Experienced Newark PERSONAL INJURY Attorney

Compassionate Personal Injury Attorney in Newarkinjured man with cast on arm

Personal injury and wrongful death cases are incredibly complex. Insurance companies and their defense attorneys process most injury claims and lawsuits. These parties will often try to avoid rewarding the maximum compensation after an accident. As a result, it is critical to have good legal representation from a New Jersey law firm to preserve your rights.

With over 60 years of experience, the Newark personal injury lawyers at Ehrlich, Petriello, Gudin & Plaza, Attorneys at Law can help. Some of our attorneys have spent years representing insurance companies and now use their unique insight to protect our clients. If you have suffered an injury in Newark or New Jersey, we can help you pursue compensation and justice.

Our firm handles personal injury and wrongful death matters on a contingency-fee basis, which means that we only receive a fee if we recover compensation for our injured clients.

Were You the Victim of Negligence in New Jersey?

We aggressively represent those harmed due to the misconduct of others resulting in injury, distress, property damage, or loss of reputation. Our attorneys are skilled alternative dispute resolution negotiators who can work hard to obtain the best possible settlement. We offer representation in other cases related to intentional torts, such as fraud, assault and battery, and defamation.

Our personal injury law attorneys have successfully handled cases involving:

  • Automobile accidents
  • Other motor vehicle accidents
  • Dangerous premises and liability
  • Defective products
  • Medical malpractice
  • Wrongful death

In many cases, injury claims are settled prior to filing of a lawsuit. When it is not in your best interest to settle, our attorneys can litigate your personal injury case. We have the knowledge that is needed to obtain the best compensation for your injuries and recovery.

Motor Vehicle Accident Representation

The majority of injury cases in New Jersey come from motor vehicle accidents. These accidents can be devastating to the victim both during and after the incident. In addition to pain and suffering, people injured in accidents face hospital bills, medical expenses, property damage, and lost wages. Insurance compensation often is not sufficient to cover all of these costs.

If you are recovering from an injury caused by an accident, you should not have to also worry about these expenses. You deserve to feel secure in your finances as you recover. Our knowledgeable automobile accident attorneys can help protect your rights and give you peace of mind after an accident.

We regularly assist injury victims in accident cases such as:

  • Car Accidents
  • Bus Accidents
  • Train Accidents
  • Bicycle Accidents
  • Trucking Accidents
  • Motorcycle Accidents

Each motor vehicle injury case has its own unique legal nuances. Our attorneys have a comprehensive understanding of injury and accident law to fully assist you with your case.

Premises Liability Injury Advocacy

Property owners have a duty of care, and must ensure their property is safe for anyone who may enter the property. Owners who negligently maintain their property in unsafe conditions are legally responsible for accidents occurring on their premises. Our personal injury lawyers can utilize whatever resource or method necessary to investigate and pursue injury claims from unsafe premises.

Our premises liability representation includes:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Negligent security
  • Construction site accidents
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Dog bites

Premises liability law is complex and can vary widely between states. For example, New Jersey law has strict liability for dog bite injuries, making owners strictly liable for such injuries. Our attorneys can look into all aspects of your case to help you recover the compensation you need to recover.

We Are Here for You After a Wrongful Death Accident

Injuries caused by negligence or intentional misconduct sometimes result in the wrongful death of a loved one. These fatal injury cases can leave loved ones with medical bills, lost income, funeral costs, and emotional pain. Surviving dependents have the right to recover damages for these costs and losses.

If you need to file a wrongful death lawsuit, we can help you consider your options and obtain compensation. Our injury lawyers in Newark, NJ take prompt action to obtain a favorable recovery. After such a tragedy, we strive to help minimize the struggle that often accompanies the death of a family wage earner.
