NJ Personal Injury Attorneys

Committed to Protecting the Rights of People who have been Hurt in Preventable Accidents

People are injured in preventable accidents on a daily basis throughout New Jersey and the rest of the country. In many of these cases, victims are simply going about their daily lives when a sudden and unexpected accident results in serious injury. In some cases, the injuries that victims of these kinds of accidents sustain result in long-term medical conditions or even disabilities that can affect them profoundly for the rest of their lives. Fortunately, in many cases, victims are entitled to significant financial recovery under New Jersey law.

At Cozzi & Cozzi Counsellors at Law, we aggressively represent the rights of individuals who have been hurt in serious accidents. As experienced litigators, we recognize when insurance companies are trying to settle a case for less that it is worth and are dedicated to getting each client we represent the full and fair value of his or her claim. Call us today for more information about getting compensation for your injuries 201-450-1505.

Personal injury cases can arise from any type of accident that can be caused by the negligence of another person or party. Some examples of the kinds of personal injury cases that we regularly handle are listed below:

These and other kinds of accidents can leave victims with extremely serious injuries, including broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, dislocations, amputation, and spinal cord injuries. Even in less serious cases, victims can incur significant medical expenses and be unable to return to work for weeks or even months. For this reason, it is absolutely imperative that anyone injured in an accident seek medical attention immediately and retain legal counsel as soon as possible in order to ensure that his or her legal rights are protected. Failing to do either could potentially jeopardize your right to recover compensation.

Compensation for Injury Claims

After an accident, many victims are confused, upset, and are concerned about how they are going to pay for their medical expenses and make up for the income they lose from being unable to work. New Jersey law entitles individuals who have been injured by the negligence of others to recover compensation for both their economic and non-economic losses, including the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Property damage
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Loss of consortium (for spouses of victims)
  • Costs associated with ongoing medical and rehabilitative care

It is critical to understand that accurately assessing the value of a personal injury case is extremely difficult for people who do not have experience in this area of law. Consequently, many personal injury victims dramatically undervalue the amount of compensation that they could potentially receive and accept the first offer made by the insurance company representing the at-fault party. It is highly discouraged to accept any settlement offer without first speaking to an attorney. We offer free consultations to accident victims and, if you choose to retain us, will not collect any legal fees from you unless we successfully recover compensation on your behalf.

If you have been hurt in an accident, our lawyers can be of assistance in a number of ways, including the following:

  • Advise you as to whether or not you have a legal claim
  • Negotiate on your behalf with the insurance company handling your case
  • Collect evidence that supports your assertion that your accident was caused by someone else's negligence
  • File a lawsuit on your behalf
  • Represent you in any legal proceedings that may occur
