the financial and emotional damages that result from the loss of their loved one. Wrongful death cases cover a wide range of areas, such as:

  • Motor vehicle collisions
  • Pedestrian or bicycle accidents
  • Construction-related incidents
  • Product liability
  • Animal attacks
  • Violent acts

This is just a small list of the various types of personal injury claims that our experienced attorneys assist with on a daily basis. If you or your loved one has suffered a personal injury, contact our law firm serving Manchester Township. Our team of experienced personal injury lawyers will help you get the full compensation you are entitled to receive.

Compensation You May Be Legally Entitled to Receive for Damages

It is only right that you receive proper compensation for a personal injury that resulted from negligence on the part of someone else. A personal injury lawyer with our law firm will make sure that you receive a fair settlement, even if this means filing a lawsuit to receive compensation beyond what an insurance company might cover.

Compensation may include economic and non-economic damages, such as:

  • Present and long-term expenses for medical treatment
  • Present and long-term lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Household renovation for disability
  • Emotional distress
  • Pain and suffering
