A personal injury lawyer represents injury victims who have sustained physical, psychological and/or economic damages caused by the negligent or intentional conduct of a third party. A personal injury lawyer fights on your behalf if you’ve been injured to help you obtain the medical treatment necessary to heal as quickly as possible and to protect and obtain the maximum amount of money damages available to you as a result of the injuries. The injuries may are often the result of an auto or truck accident caused by the negligence of another driver, or by malicious intent of another person such as an assault, or it could be at the hands of a business, government or other entity. Personal injury lawyers specialize in tort law, which is the law of civil wrongs like car accidents, truck accidents, or company wrongdoing.
To become qualified to be a personal injury lawyer in the United States, a person must earn a bachelor’s degree, followed by a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from an accredited law school and then must pass the bar exam to become licensed to practice law. Unlike many attorneys who require an up front, out of pocket retainer, personal injury lawyers usually work on a contingency fee basis. This means that in lieu of payment upfront, they only get paid if they are able to obtain a recovery for you in your case as a percentage of the settlement in case of a win.
