If you were hurt in an accident, you should consider working with a personal injury lawyer right away. There are many things an experienced lawyer can help you with, such as evidence collection, witness interviews, and negotiations with defendants and their insurance companies.
Insurance companies often try to block claims or get injury victims to agree to low-dollar settlements. Without help, you could be left with no choice but to agree to a settlement that leaves out substantial compensation. Get the justice you deserve by having an attorney represent you in your injury case.

How a Personal Injury Attorney Can Help
When you are injured, your primary focus should be on your recovery. Make sure that you go to your doctor’s appointments, participate in physical therapy, and take care of your physical and mental health in the aftermath of your accident. Leave it to our attorneys to essentially handle the rest of your case.
Our Trenton personal injury lawyers can work on evidence collection, build your case, file insurance claims and lawsuits, and handle negotiations. Most of this can be taken care of for you so that you can focus on yourself and your family during this trying time. Nonetheless, our attorneys are still ethically required to represent your best interests and defer to you when it comes to decisions about when to settle, when to go to trial, etc.
Our attorneys can often collect evidence that you might not have thought of, such as security camera footage or witness statements from people who saw the accident happen. Sometimes tracking down the information can be difficult, but we will do what we can to get in touch with witnesses, take depositions, collect physical evidence, take photos, and more. Additionally, we can help you assemble the information you have – journal/diary entries, medical records, financial statements, etc. – to help build your case and calculate damages.
Building Your Case
Putting all of this information together into a strong legal argument will be an important part of our Trenton personal injury lawyers’ services. Creating a strong theory of the case that explains who was responsible and why they are legally at fault is part of our duties as your legal team. We can also address legal issues that the defendant brings up to head-off defenses and counterclaims that might arise.
Negotiating with Insurance
Many times, the defendant and their insurance companies will provide a settlement offer that is too low to cover all of your damages. When this happens, you may feel stuck, but our attorneys can fight back. We can appeal this low-dollar offer and seek to settle your case at a fair value. To accomplish this, we will calculate damages ourselves and find out what your case should truly be worth, then bring the evidence to prove this value to the negotiating table.
Representing You in Court
If your case cannot be settled for a fair value, we will take your case before a judge and jury to get you the compensation you deserve. At trial, we can present evidence and witnesses, challenge the defense’s witnesses and evidence, and argue your case to the jury.
Types of Cases Our Trenton Injury Attorneys Handle
Whether you were injured in a car accident, hurt at work, injured by a defective product, or set back by negligent medical care, our Trenton personal injury attorneys can help you with your case. Our lawyers handle a wide range of personal injury cases, including those listed below and far more:
Car crashes, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, and even pedestrian accidents are some of the most common cases our lawyers handle. These cases often involve aggressive car insurance companies that seek to limit your damages to avoid paying for pain and suffering. For help getting the compensation you deserve, contact a lawyer immediately.
Slip and Falls
Whether you slipped because of a spill, a loose floorboard, a dangerous flooring material, or even ice and snow on a sidewalk, our lawyers can help you receive compensation for your injuries. Slip and falls are another of the most common type of accident, but most people do not realize how serious these accidents can be. If you broke a bone, suffered a serious head injury, or suffered any other kind of physical injury, our attorneys can help you seek financial compensation.
Other Property Injuries
Although slip and falls might be the most common type of injury on someone else’s property, you can also face injuries from electrocution, falls from heights, structural collapses, burns, drowning, and more. All of these injuries are the kinds of accidents that our Trenton personal injury lawyers can help you sue the property owner for in a personal injury lawsuit.
Workplace and Construction Injuries
Injuries at work are sometimes difficult to get full compensation for. Insurance companies often are not obligated to pay pain and suffering damages, and there may be legal hoops you need to jump through to get the chance to file a lawsuit for your injuries. Our attorneys can help with these cases.
Medical malpractice cases often touch on negligent treatment by a physician – such as surgical errors, misdiagnosis, or birth injuries – or negligence at a hospital – such as contamination and infection, medication errors, or turning away patients from emergency care. Whatever type of medical malpractice case you have, our Trenton personal injury lawyers may be able to help.
