Personal Injury

Personal injury lawyers are a type of lawyer that are in high demand all over the United States. Personal injury is a legal term used to describe when a person becomes injured or ill because of another person or party’s negligence, malice or reckless behavior. There are many, many different kinds of specialty areas of personal injury law. When a victim of a personal injury files a claim against the person or people that caused their injury, they typically seek compensation for expenses related to their injury such as medical costs and loss of wages, including those that may arise in the future, as well as for their pain and suffering. When someone dies because of a personal injury, their surviving family members may be entitled to compensation.

Within most specialty areas of personal injury law, there are more than a few subspecialty areas. The following are some of the more common types of personal injury lawyers that are in high demand. 

Auto Accidents

One of the most common types of personal injury lawyers that are in demand are ones that deal with injuries from auto accidents. Many lawyers that specialize in auto accidents specialize in things such as particular kinds of accidents such as a rear-end, t-bone or DUI accidents.

Assault, Battery and Other Intentional Torts

Unlike most personal injury claims, this kind of claim does not use negligence or recklessness as a cause. These claims occur when a person harms or injures another with the intent to do this.


When someone suffers from defamation of their character by libel or slander, this is considered a personal injury in the sense that their reputation has been injured. 

Faulty and Dangerous Products or Services

When a product or service that has been made available to consumers injures a person, one or more party may be liable for damages because they contributed to making the product available to the public.

Medical Malpractice

When a medical professional or facility fails to provide competent and reasonably skilled care to a patient, they may be liable in the event that their patient becomes injured or ill as a result of their negligence. 

These are just a few of the many different specialty areas for types of personal injury lawyers that are in high demand.
