We take personal injury claims very seriously. When a party is injured so severely they are left with a permanent disability, disfigurement, or loss of income, they may be entitled to compensation. Typical personal injury claims rest on the proven negligence of a responsible private citizen, company, and in some cases, even the state or country.

If you feel you may be entitled to financial compensation for an injury incurred within the New Jersey statute of limitations, it is vital to take immediate action. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims gives the complaining party up to two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit against the negligent party. It is imperative that anyone considering a personal injury claim contact our offices for representation as quickly as possible. Our attorneys can handle any personal injury case, including those listed here:

  • Car Collisions & Other Auto Accidents
  • Motorcycle & Bicycle Accidents
  • Nursing Home or Elder Abuse
  • Wrongful death
  • Slip & fall

  • workers’ compensation
  • Animal attacks
  • Medical Malpractice & Birth Injuries

  • Dangerous Drugs
  • Accidents Sustained On Private Property
  • Negligent Security
  • Flawed Consumer Products

Determining the negligent party’s duty of care


In personal injury cases, the law outlines the duty of care citizens are responsible for upholding. In most situations, private citizens have a reasonable duty of care to other citizens to follow the law to the best of their ability and remain aware of their surroundings.

In the case of auto accidents and driving under the influence, the driver in an altered state has failed to uphold their duty of care to follow the law and remain aware of their surroundings. This negligence can also apply to reckless and aggressive drivers who fail to obey traffic laws.

If you suspect that a private citizen, company, or the state has failed to uphold their responsibilities, and it resulted in your personal injury, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

If you live in the greater New Jersey area or the New York metropolitan area, our partners at DAME Legal can help you overcome this difficult part of your life with relative ease. Give us a call at 201-968-5800 or fill out our contact form on our site to begin the process.

From the time I walked in I realized I had found the right attorneys for me.

Bill from Saddle River

Shelley and her team got me my child back from a non-Hague country. She was there at the worse time in my life for tears on her shoulder and there in the best time in my life when she hugged my daughter as she got off of the plane.

M.M. New York

Ron knew the value of my case, when to fight, what to say and how to say it. He got me ten times more then I thought I would receive.

Juan from Hackensack

Patrick and I went to trial on my matter. Only on T.V. have I ever seen someone with as much command of the courtroom, respect of the Judge, and the ability to get through to the Jury.

Happy Customer

Marilyn is the best Family attorney in the State. That is all you need to know.

Steve from Verona

I never felt like a commodity. I was part of the team.

Mercedes from Jersey City

Pat settled my case and I was set for the rest of my life.

A.R. Hackensack

I was facing the best years of my life incarcerated. Shelley was there for me and my family the entire time. When we got a not-guilty verdict and I told her “you did it,” Shelley shot back with a “WE DID IT !”

Joe from New York

Don’t be taken back by Amanda’s youth. She has the wisdom of George Washington and the wit of George Carlin.

Robert – Paramus

The best thing I can say about Paul is beware the quiet ones. His knowledge of the law outwits all of his adversaries.

Jamie from Montclair
I would like to thank you for your superior and knowledgeable service. This was my first time being in a traffic incident of any type. Your pleasant, polite and reassuring voice really put me at ease.
