injury lawyers deal exclusively with personal injury accident
victims. Personal Injury involves civil law cases as opposed
to criminal law cases which involve a defendant and the State
of California. In a personal injury accident case, you are
trying to obtain compensation for a physical or emotional
injury that you sustained as the result of the actions of
someone else. Attorneys help you with any type of litigation
involving the physical injuries that occurred due to the negligent
conduct of someone else. These cases could arise from being
involved in an automobile accident, a railroad accident, airline
or other common carrier accident, a construction or other
workplace accident, being injured as a result of a dangerous
or otherwise unsafe product and other injury-causing situations.
However, personal injury accident cases do not necessarily
have to involve a physical injury (broken bone, cuts, etc...);
they sometimes only involve psychological or emotional damages.
Only a skilled personal injury accident lawyer has the experience
to determine whether or not you have the type of injury that
would allow you to recover damages from a third party.
