What Is An Accident And Injury Lawyer?

An accident and injury lawyer (or personal injury lawyer) is a lawyer that provides professional legal services to people that have suffered an injury (whether physical, financial or mental) that can be shown to be the result of negligence on the part of a person, company, government body or other responsible entity that is tasked from preventing such occurrences. These injuries typically occur as a result of personal accidents (such as slipping or falling), as a result of traffic accidents, from defective products, injuries in the workplace or malpractice on the part of professionals (such as doctors).

A lawyer will provide legal representation to individuals who are seeking compensation for any damages they have suffered. This can include medical expenses, loss of income, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life or pain and suffering. They often work on a contingency basis where they only charge a fee when recompense has been gained in the form of damages after a successful verdict.
