What is a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Personal injury lawyers specialize in an area of law known as tort law which includes private or civil wrongs or injuries, including defamation and actions for bad faith breach of contract. The main goal of tort law is to make the injured party whole and to discourage others from committing the same offense.

  • Bicycle Accidents
  • Birth Injuries
  • Boating Accidents

What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?

Personal injury lawyers handle a case from inception through appeal and perform tasks similar to most litigators. Typical tasks include:

What is a Personal Injury Lawyer?
1) investigating claims; 
2) screening potential clients and evaluating the merits of their case;
3) gathering evidence;
4) formulating legal theories;
5) researching case law;
6) drafting pleadings, motions and discovery;
7) interviewing and deposing witnesses;
8) preparing for trial;
9) advocating at trial;
10) counseling clients.

Personal injury lawyers often juggle large case loads, tight deadlines and demanding clients. However, many lawyers find the most rewarding aspect of personal injury practice is helping injured victims and their families seek justice through the legal system.

Since many personal injury lawsuits are extremely complex, personal injury lawyers may specialize in certain niche types of cases. For example, personal injury attorneys who handle medical malpractice may specialize in breach births; personal injury attorneys who routinely litigate motor vehicle accidents may specialize in ATV rollover accidents.
