What Is a Personal Injury Attorney?

A personal injury attorney advocates for clients and fights for their just compensation after sustaining an injury caused by the negligent actions of another person or entity. Their duties can include collecting and documenting essential evidence and information, intermediating between their clients and others involved in the legal proceedings, and ensuring their clients' rights and entitlements are protected. Below is a list of the most common types of personal injury claims for which you could receive compensation.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

If you're a driver, passenger, or pedestrian injured by another driver, you can file a claim. Auto collisions can occur between one or multiple vehicles. A driver can be held liable for your injuries if they were sober, intoxicated, or under the influence of substances.

Workplace Accidents

You may be able to hold your employer accountable if you were injured on the job because of negligence. The types of negligence can include inadequate employee training, failure to establish safety protocols and measures, or operating damaged, broken, or dysfunctional equipment.

Property Accidents

A claim against a property owner or manager may be filed if an avoidable injury occurs. Properties that can be held liable can be residential or commercial. Many accidents on properties occur due to hazardous conditions and failure to make required repairs on the premises.
