I was involved in a car accident, someone hit me from behind. I needed to have my car fixed, and see a doctor. My friend told me to go on Thumbtack to find a personal injury attorney. Evan reached out and I discussed my case with him and Alex. They were very helpful and I decided to use them for my case. They did a great job and helped me settle my case quickly for a large cash settlement. Since I didn't have a car they came to me. I thought that was very nice of them as well.

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.

Daisy Lopez was the best part of this law office. I feel she really tried to get things moving as quickly as possible. Now that I received my settlement I feel like I got more than I thought I would and definitely more than I would have received without hiring lawyers. Call them to see if they can help.

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.

This law firm happens to be in the building next to where I work. Someone had dropped off leaflets for their firm at my office and I always kept their card in my Rolodex never knowing if I'd need it. I finally did need a personal injury lawyer and I called them. I'm so glad I did because they put me at ease and were able to take care of nearly everything related to my car accident. Really nice lawyers.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      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.

      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.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
