What must a worker do if injured on the job?
Notify your supervisor, personnel office, or anyone in authority at your place of business as soon as possible. The notice does not have to be in writing. If necessary, request medical treatment as soon as possible. Under the NJ workers' compensation law, the employer and/or their insurance carrier can select the physician(s) to treat injured workers for work-related injuries.
As a New Jersey employer, what must I do once I have been notified of an accident?
Notify your insurance carrier immediately to file a “First Report of Injury with the Division of Workers' Compensation. If the employer is a self-insured or governmental entities must directly file this report with the State of New Jersey.
Why could I recover damages from a product that causes harm?
Generally, manufacturers are under a duty to warn consumers of a product's potential dangers and instruct users on any precautions they must take. If a product causes injury, despite the user following the warnings, a consumer may have legal recourse, especially if the warnings failed to clearly explain the nature and seriousness of the possible risks.
How can I prove my products liability case?
Proving causation in a products liability case can be complex. That is why hiring an experienced personal injury Attorney is essential to preserve your legal rights. Your attorney must help you establish that the product was defective due to the manufacturing from the defendant. That defect must be the direct cause of the accident that caused you harm.
Who can be liable if I am injured by the negligence of my physician?
Medical malpractice is not limited to medical doctors. It applies also to nurses, dentists, osteopaths, health care facilities, and others providing health care services, such as nursing homes.
What is "informed consent" and how does it relate to my potential medical malpractice claim?
This legal term refers to the duty of a physician (or other medical provider) to disclose to the patient all of the potential benefits, risks, and alternatives involved in any surgical procedure, medical procedure, or other course of treatment. The doctor must obtain the patient's written consent to proceed with any type of operation. If you have not consented to a specific surgical procedure or were not aware of the common risks of a certain treatment, your physician may be liable for any harm suffered.
Legal claims that arise from vehicle accidents are typically governed by the law of negligence. Any individual who negligently operates a motor vehicle may be required to pay damages to an injured victim. A personal injury case involving a vehicle accident may become formalized through civil court proceedings, or may be resolved through an informal settlement before a lawsuit is filed.
Vehicle accidents can include car accidents, boating accidents, motorcycle accidents, semi tractor trailer accidents and truck accidents, to name a few. Anyone injured by a drunk driver, or surviving family members of a person killed by a drunk driver, may be able to bring wrongful death charges against the defendant.
NEW JERSEY MEDICAL MALPRACTICE LAWYERS:
A medical malpractice attorney helps recover damages for the patient that was harmed because the medical care provider failed to meet the required standards of skill and care, in accordance with generally accepted standards. The prescribed standard of medical care may vary from state to state. A jury will consider the testimony of experts, usually other doctors, who will testify whether they believe your physician's actions followed standard medical practices, or fell below the accepted standard of care.
Medical care providers cannot guarantee the results of any medical treatment; therefore a patient's medical malpractice claim is not valid just because his or her treatment was not successful.

A person injured by a defective or dangerous product may be eligible to file a lawsuit for product liability, and recover damages under one of the following categories: strict product liability, negligence, or breach of warranty.
SLIP AND FALL/PREMISE LIABILITY:
Slip and fall injuries can happen anywhere.
