Red Bank Personal Injury Lawyers
Representing accident victims in Monmouth County, NJ
Located on the Navesink River in Monmouth County, the borough of Red Bank is about 25 miles away from the tip of Manhattan. Many New Jersey residents and visitors come to Red Bank for the arts and culture at places like the Count Basie Theater, the downtown restaurants and shopping, or waterfront parks.
Red Bank is just two miles off Exit 109 of the Garden State Parkway, with Route 35 and CR 520 passing through the borough.
Even with small town living, people can be careless and people can cause accidents. Unfortunately, even if you take every precaution and follow every law, you still can't protect yourself from the negligent behavior of other people. Although we can't undo your accident and injuries, we can work with you to ensure it never happens again. The Red Bank personal injury attorneys at Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow, LLP fight to secure accident victims like you the compensation they deserve.
Knowledgeable guidance for injury victims in Red Bank
An accident isn't over after your car is towed away from the scene, or after you're released from the emergency room. It can take weeks, months, or even years to completely heal from injuries incurred in a serious accident. Some people never recover – suffering permanent disability or wrongful death.
Physical healing is a difficult process, but it's also an emotionally taxing one. Patients can become easily overwhelmed and simply want to settle a claim and “get it over with.” Medical bills and financial obligations can quickly become untenable and the situation may feel hopeless. However, this is exactly where your legal team steps in to advocate and work for you – laying the groundwork for a successful claim that will give you and your family the financial resources to move forward.
No matter where you live – Red Bank, Monmouth County, throughout NJ – accidents can change your life in a fraction of a second. With hundreds of millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements, our attorneys have an established record of success, and if you've been injured in an accident, we'll put that experience to work for you. Our practice handles all types of serious personal injury cases, including:

We represent our clients with integrity and compassion, but we will also fight aggressively to secure for you the compensation to which you're entitled for your injuries. Our injury attorneys are dedicated to holding negligent parties responsible for their conduct.
Common personal injuries in New Jersey
Injuries from accidents can range from minor to catastrophic. However, any injury should be treated and documented by a medical professional. What may seem minor to you at the time could turn more serious in few days or a week, as tends to happen with soft tissue injuries, for example.
Catastrophic injuries are in their own category because they are life-changing injuries that cause significant and permanent physical trauma. These types of injuries can result in brain damage, paralysis, or limb loss.
Even though every injury is different, and every patient responds to an injury differently, our practice does see some of the same injuries frequently, including:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Breaks and fractures
- Soft tissue injuries, like whiplash
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Back and neck injuries
- Wrongful death
In a wrongful death action, you may be entitled to compensation if a loved one is killed due to the recklessness or negligence of another. Our lawyers can guide you through this process.
How a Red Bank personal injury attorney can help
After an accident and injury that wasn't your fault, it's common to search for information on legal and medical advice, as well as what to do next. Your first priority should always be procuring medical attention for yourself and your loved ones. Then, schedule a free consultation with one of our Monmouth County lawyers as soon as possible. There's no need to feel overwhelmed or nervous – here's what to expect when speaking to an injury attorney for the first time.
- Because there is a two-year statute of limitations on filing personal injury lawsuits in New Jersey, it's important you don't wait to consult with an attorney. Your attorney helps ensure you don't miss any filing deadlines.
- Your attorney will ask questions about the injuries you suffered at the time of the accident. They'll also want to know if you have any ongoing health issues or disabilities (chronic pain, scarring, physical therapy).
- Keep track of all your paperwork (police reports, medical bills and documents). Your attorneys will want to note the costs of your doctor visits, medications, therapies, and treatments you receive as a result of your injuries.
- It takes time to heal from serious injuries. You may have taken time off work after your accident and lost paychecks or other employee benefits. Your attorney can help recover these financial losses as well.
- Your lawyer will also speak to you about non-financial losses like pain and suffering. Many injury victims suffer from emotional distress and decreased quality of life.
