There are many areas included within personal injury besides accidents, including Nursing Home Abuse; Defective/Dangerous Products; Medical Malpractice; Wrongful Death; Motorcycle Accidents; and many more.
Look for one of the gold badges on a lawyer's website which verifies that the lawyer is entitled to the privileged lifetime membership in the exclusive Million Dollar Trial Lawyers Association™.
While no award or rating should be the sole reason to retain a lawyer, the Million Dollar Trial Lawyers™ awards can be one of the factors you take into consideration when choosing an attorney. All of the the Million Dollar Trial Lawyers™ awards represent a significant achievement which any attorney can be proud of.
