A: All personal injury attorneys offer free constructions.

You should contact one who is Certified by the NJ Supreme Court as a Civil Trial Lawyer.

They can tell you your rights and evaluate whether you have a case.

A: You can hire an attorney to represent you for the case, but they will charge you a fee, but in general its only if you collect money for your injury and it will be a percentage of the recovery generally 1/3. The case generally starts with a FREE in office consultation where the attorney will go over the facts of your case to determine how much he/she thinks she can recover for you. Since your injuries appear to be substantial, you can probably recovery a large sum in a settlement. Click on an attorneys profile to determine who you think will be the best attorney for your case as the fee for the attorney will generally be the same a set portion of your settlement.

A: You do not need to look for a pro bono lawyer. Personal injury cases are not typically handled like that. The way it usually works is that attorneys handle such cases on a contingency basis, meaning they only get paid a percentage of your award upon a favorable outcome (a settlement or jury verdict in your favor). A typical percentage is one-third. You could reach out to attorneys to discuss. Most injury law firms offer a free initial consults. You could use the Find-a-Lawyer tab above to browse through listings for attorneys who handle such cases, and you could search on your own. I'm sorry for your injuries and ordeal. Best of luck for a healthy recovery.
