An accident and injury lawyer provides legal advice and services when you have been injured and believe that another person, company, government agency or any other entity is responsible for any loss you have suffered (this can be physical, mental or financial). Common personal injury claims include car accidents, injuries from slipping on a wet floor, injuries suffered in the workplace and malpractice by professionals.
A personal injury lawyer will represent you in a lawsuit against the person or entity that is responsible for your injury and will seek compensation on your behalf. They will interview you to determine the facts of the injury and advise you of any legal remedies that you may be entitled to receive. Often these lawyers specialize in particular forms of injury (such as traffic accidents) since different types of injury claims require specialized experience and knowledge.
