No injury is minor when it affects a person's quality of life. When you are harmed in an accident because of someone else's negligence, you are entitled to pursue legal action to obtain compensation for your personal injuries. At The Law Offices of David K. Cuneo, we have built a strong reputation for obtaining successful outcomes for clients and families of clients who have been injured because of someone else's negligence.
Injured On The Road
Motor vehicle accidents happen every day, even to the most attentive and experienced car, motorcycle or truck drivers. While many walk away from these accidents with minor injuries, most do not. Those who survive motor vehicle accidents are often left with serious injuries and permanent disabilities, including:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Chest injuries
- Pelvic and abdominal injuries
- Lower extremity injuries
- Chronic nerve pain
- Burns and scars
- Broken bones
Fighting for the compensation you deserve can be daunting to say the least, especially when you're already hurt and potentially missing work and facing lost income. At The Law Offices of David K. Cuneo, we can help you and your family claim compensation for your medical costs, rehabilitation therapy, and lost wages.
Injured On Someone Else's Property
Property owners are legally responsible to maintain their property and address any hazardous conditions. Unfortunately, they don't always do that, resulting in slip-and-fall accidents can result in serious injury to an unsuspecting victim.
If you or a loved one is injured in a slip-and-fall injury, you may be able to hold the negligent party responsible for medical costs, lost wages and other damages resulting from the injury.
Injured By A Defective Product
Whether from a design or a manufacturing flaw, sometimes products on the market cause injury to people who had a reasonable expectation that the product would be safe. Whether the product is a medication or an airbag or a child's toy, people injured by a defective product can sue for the resulting costs of recovering from that injury.
Injured On A Bike
In most cases, the bicyclists are not at fault in an accident with a car — drivers are. Some accidents are unavoidable collisions due to extenuating circumstances. But when a driver injures or kills a bicyclist due to carelessness, negligence, or disobeying the law, they are responsible for the cost of the injured party's medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. In some cases pot holes, uneven road surfaces and debris can cause a bicycle accident. In these cases, the local municipality, city or state responsible for the roadway could be held liable.
Injured By A Dog
Injuries from dog bites can be very serious, often leaving physical and emotional scars. Regardless of the location of the dog bite, tissue damage, nerve damage, injuries to ligaments and tendons and even broken bones from a bite can require surgery, stitches, prescription medication, physical therapy, and even psychological therapy for post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In New Jersey, it is the dog owner's responsibility to properly enclose, restrain, and control their pet. Failing to do so leaves them liable and responsible for the cost of medical treatment for the person who has been bitten.
