Celebrating Over 50 Years of Service

PERSONAL INJURY 

For decades, the firm’s litigation section has been handling lawsuits with successful recoveries for injured persons. While the vast majority of cases are settled without a trial, it is our professional commitment to prepare every case as if it were going to trial. We take as much time as needed to explain the procedures necessary for obtaining maximum recovery for pain and suffering, lost wages, medical expenses, and property damage. 

Our personal injury lawyer consultations are free. Except in unusual circumstances, we handle personal injury cases on a contingency fee arrangement, which means that a client does not have to pay for our services unless that client recovers money in the litigation. If you have been injured and feel someone else is responsible, do not delay. Call us and we will provide you with analysis free of charge. 

Auto Accidents

A major part of our personal injury practice focuses on representing individuals injured as a result of another driver’s negligence. In this day and age, insurance companies rarely negotiate fairly to compensate victims of driver negligence without the involvement of an attorney. It is our experience that litigation is often the only avenue to fair compensation. 

From the onset, we investigate your accident, preserve whatever evidence is needed and carefully analyze the medical treatment for your injuries. In addition, we are extensively familiar with the hurdles presented by your own auto insurance policy with regard to medical payments and income continuation (PIP) enabling you to successfully obtain the benefits to which you are entitled. Moreover, we discuss with the clients when underinsured (UIM) or uninsured (UM) claims should be made to recover for pain and suffering from their own insurance policies due to a lack or limit to insurance coverage afforded the negligent driver. 

Fall Down Accidents

Another significant area of our personal injury practice involves representing people who are injured due to dangerous or defective conditions in residential and commercial properties. Many of our clients’ injuries are the result of negligence by property owners who allow hazardous conditions to exist such as staircases without proper lighting and handrails, slippery floor surfaces, inadequate snow and ice removal, and deteriorated sidewalks and parking lots. 

Dog Bites

In New Jersey, dog owners are generally liable for the injuries caused by their dog. These injuries can be serious, particularly in the case of dog bites. The firm has experience in handling injuries caused by dogs and the insurance issues involved. 

Product Liability 

Claims involving hazardous products generally involve consumer products or work place injuries involving unsafe machinery. The injuries resulting from hazardous products can be substantial resulting in expensive medical care, lost wages, disability, and pain and suffering. The bringing of a product liability claim usually involves the hiring of experts such as engineers to establish the dangerous and unsafe nature of the product which caused the injury. The firm has experience in evaluating product liability claims and prosecuting product claims if an injury is the result of a dangerous and unsafe product. 

Medical Malpractice

The firm has two lawyers concentrating their practice in the area of medical malpractice. It is usually necessary to consult with medical professionals before a conclusion can be reached as to whether a doctor or other medical professional has been negligent. The lawyers in the firm that handle medical negligence claims have extensive experience in deciding whether a claim can be brought against a medical professional such as a doctor, nurse or hospital. If the firm does bring a claim, the firm has the experience and knowledge to bring the case to trial if a fair settlement cannot be obtained.

Testimonials

I retained attorney Steve Loewenthal to handle my personal injury case. Prior to our consultation, I was nervous  and still  unsure about what to do. Steve explained  the law, my options, and addressed all my questions or concerns about going forward. He’s an extremely knowledgeable attorney  who acts in a professional, respectful, and kind demeanor. He is direct and honest, does not make any ridiculous promises, or show any sign of unethical behavior.  Before  the depositions,  he explained the process, took the time to calm my concerns/fears, but most importantly, instructed me to tell the truth. I am aware of some of the negative stereotypes assumed about personal injury attorneys; however, Steve exhibits NONE of these negative qualities.

If you are a sports fan, you will love his office! His has an amazing assistant who was also very helpful! I did not call often but when I did, she knew who I was and exchanged pleasantries. With integrity and expertise, Steve succeeded in effectively handling my case. I do not share my experiences often; but in this case, Steve Loewenthal definitely earned my trust, respect, and my recommendation!

A Diamond in the Rough!

Mr. Loewenthal represented me in a civil case. From the initial consultation to the settlement, Steve provided the most professional, knowledgeable and considerate level of service. Steve kept me informed every step of the way and took his time to explain each new development in the case.

Steve’s experience gave me confidence from the outset the case would be handled with expertise. He was able to coordinate between all parties involved and his negotiating skills resulted in a most favorable outcome. His staff was a pleasure to deal with and were very accommodating. Steve and his office went above and beyond and he comes with my highest recommendation. Thank You, Steve, for everything you did in handling my case.

Highly Recommend

Mr. Loewenthal took my automobile personal injury case after 2 other law firms turned me down because of car insurance reasons that couldn’t get me a settlement. In NJ, you only have 2 years after your date of accident to pursue personal injury damage. I went to Mr. Loewenthal with my case close to 3 months before the 2 year deadline to sue. He walked me through everything that was going to happen, assured me that we have a case and worked hard on my case and met the deadline to sue. When Mr. Loewenthal called me withe settlement number, I almost fell off of my chair. He got me way more than I thought was possible, for I thought I was getting nothing because of the other lawyers turning my case down. Needless to say, Mr. Loewenthal is a “Jackpot!” lawyer and I recommend him 101% to anyone who wants a real lawyer.
