FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

A: First, contact us as soon as you can so that we may start investigating your case. Call us at 609-452-7333 and speak with one of our civil rights & personal injury trial attorneys or set an appointment to meet one of our attorneys in our Princeton New Jersey office. You may also fill out the Contact Us section at the bottom on this page. Your consultation is free.

A: All civil rights and personal injury cases are different. So it is impossible to pinpoint the exact worth of your case. But we may estimate the settlement or trial value by considering various factors including medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, earning potential, future medical expenses, loss of consortium, and the potential for punitive damages. Importantly, no attorney can guarantee the value of your case and you should be wary of any attorney who does so. 

A: Our fee schedule is set by the Supreme Court of New Jersey and is not collected unless your case is successful through settlement or jury verdict. So if we are not successful in your case, we will not collect a fee. If we are successful in your personal injury or civil rights case, we will charge a 33% (or 25% for infants and legally incompetent persons) fee after deducting litigation expenses from the settlement or jury verdict amount. In a civil rights case, we may collect that fee or a statutory attorney fee awarded by a court.  

A: It depends. If you were injured while at work, the majority of the economic loss resulting from the injury will likely fall under workers' compensation law. In that case, whether your injuries were caused by someone else's negligence or by your own actions, you must pursue your claim under workers' compensation law, only. That means you cannot hold your employer accountable for the injuries. But you may hold a third-party (such as a product manufacturer of a defective product, negligent driver or contractor, or any negligent party that is not your employer) accountable if they caused your injury. An attorney can evaluate the circumstances to determine who you may hold accountable for the harm.
