Personal Injury Lawyers in Moorestown
Dedicated Personal Injury Lawyers Go to Battle for Clients Injured in Cherry Hill, NJ
A serious personal injury caused by the negligent or reckless actions of a third party can easily turn your life upside down—physically, emotionally and financially. Medical bills pile up quickly, making any available settlement offer initially seem appealing, and even necessary. Despite this, it is important to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer if you have been injured in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.
Initial settlement offers almost never represent the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled after an accident. Most insurance companies likely expect that the initial offer will be rejected, or countered with a much higher figure. At Cordry Hartman, LLC, our attorneys stand ready to fight for your right to receive compensation for all of the expenses related to your injuries, which can be difficult for someone inexperienced to estimate. If you have sustained an injury and believe that a third party’s negligent or reckless actions caused or contributed to the accident, contact our offices today to schedule a confidential consultation with one of our experienced personal injury lawyers.
Cordry Hartman, LLC Handles All Types of Personal Injury Cases in New Jersey
Accidents can happen in so many ways, and in most cases, they are completely unintended. Despite the best intentions, however, generally, carelessness contributes to countless accidents that cause serious injuries every day. At Cordry Hartman, LLC, our personal injury lawyers have successfully represented clients who have been injured in a wide variety of accidents, including:
- Motor vehicle accidents: Every driver on the New Jersey roads owes a duty of care to other drivers on the road, which means that if a driver is negligently driving and causes an accident, he or she can be held financially responsible for injuries and damages caused by the accident.
- Large truck accidents: Semi-trucks and tractor-trailers cause significant damage when the driver, truck company or cargo company fail to responsibly operate and maintain the vehicle.
- Slip and fall accidents: Property owners have a duty to maintain reasonably safe property conditions for others who enter the property, whether to conduct business or act as guests.
- Dog bites: Dog bite victims may be entitled to recover compensation from the dog’s owner or homeowner’s insurance company.
- Workplace accidents: While worker’s compensation laws restrict an employee’s right to sue the employer for workplace injuries, in many cases a third party is responsible for the accident that caused the injury and can be held liable.
- Medical malpractice: Even doctors and health professionals can act negligently, and injured parties may have the right to recover damages in these cases.
- Product liability: Negligently designed products can cause serious injuries for which the product manufacturer or designer can be held liable. Failure to properly warn of a product’s dangers can also give rise to a product liability-based personal injury lawsuit.
- Wrongful death: The family of an individual who was tragically killed in an accident caused by another party’s negligence or reckless has the right to pursue a lawsuit to recover compensation from that party.

Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury
Our attorneys always prepare for the possibility of trial, but many cases can realistically be resolved through negotiations prior to trial. We consult with our clients to evaluate their goals and preferences and work to reach a fair settlement agreement that avoids the time and expense of trial if the client prefers to avoid trial. Some clients would prefer to go to trial to hold the negligent or reckless parties liable in a more public forum, and our attorneys are ready to try your case before a jury or judge.
Adults generally have two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit, and minors have two years following the date of their 18th birthday to file. Medical malpractice claims are slightly different, and provide a two-year time period from the date that you knew or, or reasonably should have known of, the malpractice.
