Personal injury is a term used to define physical and mental injuries that occur due to someone else’s negligence, intentional activities or strict liabilities. Personal injury attorneys work with the victims of all kinds of accidents, including auto accidents, motorcycle crashes, truck crashes, boating accidents, plane crashes, workplace injuries and railroad accidents.
A personal injury attorney also helps you when you get injured during dental or medical malpractice, a defective product, nursing home abuse, a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property or a dog bite. Your personal injury attorney helps you in getting the money to pay your medical expenses, lost wages, temporary or permanent disabilities, etc.
Sometimes, regardless your injury type and extensively high medical bills, lost income, refusal of insurance company and governmental policies you need to hire an attorney. In these cases, something — what the lawyer can get minus the fee charged to get it — is better than nothing.
