Areas of Law
Areas of Law Description
Law Offices of Richard S. Greenberg serves clients in the following areas of practice:
- Personal Injury
When you have been injured by someone else's carelessness, it is important to take some initial steps toward making sure your injury claim can be settled fairly and as quickly as possible. The Law Offices of Richard S. Greenberg handles all types of personal injury cases.
- Auto Accidents
If you have property damage or injuries from a car, truck, motorcycle, or bus accident, we can help. Maybe the other driver caused the accident by speeding, reckless driving, careless driving, or committing some other moving violation. Or perhaps the other driver was impaired by alcohol or drugs.
- Drunk or Drug Impaired Driver
Many accidents are caused when an impaired driver gets in a car and drives anyway. The terms driving while intoxicated and driving under the influence are both used to refer to alcohol or drug impaired driving. Drunk and drug impaired drivers endanger us all, not only other drivers, but also their passengers and unsuspecting pedestrians.
- Slip and Fall
When you fall down and sustain injuries, maybe it is your faultóbut maybe not. Slip and fall cases are significantly different from other types of personal injury cases. The evidence of the condition that caused the injury often quickly disappears. The snow melts. The spill gets cleaned up. The stairs are repaired. If you are injured by slipping and falling, try to get photographs of the scene, names and phone numbers of witnesses, and physical evidence if possible.
- Workplace Accidents and Workers' Compensation
Your employer is supposed to provide a safe and secure environment for you to work. But accidents do happen. Workers' compensation is insurance that pays you for injuries you sustain while at work, whether or not your injuries were your employer's fault.
- Dog Bites
New Jersey is among the majority of states that imposes strict liability on dog owners. That means that if you are a victim of a dog bite, the dog's owner must pay all of your damages even if the dog never bit anyone else before. But there are exceptions: you cannot be trespassing with criminal intent or you must not have caused the dog to bite you.
- Defective Products
Also known as products liability, defective products law holds designers, manufactures, and sellers of defective products liable for injuries and harm suffered by the buyers and users of such products. Perhaps the defect resulted from a faulty design. Or perhaps the defect was caused by a manufacturing error.
- Head Injuries
Whether due to a car accident, a workplace accident, a slip and fall, or negligence of someone else, head injuries are often very serious. Brain injuries can include: Tearing of the delicate brain tissue, such as from a sudden impact; Bruising, caused by impact to the skull; Swelling; Deprivation of oxygen, called "anoxic" brain injury.
- Construction Accidents
If you have been injured in a construction accident, most likely you were either: A bystander; A construction worker injured in the course of your employment; A construction worker injured by another employer at the same work site. If you were a bystander, then you may have a negligence case against the company doing the construction.
- Traffic Tickets and Municipal Court
If you get one or more traffic tickets for a moving violation, New Jersey makes it easy to plead guilty. In many cases you can simply mail in your fine or pay with a credit card on the internet. But then what happens? The NJ Motor Vehicle Commission will assess points against you.
- Divorce and Family Law
The Law Offices of Richard S. Greenberg not only does divorces, but we handle all other matters that may be brought to the family court. Is your ex-spouse not complying with the terms of your divorce judgment? We can help you get enforcement. We represent both obligors and obligees, we know both sides and use our expertise to your advantage.
- Real Estate
The Law Offices of Richard S. Greenberg handles all aspects of real estate transactions and litigation, including: Residential purchases, Residential sales, Refinancing, Commercial properties and Evictions.
- Wills and Estates
While it may be unsettling to think about, writing a will is one of the most considerate and loving things you can do for your spouse, children, and grandchildren. If you do not have a will, New Jersey intestate law will determine how to distribute your property upon your death.
