Personal Injury

Learn more

If you were injured in a car accident or as a result of a slip and fall or dog bite, your focus should be on your recovery. That’s why we’re here to handle the rest. We will investigate your case thoroughly and help you hold the responsible party liable for the injuries you sustained as a result of their negligence.

Workers Compensation

Learn more

You go to work to collect a paycheck - not to get injured. When you’ve been injured at work and miss time as a result, you need help and you need it quickly. New Jersey is a no-fault state, which means that you can recover financially, regardless of who was at fault for your injuries. Still, workers’ compensation can be a complex process. That’s why you need an experienced lawyer to help you deal with the protracted legal issues surrounding your injury and claim.

Arbitration Services

Learn more

The PIP arbitration process is there to resolve disputes between medical providers and automobile insurance companies. If your medical bills were unpaid or underpaid by the PIP carrier, then an experienced PIP arbitration lawyer from Birkhold & Maider, LLC can help with you filing an Arbitration Demand, pre-certification of medical services and more. Don’t delay in getting the assistance you need.

Municipal & Criminal

Learn more

What happens after you were pulled over for a suspected DUI? What should you do if you were charged with drug possession? What are your rights? Is your freedom at stake? At Birkhold & Maider, LLC, we answer these commonly asked questions. Whether you’re dealing with a municipal or criminal matter, we will aggressively defend your legal rights. Call us today.
