A: a car accident lawyer, referred to as a Personal Injury Attorney.

call one local, though.

if there is an injury, and you were not at fault, most of us would accept the case on a contingency fee. That means the lawyer will only take a percentage of what he/she gets.

absent a good injury, a lawyer would probably want to handle it on an hourly.
