Recovering fair compensation for accident injuries is the focus of accident lawyers and accident lawsuits. Think "accident lawyers" and some people will visualize ambulance chasers and long, dramatic speeches to a jury. In reality, accident lawyers are much less active, quietly hammering out great settlements and awards for their clients during the course of an accident lawsuit. With vehicle accidents, injured parties tend to seek legal assistance right away. In other accident cases, however, there is less knowledge that accident lawyers can indeed offer help.
These attorneys handle far more than just motor accidents. There is a whole range of accidents that land on the desk of a personal injury accident lawyer. Accident lawsuits can be generated even for those who hurt themselves during leisure play. Malpractice, birth injuries, slip and fall injuries, motorcycle accidents, dog bites, slander, libel and deliberate attack all can be handled by the accident lawyers.
Sports injuries, diseases caused by toxic mold or asbestos, mesothelioma, nursing home abuse and workers' compensation accident lawsuits are also destined to be headed to litigation by an accident attorney. Some newer cases that have seen publicity lately include products defect liability lawsuits, drug and medical appliance lawsuits and food poisoning lawsuits. Wrongful death, assault or deliberate attack incidents are also considered to be in the arena of accident lawyers.
