We are transparent throughout all legal proceedings, keeping you well-informed on any developments or moves we make to ensure you receive the recovery you deserve. We welcome any questions or feedback throughout the process, and we will not take major steps without your approval. If we believe you can maximize your recovery by taking your case to trial, we will do so – but not without informing you first of our intentions. Ultimately, we are there to advocate for your needs – not to push our own agenda.

Our No-Fee Promise Guarantees Exemplary Service – Every Time

We understand that serious accidents can have a sudden financial impact on individuals and their families, leaving them unable to retain legal representation for their case – or receive less-than-stellar counsel from cut-rate firms.

At Console & Associates PC, we sympathize with your situation and operate under a No Fee Promise for all of our clients. We do not charge any initial fees or upfront legal costs, and we never charge any hourly costs throughout the proceedings. All expenses are advanced, and there are no out-of-pocket costs whatsoever. If we do not secure a favorable verdict or settlement on your behalf, you pay nothing. If we do win, all of your medical bills are covered before we take a percentage of the damages for our fees.

This arrangement allows you to receive the best legal service without worrying about whether or not you can afford it. Additionally, it allows us to give you the best possible representation without being preoccupied by hourly fees, invoices, and any other extraneous distractions.

What to Expect

How to get started

The first step is to call our office at 856-778-5500.

The call is free and there’s no obligation to proceed. We’ll give you straight answers about your options and if we cant help you, we’ll put you in touch with someone who can.

What to expect when we take your case

Our process begins by preparing your case for trial from day one and if need be, we’ll fight for you in court. However, insurance companies know how experienced and diligent we are and very few are willing to take the risk of trying a claim against us.

As a result, only a small percentage of our cases go to trial.
Here are just some of the things we’ll take care of for you so you can focus on your well-being:

  • Investigate your accident to identify who’s at fault for the harm you suffered
  • Collect photographs, witness statements, and other pieces of evidence to support your claim
  • Open your claim with the insurance company
  • Handle all paperwork and phone calls with insurance adjusters
  • Keep in contact with your doctors so we know when it’s time to move forward with your claim
  • Keep track of your medical bills and any other expenses that contribute to the damages we’ll be seeking compensation for on your behalf

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Personal Injury?

Personal injury is a broad term that refers to physical harm. It does not cover cases such as property damage or defamation.

In a personal injury claim, you, as the plaintiff, are suing another person or party, called the defendant, for causing your accident. Typically, the claim seeks to receive compensation from the at-fault person’s insurance company, rather than the individual.

The money damages you recover in a personal injury lawsuit can help bring your life back to normal or help you discover a “new normal” your family can live with. Often, our clients use their settlements to afford top-quality medical care, make up for the income they missed out on while injured, or adjust their homes and other parts of their lives to make getting around more manageable in spite of the injury.

Our personal injury attorneys have conveniently-located offices in Marlton, Cherry Hill, and Newark, NJ, as well as Philadelphia, PA. We’re ready and waiting to serve you at each of our local offices.

Are There Different Types of Personal Injury?

Yes! Personal injury law covers a variety of accident types, including:

  • Medical Malpractice: Medical malpractice covers any case where preventable injuries occurred due to errors or negligence on the part of a doctor or other healthcare provider. Some medical malpractice case types are:
  • Misdiagnosis: When the doctor or hospital treats you for the wrong condition.
  • Delayed Diagnosis: When the doctor misses symptoms of a serious condition, like cancer or a stroke. The delay in getting the right treatment can result in serious, preventable injury.
  • Infection: When you contract a preventable infection or other illness after surgery due to unsanitary conditions in a hospital, outpatient surgery center, or other medical facility.
  • Negligence: When a doctor or hospital’s inattention to their patient results in serious injury. Many different types of errors can fall under the category of medical negligence.
  • Auto Accidents: Auto accidents cover any personal injury that involves a vehicle. At Console and Associates, we’ve successfully handled thousands of auto accident claims, including:
    • Distracted/Drunk Driving
    • Passenger Accidents
    • Hit and Run
    • Pedestrian Accidents
    • Motorcycle Accidents
    • Cyclist Accidents
    • Truck Accidents
    • Public Transport
    • Ride Sharing Accidents
  • Premises Liability: Premises liability covers any injury or accident that happens while you’re on someone else’s property. This can include private property, like someone’s home, or commercial property, like a retail shopping location. One of the most common examples of premises liability is an injury due to a slip, trip, or fall accident. Other examples include:
  • Dog Bites: Unfortunately, pet dogs can inflict serious wounds. If someone else’s dog injured you, we will fight to hold the owner responsible. Our dog bite lawyers work with the defendant’s homeowner’s or renter’s insurance company to get you the money you deserve.
  • Assault & Inadequate Security: Company-owned properties have a responsibility to keep you safe. If you are a victim of assault and believe the attack would have been preventable by proper security, we are here to help you hold the property owner responsible for it.
  • Worker’s Compensation: Worker’s compensation insurance was designed to help cover your medical costs if you were injured on the job. However, if your injury was caused by a defective or unsafe product, you may be able to file what’s called a third-party liability claim. Our worker’s compensation lawyers can help.
What Makes Up a Personal Injury Claim?

To make a successful claim, you’ll need two pieces of information:

  1. Proof of Negligence
  • You need to prove that someone else was at fault for the injury. Proving negligence shows that someone else’s carelessness caused the accident.
  • In an auto claim, for instance, the negligent party may be a reckless driver. Similarly, for slip and fall claims, neglectful property owners can be deemed negligent.
  • A qualified legal team can help you through the difficult process of proving negligence. Our firm is up to the task with over 25 years of experience in the field. We only take on personal injury cases, so you can be assured that we know the ins and outs of the process.
  1. Sum of Damages
  • You’ll also need to determine your damages, sometimes referred to as monetary or money damages. To do this, you will need to put a number on how much you suffered as a result of your accident.
  • Damages in a personal injury claim can encompass several factors. Some examples include:
    • Costs of medical bills – Costs of any ongoing or expected future medical treatments.
    • Lost wages – Income you’ve lost as a result of being unable to work
    • Pain and Suffering – Pain and suffering is a legal term used to describe the physical and emotional damage you endured. Although it is hard to put a price tag on this kind of suffering, you deserve compensation for what you have been through.
    • Our team can help you navigate the process of determining damages. We will figure out what you are entitled to and fight for every last penny.
What Does the Process Look Like?

The personal injury claims process is complicated. An experienced firm like ours will be there to help every step of the way, so you can focus on recovery instead of a legal battle. Letting us handle your case is about more than managing your claim. It means fewer things you have to worry about.

It is important to take care of your injuries first. Never put off medical treatment. Not going to the doctor right away isn’t just bad for your health but also for your claim. Insurance companies need to see that you sought treatment right away, or they may argue that you weren’t really hurt in the accident.

Next, you’ll want to call a personal injury lawyer. What we do is guide you through the process, compile the necessary documentation for a claim, and do the work needed to get you financial compensation.

Your attorney will be there to handle insurance company interactions. At the end of the day, insurance companies are businesses. They will fight hard to pay out as little as possible. We are here to fight back harder. Our team will work tirelessly to help you win the compensation you deserve.

How Much is My Claim Worth?

When our experienced attorneys figure out the value of your claim, we’re looking primarily at three components: your injuries and resulting medical bills, your lost wages, and the pain and suffering you’ve endured.

Injuries and medical expenses

Getting the right medical care is critical to properly treating your injuries, but it also serves a second essential purpose for your case: documenting those injuries. Insurance companies will probably argue that your injuries aren’t serious in order to get out of paying what you deserve. But your medical records show otherwise. The extent of the medical expenses you incur is a good indicator of how much your case is worth. An injury that requires extensive, ongoing treatment and racks up tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills will generally be worth more than an injury that resolves within a few weeks and results in a smaller medical expense.

Loss of Wages

Accidents can cause injuries serious enough to keep you out of work. At Console and Associates‚ we fight to get you compensation for any lost wages that result from the accident. With a serious injury, it could take weeks or months until you return to work, if you’re able to return at all.

Pain and Suffering

Unfortunately, there’s nothing we or anyone else can do to reverse the accident. We can’t prevent you from having to endure the physical and emotional consequences of your injury. What we can do is get you compensation for the pain you have experienced and the suffering the injury has caused you. The accident disrupted your entire life. Our role is to fight for justice and secure the settlement you need to get your life back on track.

Of course, there are other factors that affect the value of a personal injury claim, too. That’s why you can’t use a simple formula to figure out how much money you truly deserve. Since each claim is so unique, the most accurate way to figure out how much you might be owed is to call us. An attorney will analyze all of the details of your claim and let you know what your options are.

If you’re wondering whether hiring a lawyer is really worth the cost, consider this: People who let an attorney file a personal injury claim on their behalf get settlements that are, on average, 3.5 times greater than what they would receive if they fought the insurance company or responsible party on their own.

Choosing a Personal Injury Lawyer

When you’re seriously hurt due to someone else’s negligence, you need a personal injury lawyer who always puts clients first and isn’t afraid to fight for your rights. At Console and Associates‚ we take pride in how hard we work to be there for you in every way. We develop personal relationships with our clients. We are here to listen, to help you navigate your medical treatment, to help you meet your statute of limitations deadlines, to uncover the full extent of your damages, and to handle calls with the insurance company. Let us know what problems you’re facing. You might be surprised how much we can help with.

We’ve handled personal injury cases of all types and have recovered large settlements for victims of car accidents, slip and fall injuries, and other types of accidents in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

We’re in it to win it for you. If we can’t secure you a settlement‚ you don’t owe us a dime.

What Does "No-Fee Promise" Mean?

Our No Fee Promise is very simple: We never charge you anything for our services until you win your claim.

From our first conversation until the day we reach settlement, you’ll never pay a penny for us to handle your claim.

Console and Associates’ No Fee Promise aligns our goals with yours. Rather than charge you an hourly rate, we take a portion of the final settlement as payment. That means the amount of money we receive as payment is directly related to the amount of money you receive in your settlement. This is known as a contingency fee.

Contingency fee structures benefit the plaintiffs in personal injury matters. Lawyers who charge hourly fees or flat costs don’t necessarily care if you win or lose. Attorneys who bill hourly will often rack up as many hours as possible to make the most money. On the other hand, if a lawyer charges a flat fee, your personal injury case might only get a few hours of their attention. With our contingency fee structure, you know that your attorneys have your best interests at heart. The more money we get for you, the more we make, too.

At Console and Associates, we put in as much time and energy as is needed to help you win your case. If we can’t successfully reach a settlement, you owe us nothing. It’s that simple.

Why Trust Console and Associates?

We are real people who have experienced injuries, too.

People often feel that attorneys are not compassionate and focus mostly on the details of the law. While we do work diligently on every detail of your case, we are dedicated because we have been in your shoes. Our lawyers have experienced pain, mistreatment, and negligence, and so have many of our close family members and friends. We fight for justice because we know firsthand the pain and confusion a serious injury can cause. We understand all too well how you feel right now, and we’ll do all we can to help make life after an accident easier on you.

We’ve been winning personal injury cases since 1994.

The team of lawyers and support staff at Console and Associates brings decades of experience to the table. When you work with us, you are tapping into our extensive knowledge of the legal and insurance industries and following the guidance of lawyers who have seen it all. It’s likely that we’ve worked on cases similar to yours in the past, and we already have a proven record of navigating the legal system and achieving favorable outcomes for our clients. Having experienced legal representation from a law firm like Console and Associates increases the chances that you win your suit.

Bringing a case against an employer, an insurance company, or a private individual doesn’t have to be difficult or scary. We handle the complexities of personal injury law every day. By taking on the full responsibility of managing the claim, we make this otherwise challenging process very easy on you.

We want you to have the help you deserve.

The reason people pay for insurance is so that, if someone gets injured in some sort of accident, their insurance will take care of the financial costs. Yet you would be surprised how hard it can be to get this to happen. The insurance company wants to keep as much of its money as possible, even when you’re rightfully entitled to a payout.

And they have entire teams of employees whose job is to do just that.

It can be overwhelming to think of the financial burden on your family when an insurance company rejects your claim or minimizes your pain. You may feel victimized all over again – but you don’t have to put up with this behavior.

We believe in standing up for individuals who have been burdened by increasing medical bills and other expenses due to the combination of an injury that is not their fault and the insurance companies that are more interested in profit than doing their jobs. Let us use our experience and knowledge of the law to navigate these complex situations while you focus on healing and recovering after a traumatic injury.

Don’t wait for the statute of limitations to take away your legal rights, or for you to feel too overwhelmed by the claims process to know what to do next. Start getting help right now, before your legal claim becomes a burden to your recovery and your family.

Contact Console and Associates today to get started working with a lawyer you can trust. Reach out to our personal injury lawyers at (856) 778-5500 for your free, private consultation.
