What is Personal Injury?
The name personal injury is nearly a cliché. An injury to your body is really what personal injury means. It is likely derived from old English common law to injure oneself. In modern times, simply calling it bodily injury would suffice. Personal injury is that classification of tort law specifically dealing with negligence, products liability, and other segments of tort law. It is important to hire a law firm or lawyer that exclusively practices in personal injury. Why? Personal injury is a specialty. Lawyers that practice family law understand the case law, statutes, and issues prevalent in that area of law. Similarly, Personal Attorneys understand the law and issues that are unique to injury law. Anyone who hires a law firm that is not a specialist in injury law is getting a jack-of-all-trades-attorney: someone that may understand basic fundamentals of that practice, but does not solely practice personal injury.
With serious cases involving multiple expert witnesses and litigation strategy, it is extremely important to hire a personal injury law firm that specializes in accident and injury law. Some firms attempt to do criminal law and personal injury or family law and personal injury or other hybrids or combinations of practice. Stick with the firms that specialize. You wouldn’t go to an orthopedic surgeon for your brain tumor would you? No. For the same reasons, you need to choose an attorney carefully.
Experience. Experience is key in hiring a professional. Benson & Bingham are personal injury attorneys that only practice personal injury law and have a combined 18 years of experience in personal injury law.
