Services Provided By A Cherry Hill Personal Injury Lawyer
A Cherry Hill NJ personal injury lawyer will offer all of the following services:
Provide Legal Representation on Contingency Basis
We will represent your personal injury 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.
When you are facing the financial hardship of an injury, you should not have to face paying up-front legal bills as well. By working on a contingency, every person who has been injured regardless of financial abilities can receive quality legal representation.
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. Some may deny treatment because they feel that the treatment is too new or considered an alternative. These are all poor reasons to deny an injured person the care they need.
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. Your Cherry Hill personal injury lawyer will 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.
Have Expert Services and Witnesses Available For Your Case
Access to expert services and witnesses can be crucial to a case. We may need to call in an expert to perform an accident reconstruction to help determine cause and fault. Your injury may require the opinion 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.
Negotiate A Settlement For Your Case
The most important service that your Cherry Hill personal injury lawyer will provide is their negotiation skills. Negotiating for a fair settlement is what your attorney will 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.
Types of Accidents Our Cherry Hill Personal Injury Lawyers Handle
An injury can happen in any type of situation. The injury does not have to be from a specific type of event or a specific type of injury to qualify for compensation. To receive compensation, an injury needs to be the result of a negligent act of another person.
Most personal injuries, however, occur from the following types of events. Even though they are the most common reasons for personal injuries, it should be understood that they are not the only cause of injuries.
Car accidents account for a majority of all personal injuries.
- Cherry Hill car accidents
- Trucking or Commercial Vehicle Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Pedestrian Accidents – Including Bicycles
- Single Car Accidents – Due To Malfunction or Defective Equipment
- Personal Watercraft – boats, JetSki and similar personal craft
Any type of accident involving a passenger vehicle can lead to significant personal injuries. It is always a better choice to seek legal representation when you have been injured in a moving vehicle accident.
Premises liability includes all types of accidents that occur on a commercial property. The only exception to this is an animal attack or dog bite. This type of accident can go against a private property owner. 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 criminal 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 a Cherry Hill personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after you have been injured to protect your rights to 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 CONSULTATION with a Cherry Hill personal injury lawyer.
Medical malpractice is a very serious act, and the injuries caused by such an act 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, and 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.
Because dangerous medications often affect large groups of people, these personal injury cases often turn into a class action lawsuit. Your lawyer will advise you on 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 only to allow products that are safe to use enter the market. 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 choice you should take to seek compensation 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 a Cherry Hill personal injury lawyer that handles asbestos cases immediately. 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. Many times these nursing homes are understaffed 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 one while in a nursing home. Many times, the elderly are intimidated or embarrassed by the actions taken against them, and they will 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 has occurred.
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.
