What is a personal injury lawyer and why do you need one?
As defined by Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Personal_injury_lawyer
"A personal injury lawyer is a lawyer who provides legal representation to those who claim to have been injured, physically or psychologically, as a result of the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, company, government agency, or other entity. Thus, personal injury lawyers tend to be especially knowledgeable and have more experience with regard to the area of law known as tort law, which includes civil wrongs and economic or non-economic damages to a person's property, reputation, or rights."
Basically, a personal injury lawyer is an advocate for the rights of victims of some type of civil wrongdoing. A professional who has studied the law, passed Bar examinations and now practices law to protect the rights of those injured or affected by acts of negligence.
In some cases, personal injury lawyers have been criticized as money hungry predators that are only looking to make a quick buck from insurance companies or anyone with money. This could not be further from the truth. In most cases, personal injury lawyers take on major financial risks in order to represent their clients, with no guarantee of success. Personal injury attorneys advocate for clients who otherwise would not have the financial means or knowledge to represent themselves against an insurance company or court of law.
