The Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle
Car accidents are among the leading causes of serious injuries in our region. More than 60,000 people face injuries from motor vehicle collisions in the state every year. Unlike the majority of U.S. states, New Jersey is a ‘no-fault’ jurisdiction. This means that most victims must first seek compensation for their injuries from their own insurance company. Specifically, through their personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. Though, there are also times when you can step outside of New Jersey’s no-fault system. A negligent party is liable for your accident if you sustained a ‘permanent injury’. This includes:
- Displaced fractures;
- Significant disfigurement;
- Significant scarring;
- Dismemberment (the loss of a body part);
- The loss of a fetus; or
An experienced New Jersey car accident lawyer is essential after an injury-causing accident.
Premises Liability Claims
Many different injuries encompass New Jersey’s premises liability laws. Most notably, this includes slip and fall accidents. Though, it can also include any other type of accident that occurred on the premises of a negligent business or property owner. When a property owner fails to take proper safety precautions, they are legally liable for resulting accidents. As premises liability claims are complex, victims should always hire a qualified attorney.
When you seek treatment from a medical professional, you have the expectation that you will receive high-quality care. Sadly, this does not always happen. At The Law Office Of Jordan B. Rickards, we have extensive experience holding negligent doctors, specialists, and healthcare providers legally liable for their misconduct.
Notably, we are uniquely equipped to bring New Jersey dental malpractice claims. Most law firms must outsource expert services in these cases. But our team consults with Dr. Robert R. Rickards.

Injured Victims Have a Limited Amount of Time to Take Legal Action
Following an accident, you have a limited amount of time to bring your personal injury claim. In New Jersey, the statute of limitations for most personal injury cases is two years from the date of the accident. Indeed, auto accident claims, medical malpractice cases, negligence claims, and product liability claims are subject to a two-year statute of limitations. If you fail to initiate your claim within this time frame, then you may lose out on your right to bring a claim at all.
Beyond New Jersey’s statutory requirements, you also need to act quickly to ensure that you will be able to bring the strongest possible case. The sooner you get an experienced personal injury lawyer by your side, the sooner your lawyer will be able to begin investigating your claim and gathering important evidence. The bottom line is clear: To best protect your legal rights, you should speak to a personal injury attorney immediately after an accident.
Injured Victims Deserve Fair Compensation
If an accident in New Jersey caused you injuries, you deserve compensation for your damages. Unfortunately, full and fair compensation is often out of reach for victims. Large insurance companies work aggressively to protect their own bottom line. They train their insurance adjusters to try to save the company money whenever possible. Usually, they do this by reducing the value of settlement offers. Whether you are dealing with your own auto insurance company, an opposing auto insurance company, or an insurer representing a business, you need to be ready to fight for every penny they owe. At The Law Office Of Jordan B. Rickards, our legal team knows how to hold insurance companies accountable. We help victims fight for compensation for:
