Michael was amazing from beginning to end. He was truly invested in our case (car accident with head injury). He was always available, kept us informed on the status of the case, and always explained all the angles and possible scenarios. There were times when me and my wife were worn out but he was our rock. He never gave in after our first offer and even the second and third, but he always stayed aggressive to get us what we deserved, and he did that and more. He got us the maximum six-figure amount the insurance company had! I will always recommend him to anybody who needs an injury attorney.

My case has just begun. I've talked to other personal injury lawyers. The ONLY one who impressed me was, Mr. Bernez. He was compassionate and understanding. I was having a horrible experience with an insurance claim. My helplessness and fears have all been put to rest, thanks to Mr. Bernez. I'm actually hopeful for a very positive outcome.

Did a great job! Jeremy was very well prepared for my auto accident case. Jeremy got the insurance company to settle out of court in 3-1/2 years. I did a few phone interviews and only had to travel downtown 3 times.

    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.
