Tort Lawyers Can Use The 'Net

To Research Products, Injuries, More

By Robert J. Ambrogi

Personal-injury lawyers are limited only by their imaginations in how they use the Internet. Through its vast resources, they can research a defective product, read up on a client's injury, or locate an expert witness.

What follows is a sampling of some of the best resources for personal injury lawyers on the Internet.


The Consumer Law Page offers an encyclopedic collection of articles and brochures of interest to PI lawyers and consumers. Topics include: automobiles, insurance, products liability, toxic torts, and traumatic brain injuries.

From this site you can follow a link to The Personal Injury Law Page, with its own collection of articles, brochures and resources (although many are the same). Or you can jump to the National Consumer Complaint Center, whose purpose is described as offering "a method of promptly communicating consumer complaints to agencies that are interested in investigating and taking action."
