Dedicated Summit Negligence Attorneys Help You Determine Fault Following an Accident
Proving negligence and filing personal injury lawsuits throughout Union County, NJ
One of the most difficult tasks following certain personal injuries can be determining who is at fault. That determination takes a skilled negligence attorney who knows how to investigate accidents to find out exactly what caused them and then follow through with aggressive representation throughout settlement and court proceedings. At Ventura, Miesowitz, Keough and Warner, P.C., we have more than 30 years of experience helping injured people primarily in Union, Essex, Somerset and Morris counties and throughout the State. We invest a substantial amount of professional time and resources into every case we take on. We are passionately dedicated to securing the best outcome for you and your family — with personal attention you can count on to keep you completely informed at all times.
Large-firm representation with small-firm service and care
For you or a loved one to receive compensation for a personal injury, you have to prove more than just that you were injured. You must also clearly show that specific individuals or entities were responsible for your injury through negligent acts or omissions. In order to prove negligence, our Westfield & Summit personal injury lawyers will demonstrate the following:
- Duty of care. Your attorneys must prove that a person or entity had a duty to act in a certain matter.
- Breach of duty of care. The defendant in your case must have failed to act in a reasonable manner in breach of that duty.
- Proximate cause. It must be shown that the defendant’s negligence was the proximate cause of the accident resulting in injury.
- Harm as a result of negligence. Finally, your attorney must show the nature and extent of your injury was the direct result of the negligence of the defendant.
Working closely with your Summit accident lawyer, whether for slip and fall accidents or the wrongful death of a loved one, we strive to clearly make the case that your injury or another’s death could have been prevented if not for the negligence of another party. When we do so, it becomes much more likely that you can collect just compensation for medical costs, lost wages and pain and suffering.
