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 & MesotheliomaAsbestos exposure, often job-related, can cause serious damage to your lungs, and has been closely linked to the development of Mesothelioma cancer.
  • Assault and Sexual Abuse. If you are the victim of assault or sexual abuse, you have the right to file a civil claim against the offender(s), even if they were not charged or convicted criminally.
  • Construction Accidents. You may be entitled to compensation if you have been hurt due to unsafe or hazardous conditions on a job site.
  • Dog bitesOwners of all dogs, not just so-called “dangerous” breeds, can be liable for serious injuries related to bites and attacks by their animals.
  • 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.
  • Nursing Home & Elder Abuse. Nursing homes must provide a safe environment for their residents, as well as appropriate supervision and assistance; failure to do so may lead to abuse and/or injury for which they are liable.
  • Product Liability.Injuries which are caused by a product’s design, production, packaging or other product defects may result in liability to the manufacturer and/or seller of the products.
  • Slip and fall liability. S lip and fall incidents involve an injury in which an individual slips, trips or falls on the property of another person, business, or entity. Falls can occur from many causes, such as ice, wet floors, negligent design or construction, and more.
  • Tractor Trailer Accidents. Crashes involving tractor-trailers can often lead to catastrophic damage and injuries, and which often require complex litigation against one or more commercial entities.
  • Worker’s Compensation. All workers are at risk for injuries suffered on the job, as all employers are required to keep safe work environments which are up to the governing laws and regulations of the United States and each individual state.
  • Wrongful death. In a wrongful death case, a loved one has lost his life due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another, whether 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.
