Looking for an Injury Lawyer or Attorney?
Definitions on the web:
A personal injury lawyer is a lawyer who provides legal representation to those who claim to have been injured, physically or psychologically, as a result of the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, company, government agency, or other entity. Thus, personal injury lawyers tend to be especially knowledgeable and have more experience with regard to the area of law known as tort law, which includes civil wrongs and economic or non-economic damages to a person’s property, reputation, or rights.
Even though personal injury lawyers are trained and licensed to practice virtually any field of law, they generally only handle cases that fall under tort law including, but not limited to: work injuries, automobile and other accidents, defective products, medical mistakes, slip and fall accidents, and more.
The expression "trial lawyers" can refer to personal injury lawyers,  even though most cases handled by personal injury lawyers settle rather than going to trial and other types of lawyers, such as defendants' lawyers and criminal prosecutors, also appear in trials.
Personal injury is any physical or mental injury suffered by an individual that is the result of another party’s negligence or wrongful act. There are so many things to consider when determining how much a personal injury claim is worth, and it can be tough to set a dollar amount on injuries you suffer in an accident. You may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, time lost from work, medical costs for ongoing injuries, pain and suffering, and so on. There is no formula that a jury or a judge is required to use in order to determine these damages and the compensation is based on an individual situation. However, an attorney may be able to help estimate the value of your claim based on similar cases that have been decided in the past. For more information about your specific legal claim, it is best to speak with a qualified personal injury lawyer in your area, as found on this site, to discuss your litigation options.
