Am I entitled to compensation? If you are injured in an auto accident, you have a right to pursue fair compensation via a settlement or a lawsuit. If your claim is successful, you will receive compensation.

Will I have to endure a lengthy court battle? Although every car accident case is different, many accident cases are settled out of court. Depending on the circumstances of your accident and the evidence you have to support your claim, you may or may not have to go to court.

If I am partially responsible for the accident, can I still recover compensation? When it comes to auto accidents in NJ, the state follows a comparative negligence rule. This allows plaintiffs to collect compensation as long as they are not more than 50 percent responsible for the accident.

When should I contact an attorney? After an accident, your first concern should be to see a doctor. Immediately afterwards, you should contact an attorney. Remember, the statute of limitations in New Jersey is two years from the time of your personal injury. Once this period has passed, you may be barred from collecting compensation.

How much does a NJ car accident lawyer cost? At Brown, Novick & McKinley Attorneys at Law, we only operate on a contingency fee basis. This means that you do not have to worry about paying us up front. Instead, we only get paid if you receive a settlement.

Do I need an attorney? You are not required by law to retain an attorney if you wish to file a lawsuit. However, doing so can greatly increase your chances of obtaining compensation.
