Personal Attention and Commitment to our Clients

Once a case is accepted by the firm, clients are provided unfettered access to a lawyer. Together, we work with our clients to gather all necessary evidence to support the case. This begins at the initial client interview when we learn about you and your accident, and continues when we obtain relevant medical records, contact key witnesses, inspect and preserve important evidence and instrumentalities, seek out necessary documents and things from parties and non-parties, and retain the services of top expert witnesses to provide testimony on liability and medical issues affecting the case.

No two clients are alike, and the facts of every case are different. Thus, we treat every case as a personal relationship between the firm and our client. We keep clients updated every step of the way, so they can make informed decisions affecting their case. We firmly believe that it is the client’s case – not ours. As legal counsel, we strive to pursue the maximum possible compensation for the client’s damages, and see that the client understands the legal process as it unfolds.

It is helpful when a client brings to the initial interview all documents related to their case. This can include insurance cards (auto, health, Medicare and/or Medicaid), police reports, witness information, medical records, bills, insurance information, wage statements, repair estimates, correspondence, photographs and notes. The more information we have, the better equipped we are to prepare a case.

We are proud of our work, and passionate about the pursuit of justice for wrongfully injured people. Our lawyers previously worked at some of the largest and most prominent law firms in the United States, and we bring this experience and know-how to each and every case.

Personal Injury Cases

Personal injury cases can range from motor vehicle accidents and slip and falls, to medical malpractice and work injury matters. The Reinartz Law Firm handles all types of New Jersey injury cases, in addition to wrongful death matters, which are initiated by the estate of a deceased person against the negligent parties responsible for the untimely death.

Victims in these cases can pursue compensation for a wide range of economic and noneconomic damages. Economic damages can include lost wages, medical bills and out-of-pocket expenses. Noneconomic damages include pain, suffering, disability, impairment and loss of enjoyment of life. Certain catastrophic injuries may also cause damage to the spouse of the injured party, who can initiate a claim for loss of consortium.

We help clients locate and secure coverage for medical treatment after accidents, and aggressively pursue compensation for all compensable damages from the negligent parties who caused the injuries. And under our contingency fee arrangement, clients pay us nothing until we secure them a financial recovery.

Medical Malpractice Law

Medical Malpractice

We place a great deal of trust in medical professionals to keep us healthy and care for us when we are suffering pain and illness. While the majority of medical professionals are skilled, caring, and genuinely invested in our well-being, the unfortunate truth is that some are not.

If a physician, nurse, therapist or other medical provider deviates from the expected, recognized standard of care and injures someone as a result, they could be held liable for medical malpractice. It can be difficult to tell when you have suffered an injury due to medical malpractice, thus it is important to contact a lawyer if you have any doubt.

You may have experienced a negative, unexpected result after a surgical procedure. Or perhaps a minor, routine treatment results in injury, or requires a second procedure to fix a prior error. If you think you may have been the victim of medical malpractice, you should contact us immediately to protect your rights. We understand the complexities of medical malpractice claims, and can review the facts of your case and explain your rights.

Workers Compensation

Workers’ Compensation

Under New Jersey law, all employers must carry workers’ compensation insurance for the benefit of their employees. Workers’ compensation is a form of no-fault insurance that is available to employees who are injured on the job. Under this insurance, injured workers are entitled to paid medical care, temporary disability and certain permanent disability benefits.

After a work injury, it is imperative to notify your employer about the injury so that a workers’ compensation claim can be opened on your behalf. Then, it is important to contact a workers’ compensation lawyer to learn your rights.

The Reinartz Law Firm fights on behalf of injured workers’ to ensure they receive all appropriate workers’ compensation benefits. All too often, insurance companies deny valid claims and provide less than the fair measure of benefits to injured workers. An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can fight to ensure that all appropriate benefits are provided to the injured worker. Read More…
