Spanish-Language Representation in the Area of Personal Injury Law

Explanation. Personal injury lawyers – especially those related to car or automobile accidents – can have a complicated reputation among the general public. Personal injury lawyers are often the first line of defense for persons who lack the financial resources to go up against big corporate or institutional interests. In your essay, explain how you see personal injury attorneys fighting for rights, and whether we as a society benefit (or do not) from the adversarial legal system. Many residents of South Texas are not native speakers of English. Explain the complexities of serving the Spanish-language community within the legal system.
