Personal injury is a very broad practice area. Some personal injury attorneys take a wide variety of personal injury cases, while others focus on specific injuries. For instance, personal injury covers auto and other vehicle accidents, slip and fall injuries, liable and slander, or injuries resulting from a defective product. When you’ve been injured in an accident or denied your legal rights, consulting with a personal injury attorney can be one of the most important decisions you make. An experienced personal injury attorney can evaluate your case and determine if you have grounds for a lawsuit. Strict laws govern how lawsuits can be filed and the deadlines for doing so. If you wait too long to sue, even a valid claim to can be denied in court. Finally, personal injury attorneys are skilled in negotiating with opposing council, making arguments in trial, and generally representing your interests in the legal process.
