Why You Need a Hackensack Injury Attorney

You deserve strong legal advocates who will fight hard for your recovery of economic losses and pain and suffering. Let the attorneys at The Rothenberg Law Firm handle everything while you focus on healing. Backed by a team of lawyers, investigators, and independent experts, we will get right to work for you:
  • Investigating your case. Understanding the facts surrounding your case is critical to your success. This means visiting the site, reviewing any and all reports, talking to witnesses, and determining who was involved in the accident and how the accident occurred.
  • Establishing liability. Often, multiple parties share the blame for causing an injury. In addition to those directly involved in the incident, other entities or third parties including manufacturers, management companies, and business owners may be liable for your injuries.
  • Developing a theory of negligence. Four elements are required to establish negligence. Your injuries may be evident, but in order to bring a personal injury claim you need to establish the existence of a duty of care, a breach of that duty and causation leading to your injuries. You need a lawyer to help you determine if you have a case.
  • Negotiating your claim. Many times, injury cases are resolved through a mutual settlement agreement. Our attorneys understand what it takes to negotiate with insurance companies and lawyers alike.
  • Litigating your case. If negotiations fail to yield a fair offer of settlement, we are prepared to file a lawsuit and take your matter to court. Sometimes the threat of a trial may lead to a settlement, but not always. Therefore, if we can not get you the settlement you deserve, we are always prepared to take your case to trial to obtain a successful verdict on your behalf.
