What Is a Personal Injury Lawyer?
The definition of personal injury is “injury which is caused accidentally by another’s failure to use reasonable care.” That means that our job is generally to determine if your accident was caused due to negligence or recklessness and then determine what compensation for that accident includes.
Common examples of personal injury cases include:
- Car and truck accidents
- Bicycle or pedestrian accidents
- Boat collisions
- Intentional Acts
- Airplane accidents
- Accidents in general
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Construction accidents or violations
- Defective products
- Wrongful death
- Nursing home neglect or injury
- Medical malpractice or negligence
Where does a personal injury attorney come in?
Our job is to prove that your (the plaintiff) injury was caused by something someone else (the defendant) did (or failed to do).
