No one asks to be injured. We live each day taking life's pleasures for granted, never expecting that someone else's lapse in judgment or negligence could injure us and rrevocably and drastically alter the rest of our lives in a split second. If you've been injured, you may be confined to bed, unable to work and unable to provide for yourself and your family. You may no longer enjoy recreational activities with your family and friends, or feel up to taking a long flight to that vacation spot. You can no longer walk or sit for any length of time because of your injury and no longer enjoy shopping. Getting out of bed, into the shower or tub, or even reaching up for a glass is painful for you now. You may have headaches, dizziness, blurriness or even forgetfulness. You can't get comfortable in bed and a good night's sleep is a fond memory. You may need to undergo complicated surgery for your injuries that may leave you with plates, screws, or other hardware in your body for the rest of your life and other permanent physical limitations and accompanying pain and suffering.

If you have suffered an injury at the hands of another, the wrongful party can be held legally responsible to compensate you for all of your economic damages, such as medical bills and lost wages and for non-economic damages such as pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life. Large and small companies who cause injuries to another will make every effort to prevent you from recovering for your injuries. They do this largely through insurance carriers, insurance defense counsel who represent them and through the doctors the insurance carriers "hire" to examine you for the sole purpose of concluding that you were likely never injured in the first place due to their client's negligence.

Our New Jersey New York metro area firm is fully familiar with the ever-increasing web of laws designed to defeat your claim. If you believe that you have been injured through the wrongful act of another, please contact our offices immediately to discuss your options and how to pursue them. Any delay in pursuing your claim may prevent you from seeking compensation. At the New Jersey New York metro area firm of Gruber, Schwartz & Posnock, LLP, our initial consultation with you is designed to fully evaluate and understand the facts of your case, the extent of your injuries, and what needs to be done in order to obtain the best possible result for you. We will spend time with you so that we can thoroughly evaluate your claim and provide you with our assessment of what you can expect going forward with us through all stages of your case including trial. At the same time, you will have an opportunity to get to know us, and evaluate our approach to your case as well as our skill and experience. We will answer all of your questions and provide you with a wealth of information relevant to your specific situation.

Protect your rights if you have been injured through the wrongful act or another. Don't delay. Call us today at one of our convenient New Jersey & New York metro area locations for an appointment.

We look forward to being your partner in obtaining justice and the compensation that you deserve.
