There’s no personal injury case we haven’t handled and will fight for the compensation you deserve. You can read more about the personal injury cases we handle below.

Auto & Truck Crashes

A car accident can leave a lasting impact on your life both physically and mentally. Whether you suffer minor or major injuries, the outcome of the crash could lead to psychological injuries such as post-traumatic stress disorder. You might not be able to get behind the wheel of a vehicle for months after the crash. Or, you might not be able to drive past the scene of the crash ever again. With driver inattention and impairment increasing each year, the severity of crashes seems to be getting worse. If you or a loved one is injured in a New Jersey car or truck accident, it’s imperative you speak with an injury attorney immediately.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is a serious issue that affects thousands of people every year in New Jersey. You should feel safe and comfortable when visiting your doctor. You shouldn’t have to worry about what he or she might do wrong when caring for you or performing surgery on a loved one. However, this is not always the case. Too many times a doctor or nurse will make a mistake that causes you to suffer additional injuries or lead to a delayed diagnosis. If you feel you’ve been the victim of medical malpractice, you deserve compensation for your injuries with the help of an injury lawyer.

Nursing Home Abuse

Making the decision to move an elder parent into a nursing home is never easy. It doesn’t mean you’ve failed as their child. It simply means that they require a certain level of care and attention that you cannot provide them for whatever reason. What makes the situation worse is when your loved one suffers abuse at the hands of a nursing home employee. Be sure you look for the signs of nursing home abuse whenever you visit or talk to your loved one. These include becoming withdrawn, not answering questions when an employee is in the room, bedsores, bruises, unexplained trips to the hospital and more.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Some of the most common personal injury cases we handle at Rossetti & DeVoto, PC are slip and fall accidents. These accidents can happen anywhere, including at home, at a neighbor’s house, at school, at work, at a store, at a doctor’s office, and on public property. A slip and fall accident, while it might not look bad, can lead to serious injuries. Many victims suffer broken bones, head trauma, and even impalement. If you suffer an injury due to a slip and fall accident you can recover compensation if the hazard was known by the property owner and they failed to fix the issue.

Wrongful Death

The death of a loved one is never easy. It can become unbearable when your loved one is ripped away from you due to the negligence of another person, which is what’s known as wrongful death. These cases often stem from car accidents, defective products, work-related accidents, and acts of violence. Why should you have to pay for the medical, funeral, and burial costs of your loved one when they didn’t die from natural causes or a lengthy battle with a disease or other illness? An accident lawyer from Rossetti & DeVoto, PC will be able to examine the case and determine who can be held responsible for the wrongful death of your loved one.

Unsafe & Defective Products

All too often there are news reports of a product being recalled for failing to operate properly or for creating some type of hazard, such as a fire hazard. Defective products can cause significant injuries and even death. That’s why it’s important to be on the lookout for product recalls at all times. However, not all products are recalled before they wind up hurting consumers. An injury attorney from Rossetti & DeVoto, PC can explain how the legal process works when seeking compensation from a product manufacturer, retailer, designer or advertiser. 

Birth Injury & Cerebral Palsy

Finding out that you are pregnant, or that your wife is going to have a baby, is one of the most magical times in life. Your joy can quickly turn to anguish if your baby suffers a birth injury during delivery or in the moments following birth. Cerebral palsy is one of the most common birth injuries and can lead to a lifetime of medical care and treatment that costs tens of thousands of dollars. An injury lawyer can help you understand the road you have ahead as a family and work to recover compensation for your baby’s injuries so they receive the best care possible.

Brain & Spinal Cord Injuries

Brain and spinal cord injuries will change your life in an instant. Whether you suffer such an injury in a motorcycle accident, in a construction accident or an accident in someone’s home; you will want to speak to an accident lawyer from Rossetti & DeVoto, PC about what happened. Brain and spinal cord injuries can be so devastating that you suffer paralysis or need to learn how to perform daily activities all over again. You might also need to renovate your home to make it wheelchair accessible or hire a nurse to help care for you or your loved one. None of these expenses should come out of your pocket when the injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence.

Construction Site Accidents

Construction site accidents are most often preventable. How? All it takes is a little effort to follow safety guidelines put in place by the construction firm and always wearing personal protective equipment to prevent an accident. However, construction accidents still happen because some sites do not follow safety procedures and some workers do not take safety as a priority. Construction accidents can lead to brain and spinal cord injuries, amputation, paralysis, blindness, hearing loss, broken bones, burns, and other serious injuries. It’s important for you to attend safety briefings when held, wear your protective gear at all times, and report any hazardous conditions to a supervisor when working on a construction site.

Claims Against Public Entities/Title 59

Not everyone who causes you to suffer an injury will be a private citizen. There are times where the defendant might be a public employee. Making a claim against a public entity, also known as Title 59, can be challenging. The help of a New Jersey injury lawyer from Rossetti & DeVoto, PC can make all the difference. Our team has successfully handled cases for clients against school boards, police departments, hospitals, public transportation entities, county governments, and other public entities. These claims often arise from dangerous conditions on public property or in public buildings that have not been resolved.

Dog & Animal Bites

Dogs are not everyone’s best friends. Why? Many people had traumatic experiences with dogs when they were younger. Others simply do not like animals for one reason or another. Whatever the case, if you are attacked by a dog you have every right to seek compensation from the dog’s owner for your injuries. Understand that even if the bite does not break your skin, you should still go to the doctor to seek medical attention. Having medical records to support your personal injury claim will make the case easier for your injury lawyer to prove.

Negligent Security

Do you tend to work late at night? If so, do you feel safe being alone in the building? Do you feel safe when you walk to your car in the parking garage? If not, and you suffer an injury, you might be able to seek compensation for your injuries due to negligent security. Negligent security can happen at any property you visit with the permission of the property owner. These cases often arise due to a lack of lighting, lack of security guards, a lack of locking doors, and more. Negligent security cases can involve casinos, apartments, bars, landlords, business owners, and security companies.

The team from Rossetti & DeVoto, PC is here to answer all of your questions, guide you in the right direction, and help you understand the complexities of the law when dealing with an injury caused by a construction accident, a car accident, a slip and fall, negligent security, dog bite attacks, wrongful death and more. An accident lawyer from our firm will ensure that your rights are protected, you have a clear understanding of the law, and receive the proper amount of compensation to pay for your medical expenses, funeral expenses, pain and suffering, and property damage.
