Personal Injury Lawyers
Personal injury lawyers provide legal representation services to people injured physically or psycholically due to an act of negligence by another party (person, company, government entity, or private business). The practice of personal injury law simply involves one party getting hurt, physically or psychologically, due to another party.
Within personal injury law, there are two main categories: cases arising from negligence and cases arising from an intentional act.
For example, an act of negligence can involve a business cleaning the floor with a wet mop and failing to put any warning signs to let people know to be careful because of a wet floor. If a person falls, slips, and gets hurt, that person can sue the business for negligence with the help of a personal injury attorney.
An intentional act could involve somone walking up to someone and causing deliberate harm. Because there was a motive for physical violence look to cause injury and harm, a personal injury lawyer can assist the plaintiff in court.
If you have been physically or psychologically (emotionally) injured, it's best that you consult with a personal injury lawyer to see if you have a basis for your case. You should be able to get a free or low cost consultation to see if it's in your best interest to take the other part to court.
