Injuries can lead to serious changes in your life, including the inability to work or pay your bills. When you are out of work due to any type of accident, let the team from Rossetti & DeVoto, PC put their experience to work for you. There’s almost no type of personal injury case that 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, bus or truck accident can leave a lasting impact on your life both physically and mentally. When you suffer major physical injuries, the outcome of the crash often leads to psychological injuries such as post-traumatic stress disorder or anxiety. 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, comfortable and confident when visiting your doctor. Most doctors and nurses provide us with outstanding care.  And there are complications to all procedures that occur even with the best of care. Unfortunately, there are times when a doctor or nurse will make a critical mistake and deviate from accepted care standards causing you to suffer serious injuries, delayed diagnosis or death. Many times the deviations are careless and could have been prevented.  We work with a team of medical experts to uncover what went wrong. These cases are complex, expensive and hard-fought by the medical community, who guard their own reputations. In order to provide the best service and resources for our clients, we handle only serious injury and death cases caused by medical and hospital malpractice. If you feel you’ve been the victim of medical malpractice, and you or a loved one are seriously injured, we are here to get you justice and the compensation you deserve compensation.

Nursing Home Abuse

Making the decision to move an elder parent into a nursing home is never easy.  Loved ones often feel guilty about not being able to provide the care on their own.  But the reality is that older people often require a certain level of care and attention that you cannot be provided by untrained family members.  And nothing makes this difficult situation worse than when your loved one suffers abuse and neglect at the hands of a nursing home and its employees. Be sure to look for the signs of nursing home abuse and neglect 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

At Rossetti & DeVoto, PC, we have handled many slip and fall accidents. These accidents can literally happen anywhere, including in parking lots, at supermarkets, restaurants, stores and malls, commercial office buildings and residential communities. A slip and fall accident can occur because of defective and hazardous conditions of property caused by construction and contractor errors, poor maintenance and snow and ice.  These unexpected falls often lead to serious fractures and head injuries. Business owners and store owners typically have the greatest responsibility to make their properties safe for the customers. If you suffer a serious fracture or injury due to a slip and fall at a business, we would like to discuss your case.

Wrongful Death

The death of a loved one is always unbearable, but even more so when your loved one is taken away from you due to negligent and careless acts of others.  Wrongful death cases can arise from any type of negligence case that results in death. What makes wrongful death cases different from other cases where only injuries occur, is the types of damages allowed under our Wrongful Death Act.  In New Jersey and Pennsylvania, the law does not allow for surviving family members to recover emotional pain and suffering for the loss of a loved one. This makes litigating damages in these cases unique and requires the lawyer to creatively present damages to show the true loss to the family.  Most often, as long as there are surviving dependents, the damages are limited to the deceased person’s conscious pain and suffering, lost wages to any dependents, medical bills, and lost services to the heirs such as guidance, advice, and companionship. The lawyers from Rossetti & DeVoto, PC have handled many serious wrongful death cases and will be able to investigate your case to determine who is 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 results of obstetrical medical malpractice.  In almost all cases, a lack of oxygen is the root cause of the initial brain injury and cerebral palsy. These birth injuries often lead to a lifetime of medical care and treatment that costs millions. We can help you understand what happened and 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 life care.

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, a construction accident or a fall on someone’s property, you will want to speak to an accident lawyer from Rossetti & DeVoto, PC about what happened. Brain and spinal cord injuries are devastating.  They require serious lawyers that understand the impact going forward, from ongoing medical and nursing care, to specially designed transport vehicles to redesigned homes, the expenses are staggering. Making defendants understand the damage they have done is our top priority. We leave nothing to chance and hire only the most qualified engineering and medical experts for your case to get you the best possible result.

Construction Site Accidents

Construction site accidents are almost always preventable. But it takes is a concerted effort by all contractors on a job site to follow the mandatory safety guidelines put in place by OSHA and the general contractor on the site.  Yet, construction accidents are still happening because some general contractors do not enforce the very safety procedures of their companies and instead, put profit over safety. Others hire the cheapest sub-contractors, knowing full well that the bid proposal was cheaper than other reputable contactors because they eliminated the cost of safety from their proposals.  As a result, construction accidents continue to happen, leading to death, brain and spinal cord injuries, amputation, paralysis, blindness, hearing loss, broken bones, and other serious injuries.  

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 Tort Claim case, can be challenging since there are many laws that protect and insulate public entities even when they are at fault. The help of 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.  We’ve even argued these cases to our Supreme Court and helped change the laws in our State.  

Dog & Animal Bites

Vicious dog bites can lead to physical and emotional scarring for life.  If you are attacked by a dog, seek immediate medical attention and report the dog bite to your local police who will make certain that the dog had all of its shots in addition to investigating the incident and obtaining all relevant information.  In New Jersey, a dog’s owner is responsible for any dog bites even if he never suspected the dog would bite. 

Negligent Security

One of the dirty secrets that business owners keep is the crime statistics committed against their own customers after they leave the premises.  After all, it would be bad for business. As a result, some establishments would rather hide the information than to alert and protect its customers.  While most business owners are not required to secure the outside of their premises, they are required to take protective measures when they know or have reason to know that crimes are being committed after patrons leave their establishment.  Negligent security can happen at any property you visit these cases most often arise in high crime areas involving casinos, apartment complexes, and bars. Experts in the field of security can determine whether better security measures would have helped thwart repeated crime.  This often includes better lighting, fencing, outside security guards, locking exterior doors, and random patrolling.

The team from Rossetti & DeVoto, PC is here to answer all of your questions, guide you in the right direction, and help you understand your case.  We have the resources and the experience to handle even the most complex injury cases 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 what we will do to fight for you so you receive the fair and full compensation for your injuries.
