When finished, return to this page for more specifics on choosing an attorney in New Jersey.

New Jersey is 10th in population in the U. S., but is first when it comes to population density owing much to its status as a major industrial center. New Jersey also serves as a gateway between the borders cities of Philadelphia and New York City. But, New Jersey is not all industry as it leads in agricultural income per acre and is considered a leading think-tank hosting both Princeton and Rutgers universities.

The structure of the New Jersey courts are among the simplest in the nation with only a few basic types including municipal courts and the state Superior Court where most civil cases are tried. Most personal injury cases are litigated in either the Civil Division of the Superior Court (involving over $15,000) or in the Special Civil Part of the Civil Division (involving between $3,000 to $15,000). Approximately 560,000 civil cases are litigated in these courts each year, outnumbering all criminal cases more than 10 to 1.

New Jersey personal injury lawyers are scattered about the state with a large concentration in the Newark and surrounding areas within the northeast corner of the state. But, there are still plentiful personal injury lawyers in other parts of the state such as Camden, Atlantic City or even Lakewood. In choosing a qualified New Jersey personal injury attorney it is important to find one who is working in the same region as where the injury occurred and who has had a number of success personal injury trial results in this region.

Besides the typical questions one may ask a prospective New Jersey personal injury lawyer, one may also inquire about how long they have been with the state bar, what universities (hopefully local) they have attended, and how long they have specialized in personal injury work. Ask the New Jersey personal injury attorney about the politics in his / her region and how the political climate influences personal injury law for that region.

You may even wish to quiz the personal injury lawyer about case law to see if they are up-to-date. For instance, you may wish to ask about Prevratil v. Mohr involving a 3-way automobile accident or Matthews v. University Loft Company, which is about product liability involving a loft bed. If the prospective attorney is not up-to-date on these cases, then ask them about a more high-profile case such as Humeston v. Merck in which they should be very aware. In this product liability case, the jury sided with New Jersey pharmaceutical manufacturer Merck saying the manufacturer had adequately warned consumers about the dangers of Vioxx.

Remember to ask your New Jersey personal injury lawyer many questions as you're screening for the best representation. Take note of the attorney's people skills and the content of their answers to see if they have the background and experience that fit the needs of your particular case. In order to find a qualified attorney, you may wish to contact the New Jersey State Bar, which offers an attorney referral service by county. Friends, neighbors and colleagues are also viable resources in the search for quality representation.

No matter who you choose, make sure from the beginning there is good rapport between the two of you. The litigation process may be a lengthy one, so open communication and positive interpersonal feelings will make the process go that much more smoothly.
