Proving negligence to help your personal injury case

The key to a personal injury case is your lawyer’s ability to prove that another party’s negligence caused you harm. At Gelman Gelman Wiskow & McCarthy LLC, we have a vast network of outside resources who help us build your case. Your lawyer may work with an investigator or an expert witness to build a case through photographic evidence, witness statements and previously filed complaints. For every lawsuit, we exercise due diligence to ensure that the case is strong.

A history of successfully obtaining compensation in New Jersey

We understand how difficult it can be to manage your everyday affairs when you’re injured. When your personal injury is severe enough to limit your mobility or your ability to perform your job duties, you may need additional resources to help you pay your bills. Gelman Gelman Wiskow & McCarthy LLC has been helping clients in New Jersey obtain the compensation they need for more than 60 years. We may be able to help you recover damages for pain and suffering, medical bills, and lost wages.

Moving quickly to protect your rights

It’s important that you reach out to our lawyers as soon as you can following your personal injury. In NJ, most personal injury cases have a two-year statute of limitations, which means you have to file a lawsuit within two years of the accident. If you wait too long, you may lose the chance to seek fair and just compensation. This window applies to most personal injury cases, including automobile, truck and other motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall injuries, wrongful death, medical and other professional malpractice, and products liability claims. Although some personal injuries, such as those resulting from malpractice or products liability, may have special exceptions according to the Discovery Rule that allows you to initiate a case when you first discover the injury, it’s important to contact a Gelman Gelman Wiskow & McCarthy LLC lawyer as soon as possible.

An experienced personal injury lawyer will ensure that you file within the statute of limitations and guide you through the legal process in New Jersey.
