Andrew Calcagno, the founding partner of Calcagno & Associates, handles a wide variety of personal injury cases.

New Jersey and New York both have strict guidelines when it comes to statutes of limitations. Failure to file claims within the deadline may make it impossible for you to collect damages in your personal injury lawsuit. The statutes of limitations are particularly strict when it comes to all claims against the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. If you were injured in an accident and are going to sue the Port Authority, you must bring your lawsuit within one year of the accident or lose your right to sue completely. Additionally, you must make a notice of claim 60 days before filing the lawsuit. Speak with Mr. Calcango right away about statutes of limitations on personal injury lawsuits in NJ and NY.

If you or someone you love has been hurt in one of the following types of personal injury situations in Edison, Clark, Hillside, Kenilworth or anywhere else in NJ, contact Mr. Calcagno today for a free consultation about your case:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents: This includes car, truck and motorcycle accidents that may cause head, neck and spinal injuries, internal bleeding, fractures and even wrongful death.
  • Public Transportation Accidents: Crashes involving trains and subways as well as buses, can cause catastrophic injuries.
  • Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents, including hit-and-run incidents, can leave victims with extremely serious, life-altering injuries.
  • Boating Accidents can be extremely catastrophic, leaving injured parties paralyzed and worse.
  • Sports-Related Accidents, including ATV and other recreational vehicle mishaps, can result in serious brain, back and neck trauma.
  • Construction Site Accidents: Falling and flying debris, including concrete, wood planks and nails, represent only a fraction of the serious injuries that are often sustained on or near construction sites.
  • Premises Liability Incidents: Standing water, potholes, cracked sidewalks, lack of security, insufficient lighting, etc. are all serious accidents waiting to happen. Slip-and-falls and trip-and-falls cause severe injuries.
  • Dog Bites: They are cute and furry and lovable – until they bite. Then, man’s best friend turns into your worst enemy, leaving you with painful, potentially long-term injuries.
  • Medical Malpractice: When doctors, nurses and healthcare facilities make mistakes, the repercussions can be disastrous. If you are the victim of a medication error, failure-to-diagnose or late diagnosis mistake or nursing home abuse or negligence, Mr. Calcagno will fight for you.

Whether you have been injured by defective machinery, a defective vehicle, dangerous drugs or any other kind of product defect, Mr. Calcagno can make sure that the liable parties are held responsible for their failures.
  • FELA (Federal Employers Liability Act): FELA is a federal law that protects railroad employees in the event of a train crash or any other work-related accident. Andrew Calcagno understands the nuances of both state and federal laws, including FELA, so he will make sure you meet all filing deadlines and requirements, as well as maximize your compensation in the event of a serious train accident.

Regardless of how you got hurt, you can rely on Mr. Calcagno’s dedicated and perseverance to fight for damages you need to pay for your considerable medical bills. Further, if you can’t work due to rehab and recovery, a sizable recovery in your personal injury lawsuit will allow you to focus on healing and not making ends meet.

Do not speak with anyone about the details of your Union County or Middlesex County accident before consulting with a skilled, experienced personal injury lawyer like Andrew Calcagno. This includes representatives from any insurance company or other party involved in the case. While they may seem sympathetic to your cause, they are not on your side.
