A personal injury lawyer assists and represents people who have been injured. These injuries may be physical or psychological, and may merit compensation via legal recourse.
These lawyers are trial lawyers, though personal injury cases often settle out of court rather than going to trial. Nonetheless, your personal injury lawyer will be prepared to represent you in trial if that is deemed necessary.
To enter this field, an attorney-in-training must study historical cases and current legal frameworks to understand precedent and procedure. The laws surrounding personal injury are ever-evolving. Therefore, continuing to be vigilant and informed, and keeping up to date on legal changes, are parts of the job description.
Personal Injury Attorneys In Ohio
In Ohio, a personal injury lawyer must pass a written bar examination – it is a three day test which involves Ohio Law scenario based essay questions, 200 multiple choice questions known as the Multistate Bar Examination (MBE). In addition, all prospective attorneys are tested under the Multistate Performance Test (MPT). Ohio also requires candidates to successfully pass a Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination (MPRE) in order to be admitted into the Bar.
Every personal injury lawyer must adhere to a rigorous set of ethical regulations. The American Bar Association (ABA) is a professional association that helps enforce these ethical standards, and all of the lawyers at CTBC are members of this association. We owe every client our loyalty and confidentiality, and are sworn to protect our clients’ best interests. These ethical guidelines help ensure that working in tort law helps promote and maintain an effective and fair justice system.
