- What is Personal Injury Law?
January 31, 2023
You’ve seen the commercials, the bus ads, and the social media posts. Maybe you’ve even had a friend who needed to turn to a personal injury attorney for help with a situation in the past. But what is personal injury law, exactly, and when should you consider hiring a personal injury lawyer to help you?
Simply put, personal injury law involves cases where someone has been physically or psychologically hurt by another person, an organization, or another party. Personal injury is typically defined as an injury to someone’s mind, body, or emotions.
Generally, personal injury law is about compensating victims of personal injury and punishing offenders in the form of monetary awards, known as compensatory and punitive damages. In this area of the law, the attorney’s goal is to ensure their client gets compensation for their lost wages, pain and suffering, and medical expenses.
Personal injury law covers cases in which a person is hurt or injured as a result of someone else’s negligence and is a form of civil law. Often, these cases are settled before ever going to trial, but that’s not always the case.
Because personal injury law can cover so many different types of cases, they are some of the most common civil lawsuits. Personal injury lawsuits can include everything from car accidents to medical malpractice, wrongful death, product liability, defective drugs, brain injury, catastrophic injury, birth injury, nursing home abuse, and more.
If you’re unsure whether you could benefit from the services of a personal injury law firm, it might not be a bad idea to contact one that offers a free consultation to review your situation. It is very important to discuss your case with attorneys as soon as possible after an incident occurs to avoid issues like missing a statute of limitations deadline, which could cause a lawsuit to be dismissed.
Whether or not you have a personal injury case depends on your situation. A good personal injury lawyer can advise you on whether or not you have an eligible case, and picking the best lawyer possible for your circumstances is key.
At Phillips Law Group, we of course hope that if you ever find yourself in need of an attorney, you would turn to us. But in order to determine whether you have a case, and whether we are the best team possible to tackle it, your best bet is to contact us for a free consultation to learn more. Your case evaluation is free and we don’t collect a fee unless we win your case.
Personal injury law can be confusing, and you shouldn’t have to face your legal issue alone, especially if it involves harm to you or a loved one. Give us a call today to see how Phillips Law Group can help.

Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
Working at Phillips Law Group has been a blessing from the beginning for me and I am extremely thankful to work for a firm that values their employees so much. Here I believe we are a huge family of hard working people that can bring a sense of comfort to our client’s lives in times of hardships, stress and chaos. From intake to Settlement we strive to provide the best customer care to all of our wonderful clients. With a 4.8 rating and over 1100+ star reviews on Google no surprise our firm is extremely well known for the quality of work we do!! #teamPLG!!
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
I enjoy my work day here at Phillips Law Group and generally speaking I love my clients. Every day brings a new client or task to keep me on my toes. Administration keeps open communication and is hilarious most of the time! I love the way we celebrate FRIDAY, holidays and birthdays and how everything is so competitive. All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
