Don’t Choose Health Insurance for Auto Accident Related Bills

I had previously done a blog entry entitled auto insurance 101 in which I discussed the basic considerations in selecting the right auto insurance policy for you and your family.  Some recent client experiences show me that the average consumer needs even more information when considering auto insurance options. When purchasing auto insurance, your agent […]

CPS (Chronic Pain Sucks)

Chronic Pain Syndrome (CPS) is a debilitating condition with effects beyond the physical.  To never be able to escape the pain, at rest or asleep, is a fact of life for chronic pain sufferers.  The harsh reality for these victims is often a life of depression and anxiety, riddled with doctors’ visits and medications aimed […]

The Duty of a Commercial vs. Residential Property Owner

Most people don’t understand the law of premises liability.  We, as homeowners, have a different duty, or responsibility than owners of a commercial property like a casino or restaurant. Generally, the law in New Jersey is that a residential property owner has no duty to fix his/her sidewalk if it is in disrepair.  However, once […]

A Picture’s Worth a Thousand Words

When you are injured by another’s negligence, nothing you may later say about what happened will be as descriptive or as useful as photographs showing the dangerous condition of the property causing your fall or the condition of the car immediately after it was hit.  Similarly, any evidence that may soon disappear – the spilled […]

Don’t Lien On Me

It’s a requirement in New Jersey that all drivers have auto insurance.  Our system of medical bill payment for crash related injuries is called “No-fault”, which means that, regardless of fault, your own company pays your medical treatment expenses for injuries you get in an accident.  Makes sense, right?  Why else do you pay all […]

Doctors Make Mistakes Just Like The Rest Of Us

While doctors know a lot about medicine, they do not know any more about the law than the average Joe or Jane.  This fact became painfully clear to my client, Carol, the other day when she appeared for her “independent” medical examination scheduled by her auto insurance company. It should be noted that nothing about […]

Are You My Lawyer?

As a victim of someone else’s negligence, one of the last things you need on your plate is having to play “Where’s Waldo?” to find and communicate with your lawyer.  You hired your lawyer to simplify your life after the crash or fall causing your injuries.  To have to chase your lawyer or her/his assistant […]

Knowing Where You’re Going

Other than severely depressed people, who walks with their head down?  Not you or me.  Yet, that is usually the first line of attack the attorney defending the premises liability claim will use to try to prove it was your carelessness that caused you to trip and fall and not the dangerous condition of the […]
