Skilled New Jersey Law Firm Represents Accident Victims
Clifton personal injury attorneys handle truck, motorcycle and pedestrian cases
At Kassem and Associates, in Clifton, we take on even the most complex accident cases. New Jersey has a choice no-fault insurance system, whereby basic and standard policies require injured parties to recover losses from their own Personal Injury Protection (PIP), regardless of fault. We can guide you through the process of pursuing compensation for your injuries.
Experienced counsel for auto accident injuries
Car accident claims made under the choice no-fault system do not cover noneconomic damages like pain and suffering. However, New Jersey law allows broader recovery if the accident leads to:
- Loss of a body part
- Significant disfigurement or scarring
- Displaced fracture
- Loss of a fetus
- Permanent injury to bodily function
In those cases, lawsuits can be filed directly against the at-fault driver. Kassem and Associates has the experience and legal knowledge to get favorable results in cases involving severe injuries.
ATV accident lawyers understand the complications
New Jersey law does not regulate all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). Accidents often take place on private property in unusual conditions because these vehicles are used recreationally, which gives insurance companies many ways to avoid liability. If you were injured in an ATV accident, our firm can advise you based on the specific circumstances.
Help after your truck or motorcycle accident
Accidents involving semi trucks can be extremely serious, with greater property damage and more severe injuries than other types of motor vehicle accidents. In addition, they may present complex issues of liability: the driver, truck owner and company hiring the truck may all be parties to the lawsuit. Because the injuries involved can be bigger and the cases more complicated, these situations need the attention of a firm with experience in the area. Our firm is committed to assisting clients after truck accidents result in an injury.
Motorcycle accidents can also cause grave injuries. New Jersey law requires helmets, but helmets do not prevent all injuries. Because motorcyclists are subject to certain rules that car drivers may not be aware of, determining liability for these serious injuries when such an accident occurs requires professional analysis. At Kassem and Associates, we know how to evaluate the injuries and liability issues surrounding motorcycle accidents.
Making the difference in pedestrian injury cases
You don’t need to be in a car to have your recovery options limited by car insurance. Pedestrians, whether they were walking, skateboarding, roller skating or bicycling, are included under PIP, although if your injuries are severe enough, you may be entitled to greater damage recovery. If you were involved in an accident with a car as a pedestrian, we can explain your rights and advise you regarding the best course of action to take.
