    Common New Jersey Personal Injury Claims Our Firm Handles

    A personal injury claim may arise under numerous scenarios. The details of your case will determine the type of personal injury suit you will need to file. The following is a list of common personal injury claims our firm can litigate for you.

    Car Accidents

    Car accidents are a common occurrence due to the number of people that commute through the State of New Jersey on a daily basis. There are a number of factors that may lead to a severe car accident. For example, if a person was driving while under the influence of alcohol, they are more likely to lose control of their vehicle. A car may also occur under the following circumstances:

    • Distracted driving
    • Drowsy driving
    • Speeding
    • Ignoring traffic signals

    This is not a comprehensive list. If you were injured in another manner during a car accident, our firm could help you pursue compensation for your injuries.

    Medical Malpractice

    Many patients do not expect that they will be injured due to the actions of a doctor they trusted. Unfortunately, there are some doctors that fail to provide a patient with the standard of medical care that is adequate. For example, if a patient has developed cancer, it is imperative that a doctor is able to diagnose the condition accurately. If a doctor fails to diagnose a disease like cancer, a patient may lose valuable time to seek treatment for their condition. Medical malpractice can also be committed in a number of other ways:

    • Birth injuries to a newborn or a mother
    • Misdiagnosing a condition
    • Prescribing the wrong medication or treatment plan
    • Surgical errors like leaving a medical instrument inside a patient

    It is important to note that not every mistake by a doctor may lead to a valid medical malpractice claim. Our firm can evaluate the circumstances of your case to explore your legal options for pursuing compensation from a negligent medical practitioner. Additionally, an injured patient may also be able to seek compensation from the hospital that employed the doctor.

    Premises Liability Lawsuits

    Premises liability deals with a landowner’s duty to maintain their property. Specifically, if a landowner fails to correct safety hazards on their property, they could be held liable if a visitor is injured. For example, if a restaurant owner fails to clean up a spill, this could lead to a slip and fall accident. There are other circumstances that could lead to a premises liability lawsuit:

    • Construction accidents
    • Parking lot accidents
    • Hotel accidents
    • Dog bites

    There are many other personal injury claims that the Reiff Law Firm can litigate on your behalf. To learn more about filing a lawsuit after an accident, continue reading and speak with an experienced New Jersey personal injury attorney.

    When to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in New Jersey

    As a victim of an accident, you should be aware that you only have a limited amount of time to file your personal injury case. The reason for this is the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations determines the length of time that a potential plaintiff has to file a personal injury lawsuit. The filing deadline for your case can vary depending on the circumstances of your case. For example, a medical malpractice lawsuit may have a different deadline than a case based on a car accident.

    In New Jersey, the statute of limitations for a personal injury lawsuit is two years from the date of the accident. When victims wait longer than two years to file their case, the court could bar their claim. This would typically happen after a defendant moves to dismiss due to a violation of the statute of limitations.

    Do not make assumptions about the statute of limitations for your case. If you believe you have more time than the law affords, you could easily miss the filing deadline for your case. As a result, you may be left with no other option to seek compensation for your injuries.

    ...I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case.

    As a former client, I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case. I was in a very serious automobile accident with severe injuries to neck and back areas. I contacted the law firm and asked what to do with the medical bills and how do I get the correct representation against the individual who rear-ended my car. In short, the firm took complete control of the case contacting my insurance company and asking for all the medical bills and legal matters be sent directly to them. I was able to get treatment from my doctor without worrying about the legal stuff. Furthermore, two years later the case was settled for a substantial amount of money. My life was much better due to the firm handling of my case. My attorneys at Reiff Law Firm are absolutely the best and I have recommended to my family friends. Thanks Reiff Law Firm.

    I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city.

    Before meeting with Jeffrey Reiff and Bob Szostak from the Reiff law firm I’ve consulted with a few other injury attorneys in the Philadelphia region. Difference was, these guys know their stuff! I was absolutely blown away by how compassionate and welcome this law firm makes you feel. Once signed with them I never went a single week without staying in the loop with the progress and updates these guys have on your case. Working with them for some time turned what was an injury case, into a family! From calls and meetings, to just calling in to say “hi how’s everything going” I’ve never felt like a beat was skipped. I’d recommended the Reiff law firm 100%! I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city. The awards they’ve earned over the years speaks for itself! I can never thank the Reiff law firm and Bob Szostak enough for everything they’ve done, their professionalism, compassion and all of their knowledge and experience! Highly rated! Best in the city! I look forward continuing our relationship in the future. Thanks again My Reiff family!

    ...without them I would have been lost.

    I can’t say enough great things about the Attorneys at the Reiff Law Firm. They made me feel at ease when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. Never being in a situation like this I was so unsure of where to start and how to go about the process. Justin gave me options where I thought I had none and explained everything in a way that I could understand. Justin and the team helped me arrange all of the treatment and therapy that I needed, without them I would have been lost. My attorney John went to bat for me like no one else could have, his knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. If anyone is ever in need of a team of attorneys the Reiff Law Firm is my ONLY recommendation.
