Table of Contents

    Throughout its years of personal injury experience, the firm of The Reiff Law Firm has become a trusted name in securing the compensation accident victims and their families need to begin recovery.  Our firm’s handling of your automobile ejection case begins with understanding – we listen to you and your account, then we work to corroborate and reinforce your claim.  We work with the police, medical professionals, leaders in accident reconstruction, and all appropriate parties to build your case.

    Understanding The Causes Of Automobile Ejection Cases

    Car, truck and SUV  manufacturers have a duty to the public to design reliable vehicles that protect the safety of you and your family.  Unfortunately in business, safety is but one of many competing concerns.  Engineering challenges, occupant comfort and vehicle affordability are but a few Whether intentionally or inadvertently, sometimes these other concerns take precedence over safety, thereby putting millions of Americans at elevated risk of serious or fatal injury in an accident.

    • Defective windshield – A windshield that does not conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) 205 and 212 can exacerbate the already severe injuries associated with vehicle ejection.
    • Defective seatbelt – A seatbelt is essentially a safety harness for the driver and passengers of a vehicle. Using a safety restraint system or a seat belt can reduce the chances of being ejected from a motor vehicle during a serious accident.   While well-built and well-designed seatbelts have saved thousands, if not millions, of lives, a malfunctioning seatbelt offers little to no protection from vehicle ejection. In 2003 alone, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that seat belt use saved the lives of about 14,900 Americans.
    • Faulty Driver-side or Passenger Door — Another type of defect that can lead to occupant ejection from a moving car or truck is a faulty door latch. In 2005, Ford recalled 359,000 Focus cars because drivers and passengers were at risk of being thrown out of the car if the door latch malfunctioned.
    • Rollovers — A motor vehicle occupant also risks complete or partial ejection from a motor vehicle during a rollover accident. About 50% of all rollover–related deaths occur due to occupant ejection.

    No New Jersey driver or passenger should have to risk a heightened chance of ejection from a motor vehicle because an automobile manufacturer was negligent, careless, or employed poor decision-making when designing the safety features on a car, a truck, or an SUV. Our lawyers have successfully represented injury clients with products liability claims and lawsuits against large car manufacturers. We have obtained substantial financial recovery for people who have been ejected from their vehicles.

    What Are Common Vehicle Ejection Injuries In Collisions And Rollovers?

    Injuries that result from occupant ejection are almost always extremely severe requiring extensive medical attention and rehabilitative therapy.  Unfortunately, death due to these severe injuries is not uncommon. Injuries include:

    • bone fractures
    • broken bones
    • amputated limbs
    • scarring
    • disfigurement
    • head injury
    • concussion
    • traumatic brain injury
    • neck injury
    • spinal cord injury
    • anxiety
    • PTSD

    When faced with injuries like these, it is essential that you work with an experienced and skilled defective products lawyer.

    ...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.

    THE REIFF FIRM IS AN OUTSTANDING LAW FIRM!

    I was referred to the Reiff Law Firm by a friend who had previously been a client of the firm. My friend told me that the Reiff Firm had done an incredible job handling his case and treated him like family. My friend's recommendation was spot on. I am going to miss them now that my case is over. Attorney Reiff and Attorney Toczydlowski are excellent attorneys. They really care. They got me an INCREDIBLE RESULT. Most importantly they were there for me during some extremely dark and difficult times in my life. I highly recommend the Reiff Law Firm to anyone seeking the very best legal representation for injuries they suffered in an accident.
