Bergen County, New Jersey has one of the most diverse populations in the New York Metropolitan Area, not surprising because it is just across the Hudson River from Manhattan. This proximity makes Bergen County a desirable place to live in terms of commutation to high-paying jobs and to New York City’s theatres, restaurants, shops, museums, and events. In addition to being one of the highest-income counties in the country, Bergen boasts 9,000 acres of parks, the beautiful cliffs of the Palisades, the Ramapo Mountains, the Hackensack and Passaic Rivers — all of which provide a welcome alternative to urban excitement. Unfortunately, no matter how convenient and pleasant Bergen County is, residents here are plagued by the ills faced by all human beings, including serious personal injuries.

It is especially terrible to confront the consequences of physical harm when it results from the negligence, recklessness, or malice of someone else. If you have suffered a disabling injury for which another is at fault, you are entitled to substantial compensation for your trauma and its aftermath. In order to receive the damages you deserve, however, you will need a powerful, highly skilled personal injury attorney.

Workers’ Compensation

If you have suffered an injury at your workplace due to a dangerous condition that should have been noticed and repaired, some of your expenses will no doubt be paid by workers’ comp.

Damages Our Bergen County Personal Injury Attorney Will Work Diligently To Obtain

There are three kinds of damages we may be able to win for you and your loved ones:

  • Economic compensation is for medical and rehabilitation treatment, lost income (present and future), property damage, assistive devices (e.g. wheelchair, cane), home healthcare, and/or alterations to your home to accommodate your disability.
  • Non-economic compensation is designed to cover intangibles like physical pain, mental anguish, scarring or other disfigurements, permanent disability, loss of consortium, and/or loss of enjoyment of life.
  • Punitive damages are only awarded if the intention or egregious recklessness caused your injury, as in a DUI accident or in a physical assault. If someone attacked you, you can sue for punitive damages whether or not that person was convicted of a crime.
