How to Choose the Right Personal Injury Lawyer

Personal Injury

You may be entitled to compensation if you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault. You will need a personal injury lawyer to get the compensation you deserve. But with so many lawyers, how do you choose the right one?

1. Experience Matters

When choosing a personal injury lawyer, experience should be your top priority. Look for a lawyer with at least five years of experience in personal injury law. An experienced Personal Injury lawyer will know how to handle complex legal issues and will have a good understanding of how insurance companies operate. They will also know how to negotiate with insurance companies to get you the best possible settlement.

2. Look for Specialization

Personal injury law is broad, and not all lawyers specialize in every aspect of it. Look for a lawyer specializing in the type of injury you have sustained. An attorney specializing in car accidents may not be the best choice for a products liability case. Choose a lawyer whose specialty matches your case and ask about their experience when choosing your law firm and lawyer. 

3. Check for Reputation and Modern Technology

It's crucial to choose a personal injury lawyer with a good reputation. Look for reviews on the lawyer's website or third-party websites like Google and Yelp. If a lawyer has no reviews or references, consider choosing a different lawyer.  You may want to check the Lawyer's knowledge of technology and see how they communicate with clients. do they text and/or email their clients? Not all Law firms are technologically proficient. You may want to know if the law firm works in a paperless environment. At Rosner Law Offices, we have been utilizing modern technology for over 20 years having went paperless back in 2003, over 20 years ago. 

4. Check for Fees

Most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. This means that they only get paid if they win your case. They will receive a percentage of the settlement or award amount if they win. Before hiring a lawyer, ensure you understand the fee structure and ensure it's reasonable. In NJ, the court rules alow a maximum percentage fee of one-third (33 1/3%) on the first $750,000.00 recovered, and a sliding scale of lower fees for amounts above that. If you retain an out of state Lawyer for a NJ case, they may try to charge you 40% or more. which is a violation of NJ law.
