Is It Worth Hiring A Personal Injury Attorney?

Whether you have been injured in a car accident, slip and fall, dog bite, nursing home abuse or by any other type of negligence, Hoffman DiMuizio’s dedicated personal injury attorneys can make the difference in obtaining the compensation that you deserve.

Here are 5 clear reasons why hiring a Hoffman DiMuzio personal injury lawyer is well worth it.

Reason #1: Let Us Take the Risk – Contingent Fee Agreements

Hoffman DiMuzio handles personal injury matters on a contingent fee basis, which means that you will not ever pay your attorney one penny out of your pocket, no matter the outcome of your case. Hoffman DiMuzio would represent you and pay all litigation related costs, which can grow to tens of thousands of dollars due to escalating costs of medical and practical experts. If we obtain a settlement or verdict on your behalf, our firm would be reimbursed for costs and retain a percentage of the recovery based on NJ Court Rules, typically 331/3%. If we are unable to obtain a recovery, no matter what our firm has paid in expenses, you will owe us nothing.

Reason #2: Insurance Companies DON’T WANT TO PAY YOU

We have all had interactions with our own insurance companies that could be described as unpleasant. Now imagine that you are not a customer of that insurance company, and you can begin to see that attempting to obtain a settlement may not be a walk in the park. When someone makes a claim for injuries, insurance companies typically take a very defensive stance and will often claim they are not liable. Even when they accept liability, they will argue you were not injured by the accident. The greater your injuries, the greater risk they face and the harder they will dig in and fight. That is why you need to have attorneys who will fight for you to make sure you get the justice and compensation you deserve.

Reason #3:  Greater the Injury, Greater the Costs

Typically, the more significant the injury you have suffered, the more it will cost to litigate your case. This is because plaintiffs are required to prove their injuries based on objective medical evidence and/or industry practices, such as opinions of doctors or accident reconstructionists. Often times that will lead to the need to have multiple experts provide opinions and testimony, which can often costs thousands, if not tens of thousands of dollars to obtain. Hoffman DiMuzio would take on these costs to litigate your case, while utilizing only those experts who are at the top of their field.

Reason #4: Attorney-represented Plaintiffs Receive Larger Recoveries

Based on a study by the Insurance Research Council, a plaintiff who is represented by an attorney receives a settlement nearly 3.5 times greater than if they try to handle their claim alone. Why is this? Because the process of obtaining a settlement, let alone going to trial and winning a jury verdict, is fraught with possible hurdles that experienced attorneys are trained to navigate. Just for example:

  • What if the driver who caused your accident does not have insurance?
  • What if the area where you slipped and fell is owned by the State?
  • What if the Judge says I need to offer expert testimony or my case will be dismissed?

These types of issues are only a small sampling of what our personal injury lawyers must handle every day and one mistake could prevent you from getting a full and fair recovery.

Reason #5: Do You Know What Your Case is Worth?

If you asked 5 people off the street what your case is worth, we can bet you would get 5 different answers. This is not only because everyone seems to know someone who got an injury settlement but because a lot about personal injury law has been shaded by extensive lobbying by insurance companies that has infiltrated popular culture and has warped a generation of Americans into thinking plaintiffs make off with huge sums for even minor injuries. That is simply not the case, as many factors will influence how an insurance company and/or a jury will value your case, such as:

  • How significant are the injuries and what are the long-term effects and/or related costs?
  • How much insurance coverage is available?
  • Is liability clear or in question?
  • How much have similar cases resolved for?
  • Are there significant medical liens involved?
  • Is the plaintiff’s lawyer experienced or new to the field?

Is it worth hiring a personal injury attorney? Yes.

This page could be filled with just the factors that go into such an analysis and it likely would not cover them all. Hoffman DiMuzio has the reputation built on over forty years of practice in our area as we recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for our clients in that time.
