Areas of Practice
Pedestrians and Bicyclists
Pedestrians and bicyclists are among the most vulnerable claimants. A careless driver can turn a simple evening walk or bike ride into a nightmare that changes your life forever. Often, the primary, overriding concern of pedestrians, bicyclists and others struck by motor vehicles is the question of who will pay for emergency room expenses, ambulance bills, doctors’ bills, physical therapy expenses, etc. I have been an active cyclist for many years and have represented hundreds of bicyclist and pedestrians. You need an experienced attorney you can trust to fight the insurance companies for you.
Trips & Falls
The laws regarding premises liability cases, including trips and falls and other types of cases, are constantly evolving. It is imperative that those injured on someone else’s property seek legal assistance promptly after an accident, so that responsible parties may be identified quickly. All too often, especially in claims involving municipalities, victims of accidents are not aware of the shortened time limits and seek legal assistance too late. We at Robert S. Fader, P.C., urge such accident victims to contact a lawyer without delay so that their rights may be properly protected.
Workplace and Construction Accidents
It is an unfortunate fact of modern life that all too frequently building owners and contractors put financial interests ahead of concern for the safety and well-being of workers. Shortcuts and time pressures can expose workers to serious injuries and death. Many times serious workplace injuries affect the main “bread winner” for the family, thus putting unexpected stress on entire families who must now worry about paying daily bills such as rent, utilities, mortgages, etc. The law provides special protection and rights to workers injured in workplace and construction accidents. If you have sustained a serious workplace or construction site injury, call Robert S. Fader without delay to discuss your options.
Motor Vehicle Accidents

Product liability cases are among the most bitterly contested cases in law. Major corporations and insurance companies expend huge amounts of money and resources and hire experts and some of the largest and most prestigious defense firms in an effort to avoid paying just compensation to those who are victims of poorly designed or defectively manufactured products. You need an experienced personal injury attorney like Robert S. Fader to fight to protect your rights.
Our office has represented many people who have made claims or brought suit against hospitals, doctors, clinics, nursing homes and other healthcare facilities for injuries sustained due to the negligence of these healthcare providers or their employees.

In the unfortunate event of a hit and run accident or other claims involving an uninsured vehicle, an injured party may feel there is no recourse available to provide compensation for injuries and make sure medical bills are paid. All too often, these injured parties are unaware of their rights, forfeiting their right to compensation. In some instances, they remain responsible for substantial medical bills which they cannot afford to pay. An experienced personal injury attorney, such as Robert S. Fader, can help you avoid these mistakes.
