A personal injury attorney is an attorney who offers legal services to individuals who claim to have been personally injured, either physically or mentally, due to the negligence of some other individual, organization, government agency or corporation. NJ Injury Guys, Elizabeth is an excellent resource for this. Personal injury attorneys primarily practice in the field of civil law referred to as tort law. The Tort law contains areas such as negligence, professional misconduct, professional liability and wrongful death. Personal injury attorneys are also called “pleasure dogs” because in most state, they are required to maintain a bond, which serves as protection from any claim by an individual who may be harmed by the negligence or misconduct of the attorney.

 

An attorney can provide personal injury attorney services to deal with all aspects of litigation, ranging from investigation and evaluation of the claim to preparation and argumentative stages. Personal Injury attorneys are expert in handling all types of claims from slip and fall injuries to employment-related accidents and medical malpractice. Most attorneys also handle the entire settlement process, so that the victim is able to gain the maximum compensation for the harm done. In many personal injury cases, the victim may not be able to pursue legal proceedings against the party responsible for his or her injuries because the statute of limitations for such claims has expired. The attorney then steps into this gap in order to file a lawsuit on behalf of the client.

In certain cases, where the victim is the victim of wrongful death, the family of the deceased may not seek redress through the court system but instead settle with the party responsible for the death. This is why personal injury attorneys are so vital to ensure that the proper measures are taken to hold those accountable for wrongful death. Some states have already taken steps to limit the damages that may be awarded in such cases through statutes of limitations laws. Other states have made it mandatory for such cases to be investigated by private law enforcement agencies within a certain amount of time after the incident. Personal injury attorneys are there to help their clients seek justice and fair compensation from those responsible.
