Become A Personal Injury Lawyer

A personal injury attorney is a legal professional who provides legal representation to individuals who claim to have been hurt, either physically or psychologically, due to the negligence of another individual, company, government department or any other entity. Personal injury attorneys primarily practice in the field of civil law governed by tort law. Tort law governs the actions of officials and employees of a government agency in terms of liability for injuries that take place in their official capacity. For instance, a police officer may be sued for an injury he/she causes in the performance of his duty when that action results in harm or death to another individual. Personal injury lawyers handle claims that arise from such incidents in which individuals claim that they were injured as a result of a public official’s negligence.Do you want to learn more?
