An Experienced New Jersey Personal Injury Attorney Fighting for Your Compensation
Newark attorney helping victims recover for their losses
My name is Melvin A. Jacobs, and I have more than 40 years of experience successfully helping injured clients recover just and fair compensation for losses resulting from auto accidents, medical malpractice, unsafe products, dangerous drugs, slip-and-falls and unsafe work conditions. I also represent people with workers compensation and Social Security disability claims.
Seeking just and fair compensation for injuries
Personal injury claims are brought by victims who suffer physical or psychological injury directly because of another person’s negligence. From my Newark office, I use a practical, professional approach to help ensure that my clients obtain full and fair recovery for their injuries, including damages for their past and future medical bills, lost income, emotional distress, and pain and suffering. I use my extensive civil litigation experience, my knowledge about insurance company tactics, and my skills at settlement negotiation to obtain the best possible recovery for my clients.
Personalized legal guidance
My clients’ interests are my only priority. I provide personalized legal guidance at every step of your case — updating you on progress and fully informing you about the legal strategy and recovery options that are available. Also, I consult with knowledgeable and respected experts to assist with case preparation. With the assistance of physicians, trauma doctors, pharmacists, chiropractors, forensics engineers, mechanics and accident-reconstruction analysts, I am skilled at negotiating the best possible settlements. At trial, these experts are available to deliver clear, professional testimony.
Protecting your claim
New Jersey law sets limits on the amount of time you have to file a personal injury claim. Consult an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible so that your claim is filed within crucial statutory deadlines. By investigating your claim immediately, I help ensure that valuable evidence remains available and that witnesses’ memories remain fresh.
