What Does A Personal Injury Lawyer Actually Do?

A personal injury attorney is a lawyer who represents people who have been injured as a result of negligence or wrongdoing.

A personal injury attorney represents people who have been physically or emotionally injured due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, company, government agency, or other entity. Personal injury attorneys specialize in a branch of civil law known as tort law. Tort law covers many legal claims, including personal injury, wrongful death, property damage, and defamation. To successfully bring a personal injury claim, an attorney must be able to prove that the defendant was liable for the plaintiff’s injuries. This can be done by showing that the defendant acted negligently or intentionally harmed the plaintiff. If you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, you may need to hire a personal injury attorney to help you recover compensation for your losses.

Personal injury attorneys typically work on a contingency basis.

Most personal injury attorneys work on a contingency basis, meaning they only get paid if they win your case. This arrangement benefits the attorney and the client, giving the attorney an incentive to work hard on the case and get the best possible outcome. A contingency basis also allows people who cannot afford an expensive attorney to have access to quality legal representation still. If you are considering hiring a personal injury attorney, be sure to ask about their contingency arrangements so that you know what to expect.

If you’ve been injured, contact a personal injury attorney to discuss your case.
