New Jersey & New York Personal Injury Lawyers

Being injured in an accident can be an overwhelming experience and even more so when an accident is caused by the negligent or reckless conduct of another person or entity. Left with lingering pain and suffering and mounting medical expenses, many victims may not know where to turn for justice. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, having an experienced personal injury attorney in your corner is essential.

Personal Injury Cases We Handle

At Nagel Rice LLP, our legal team is dedicated to fighting for the injured. Knowing that most of our clients have never encountered the legal system, we take the time to explain their rights and help them navigate the process. Our New Jersey personal injury attorneys have experience handling a wide range of personal injury claims, including, but not limited to:

Bus and Train Accidents

Commuters and visitors who rely on mass transportation throughout New Jersey and New York City typically arrive at their destinations safely. Nonetheless, when a bus, train, or subway accident occurs, passengers can sustain catastrophic injuries. We believe that injury victims deserve just compensation and negligent parties must be held accountable. We have represented victims of the Amtrak derailment in Philadelphia in 2016 and the New Jersey Transit derailment in Hoboken in 2017.

Truck Accidents

Motorists have no choice but to share the road with commercial trucks and tractor-trailers. Given the size and weight of a typical truck, being involved in a collision can be devastating for occupants of smaller vehicles. We are dedicated to holding negligent trucking companies and truck drivers accountable for causing injuries to others.


Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians in New Jersey and New York City run the risk of being struck by cars, buses, trucks, and taxicabs. Although pedestrians have an obligation to abide by all traffic laws and exercise reasonable care for their own safety, motorists also have a duty of care not to injure others. We have extensive experience handling personal injury claims arising from pedestrian accidents.

Automobile Accidents

Thousands of individuals are injured in auto accidents in New Jersey and New York each year. Although many of these claims involve negotiating with an insurance company, insurers often put profits ahead of the well-being of injury victims. We provide aggressive legal representation to help our clients obtain the full value of their claims inside and outside of the courts.


Bicycle Accidents

Because bicycles offer almost no physical protection in collisions with larger, heavier vehicles, the risk of a cyclist being injured is far greater than the risk of a driver being seriously hurt in this type of accident. If you have suffered a severe injury in a collision with a negligent driver while riding your bicycle, you may be entitled to compensation to cover your medical expenses and other costs that result from the harm you have suffered. Nagel Rice, LLP has a team of experienced New Jersey personal injury attorneys that will fight to get the justice you deserve.

Motorcycle Accidents

It is all too easy for drivers to miss motorcyclists, colliding with them at intersections, rear-ending them on highways, or riding too close to them, causing them to leave the pavement or even tip over. At Nagel Rice, LLP, our personal injury attorneys are well-prepared to take your side if you are involved in a motorcycle accident.


Medical Malpractice

Patients place their trust and their well-being is in the hands of doctors, surgeons, hospitals, and other medical professionals. When patients are injured because of medical mistakes or negligence, it is possible to recover damages by pursuing a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Construction Accidents

Injuries at construction sites typically result from falls, cave-ins, fires and explosions, falling objects, defective equipment, and other hazards. Although workers are covered under the Workers’ Compensation Insurance program, it is possible to pursue injury claims over safety violations or against negligent third parties.


Burn Injuries

A burn injury can be one of the most traumatic personal injuries a person can endure. Our legal team fights for compensation for victims of burns caused by negligence and defective products. This includes burns sustained in building fires, car accident burn injuries, medical malpractice burn injuries, chemical burns, workplace accident burns, and burns caused by hazardous products and machinery.

Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one is never easy, but the burden can be more difficult to bear when death was the result of another’s reckless, negligent, or malicious conduct. Although no amount of money can ever replace a life, we can help surviving family members ease that burden by pursuing a wrongful death claim.


Product Liability

Businesses have a duty to ensure that the products they provide to consumers are safe. When injuries occur due to manufacturing or design defects or because of inadequate warnings, it is possible to bring a product liability lawsuit against a negligent manufacturer and/or distributor.

Premise Liability

Premises liability laws require all property owners (and in some situations, renters) to maintain their property and keep it safe for visitors. If you have slipped and fallen due to the negligence of someone else, the law provides for you to be compensated for your medical expenses and other costs resulting from your injuries.
