We have two boys, ages 15 and 17, so my 'spare time' is typically spent with sports, fishing, coaching baseball, riding dirt bikes and various trips of interest (and hopefully some educational value) - and of course lots of homework ... Never a dull moment and it certainly helps keep everything else in perspective, as only kids can.

A personal injury lawyer works with clients who have suffered a physical or emotional injury, usually by accident or mistake. They cover cases such as car accidents, botched surgery, and harassment. Personal injury attorneys know how the insurance claim process works, they know what evidence to gather, and they know how to calculate and present a claim for damages. Many personal injury attorneys take cases on a contingency basis, which means they receive an agreed-upon percentage of the payment you receive, also called the personal injury settlement. If you don't recover any money, they don't get paid their fee. Personal injury lawyers also know how to defend you if someone thinks an injury is your fault.
