Civil Litigation and Personal Injury
How do I know if my case is a civil litigation or personal injury case?
Civil litigation generally involves lawsuits that are brought by one party against another party in order to receive monetary compensation for damages when someone believes that he or she has been injured by the other party. Those injuries include damages caused in many ways which include: motor vehicle accidents, defective products, violation of rights, and various forms of negligence. Civil litigation and personal injury cases can vary and involve a number of different issues, including:
- Personal Injury
- Workers Compensation
- Consumer Protection
- Violation of Civil Rights
- Property Damage
- Medical Malpractice
- Legal Malpractice
The attorneys on our panel who practice personal injury and civil litigation understand that your situation may be emotionally draining and difficult. That’s why our attorneys are dedicated to working to obtain the best resolution possible for you. Through claims processes, mediation, arbitration, and trial work, our attorneys will advocate on your behalf to ensure that you are satisfied with the outcome of your case.
Many people are not able to afford the substantial legal fees that would ensure them a favorable outcome. Many of our attorneys work on a contingent fee for injury cases. This means that an attorney agrees to represent you for a portion of the damages that are collected if and only if your case is successfully won. Clients will sometimes call our Referral Service when their previous attorney dropped their case because he or she was no longer able to pay them up front or when they are unable to qualify for free legal aid.
The attorneys on National Lawyers Guild’s Lawyer Referral Service are dedicated to providing clients with affordable legal services, thus enabling low- and moderate-income individuals to achieve justice through the law. In some cases, our attorneys are even able to offer their clients a payment plan.* Participating in providing these services help our attorneys to reset the imbalance of the justice system.
*The National Lawyers Guild Referral Service makes no guaranteed that an attorney will take your case with a reduced fee, flat fee, sliding scale, contingency, payment plan, or other forms of financial assistance. Many of our attorneys provide low rates and our attorneys cannot offer further rate reductions. When placing referrals, we are only able to screen attorneys based on their location and the area(s) of law they practice. The National Lawyers Guild is dedicated to non-discriminatory practices. Please be advised that requests for other considerations or specific characteristics of an attorney will NOT be taken into account.
