Cases involving brain, spinal cord, and other catastrophic injuries often arise out of cases involving the wrongful conduct of third parties, like trucking companies and large industrial or commercial operations. Traumatic brain injuries and paralysis are, in many respects, a fate worse than death. Those who have suffered such injuries are faced with moving forward with their lives after being hurt. Despite often having no way to work and earn a meaningful living, those people who have suffered these serious injures must find a way to pay significant medical expenses that have resulted from undergoing treatment.
The tort law system is established to assist in making arrangements for these difficult financial considerations facing individuals who have wrongfully suffered traumatic injuries as a result of the actions of other parties. However, it takes a knowledgeable attorney who is familiar with the tort law system—like managing partner Mike Conner—to successfully reach a fair and sufficient resolution to such cases.
Those who have suffered catastrophic injuries need the representation of a seasoned trial lawyer prepared to maximize his client’s recovery, not a television attorney who will settle the case at the first opportunity. The Conner Law Group has been recognized by the Super Lawyers rating services for excellence in representing personal injury clients. Bar associations and courts across the country have recognized the legitimacy of the Super Lawyers selection process. Most recently, the New Jersey Supreme Court upheld the findings of a Special Master assigned by the court to, among other things, examine the details of that process. In his July 2008 report, the Special Master praised the lawyer-rating process, stating:
“[The Super Lawyers selection process] is a comprehensive, good-faith and detailed attempt to produce a list of lawyers that have attained high peer recognition, meet ethical standards, and have demonstrated some degree of achievement in their field.”
“Suffice to say, the selection procedures employed by [Super Lawyers] are very sophisticated, comprehensive and complex.”
“It is absolutely clear from this record that [Super Lawyers does] not permit a lawyer to buy one’s way onto the list, nor is there any requirement for the purchase of any product for inclusion in the lists or any quid pro quo of any kind or nature associated with the evaluation and listing of an attorney or in the subsequent advertising of one’s inclusion in the lists.”
