If you believe that you have been injured either physically or psychologically by another entity, you will need legal representation for your claim. Personal injury attorneys are lawyers that handle such claims for you in the case of auto accidents, workplace injuries, injuries caused by medical procedures, and defective products. You may be injured in a fall caused by someone else’s negligence; for this you will need a lawyer that is experienced in pursuing your claim to recover damages.

Your attorney and his or her team will begin by sorting out the facts of the case, investigating the circumstances of the injury and preparing the legal arguments and strategy your case will require to successfully prosecute your claim against the other person, business, government agency or other entity. To achieve the justice and compensation that you deserve for your injury, your lawyer will build the strongest case possible.

While many personal injury cases settle before going to court, others can go to trial and you will want to make sure you have the best representation possible. It is your lawyer’s responsibility to advocate for your case, make oral arguments based on a solid legal foundation, counsel you as to your best options and offer you the best advice how to proceed with your case.

Some personal injury lawyers specialize in certain types of claims, whether they are accidents, work injuries or medical malpractice lawsuits. Experience and specialized knowledge are qualifications you will want to look for as you select a lawyer to represent you and your case.

Personal injury lawyers are licensed by the state bar association in the state in which they practice law. Only licensed attorneys are able to file lawsuits, argue cases in court, prepare legal documents and offer you advice on your case. Licensed attorneys are bound to legal ethics including competency and working both loyally and confidentially on your behalf.
