A personal injury lawyer works with clients who have suffered a physical or emotional injury, usually by accident or mistake.

They 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.
