New Jersey Personal Injury
When you are hurt as the result of someone else’s negligence, then you have been a victim of personal injury. Personal injury is a legal term used to describe all bodily and emotional damage a person may suffer. If you suffered a personal injury because another party behaved carelessly or recklessly, then you may be entitled to compensation.
If you have been hurt do to the negligence of another, contact us today at (732) 514-6635 to speak with an attorney about your situation.
What is Negligence?
In order to determine whether or not you will be able to make a successful personal injury case, you need to understand the concept of negligence. If your injury was caused by another party’s negligence, then you may have a valid claim.
Negligence is most generally described as acting in a careless manner, such that another individual or party is harmed as a result. We all owe other people a duty of care, meaning that we should act in safe and reasonably careful ways. A breach of this duty is considered to be negligence.
Types of Damages
In a successful personal injury case, you may be awarded damages, or monetary compensation. There are two main types of damages that may be won – compensatory and punitive damages.
Compensatory damages are awarded in order to directly compensate you for your losses. Typically, compensation for medical bills, lost wages, damaged property, and pain and suffering are included.
Punitive damages, on the other hand, serve the purpose of punishing the offender and deterring him or her from taking the same line of action in the future.

The Dangers of Dog Bites
A dog bite is an unexpected and traumatic experience for any person to go through. Anyone who has been bitten by a dog may experience post-traumatic stress disorder, emotional problems, fear of dogs, and be forced to undergo physical rehabilitation and reconstructive surgery.
Over 43,000 facial injuries a year are the result of dog attacks – many of which necessitate medical attention. If the dog has a disease such as rabies, then you run a high risk of suffering from it, as well.
New Jersey Dog Bite Law
There is not one specific breed of dog that is the most dangerous; any type of dog is capable of attacking a human. Even the dog of a family member or friend may attack a familiar face. It is the responsibility of the dog owner to be in charge of his or her animal at all times. This includes having the control to prevent an attack. New Jersey law holds all dog owners responsible for any damage their animals cause to others, even if the canine had never before exhibited dangerous behavior.

New Jersey Premises Liability
Under premises liability law, owners of commercial properties where we shop, work and live are required by law to provide adequate security for their customers. This includes fixing or notifying you of any known hazards as well as securing the area from dangerous persons.

The LAW OFFICES OF GREGG A. WILLIAMS can help you determine if you have been injured due to inadequate security or have a cause of action against a property owner. If you have suffered a security-related injury on another party’s property, then contact us at (732) 514-6635 or click here.
What is premises liability?
A premises liability action, most commonly known as a “slip and fall” accident, is a claim brought against a negligent property owner. Most slip and fall accidents happen in commercial locations, such as grocery stores, gas stations, and office buildings, but they can also occur on private property.
Premises liability claims may also be made against property owners who fail to provide adequate security on the premises. Property owners generally have the responsibility of anticipating hazards and should be responsible for maintaining their premises in a safe condition. All too often, however, they clean up or fix the danger only after an injury occurs, thus removing the “evidence”.
Common Premises Liability Claims
The LAW OFFICES OF GREGG A. WILLIAMS can help you with your premises liability claim. We have experience in a variety of premises liability cases, including:
- Slip and Fall
- Elevator/Escalator Injuries
- Porch Collapse
- Lead Paint Poisoning

Premises security claims can be difficult and it must be shown that the owners’ negligence caused the injury. In order to prove negligence, it must be determined that the owner knew, or should have known, that there was a dangerous condition and did not take action to correct it.

Types of Brain Injuries
Some head injuries may cause severe and/or permanent damage to the brain. Under certain circumstances, this damage may eventually be reversed, but unfortunately, they often result in some serious form of permanent impairment:
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Memory Loss
- Brain Damage
- Sensory Loss
Skull fractures and skull penetration are the obvious causes of brain injuries, but brain damage can also result from a “closed head injury.” If the brain is bruised due to physical force, blood vessels can break and cause bleeding around the brain. The brain can also be damaged if it swells and presses against the bones of the skull, or if it is deprived of oxygen.

Motorcycle accident victims require special attention.
You’re enjoying a beautiful sunny day on the open road, clearing your mind of all the things that make up our daily grind and all of a sudden a car approaching from the opposite direction or from a side street pulls out in front of you like you weren’t even there. And doesn’t it seem that instances such as this seem to happen more and more frequently every time you take the bike out of the garage?
As the traffic on our roads in New Jersey become more and more congested, the incidence of accidents involving motorcycles seems to be on the rise. This combined drivers who are sometime inattentive due to cell phone use makes taking that ride to release some stress, quite a bit more stressful.
Here, at the LAW OFFICES OF GREGG A. WILLIAMS we specialize in representing motorcycle accident victims. From our extensive experience we know the special considerations necessary to properly represent a rider who has been injured by another motorist. Unlike typical motor vehicle collisions, there are unique issues regarding payment for medical expenses and income continuation benefits. Also, care must also be taken to properly prepare these cases for trial as there is often a bias against motorcycle enthusiasts involved in a collision even though the rider has done absolutely nothing wrong. This means that the proper presentation of facts to a jury can be critical to the overall success of these types of cases. Having an attorney who enjoys riding himself makes for a more effective advocate on the injured rider’s behalf.
Aside from avoiding an accident altogether, the most important thing you can do is to make sure you have proper insurance coverage in place in the unfortunate event that an accident occurs. These include making sure that there is coverage for medical expenses, property damage and adequate personal injury protection in place for yourself in the event that the person who causes the collision does not have enough insurance to provide the victim with full compensation for the harm they caused. One of the services we offer to all riders out there is a free review of their insurance policies so that our friends who ride can know what coverage they have in place in order to determine if they have adequate protection for themselves. If you wish to take advantage of this free service, just call our main number or our office nearest you.
