Find out if you have a good case
For residents of Paterson which is known as the cradle of the Industrial Revolution in the United States, as well as the “Silk City”, no matter how careful people go about their daily lives in this historic place, sometimes accidents just happen. Often these accidents just seem to come out of nowhere and they do so when people are least prepared for it. When an accident does happen, and someone or somebody is seriously injured, often the medical treatment and therapy needed for healing would require payment of a substantial amount of money in medical fees and hospital bills.
However, there are still quite a number of people who get injured in accidents who are not even aware that they might have a viable personal injury claim against their employer (if it happened in the workplace), or against a third person, for maximum compensation for all the injuries sustained as well as all the damages that he or she will suffer.
When you or any of your loved ones are seriously injured in a personal injury accident in Paterson, it’s important that you fully understand your legal rights and options before making any decisions that can have binding effects or consequences on your claim.
At Birkhold & Maider, our personal injury legal team in Paterson will make sure when you step into our door to discuss your case, that you are fully apprised of your legal rights and options. They’ll discuss with you not just the financial compensation for the injuries you sustained but also the amount of money that you could possibly get for your previous, current, and any anticipated damages that may come up as a result of your injuries. Don’t delay your decision for far too long before you contact our legal team of courtroom-seasoned personal injury attorneys. Get in touch with us to set up a free case evaluation so we can discuss your case and show you how we can make a difference in getting the maximum financial compensation and damages for you or your loved ones.

So long as there is another or third person who is at fault for the injuries you or your loved ones suffered, our firm can help you make them pay for the injuries and damages they caused to you, regardless of the kind of accident that caused your injuries.
Part of the process of obtaining justice and exacting liability from those who are responsible for the injuries you or your loved ones sustained in an accident is to get the maximum financial compensation and recovery. While it’s true that there is no substitute for a lost or paralyzed limb, for being able to walk around or lift things, or a significantly reduced physical capacity to perform a daily task, it’s still an achievement in your quest for justice that you are able to put a dollar figure to your suffering and obtain such amount from those responsible for the injuries caused to you or to your loved ones.
The stark reality is that when all the panic and the emergency-room hysteria dies down, and you or your loved ones step out of the hospital, your family will most likely need a lot of money to pay for medical fees and hospital bills. And if you can’t go back to work anymore because of your injuries, then you would need a whole lot more money to cover your living expenses, as you try to figure out what to do next for you and your family. That is why Birkhold & Maider will work hard to get you fair and full compensation in your Paterson personal injury case. We will claim:
Give us a call or come visit us anytime when you are ready to talk about pursuing financial compensation for the injuries you or your loved ones suffered from your accident, and we’ll show you the amount of compensation you are entitled to under the law and how we can help you.
Paterson is the largest city in and the county seat of Passaic County in New Jersey. As of the 2010 US census, the population of Paterson was placed to be at 146,199, making it New Jersey’s third-most populous city. Paterson has the third-highest density of any U.S. city with over 100,000 people, behind only New York City and San Francisco. The city borders the municipalities of Clifton, Haledon, Hawthorne, Prospect Park, Totowa, and Woodland Park (formerly West Paterson) in Passaic County.
In 1791, Alexander Hamilton, who was the first United States Secretary of the Treasury, helped found the Society for the Establishment of Useful Manufactures (S.U.M.), which, in turn, helped encourage the harnessing of energy from the Great Falls of the Passaic River. The aim was to secure economic independence from British manufacturers. The society founded Paterson, which became the cradle of the Industrial Revolution in America. Paterson was named after William Paterson, a statesman and signatory to the Constitution of New Jersey. Paterson became Governor of New Jersey, and in 1792 signed the charter that established the town of Paterson.
Paterson is also called the “Silk City” owing to its dominant role in silk production during the latter half of the 19th century. From then, it has already evolved into a major destination for Hispanic immigrants. People from India, South Asia, those from the Arab and Muslim world have flocked to Paterson seeking a new life. Paterson has the second-largest Muslim population in the United States in terms of percentage.

Yes, you can still claim compensation even if you were partly at fault for your accident. In the state of New Jersey, an injured party may still seek compensation for personal injury claims even if he or she is partly to be blamed for his or her injuries. The claimant can still do this so long as the injured party’s share of the fault or blame is not more than half or fifty percent. However, the effect of this is that the portion of the fault attributable to the injured party will be applied to the amount of financial recovery that he or she can claim from the party at-fault to reflect the portion of the fault that can be attributed to the injured party. For example, if the injured party is awarded $100,000 in damages but the injured party is also found by the court to be partly at-fault for around thirty percent of the accident, then the amount of the award will be reduced by thirty percent.
The state of New Jersey has a statute of limitations for personal injury claims. Under the statute of limitations, a lawsuit must be filed within two years from the date when the accident occurred. In some circumstances, where you were initially unaware that you were already injured (such as when the damage is not physically visible), or when you do not yet know who was responsible for your injury, this two-year period for the statute of limitations may not begin to toll until you “discover” those facts. Should you fail to file your lawsuit for your personal injury claim before the expiration of the statute of limitations, it is very likely that the court will dismiss your suit and you will lose your right to demand compensation for your injuries in court. If your personal injury claim is against a government agency, you must provide notice to the government within a period as short as 90 days depending on the level of the government agency involved.
