Chandler Personal Injury Lawyers
The term "personal injury attorney" sometimes comes into every day conversations. But what does it mean? Most people do not understand much of what an accident attorney actually does. This is partly due to the fact that injury lawyers do many things to help their clients. The origin of the "personal injury" aspect of law most likely is simply because it refers to a person who is physically injured. It is also a person, in the form of a personal injury lawyer, who helps an injured party to receive compensation for his or her injuries when they result from another person's negligence. Yet people are injured in all manner of different ways.
An attorney helps people who have been injured in car accidents. A lawyer may also help people who have been injured due to a dog bite, train accident, slip-and-fall, or any other type of situation in which someone is injured in whole or in part due to another person's carelessness.
What is an attorney and what can he or she do for you?
Yet even the best attorney cannot help in every case. A common misconception of personal injury law is that anybody who was hurt has a right to receive compensation. Though someone who has been injured may have a legal right to pursue compensation for his or her injury, the reality is that under Arizona law only those whose injuries have been caused by someone else has the right to compensation. In addition to this, it must be determined that the injury was caused by either an intentional act or negligence on the part of the person who caused the injury.
