Slaven Law Firm, LLC Fights for Victims of Injuries, Accidents and Negligence

New Jersey personal injury lawyer Stephen Slaven puts extensive litigation and investigation experience to work holding insurance companies and other liable parties accountable when accidents or negligence cause people to suffer.

Injuries due to car and trucking accidents, reckless and purposeful behavior, hazardous and neglected property, medical malpractice and similar causes can be serious and debilitating to individuals and their families. Medical treatment can be costly, and a lengthy recovery can result in lost wages, stress, depression and other economic and non-economic damages. New Jersey law permits injury victims to pursue recovery of these damages through litigation against the people or companies liable.

Based in Hamilton Township, New Jersey, Slaven Law Firm, LLC assists personal injury victims and their families in litigating their claims and recovering compensation for the damages they suffer. He serves all of central New Jersey, including Mercer County, Middlesex County and Burlington County.

Whether the liable party is an individual, their insurance company, a business or a major corporation, Mr. Slaven has the skill and experience to gather the evidence necessary to prove an injury victim’s case and win the compensation.

If you’ve been injured in an accident or through the negligent or careless actions of others, you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Medical Costs
  • Loss of Income
  • Diminished Quality of Life
  • Replacement Services (services hired to perform household tasks you are not able to do during your recover)
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Loss of Consortium
  • Other Damages

New Jersey Personal Injury Cases Handled by the Slaven Law Firm:

Motor Vehicle Accidents

As a New Jersey auto and truck accident lawyer, Mr. Slaven represents individuals who have been injured in a motor vehicle accident and need help recovering damages from the party at fault. Even if the person at fault for your auto accident is insured, injury victims represented by skilled attorneys typically recover significantly more for damages than those who don’t because insurance companies fight tooth-and-nail to avoid paying the full value of claims. A skilled investigator and trial lawyer, Mr. Slaven understands how to reconstruct an accident scene for a jury and present the evidence so that jurors realize the value and credibility of your case.

Medical Malpractice

When you put yourself in the care of a doctor or surgeon, you expect your health and injuries to improve, not worsen. Yet, despite the medical industry’s policies and practices designed to avoid malpractice injuries, overworked and careless physicians injure and cause the death of thousands of people each year in the U.S. New Jersey law permits victims of medical malpractice to recover damages from the physicians that cause their injuries if they can prove their case in court. Having an experienced and qualified personal injury and medical malpractice attorney on your side is critical as the medical industry is defended by some of the best lawyers in the country. If you’ve been hurt through the negligent actions of a physician, surgeon, medical facility or other medical service provider, Slaven Law Firm, LLC can help you gather the evidence needed to prove your case and seek recovery of damages.

Premises Liability

Property owners are responsible for the safety of people they invite onto their premises. This includes businesses and other commercial properties open to the public. If property owners, or their representatives (i.e. store managers or employees) fail to eliminate or warn visitors about obstructions and hazards, an accident may result and cause injury to a visitor. When this occurs, the property or business owner is often liable for those injuries and the injury victim can recover damages from them. Having a skilled personal injury lawyer like Mr. Slaven on your side is critical as the insurance companies backing these property and business owners hire top-notch attorneys to avoid paying injury claims.

Wrongful Death

The death of a loved one can be devastating, both financially and emotionally. However, when a death is caused by someone’s careless, reckless or deliberate actions some of the pain and costs can be offset by recovery of damages from the people responsible. While no one wants to consider a lawsuit while grieving a loss, bills and expenses relating to the death can mount quickly, especially if the deceased was a wage earner for the family, and state law limits the time in which survivors can file a wrongful death claim. At Slaven Law Firm, LLC, we can initiate a lawsuit on behalf of your deceased loved one and manage the investigation and legal issues, lifting the burden from your shoulders and giving you time to grieve and recover.

Other personal injury cases accepted by Slaven Law Firm include:

  • Product Liability/Defective
    Product Injuries

Insurance Companies are Not Your Friends — Talk to a New Jersey Personal Injury Attorney Before Accepting Any Settlement or Signing Any Statements

Insurance companies make money by investing the premiums paid by customers and paying out as little as possible for injury claims. The more they pay out in claims, the less money they have earning interest on their investments. Insurance companies are highly motivated to avoid paying injury claims and go to great extremes to accomplish this.

One of their tactics is to offer a settlement far below the true value of a claim in hopes that the claimant will be desperate enough to take it. The discrepancy can mean the loss of money for the claimant, depending on the severity and duration of their injuries. Another tactic used by insurance companies is to bully claimants into signing statements about their injuries early in the case. These statements typically limit the insurer’s liability for injuries and complications discovered later. Hiring a qualified and experienced personal injury attorney, like Mr. Slaven, can help you avoid falling victim to these tactics and ensure recovery of damages much more appropriate for your injuries. Our fees are contingent on successful recovery of damages, so you’ll never owe us fees if we don’t recover damages.
