If you sustain an injury in an accident, it is in your best interest to consult a reputable New Jersey personal injury attorney. However, you may have noticed that there are many accident law firms in New Jersey from which to choose. Personalized legal guidance and attentive service separate Brown, Novick & McKinley Attorneys at Law from the competition. Additionally, our lawyers have more than half a century of combined legal experience practicing injury law, and we draw upon that experience to fight for the fair compensation you deserve.
From our office in Woodbury, our personal injury attorneys demonstrate a deep understanding of the law and of how the civil litigation system works, which gives us the ability to explain your legal options in an easily accessible manner.

Injuries change lives for the worse, but we work to make things better
Whether on the worksite or in an automobile, we know that accidents happen. Often these accidents are minor — but when you’re seriously injured, you and your family may struggle with long-term physical and psychological pain. As your personal injury lawyers in Woodbury, New Jersey, our goal is to help get you the compensation you need to move on with your life. We accomplish this in a number of ways. As skilled negotiators, we work diligently to obtain a fair settlement that covers the cost of medical bills, lost wages due to missed work and pain and suffering. However, we are also prepared to take cases to court if settlement negotiations break down, or if the offer on the table is inadequate.
Our personal injury lawyers obtain justice for people in New Jersey who suffer catastrophic injuries, such as brain damage or spinal trauma. When a drunk driver — or any negligent operator of a truck, car, motorcycle or other motor vehicle — causes an accident, our experienced team seeks compensation for victims’ resulting injuries and provides invaluable emotional support. If a doctor or hospital makes a serious error — such as failing to provide necessary treatment or performing an improper procedure — we hold liable those responsible for such medical malpractice. And if someone’s negligence cost a loved one his or her life, we help survivors and dependents seek the compensation to which they are entitled through a wrongful death claim. Indeed, at Brown, Novick & McKinley Attorneys at Law, we take every step we can to offer the responsive, innovative and effective personal injury representation for which we’re respected throughout the state of New Jersey.
Do I need a lawyer?
Often, victims of auto accidents and others potentially entitled to damages in a personal injury case will receive a quick settlement offer from an attorney or insurance company representing the possible defendant. Resolving the case and receiving payment can be very tempting for someone who is hurt, particularly if they are unable to work due to their medical condition, but the job of these lawyers and insurance adjusters is to minimize your compensation. Unless you hire a qualified attorney, you might not be aware of the amount you could receive under the circumstances. Our firm will be on your side and handle each aspect of your legal matter, including the following:
- Investigating the accident and collecting relevant evidence
- Advising on the amount of damages appropriate for your case, including compensation for medical expenses, lost income and pain and suffering
- Locating and interviewing witnesses
- Preparing legal documents and ensuring that they are filed on time
- Identifying all of the potentially liable parties
- Hiring qualified experts when warranted
- Developing a well-supported argument for use in settlement negotiations or at trial
You only have one chance to exercise your legal rights when you’ve been injured by someone else, so it is essential to retain an attorney with a proven track record of achieving exceptional results for others in your position.
How much does it cost?
You do not pay any attorney’s fees unless you collect a financial recovery through a settlement or verdict. We work on a contingency basis so our firm is paid as a set percentage of the payment you receive once the case is resolved. If you do not obtain compensation for your claim, then our firm does not take a fee.
What damages can you collect?
Under New Jersey law, there are various types of damages that can be awarded to a personal injury plaintiff. Some of these damages are designed to reimburse victims for discrete costs stemming from their injury, such as medical expenses, lost income, rehabilitation costs and funds needed to pay for nursing care or home accommodations. You can also collect payment for harm that cannot be assigned a specific price. For example, plaintiffs can receive compensation for their pain and suffering, as well as the loss of enjoyment in their life resulting from their injury. Our lawyers work closely with each client to understand the specific ways that their medical condition has affected them. From there, we formulate an appropriate damages demand based on the various effects experienced by the victim and results in similar cases.
