Many people in Monmouth County, New Jersey are injured in various types of accidents each year. While some people are injured in accidents that aren’t caused by other people or entities, others sustain serious injuries because of the wrongful or negligent actions of others. Personal injury cases involve claims against those who are responsible for causing accidents and injuries to others. The victims are entitled to pursue compensation by filing claims against those who are responsible for the harm they have suffered. At Raynes & Lawn, our injury attorneys have fought for the rights of accident victims for more than 50 years and have helped our clients to recover tens of billions of dollars.
Personal injury claims fall under an area of law called tort law. This is a body of law that deals with civil wrongs and allows the victims of negligence to pursue and recover compensation. Tort claims can also include cases involving intentional acts, but the vast majority deal with civil negligence causes of action. The victims of negligence can file lawsuits against those who caused them harm to recover monetary compensation for their economic and non-economic losses. In some cases, people file injury lawsuits against defendants even though criminal cases are already pending. Since personal injury claims require a lower burden of proof, it might be possible to hold a defendant accountable even when they are found not guilty in a related criminal case.
Many car accidents happen in Monmouth County each year. Unfortunately, some auto accident victims are seriously injured or killed.

Our lawyers work to help our clients recover maximal compensation following car crashes so that they can be made whole.
In Monmouth County, property owners and businesses are expected to keep their properties in reasonably safe conditions so that lawfully present visitors won’t suffer reasonably foreseeable injuries. When a property owner has allowed a dangerous condition to remain without fixing it or warning others about its presence, the property owner might be liable to pay damages to someone who is injured as a result. Our premises liability attorneys can review what happened in your case to determine whether the business or property owner might be liable to pay damages to you.
Medical professionals are expected to provide care with the same degree of competence as other professionals in the same practice fields and geographic regions would provide in similar treatment conditions. When a doctor, nurse, hospital, pharmacist, dentist, or another medical professional makes medical errors that deviate from the expected standard of care and seriously injure their patients, they might be liable to pay compensation to the victim in a medical malpractice lawsuit. These types of cases are complex and require the help of experienced medical malpractice lawyers and medical experts. Our medical malpractice and birth trauma attorneys have years of experience handling malpractice cases and can help you understand whether you might have a viable claim.
It is an unfortunate fact that many children are the victims of sexual abuse every year in the U.S. Many of these cases involve predators who are trusted by both children and their parents, including teachers, pastors, priests, bus drivers, counselors, preschool teachers, and more. In some cases, the institutions that provide the predators with the ability to access children try to conceal what has occurred, resulting in the further abuse of additional victims.
At Raynes & Lawn, our civil sexual abuse and child injury lawyers will strive to hold both the institutions that employ sexual abusers and the predators themselves fully accountable for their egregious actions. We want to help our clients recover all of the compensation they deserve while also helping to prevent others from suffering similar abuse.
