A wide array of legal services for the injured

With a comprehensive offering of personal injury legal services, we serve New Jersey with our aggressive brand of legal representation that does not lose sight of client care. We are litigators, and we do not back down from a challenge as we take on injury cases from the following types of negligence.

Catastrophic personal injury

We represent individuals who have sustained serious injuries in accidents caused by someone else’s negligence. After these types of accidents, the injured person may be able to take legal action against those responsible for causing the injuries and recover compensation.

A catastrophic injury is one that leaves a person with devastating health and mobility challenges that require ongoing medical attention and care, and do not allow the individual to work or resume  his or her normal life activities. At Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow, we understand what it costs to provide medical services and home care for someone who barely survived a tragic accident. We fight to recover the maximum compensation so that you and your family’s needs will be met into the future.

The following are a few examples of the types of personal injury cases we handle:

Truck accidents

Commercial trucking accidents involving tractor-trailers and passenger vehicles can be deadly and they can lead to life-altering, catastrophic injuries. At Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow, some of the trucking accident cases we handle include:

  • Uninsured / Underinsured Driver (UM/UIM)
  • Negligent Hiring
  • Drunk or Distracted Driver
  • Drowsy/ Fatigued Drivers/HOS Violations
  • Defective Equipment

Car accidents

In 2017, car accidents and other motor vehicle accidents claimed the lives of 591 people and caused injuries to 61,753. We help clients who have sustained serious injuries in car accidents that have caused them to incur medical expenses and lose time from work after the following types of incidents:

Construction injuries and worksite injury claims

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) estimates that workers in the construction industry comprise about 4% of total employment in the United States, but the number of deaths in the construction industry accounted for about 21% of all worker deaths. Whether your serious injury is from one of what the Department of Labor calls the “fatal four” injuries which includes falls, being struck by an object, electrocutions, or getting caught in or between an object, the BLS estimates that nearly every construction worker will have at least one work-related injury in  his or her  lifetime.  Some of the construction accident cases we handle include, but are not limited to:

Some workers who sustain workplace injuries do not qualify for workers’ compensation benefits, but they can still recover compensation for workplace injuries in a third-party personal injury lawsuit. Our New Jersey workplace injury lawyers can represent your interests. Some of the Workplace Injuries cases we handle include but are not limited to:

Product liability

Product manufacturers owe a duty of care to the consumers who purchase their products to produce safe products that work as advertised. Sometimes, a product is defective in the design, manufacturing, or in the marketing of a product, or failure to warn consumers of the inherent dangers of the product. Those who have suffered an injury after using a defective product such as a faulty defibrillator, or after having taken a defective drug that caused injurious side effects may have grounds for a product liability lawsuit against the product manufacturer. At Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow, large corporations and massive pharmaceutical companies do not intimidate us from fighting for our clients’ best interests in court. Some of the Product Liability cases we handle include but are not limited to:

Medical malpractice and birth injuries

Last year, New Jersey paid out $267,913,250 in medical malpractice verdicts and settlements. About 34% of medical malpractice payouts were for diagnostic errors such as failure to timely diagnose cancer, 22% were for surgical errors such as anesthesia errors, or “never events” such as retained surgical tools, and 19% were for treatment errors. About 20% of medical mistakes caused major permanent injury, and another 18% caused significant permanent injury, while 30% of medical mistakes resulted in patient death.

Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow, LLP handles complex medical malpractice and birth injury claims, including:

Business torts and consumer fraud

When a business suffers economic losses because of the intentional or negligent actions of another, the injured party may be able to take legal action in the form of a claim for a business tort against the responsible party. We routinely handle claims involving tortious interference, theft of trade secrets, fraudulent misrepresentation, and so forth, for our business clients.

The skilled New Jersey consumer fraud attorneys at Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow are here to be strong advocates for clients who have been victims of consumer fraud. Whether it was identity theft, insurance fraud, mortgage fraud, claims involving internet privacy, or any other attempt to exploit or victimize consumers, New Jersey law provides strong consumer protections which allow consumers to pursue compensation for their losses through individual suits and class-action lawsuits.
