We believe that every person who has been injured should have the right to quality legal representation. We know that injuries cause serious financial hardships, and working a car accident case is very expensive, so there’s no way accident victims would want to shell out that sum of money upfront.
Rosengard Law Group works on a contingency basis. We will never charge any upfront legal fees, period. We do not get paid until we win. And, we only get paid a percentage of the settlement amount.
There’s no risk to you. You get a Cherry Hill car accident lawyer that’s heavily driven to get the maximum compensation for you, because if we lose, we make nothing.
Keep in mind that time is of the essence. Car accident claims fall under the Statute of Limitations. If you delay seeking compensation, you could risk losing your rights to make a claim. Speak to an attorney as soon as possible after the car accident to protect your right to claim compensation.
Am I Entitled To Car Accident Compensation?
There’s a lot of information to unpack and discuss during your case evaluation, but don’t despair, we’ve been down this road many times before and we’re prepared to hit it again. After our call you’ll have a handle on the entire process, because our Cherry Hill car accident lawyers will lay out the different types of compensation available to you based on the facts of your case.
If you have a valid car accident case, we will seek one or more of the following types of compensation:
Medical Costs – Present and Future
Medical care for your injury will be part of your compensation package. This includes your current medical care costs and any costs that you may need in the future, including traveling to and from your doctor or therapist and any out-of-pocket medical supply costs.
Lost Wages and Benefits
All the wages that you lost because you could not go to work while you were recovering from your injury will be covered in your settlement.
We may also seek compensation for lost employer contributions to your benefits, such as health care and retirement benefits.
If you receive profit sharing based on attendance, your attorney may also seek this loss as part of your wage benefits.
Future Earning Capacity
Some injuries lead to reduced capacities or disabilities. If your injury prevents you from returning to work or forces you return for less hours or in a lesser paying job, we will seek lost earning capacity.
This economic damage compensation only applies to a case if your ability to earn a living is impacted by your injury. Your Cherry Hill car accident attorney will discuss this with you during your consultations.
Cost of Services
Injuries can prevent you from doing your everyday work around your home. When you have to pay to have these services completed, you are entitled to compensation for the expense. This may include housework, yard work, auto repairs, home repairs, elderly care, childcare, or dog walking. If you did this prior to your accident and now have had to pay for these services, speak with your attorney.
Additionally, if you have had to make modifications to your home (wheelchair ramp or bathroom modifications) or vehicle to accommodate your injury, you are entitled to receive compensation for the cost of these services.
Loss of Consortium
If your injury has impacted the relationship you have with your spouse, you may be entitled to compensation for loss of consortium. We may also file a separate case on behalf of your spouse for this same type of compensation.
Can I Sue For Pain and Suffering After A Car Accident?
Pain and suffering and mental anguish are non-economic forms of compensation. We will calculate this type of compensation using information from the medical care professionals.
We will make sure that the compensation you receive is justified for the injuries and suffering you have endured.
You may be entitled to additional forms of compensation based on your case. Rosengard Law Group car accident lawyers in Cherry Hill NJ will discuss all the option that you have for compensation during your FREE CASE EVALUATION. Call us now 833-323-4448
What Is Comparative Negligence in A Car Accident Lawsuit?
The State of New Jersey has a law known as Comparative Negligence. This law dictates that fault must be assigned in an accident. Under this law, both parties can assume some of the responsibility of the accident. This law also states that if a person is found to be 50 percent or more responsible for an accident, they cannot seek compensation for their injuries.
Insurance companies have taken this law and used it to their advantage. For example, if a person is found to be 10 percent responsible for the accident that they were injured in, the insurer believes that they have the right to reduce the compensation package by 10 percent.
The comparative negligence law is one of the reasons it is so important to have a Cherry Hill car accident lawyer represent your case.
Too often, the police report assigns responsibility for an accident incorrectly. After all, the police were not actually there at the time of the accident and are using their limited time to fill out the report.
Rosengard Law Group will call in a car accident reconstruction expert to recreate the event and determine fault based on the evidence of the case. Together, we will work hard to establish the true cause of the car accident and the fault of all parties involved.
Common Car Accident Injuries
Injuries sustained in a car accident can range from minor to catastrophic. Every accident will be different, and the extent of the injuries will also differ from person to person.
Whiplash and Back Trauma
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries in a car accident. The violent motion of the impact can cause the neck to snap back and forth, which leads to whiplash. Even if you are secured firmly in your seat by the seat belt, whiplash can occur.
Whiplash and back trauma can lead to many different problems for the injury victim. In addition to the soreness of the neck and back from the whiplash, injury victims can experience intense headaches, tingling sensations in their limbs, and random muscle spasms. Without proper care and treatment, these side effects can last for many years.
Brain Injuries Including Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
It does not take a lot of impact to the head to cause an injury to the brain. Even the jerking motion of the impact can be enough to shake the brain within the skull and cause an injury. Brain injuries can range from a mild concussion to a traumatic brain injury.
All brain injuries are serious and require immediate care. Severe brain injuries may require extensive care for the rest of the victim’s life.
Soft Tissue Injuries
Soft tissue injuries occur in almost all car accidents. These are generally classified as sprains, strains, and torn ligaments or muscles.
You won’t see visible cuts or broken bones in soft tissue injuries. They can involve visible bruising and swelling.
The pain and suffering from soft tissue injuries can last a long time, and torn muscles and ligaments may require surgery to correct.
Lacerations and Broken Bones
The impact of a car accident can cause lacerations and broken bones in any area of the body. Shattering glass can lead to cuts on the hands, face, and neck.
A hard impact can break or even crush bones.
Hairline fractures to the bones can cause significant pain and suffering. Fractures are not always detectable at the scene of the car accident. The chaos from the accident and the amount of adrenaline pumping through your body at this time can cause you not to notice the pain.
Even if you don’t think you broke any bones, you should be examined for fractures by a medical professional immediately after the crash. You’ll also want to have a medical report for your Cherry Hill car accident lawyer to use when fighting for your compensation.
Back and Spinal Cord Injuries
Although your spine is designed to be the strongest bone system in your body, the amount of bones and soft connective tissue in your spine also makes it one of the easiest parts of your body to damage.
Impact during a car accident can damage to the structure of your spine and spinal cord.
Your spinal cord protects the central nervous system, and damage to the spinal cord can have lifelong consequences. Even if you believe that your spine has not been injured in the accident, make sure to have a complete exam by a medical professional to make sure that your spine and spinal cord are okay.
Other common injuries that occur in a car accident can include trauma to internal organs, internal bleeding, and emotional trauma from the event.
It’s important to get medial attention and speak with a car accident lawyer if you sustained even a slight injury in a car accident.
What Can A Cherry Hill Car Accident Lawyer Do For Me?
Being injured is never on your “To-Do” list for the day. No one gets up in the morning, and plans to have their whole life changed. Sadly, personal injuries do happen, and no one is ever prepared.
Your injury will impact your life in many ways. In addition to the physical pain and discomfort, you could also face financial hardships. Loss of income, medical expenses, and cost for services you need while you are recovering can quickly cause financial distress.
The entire event can become overwhelming. Trying to make medical appointments, covering bills, and recovering from the accident can leave anyone in emotional shambles.
When an injury happens, turning to a personal injury lawyer for help will eliminate a lot of the stress you’re feeling.
We’ll help you make a claim for compensation and manage all of the interactions you have with the insurance company, reducing the amount of stress you will experience from this event.
Rosengard Law Group will offer all of the following services:
Provide Legal Representation on Contingency Basis
As stated above, we will represent your case on a contingency basis. This means that there is NEVER A FEE until your case has settled, and at that time we only get a percentage of the settlement.
Ensure You Are Receiving All Necessary Medical Care
Insurance companies are well-known for denying medical treatments because they feel that it is unnecessary or too expensive. We will work closely with your medical care providers to make sure that any treatments they find necessary are approved by the insurance company. The insurer covering the accident is obligated to make sure that you receive the care you need to make a recovery. We’ll make sure that this obligation is met by the insurer.
Interact on Your Behalf with Insurance Company
We’ll manage all the interactions that you have with the insurance company. This includes interviews and questioning by the insurer and all paperwork generated by the company. We’ll also make sure that the insurance company is providing you with all of the benefits you are entitled to under the terms of their policy. Too often many of these benefits are “forgotten” by the insurer. We’ll be in your corner to keep an eye on them.
Provide Expert Services and Witnesses
Access to expert services and witnesses can be crucial to a case. Your injury may require the testimony of an expert as to the outcome prognosis based on your specific personal information. We may even need an expert witness that can testify about how a piece of machinery works or how it can fail as a reason. Access to experts helps to build a strong case. We foot the bill for experts when working on your case.
Negotiate A Compensation Settlement
The most important service that your Cherry Hill car accident lawyers will provide is their negotiation skills. Negotiating for a fair settlement is what our attorneys do best. Insurance companies are only concerned with saving money. They will low-ball and undercut your compensation package in any way that they can. This is what the adjustors are taught and how they are expected to perform.
We’ll make sure that your compensation package is complete. We’ll review any compensation offer to ensure that it has all forms of compensation that you are entitled to under the law and that the value of each type of compensation is complete and fair. We don’t want to leave any money on the table!
Types of Accidents Our Cherry Hill NJ Injury Lawyers Handle
Premises liability includes all types of accidents that occur on a commercial or private property. There are many types of accidents associated with premises liability, some of which include:
- Slip and Fall Accidents
- Stairwell and Staircase Accidents
- Elevator and Escalator Accidents
- Falling Objects
- Animal Attack and Dog Bites
Another type of premises liability injury is ones that are caused by dangerous settings. If you are harmed in a criminal attack because the commercial property did not keep the area well-lit or allowed the brush to grow up creating a great hiding place for criminal activity, the property owner may be held responsible for the injuries you received in the attack.
Premises liability cases are often difficult to prove because the property owner usually makes repairs quickly to the cause of the event. It is imperative that you seek assistance from an injury lawyer in Cherry Hill NJ as soon as possible to protect your rights and seek compensation.
Medical malpractice is a type of injury received when a medical professional does not treat their patient by the “accepted norm.” Malpractice can happen in any field of medicine and is not restricted to just doctors.
If you believe that you have been harmed by the care you received from your care provider, you are encouraged to schedule a free case evaluation with Rosengard Law group. Medical malpractice is a very serious case, and the injuries can be life-changing.
Birth and Delivery Injuries
Birth and delivery injuries generally fall under medical malpractice. However, since these injuries are often catastrophic to the mother or infant, these injuries generally fall into a category of their own.
Injuries to a baby during the delivery can lead to lifelong disabilities. Injuries to the mother can lead to infections, infertility, or possibly death. Any and all birth and delivery injuries should be viewed as serious. A lawyer and medical specialist should be contacted immediately.
Dangerous medications enter the market at an alarming rate. Many of these medications cause side effects that are often worse than the condition that they are treating. Sadly, pharmaceutical companies often do not disclose the potential for these side effects until it is too late. They must be held responsible.
Because dangerous medications often affect large groups of people, these personal injury cases often turn into a class action lawsuit. We will advise if your injury qualifies for the class action or if you should seek compensation independently.
Defective Products – Including Medical Devices
All manufacturers have an obligation produce products that are safe for use. When a consumer product becomes available, and it starts harming consumers, the manufacturer can be held liable for the injuries.
Similar to dangerous medications, many of these types of lawsuits end up as class action suits because of the large number of people that the product harms. We’ll look at the facts of the case and determine which type of case we should file when you are harmed by a defective product.
Mesothelioma is a serious lung disease that is directly related to asbestos exposure. Since this is a very slow progressing disease, the initial exposure may be decades ago. If you have been diagnosed with Mesothelioma, it is essential that you contact an injury lawyer that handles asbestos cases. There are several forms of compensation that you are entitled to under state and federal laws.
Nursing Home Abuse
Nursing home abuse has become a very serious problem in recent years as the population ages, and more people are using these facilities. Some nursing homes are understaffed and/or have unqualified staff, which leads to injuries of the patients.
It is very important for family members to monitor the care of their loved ones while in a nursing home. The elderly may be intimidated or embarrassed by the actions taken against them. They might not say anything about the abuse.
If abuse is happening, contact Rosengard Law Group, so an investigation can be started and the abuse can be stopped. Once the incident has been reported, we’ll seek compensation for your loved one for the injuries received.
Any injury received while you are performing your job duties is covered under worker’s compensation. The State of New Jersey has tried to streamline this type of coverage by handling it all through one provider. While this made sense on paper, it often leaves the injured worker fighting for benefits.
All injured employees are encouraged to seek legal representation so that they receive all of the benefits they are entitled to under the law.
When a personal injury leads to the death of the injured victim, a wrongful death case will be filed.
The death can happen instantly, or at a later time, however, the death must be a direct result of the injury. When this type of death occurs, some remaining family members have the right to seek compensation.
The loss of a loved one is never easy. In fact, the pain that the family experiences cannot be easily put into words. Seeking compensation will not alleviate that pain. However, compensation will alleviate the financial burdens that the family is suffering from their loss. This help can allow them to grieve and begin the healing process without having additional worries.
