"I was involved in a truck accident on a main highway in St Louis. Me vehicle was hit by two tractor-trailers. After being released from the hospital I realized that I needed to pursue a legal course of action. As you know, there sre numerous attorney firms that constantly advertise using the phrase: “…we can get you what you deserve". I then contacted several attorneys to see what they thought of my case. Some were quick to want me to sign a contract. I ultimately signed with one attorney firm who assured me that they eere large and handled several trucking cases. After no contact and being ignored, I was able to cancel the contract. Finally, after interviewing several other truck litigation attorneys, I felt like giving up. I was referred to Schultz and Meyers. Stephen Schultz and Aaron Vogel handled the case. Both shared responsibility and worked through the difficulties of the case. Unlike other law firms, they did not make an initial showing and then assigned the case to a junior inrxperienced partner. Throughout the preparation of the case, they always maintained a high level of communication. When the case was approaching trial, they did not play the old game of: split the difference". A lot of attorneys do the split the difference to get rid of case and move onto something else, thereby leaving money on the table that could have enhanced their client. Let me assure you that this law firm went to full length and certainly re-defined the phrase: “Get what you deserve". This firm deserves to be recognized for setting a high-bar and not playing the game of taking on as many cases that flow through the pipe and hoping that some will generate money to their pocket, putting the client's interest secondary."

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.
