- Defective products– From dangerous drugs and cars made with worn parts to hazardous toys and broken appliances, countless numbers of people are injured by defective products every year. There were almost 195,000 cases across the country in 2020 where someone died after experiencing adverse effects from prescription drugs, according to the FDA. A product liability attorney in Roseland can help you file a claim for compensation if you’ve been injured by a defective product.
- On-the-job injuries– The Bureau of Labor Statistics says that private employers in New Jersey reported 69,000 nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses in 2019. Many of these injuries are the result of employers actively or passively failing to make safety a priority, which results in unsafe working conditions. A Roseland workers’ compensation lawyer can help you get the benefits you’re entitled to for your medical bills and lost wages.
- Medical malpractice– Medical errors are now the third-leading cause of death in the United States, according to a 2016 study. These errors run the gamut from medication mistakes and botched lab tests to wrong-site surgeries and incorrect diagnoses.
- Premises liability injuries– When landlords get careless or negligent, tenants and guests can suffer serious harm as a result. Failing to repair broken stairwells or guardrails, not cleaning up spilled liquids, leaving loose electrical cords around, and other forms of neglect can cause accidents that may result in serious injuries.
