Automobile Accident

New York and New Jersey personal injury law firm representing victims of car accidents.

Handling automobile accidents in New Jersey can be complicated because New Jersey’s automobile insurance laws are extremely complex.  New York’s car insurance laws are not any easier to comprehend.

The attorneys at Mintz & Geftic understand the complex legal and insurance issues. We will explain how your own insurance policy can limit your rights to bring a lawsuit for personal injuries even if the other driver is 100% at fault. We will explain the importance of how uninsured and underinsurance coverage provided in your own policy can extend or limit your recovery if you are seriously injured.

Our attorneys will identify the parties responsible for your injury and file claims against the individual, partnership, corporation or any other entity responsible. We will vigorously fight for your rights to medical benefits and compensation for your injuries and for your pain and suffering.

Truck Accident

New York and New Jersey personal injury law firm representing victims of truck accidents

A large percentage of fatalities in motor vehicle accidents involve a truck. Every year thousands of motorists and truck drivers are either killed or seriously injured in accidents involving a truck. The accidents may be caused by driver error, the negligence of the trucking company, including mechanical failures, reckless driving, inadequate driver training and often driver fatigue.

Finding the precise cause can be difficult and time consuming. We will carefully examine the facts of each accident. We will retain experienced engineering experts to help determine which trucking regulations and Federal and State laws apply to each accident.

Our attorneys have over 100 years of experience in handling truck accident cases. We pride ourselves on honest, smart, responsive and aggressive representation.

Our attorneys will identify the parties responsible for your injury and file claims against the individual, partnership, corporation or any other entity. We will vigorously fight for your rights to medical benefits, full compensation for your injuries, and for your pain and suffering.

Motorcycle Accident

New York and New Jersey law firm helping victims of motorcycle accidents seek compensation.

As every biker knows, motorcycle accidents are a commonplace occurrence on the roads and highways of New York and New Jersey. Drivers often simply don't see motorcyclists, or they are not paying attention and may be distracted while driving. Frequently, collisions occur when other drivers cut off, bump, rear end or tip motorcyclists over. Despite the state's helmet law, these accidents can be catastrophic and life-changing.

In New Jersey, motorcyclists cannot avail themselves of the protection of personal injury protection (PIP) insurance. This means their insurance will not cover medical bills resulting from motorcycle accidents. A key issue in pursuing claims for this type of accident is determining whether coverage is available through the insurance of the driver who hit the motorcyclist.

At Mintz & Geftic, we have a proven track record of producing multi-million dollar recoveries for our clients who have been victims of vehicle accidents.

Rear End Accidents

New Jersey premier personal injury law firm providing assistance for victims of rear-end accidents.

Rear-end collisions can happen in the blink of an eye. They can happen anywhere, at any speed. Perhaps you were waiting at a stop sign or traffic light when another car slammed into you. Or perhaps you were on the highway in rush hour when traffic came to a sudden halt. Unfortunately, rear-end collisions can lead to lifelong injuries and long-term disabilities, and are oftentimes, fatal.

Rear-end collisions may be caused by distracted driving or texting while driving.

The types of cases that our motor vehicle accident lawyers handle include:

Brain Injuries and Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI); Bicycle Accidents; Bus Accidents; Drunk Driving Accidents; Distracted Driving; Garden State Parkway Accidents; Head-On Collisions; Hit and Run Accidents; Intersection Accidents; Side Impact Accidents; Motorcycle Accidents; Multi-Car Crash Accidents; New Jersey Turnpike Accidents; Rear-End Collisions; Rollover Accidents; Single-Car Accidents; Spinal Cord Injuries; Tractor Trailer Accidents; Uninsured/Underinsured Accidents; and Wrongful Death Accidents.

Seat Back Failure

Elizabeth, New Jersey's top accident lawyers helping victims of seat back failure.

Seat back failure is a serious defect in many vehicles that causes numerous injuries and fatalities every single year, often times to children. Seat back failure occurs when a car is rear-ended and the defective front seat breaks at the hinge, sending the occupant backwards into the seat behind them with great force and no restraint.

Rear-end collisions may be caused by distracted driving or texting while driving. Seat back failure can potentially make these types of accidents far more dangerous. At Mintz & Geftic, our seat back failure attorneys have a proven track record of fighting for our clients who have been victims of motor vehicle accidents.

Pedestrian Accident

New Jersey and New York law firm representing personal injury victims of pedestrian accidents.

Unfortunately drivers may not be paying attention while driving; they may be distracted or even texting while driving. Because of its high population density, New Jersey has one of the highest rates of pedestrian fatalities in the country.

Intersections near highway on-ramps are ripe for these types of accidents. Visibility is reduced and speeds are high. Cars often hit pedestrians who are legally crossing in a crosswalk. Unfortunately, this type of car accident often results in serious — potentially fatal — injuries to the pedestrian.

The types of cases that our pedestrian accident lawyers handle include:

Brain Injuries and Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI); Bicycle Accidents; Bus Accidents; Drunk Driving Accidents; Distracted Driving; Garden State Parkway Accidents; Head-On Collisions; Hit and Run Accidents; Intersection Accidents; Side Impact Accidents; Motorcycle Accidents; Multi-Car Crash Accidents; New Jersey Turnpike Accidents; Rear-End Collisions; Rollover Accidents; Single-Car Accidents; Spinal Cord Injuries; Tractor Trailer Accidents; Uninsured/Underinsured Accidents; and Wrongful Death Accidents.

Most people have a very limited understanding of New Jersey automobile insurance. In order to protect yourself and your family, it is important that you review your insurance policy selections with an attorney.

You should understand the different types of policies and the variety of coverage offered in the insurance companies’ selection pamphlets. You must know the difference between a standard policy, a basic policy and a special policy. You should understand the meaning of the term "Lawsuit Option".
