A personal injury occurs when a person has
suffered some form of injury, either physical or psychological, as
the result of an accident.
A personal injury lawyer
is a lawyer who provides legal representation to those who claim
to have been injured, physically or psychologically, as a result of the
negligence or wrongdoing of another person, company, government agency, or
other entity. Thus, personal injury lawyers tend to be especially
knowledgeable and have more experience with regard to the area of law
known as tort law, which includes civil wrongs and economic or
non-economic damages to a person’s property, reputation, or rights.
