If you have ever found yourself injured at someone’s home or business, then chances are you have worked with a personal injury lawyer. If you haven’t been in this situation, then you are lucky. If you are unsure what a personal injury lawyer is, then let me explain.
What Does a Personal Injury Attorney Do?
A personal injury lawyer is someone who deals with private and civil wrongs and injuries. This includes slip and fall accidents, breaches of contracts, defamation, and much, much, more. They specialize in what is called ‘tort’ law, and their main focus and goal is to make sure that someone who has been injured is justly rewarded and to discourage the same behavior from continuing so that no one else has to go through the same thing.
These lawyers work tirelessly to make sure that the injured party receives the compensation that they are due. This includes any lost wages that they might be able to claim because they had to take time off work, medical expenses that they would have incurred because of the injury, and attorney fees.
They will also work to get compensation for loss of companionship due to the injury, emotional distress that the injured party would have had to endure, and their pain and suffering.
The personal injury lawyer that you decide to work with should also make sure that you do not fall victim to the insurance companies that are working for the plaintiff, and the legal system itself. They have their clients best interests at heart and want to make sure that they are awarded a fair amount as compensation for the accident that they were involved in.
What Does the Tort Law Cover?
Personal injury covers a large range of cases, that go from being bitten by your neighbor’s dog, to falling due to the negligence of a business owner not fixing a leaky pipe and the floor being slippery, to an airline that didn’t fix some faulty landing gear and you suffered emotional trauma from it.
There are many personal injury lawyers out there that offer free and no obligation meetings with you so that that can hear your case and determine if you have a leg to stand on. In this day and age people are so quick to try and sue people, but just because you THINK you were a victim of someone’s negligence does not mean that you actually were. An attorney will be able to help you navigate the waters of the legal system and will work to make sure that you are traveling down the right path.
