Using a Personal Injury Lawyer

Getting injured can be an unpleasant, and sometimes scary, experience. It's especially upsetting if your injuries are the result of another person's intentional or negligent actions. If you believe your injuries are someone else's fault, a lawyer can give you information about your legal options. Most personal injury attorneys provide prospective clients with a free initial consultation. Personal injury lawyers also usually work on a contingency basis, meaning that they only get paid if your case results in a judgment in your favor or a settlement agreement. FindLaw's Using a Personal Injury Lawyer section provides articles and resources to help you determine if you need an attorney for a personal injury claim and how to proceed if you do. You can also find sample documents such as an attorney intake questionnaire and attorney agreements.
