With billboards, television commercials, and radio ads in abundance, most people have heard of the term “personal injury attorney” or “personal injury lawyer”.  But, you may not have a clear idea of what a personal injury attorney is and what one can do for you in your time of need.  Nance Cacciatore would like to clarify it for you, so if you are ever in need, you know you can call us for your personal injury representation needs.

What Is a Personal Injury Attorney?

According to, “A personal injury lawyer is a type of civil litigator who provides legal representation to plaintiffs who are alleging physical or psychological injury as the result of the negligent or careless acts of another person, entity, or organization.”

That may seem a bit wordy, so let’s simplify it.  A personal injury attorney represents people who have been physically or psychologically injured by someone else, either an individual or a company.

What Do They Do?

Personal injury attorneys help their clients receive compensation for their losses.  This can include but is not limited to loss of earning capacity due to inability to work, pain and suffering, reasonable medical expenses, and legal fees.

In some ways, they are a detective, piecing together what happened, who is responsible, and what compensation is reasonable to request.  If necessary, professional investigators will be hired to help with the case.

What Kind of Cases Do They Handle?

You may be wondering if your situation requires a personal injury attorney.  They handle a wide variety of cases.  For example, car accidents, boat accidents, water sport accidents, motorcycle accidents, and semi-truck accidents are all matters handled by personal injury attorneys.  Additionally, they handle cases such as construction site accidents, back and neck injuries, nursing home abuse and/or neglect, dog bites, surgical errors, and MUCH more.

Nance Cacciatore is also handling class action lawsuits regarding Zantac and talcum powder as cancer-causing agents.  A class-action lawsuit involves a large group of people and the defendant is usually a large company.
