Why You Want a Lawyer Who Specializes in Personal Injury Rather Than a “Jack of All Trades”

When you have been injured in an accident and are need of legal assistance it can be overwhelming trying to find the right injury lawyer in NJ for you. There are so many attorneys out there that “handle” personal injury claims, but in many instances this is just an area of law they dabble in rather than a specialty. Finding a lawyer who really knows the ins and outs of the personal injury legal system is imperative to ensuring that you receive maximum compensation for your accident.

“Jack of All Trades” Attorneys

What a lot of law firms do is spread out their legal services over a variety of case types. This means that in just one law firm you may have attorneys who are handling personal injury along with completely unrelated practice areas like divorce or real estate law. This will not be to your benefit because in this instance having many service offerings is not actually a plus.

Having lawyers who are handling a wide variety of cases means they are constantly dealing with very different case law, and rather than becoming proficient in one area they can be just lackluster in many areas. At these types of law firms you may end up being assigned to an attorney who has only handled a handful of personal injury claims, and they may not have the skill set necessary to overcome many of the obstacles that can arise in these types of cases.

To put this into perspective, think of your medical care. If you are suffering from a simple illness such as a cold or the flu it would stand to reason that seeing your general practitioner would suffice. However, say you are experiencing troubles with your heart, would you rather see a general practitioner or a cardiologist? In a case such as this, a specialist would have more knowledge and experience with these types of troubles and therefore would probably be the better option.

In any field, seeing someone who has a specialized focus in a given area generally equates to a more satisfying experience.

Why Hire a Lawyer Who Focuses Only on Personal Injury

You should hire an attorney who specializes in personal injury law to handle your accident claim for the same reason that you would go to the dentist for a problem with your teeth—it is what they do and they can provide the service you are looking for. Being injured in an accident is hard enough without ending up in a situation where you do not receive the compensation that your case warrants.
