Personal Injury Law

A personal injury claim occurs when you are injured as a result of the careless or reckless actions of another person or company. For example, when a driver runs a red light and hits your car causing you to suffer an injury, you have a personal injury claim against that driver. Car accidents are not the only personal injury actions. These actions can arise if you are injured in a slip and fall, when using a defective product, or other accidents causing injury. Personal Injury claims also include actions for injuries as a result of an assault, dog bites, and wrongful death claims.

To fight the insurance companies, you need a lawyer who knows the system and will protect you and your interests to fully litigate your interests. You need a lawyer who will not wilt under the pressure of the Courts and the insurance industry. You need a firm that has withstood the test of time.

Robert Olkowitz has been handling personal injury cases since he joined his first law firm, a large personal injury firm, in 1981. In 1986, the Supreme Court of New Jersey certified Mr. Olkowitz as a Civil Trial Attorney after he provided the Court with his jury trial credentials and passed a stringent written examination. Mr. Olkowitz opened his own firm in 1995 and has continued to concentrate his practice only on injury and disability.

In 2003, Jeffrey Stripto, a lawyer with a strong personal injury background, joined the firm. He has quickly established himself as a rising star in personal injury litigation. As a result, he is a partner in the law firm and now successfully prepares and litigates the majority of the personal injury cases for the firm.
