Personal Injury / Product Liability

Personal Injury / Product LiabilityThe Law Office has a diverse Personal Injury and Product Liability practice. Recent results on behalf of our clients include a settlement in the amount of $2,700,000.00 as New Jersey counsel for the family of a 81 year old man who consumed food contaminated with the bacteria listeria during the manufacturing process and died, after over a year of pain and suffering. We obtained a settlement in the amount of $3,500,000.00 as New Jersey counsel for a husband and wife who lost her pregnancy, with twins, caused by the wife’s consumption of tainted deli-purchased sliced turkey breast, a settlement in the amount of $225,000.00 as New Jersey counsel for a woman who elected to terminate her pregnancy after confirming that she had consumed a meat product which contained a dangerous food bacteria as a result of improper manufacturing processes, a settlement of $70,000.00 for a husband and wife who lost her pregnancy as a result of the food bacteria listeria, where the exact source of the bacteria could not be positively confirmed and after defeating the defendants legal position, strenuously briefed and argued before a Judge, that our clients claims, based on New Jersey Product Liability and Negligence Law, should be dismissed because of federal pre-emption law.

We obtained a recovery in excess of $220,000.00 on behalf of a minor sexually assaulted by a police officer managing a New Jersey town’s Explorer program while she was involved in a charitable organization activity, with all defendants asserting legal immunity from civil prosecution; a settlement of $100,000.00 for a pedestrian hit by an automobile; a settlement of $50,000.00 for a motorcyclist who broke his finger when a car made a sudden left turn in front of him; a settlement in excess of $60,000.00 for a woman rear-ended at a stop light, and a settlement of $22,500.00 for a women involved in a car accident. We recovered $37,500.00 on behalf of an 84 year old woman, against her own insurance company, as a result of an accident she had with an under-insured driver. We recently resolved a case where our client was injured in a car accident for $47,500.00 through arbitration, instead of trial. The insurance carrier had offered $12,000.00 to settle and our client did not want to proceed to trial. We prepared an extensive arbitration package, selected an arbitrator and resolved the Case.

If you or someone you know has suffered a personal injury, please call me to meet with me at my office, or your home if you are unable to travel because of the injury. Personal Injury cases often require preservation of evidence and other issues that should be addressed at the onset of the case. For instance, if you believe you have suffered food poisoning, and you have some of the remaining food product, it should be placed in a sealed bag, marked “Do Not Eat” and placed in your refrigerator so it can be examined by an expert. Photos of motor vehicles or accident scenes should be taken prior to repair.

We have excellent relationships with attorneys who have exceptional skills in particular types of cases, or fact patterns, and we will not hesitate to work with other New Jersey attorneys, or attorneys throughout the Country. Bringing in expert lawyers reduces our fee if there is a recovery, but if it’s helpful to your case we do it without pause.  Therefore, there is no need for you to cull the internet, trying to decipher websites and ascertain who might be best for you. If a particular food product has caused a grave illness or death, we will know the best lawyers who have recently handled such complex claims, or who are  involved in a current food illness outbreak – often many other people are affected by the same type of tainted food. The same goes for brain injury cases, defective products, or accident cases involving a variety of causes. We will know what’s happening in the legal world and how to best handle your claim.

Please see our client’s testimonials, listed on our website and available by internet search, to confirm our integrity and straight forward, honest way of handling our client’s cases.
