Aggressive Personal Injury Lawyers Fight to Secure Fair Compensation for Clients in Camden County, Burlington County and Throughout New Jersey
When you have been hurt in an accident, you might soon find yourself in a precarious financial situation.

Common Examples of Personal Injury Claims
Personal injury law is designed to hold careless people financially accountable for their actions (or omissions) that hurt innocent parties. Some common examples of circumstances that could give rise to an actionable personal injury lawsuit include:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Mass transit accidents, including NJ Transit bus and train accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Work accidents
- Construction accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Premises liability
- Defective and dangerous products
- Dog bites and animal attacks
- Workers’ Compensation
Proving your right to compensation in a personal injury lawsuit can be complicated by a number of factors. The type of proof needed will depend upon how you were hurt. For example, companies that sell unreasonably dangerous products can be held strictly liable—so your lawyer will work to prove that:
- The product was unreasonably dangerous, and
- You did not make any changes to the product after purchase
Most motor vehicle accident claims require a showing of negligence. Negligence in the personal injury context is another word for carelessness. To recover compensation, an experienced personal injury lawyer will present evidence to show that the at-fault driver made some type of mistake that caused your accident and injuries (in other words, that the driver breached the duty to drive safely).
Fighting to Win Fair Compensation for Accident Victims Across New Jersey
Even if it seems fairly clear that someone else caused your injuries, your right to compensation is not automatic. In fact, you should be skeptical if an insurance company proactively approaches you to offer a settlement award. Speaking with an experienced personal injury lawyer who is on your side is the best way to make sure you get fair compensation.
Our trusted personal injury lawyers at Gelman Law, LLC are strong advocates for our clients.
We negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf, using our strong persuasive skills to win the maximum compensation possible. We work with you—taking the time to find out how the accident and injuries have changed your life so that we can fight for a compensation award that accounts for every detail.
Remember, a fair and full compensation award should account for the following:
- Past and future medical expenses, including hospital bills and ongoing medical treatment costs
- Past and future lost wages
- Loss of your ability to earn a living
- Physical therapy, rehab and any ongoing treatment needs unique to your injuries
- Pain and suffering
- Diminished quality of life
- Emotional distress
- Loss of your loved one’s company if the accident resulted in wrongful death
The job of the insurance adjuster is to minimize the value of your claim. Even if you are making a claim for compensation under your own policy, it’s important to have a knowledgeable lawyer in your corner.
