As an Attorney I do not judge people---I represent the Constitution of the United States to the best of my ability. Due process violations are not legal technicalities, due process is essential to fundamental fairness and justice. "The Judge who always likes the result he reaches is a bad judge." (United States Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, a New Jersey Native, reportedly speaking at SMU)

NJ. Serious Personal Injury Law Firm

The law firm is currently handling wrongful death and Survivorship suits.  The wrongful death of a loved one through an auto accident, medical malpractice, excessive force, and other means is considered a serious matter. that the Attorney must investigate, obtain expert reports, and often complete depositions. The NJ wrongful death and survivorship statute is very specific. The issue as to whether the person briefly survived the injury is one of the significant issues argued by Wrongful Death plaintiff attorneys.

The Law firm sues dog owners who permit their dogs to bite citizens. The estimate is that 4.5 million dog bites occur per year nationwide and 800,000 go to the hospital---enough of this negligent madness. In New Jersey, negligent owners should be sued. The firm also represents people who are injured due to premise liability such as slip and falls, and the law firm represents individuals who have been seriously harmed through assault and battery. The criminal law prosecutes people for assault and battery but in some cases, the victim should recoup loss wages, pain, and suffering, and medical costs for serious injuries caused by assault and battery.

Dram Shop liability applies to Establishments that sell alcoholic beverages to visibly intoxicated people who foreseeably assault people causing injuries. Drunk drivers in New Jersey cause many accidents per year which could have been negated if a responsible Tavern owner would have cut the person off for Drinks. In some cases, even the Drunk drivers can sue the Tavern owner.

The law firm represents victims of Auto Accidents caused by motor vehicles, buses, motorcycles, trucks, and Auto Accidents between cars and pedestrians. While all of the accidents can be serious the law may vary as it relates to damages, personal injury protection, and the statutory law that determines the party that is at fault for the injury. The verbal threshold law is particularly significant when assessing the law as it relates to the accident victim. Moreover, even if the accident vehicle is entitled to damages the Attorney may be required to submit certifications and expert reports to assure that the victim obtains the maximum recovery.

Sometimes apparently minor NJ personal injuries turn into serious wrongful death and Survivorship injuries.
