Let’s face it: if you live in New Jersey, you have no doubt seen or heard hundreds of ads for personal injury attorneys on bus stops, billboards, newspapers, radio stations, TV, and elsewhere. You probably do not give them much thought until the day an accident or other event causes a personal injury to you or a family member. In such moments, it is easy to feel traumatized, confused, financially and emotionally stressed, and altogether uncertain of where to start – much less end – in your search for a personal injury attorney that is right for you. Here a few things to keep in mind as you look for the New Jersey personal injury attorney you want to represent you in fighting for the justice and financial recovery you deserve.

You Are in the Driver’s Seat in Your Personal Injury Attorney Search

Lawyers do have a reputation for being aggressive and even intimidating – and, in fact, those qualities can be quite beneficial to you as the client in winning your recovery – but, as an injured victim, it is your decision and your decision alone regarding what attorney that you retain. If you have suffered significant injury due to the negligence of another, there are going to be numerous attorneys who want to work with you, so don’t be afraid to reach out to attorneys and ask them the questions you want answered before you go forward with one.

Look For Both Personal Injury Experience and Results

Ultimately, what you should be looking for in a New Jersey personal injury attorney is one who can get you the full recovery that you deserve for your injuries, including all lifetime medical bills, pain and suffering compensation, and any lost income or reduced earning potential you have suffered. Just about any attorney can cut a quick deal for a lowball settlement, but look for one that has experience and a consistent record of results in winning the types of large settlements and verdicts that cover all of a personal injury victim’s losses.

Find an Attorney Willing to Go the Extra Mile For You

Your recovery begins with having an attorney who understands exactly what you are going through with the trauma, inconvenience, and shock of your accident. Is your attorney willing to come to you in your hospital or home to discuss your circumstances and what can be done on your behalf? What services and guidance can they offer you while you recover? Again, you are in the driver’s seat and you can and should demand the highest level of client service from your attorney.

Don’t Be Afraid to Keep Looking Until You Find a Lawyer That’s Right

Contacting an attorney for a free consultation is just that – a consultation – and if the attorney you speak with does not provide you with confidence, care, and concern you deserve, you can always contact another one who will.
