Types of personal injury cases
If you’re unsure whether your illness or injury may entitle you to compensation, speak with a Gloucester County personal injury attorney at Hoffman DiMuzio. We typically handle cases involving:
- Auto accidents. You may be entitled to compensation when you are hurt in an auto accident, even if you were partially at fault.
- Asbestosis. Asbestos exposure can cause serious damage to your lungs because it is a fibrous substance.
- Assault and battery.
- Dog bites. The law cannot prevent you from being bitten or attacked by a dog or other animal, but you do have rights to enforce against a dog owner if you are involved in a dog bite.
- Defective products. Defective products law addresses issues related to a product defect that results in an injury or death to the product’s user. Product defects may stem from problems with the product’s design, production marketing or packaging.
- Medical malpractice. Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional negligently fails to follow established protocol during a medical procedure resulting in injury or death to the patient.
- Slip and fall liability. Premises and slip and fall liability law involves injury while on the property of a business or another individual. Slip and fall incidents involve an injury in which an individual slips, trips or falls on the property.
- Unsafe Drugs. drug manufacturers, distributors, physicians, and others can legally be held responsible for harm caused by the unsafe drugs they make or distribute.
- Wrongful death. In a wrongful death case, a loved one has lost his life due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another. The action causing death may be intentional or unintentional. Wrongful death cases are separate from any criminal action that may also be taken.
While personal injury cases are complex and involve a multitude of issues, New Jersey follows the doctrine of modified comparative negligence. This means that even if you were partly to blame for your injuries, you may still receive compensation from other responsible parties. Also if you have lost a loved one due to an accident, speak with a wrongful death attorney from our law firm to discuss if a wrongful death claim may be in your family’s best interest. Our lawyers are committed to victim advocacy and survivor support.
