I consulted with Teresa on my auto accident, where another driver had cut me off on the Bay Bridge toll approach. I found her extremely knowledgeable and helpful in digging into the facts and helping me understand the value of the case. She could clearly explain the law to me, so I knew where I stood. I appreciate her help very much.

My injury ended my career so I knew that I needed the best personal injury lawyer I could find. Mr. Cohen was the only lawyer that I spoke to who didn't make me feel like he wanted to get me off the phone and get me to sign the paperwork quick quick quick. He treated me like a real person and was very understanding about the huge challenges that I faced.

I hired them to represent me for two different cases - - one was a work injury and the other was a car accident. The work injury case took a couple of years to settle but they were able to get my car accident case settled in under a year. I had good communication and contact with the firm during both cases. I was happy with the money they were able to get me for each of the cases. I trusted in their expertise and it paid off.

Personal injury lawyers get a bad rap, but these ones are definitely an exception to the bad stereotypes I'd always heard about. They fought really hard against the insurance company and kept going back over and over again until I got the money that the insurance company should have paid me in the first place.

Lior Sadgan is a fantastic lawyer. I was involved in a car accident and got referred over to Lior. I went into his office a day after and he explained every step we were going to take very detailed. He made me feel so comfortable and reassured me I had nothing to worry about. He is very firm. He knows exactly what he is doing so I HIGHLY recommend him.

Wesley Wakefield was very open to giving me consult on my car accident situation. I appreciated his kind demeanor and his thorough explanation of the process and things to consider/communicate with my insurance company on. Hopefully it is unlikely I will need a lawyer for this case, but I appreciate Wesley's time and will consult him in the future if necessary!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What should you look for in a personal injury lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer will advocate for your legal rights if you’ve been hurt in an accident at work or in daily life, have suffered from medical malpractice, or are struggling to have your insurance carrier cover your needs. It may be helpful to talk with two or three lawyers before selecting one. When looking for a personal injury lawyer, research their reviews and make sure former clients have had good experiences with them. Next, make sure the personal injury lawyer has experience and proven success winning cases similar to yours. Confirm that the lawyer is licensed to provide services in your state. When you find a qualified personal injury lawyer with whom you want to work, freely discuss payment and fees before any work begins. Most lawyers offer a free consultation to learn what your case is about and explain their rates. Personal injury attorneys typically receive a percentage of your settlement (called a contingency fee), so they are paid after the trial or case is complete. Keep in mind that some attorneys have fees that you must pay even if you don’t win your trial. It’s important to understand these details before work begins so you don’t have any unhappy surprises later. Lastly, it’s wise to choose a personal injury lawyer that you have confidence in and with whom you can communicate openly and honestly.

What is a personal injury lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer fights on your behalf if you’ve been injured physically, psychologically, economically or in reputation. This injury may be the result of neglect or malicious intent of another person, or it could be at the hands of a business, government or other entity. Personal injury lawyers specialize in tort law, which is the law of civil wrongs like car accidents, company wrongdoing, unlawful imprisonment and more.

To become qualified to be a personal injury lawyer in the United States, a person must earn a bachelor’s degree, followed by a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from a law school. Most states then require the person to pass the bar exam to become licensed to practice law. Unlike many attorneys who require a retainer, personal injury lawyers often work on contingency fees. This means that in lieu of payment upfront, they receive an agreed-upon percentage of the settlement in case of a win.
