Verified Personal Injury Lawyer™
— The Verified Personal Injury Lawyer™ Seal indicates that the lawyer’s practice consists of at least 90% personal injury law and the lawyer does not have any disciplinary actions listed. This information is checked annually.
Lawyers are not allowed to state that they are a specialist or specialize in personal injury unless certified by a school or organization issuing certifications recognized by the state but a certification does not indicate whether the attorney has any real world experience in the field of personal injury. A lawyer can graduate from law school, get certified and open up a practice without any experience in personal injury.
There are many lawyers with extensive experience in the field of personal injury. Attorneys with substantial personal injury experience do not need to go back to school for six months just to prove they know how to handle a personal injury case. Most of the top trial lawyers in the country are not certified. Johnnie Cochran was a well known personal injury lawyer who didn’t need to be certified.
The Verified Personal Injury Lawyer™ Seal is not a certification but indicates that the lawyer’s practice is limited to 90% or more personal injury and/or workers compensation.
There are many areas included within the field of personal injury. Attorneys may practice in one or more of any of these fields. A few of the fields within personal injury include:
- Car Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Slip, Trip & Fall Accidents
- Construction Accidents
- Nursing Home Abuse
- Defective / Dangerous Products
- Defective / Dangerous Drugs
- Medical Malpractice
- Wrongful Death;
- Workers compensation; and many, many more.
