Are You A Victim Of An Injury?
Personal injury attorneys deal with what falls under Tort Law. Personal Injury involves civil law cases where you are trying to obtain compensation for a personal injury you sustained to your person. Personal Injury attorneys help you with any type of litigation involving physical injuries that you’ve sustained. Personal injury lawyers help you with cases that could arise from being involved in an automobile accident, a railroad accident, airline or other common carrier accident, a construction or other workplace accident, being injured as a result of a dangerous or otherwise unsafe product and other injury-causing situations. However, personal injuries don’t even necessarily have to be physical – they could also be psychological.
These attorneys categorize psychological personal injuries as those that are typically caused by psychological trauma associated with life-threatening and/or disfiguring physical injuries, or as a result of witnessing trauma in others, or following personal escape from serious injury following a traumatic event. Before you can collect an award, your personal injury lawyer will have to prove that the defendant is liable. To prove liability, your legal representative must also establish negligence. Easier said than done.

Typically, a P.I. lawyer will advise personal injury victims that if there is any failure on their part to exercise reasonable care to prevent injury or damage that there may be comparative (or contributory) negligence, where they and the other party both are at some degree of fault. If the personal injury victim wins, he/she may receive money (an award) to compensate for medical costs, lost wages, and lost future earnings as well as possibly for pain and suffering and punitive damages.
