I reached out to Ramesh Reddy after a serious car accident which totaled my car and left me with significant medical issues.  The other party had retained an attorney, and I was intimidated by the process and unsure of how to navigate the complexities of personal injury litigation and the various insurance companies' requests.  Ramesh took all the time required to understand my specific needs, talk me through my options, and then help me develop a legal strategy that I was comfortable with and in control of.  I'm an attorney myself, and it was clear from our first conversation that I could have complete confidence in Ramesh's competence, professionalism, and genuine concern for me as his client.

Jeff handled my personal injury case with fantastic communication and helpfulness, even working with the medical providers to lower my costs so that I received better compensation. Highly recommended.

Trying to handle the claim yourself usually results in problems in the future. The insurance company will often calculate your weekly benefits check wrong, will wrongfully delay your first check, will schedule doctor appointments that are not legally required, will steer you to a company-oriented doctor and, in general, will handle the case in a way most advantageous to them rather than to you.

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.
