The average driver will be in three to four car accidents over a lifetime. Many of these wrecks will be minor, but some may be serious, causing devastating or fatal injuries.
Dealing with car accident injuries can be physically and emotionally difficult for victims and their families. What can be just as challenging is:
- Knowing whether and what type of negligence caused the crash
- Figuring out the liable parties and legal options
- Navigating the complicated recovery process.
At Maggiano, DiGirolamo & Lizzi, P.C., our lawyers have extensive experience representing car accident victims and families in various types of cases, including (but not limited to) those involving:
- Drunk driving crashes
- Distracted driving wrecks
- Reckless driving accidents
- Accidents caused by vehicle equipment failures.
Since 2009, truck accidents in the U.S. have increased dramatically, with fatal truck wrecks rising by about 26 percent and injury-related trucking crashes surging by about 62 percent.1 While these accidents can be caused by various forms of negligence, most commonly, factors like (but not necessarily limited to) the following can contribute to these wrecks:
- Truck driver negligence, like fatigued driving, impaired driving and failures to comply with traffic laws
- Trucking company negligence, such as hiring dangerous truck drivers, failing to train truck drivers and failures to maintain trucks
- Other negligence, like the negligence of truck equipment manufacturers (when equipment failures contribute to crashes) or the negligence of municipalities (when dangerous road conditions cause wrecks).
Our lawyers can help you prove when these or other forms of negligence cause truck accidents.
Fatal motorcycle accidents comprise about 14 percent of all deadly traffic accidents.2 When motorcycle wrecks are not deadly, they can still have catastrophic outcomes, causing debilitating injuries. Like truck accidents, motorcycle crashes can be caused by various types of negligence, like the negligence of:
- Passenger vehicle drivers
- Truck drivers
- Motorcycle equipment manufacturers
- Motorcycle technicians
While nursing homes can be nice assisted living and care facilities, not all of them are safe places for the elderly. All too often, abuse of residents occurs at these facilities, causing physical, psychological and/or financial harm.
In many cases, the negligence of nursing home staff and the companies that own and operate these homes play a role in the abuse. Some examples of this negligence include:
- Improperly restraining residents
- Failures to properly monitor residents
- Failures to hire qualified staff
- Failures to hire enough staff
- Lack of security.
New Jersey is a no-fault workers’ compensation state.3 This means that, when a workplace injury occurs, the injured worker can be entitled to workers’ compensation without having to prove who or what was at fault for causing the injury.
Workers’ compensation benefits may be just a fraction of the financial recovery that injured workers are entitled to following a workplace accident. In some cases, injured workers may also have a personal injury claim against a third party, like a contractor, an equipment manufacturer or the owner of a building.
The attorneys at Maggiano, DiGirolamo & Lizzi, P.C. are skilled at helping injured workers identify and pursue all available legal remedies so they can obtain the full compensation they deserve.
