How Do You Know if a Personal Injury Lawyer Near Me Is Top Rated?

Look at Several Pages of the Injury Lawyer’s Website

Does the lawyer provide useful information showing substantial knowledge of personal injury law or does the website look like it was written by a website company?

Take a look at a couple of our pages:

Ask Your Friends If They Could Call Their Personal Injury Lawyer

Ask your friends if they could call their personal injury lawyer. We bet they could only get to speak with a lawyer when they hired the lawyer. The two voicemails below prove you can call us almost anytime.

There Used to Be Two Advantages of a Personal Injury Lawyer Near Me

  1. Your attorney is near the court where your case is.
  2. It’s easy to see your attorney anytime you want.

The first reason is no longer necessary and the second reason is a delusion.

Your Personal Injury Attorney Is Near the Court Where Your Case Is

Lawyers previously had to go to court all the time. Your lawyer would have to go to court to purchase an index number to start your personal injury lawsuit and go back to court to file various papers.

Several court appearances were necessary for motions (a motion is a written argument submitted to the court asking for a court order). Motions used to be filed in court on paper but the lawyer also had to go to court to orally argue the motion.

Today, lawsuits in New York are started by e-filing court papers. The Summons and Complaint are filed online at the court website and the index number is paid by credit card. Motions are uploaded electronically to the court’s website and are no longer orally argued.

All case documents are uploaded electronically to the court’s website and are immediately served upon all parties through the court’s website by email. Your lawyer doesn’t have to go to court anymore unless your case goes to trial. According to this article, 97% of cases are settled but with car accidents and motorcycle accidents, almost all are settled because we often get the entire insurance policy limit.

Almost everything is done in court through the Internet!

Your Personal Injury Lawyer Can Work on Your Case Anywhere There is an Internet Connection

I have answered calls from clients while cruising the Mediterranean and on the Av. des Champs-Élysées in Paris (like Fifth Avenue in New York City).

I answered emails, researched Westlaw, and uploaded motion papers from my balcony on the cruise ship Jewel of the Seas in the Mediterranean, just like I was in my New York personal injury office. Here I am working on my balcony of the cruise ship.

If My Personal Injury Lawyer Is Near Me is It Easier for Me to See My Lawyer?

Unfortunately, no. The reality is that most personal injury clients can’t see their lawyer when they want to. They can’t even get their lawyer on the phone. Just try to call your lawyer after you sign a retainer. You’ll only speak with a secretary or paralegal. But you can always call one of the Founding Partners at 1-800-HURT-911® on our personal phones.

If you were injured in an accident before, you probably already know that you couldn’t get an appointment to see your lawyer when you wanted to discuss your case. Chances are you couldn’t even speak to your lawyer and could only get a paralegal on the phone.

even if this personal injury lawyer is near me, you won't see this invisible lawyer after signing a retainer

You won’t see this personal injury lawyer near you after he gets your case!

The only time most personal injury attorneys meet their clients is to sign up the case and if a lawsuit is started, maybe an hour before their deposition. See how we prepare our clients in our office.

Some personal injury lawyers will have you come to the office every time they want you to sign papers. But you won’t see your lawyer, you’ll just see a paralegal. You don’t have to come to our office to sign papers. We can either mail the papers to you with a self-addressed stamped envelope or email them to you which gets your case moving faster.

We have office locations throughout the New York City and Long Island metropolitan area but we usually have new personal injury clients sign a retainer by email so we can begin working on your case immediately after your accident.

If it’s convenient for you and you would like to meet with us, we can meet with you, no matter where you are. We can even come to see you if you’re in upstate New York.

You can call us seven days/nights by phone so you don’t have to come into our office just to ask a question or find out the status of your case. We always take calls on our personal phones, seven days/nights. That’s why I took calls from clients in Paris and the Mediterranean.

There are very rare times when even we can’t be reached but we’ll call back right away or you can try us a couple of hours later. Phil Franckel even answered a client’s call while in the recovery room still groggy from anesthesia!

We have many personal injury clients we never met. Often our clients develop a personal relationship with us by phone and when it’s time to send a settlement check, they ask if they could come to meet us. Of course, any time our clients want to come to meet us, we welcome that.

How to Find a Reputable Personal Injury Lawyer Near Me

Some people search for “how to find a reputable personal injury lawyer”. Partner Attorney Philip L. Franckel, Esq. has always maintained a top credit rating with a FICO score ranging from 840 -850 (850 is the highest score possible). Unfortunately, there seems to be a personal injury lawyer disbarred every month for taking money from a client escrow account. We don’t have money problems and with the highest financial ethics, Phil Franckel has always maintained a high credit score since high school.

I Don’t Need to Find an Accident Lawyer Near Me, What Do I Need?

You need access by phone to speak with your accident lawyer, not a paralegal, whenever you have a question. Sometimes, a paralegal can answer your question but many times you really want to speak with your lawyer.

See our personal injury FAQs but feel free to call us anytime.

Are Morgan and Morgan Personal Injury Lawyers Near Me in New York?

Since personal injury lawyers no longer need to be near you, many out-of-town law firms like Cellino & Barnes (from Rochester, NY) and out-of-state law firms like Morgan and Morgan (from FL) are advertising for personal injury clients and accidents in the New York City area.

While out-of-state law firms like Morgan and Morgan can handle your New York accident case, do you really think you’ll ever get to speak to your lawyer?

Morgan and Morgan say size matters but 1-800-HURT-911® is originally from New York and we’re a large injury law firm where you can always reach a partner by phone 7 days/nights.
