WHAT TYPE OF ATTORNEY DO I NEED?

Not sure if you should call a personal injury lawyer, an accident lawyer, a negligence lawyer, a tort lawyer, a civil litigation lawyer, a trial lawyer or some other type of lawyer?  These terms are similar, but there are some differences between these types of lawyers that you should be aware of.  A lawyer that represents clients for injuries they have sustained, that are somebody else’s fault.  This is a broad term because it includes physical and psychological injuries, and the case can be based on an accident or on an intentional act such as defamation.  Some personal injury attorneys only handle basic cases such as car accidents and slip and falls, but other handle a wider range of cases including medical malpractice, product liability, nursing home neglect, construction accidents and civil rights cases.

Accident Lawyer

A lawyer that represents clients which have been involved in an accident.  An accident lawyer usually represents people that have been involved in traffic accidents, slips and falls, accidents on escalators and elevators and other types of accidents.  An accident lawyer can help you with a claim for injuries or property damage.  An accident lawyer usually does not handle other types of personal injury cases such as defamation or civil rights.

Negligence Lawyer

A lawyer that represents clients that have been harmed by the careless or reckless actions of another person or entity.  This is very similar to an accident lawyer because they handle cases based on accidental actions.  Basically, it’s the same thing as an accident lawyer.

Tort Lawyer

A tort is a lawsuit based on negligence.  So a tort lawyer is essentially the same things as an accident lawyer or a negligence lawyer.

Civil Litigation Lawyer

A civil litigation lawyer handles a broader range of cases than a personal injury lawyer.  Essentially, any type of case that is not criminal, is civil.  A civil litigation lawyer may handle lawsuits might handle personal injury or accident cases, but also commercial cases, contesting a will, contract violations or matrimonial litigation.  It’s rare that an attorney handles such a wide range of cases, there is usually a specialty.

Trial Lawyer

A trial lawyer is an attorney specializes in handling cases once they cannot be settled and must be set down for a trial.  All attorneys can handle trials, but this specialty implies that the attorney takes on cases only when they are close to trial, and does not get involved with building cases from the onset.
