South Jersey Personal Injury Lawyers

Representing Injured Victims Throughout the South Jersey and Philadelphia Area

Seeking legal advice in a time of need can be a daunting and intimidating task for most people. When seeking legal counsel, a lawyer with diverse experience may be ideal, seeing as no two cases are the same, and many cases encompass two or more practice areas. South Jersey personal injury lawyers at Folkman Law are well-rounded and experienced in different practices areas, and have sought and won compensation for individuals in a variety of cases.

Personal Injury

Individuals who have sustained an injury due to another’s negligence may find the mounting medical bills and time spent out of work to be endless. Cherry Hill personal injury lawyers at Folkman Law seek compensation on behalf of those who were injured in a myriad of accidents, including:

Furthermore, individuals who have lost a loved one in a preventable accident can file a wrongful death suit to hold certain parties liable for their negligence.

Medical Malpractice

While medical professionals are oftentimes highly trained in their area, they are not above making mistakes out of carelessness or negligence, which can prove to be fatal for their patients. Because doctors are so highly-trained and qualified, it may be intimidating or difficult to hold medical professionals responsible for their negligence. Cherry Hill medical malpractice lawyers at Folkman Law can ensure that those who have suffered from a birth injury, early discharge, hospital acquired infectionprescription error, misdiagnosis, surgical error, hospital negligence, medication error or any other type of medical error receive the representation they deserve.

Premises Liability Laws

If an injury occurs on someone’s property and it was due to the owner’s negligence in proper upkeep, they may be held liable under premises liability laws. Owners of businesses and private residences are responsible for keeping their properties safe and removing potential hazards for their guests. Slip and fall injuries are among the most common under premises liability, but instances of amusement park accidents and swimming pool accidents also occur and can be devastating.

Legal Malpractice

Much like doctors, lawyers are expected to adhere to a code of ethics. However, when a lawyer takes action that is not in the best interest of the client, the code is breached and the lawyer may be held liable. While this breach in ethics can be extremely damaging to the client, Cherry Hill legal malpractice lawyers can work to undo the harm an unethical lawyer has committed.

Business Litigation

Business owners face challenges daily. However, the added stress of a dispute with an employee or a partner can slow a business down severely, putting many owners in the red. If a dispute arises in your business, know that the Cherry Hill business litigation lawyers at Folkman Law have experience in all facets of business law, having represented clients in:

  • Contractual disputes
  • Fiduciary breach
  • Partnership disputes
  • Shareholder disputes

Civil Rights

The Constitution of the United States grants its citizens specific, inviolable rights. At times, those in power have violated these liberties, depriving individuals of their most basic rights. Know that if a police officer or a prison guard has abused their authority, there may have a civil rights case. At Folkman Law, we have represented individuals in the following cases:

  • False arrests
  • Malicious prosecution
  • Police brutality and misconduct
  • Prison mistreatment
  • Unnecessary taser use

Employment Law

Many workers will tolerate abuse or discrimination as they feel it is just part of a job. Many more fear retaliation for what would happen if they reported harassment or misconduct. Workers should know that harassment and discrimination are not a part of any job, and they should not forfeit their rights for the sake of employment. At Folkman Law, our Cherry Hill employment lawyers have represented employees who have been victims of:
