A personal injury attorney is a licensed legal professional who focuses on personal injury and tort law. They specialize in physical, psychological, and other personal injury aspects and represent a range of cases, from dog bites and car accidents to medical malpractice and wrongful death suits. They handle personal injury cases from start to finish, and they represent, negotiate, and litigate on their clients’ behalf to receive justice and compensation for their losses. They meet with prospective clients to evaluate potential personal injury claims and provide legal advice. Personal injury attorneys draft, review, and modify legal documents, conduct legal research, and gather relevant evidence. They update the status of all case files and manage their support team of legal professionals. When not in court, they typically work at a general law office or personal injury law firm.
