Are there lawyers that represent individual with disabilities in different legal matters?

Involved in a personal injury claim and feel already being disabled has caused discrimination.

While there probably are lawyers who specialize in representing the disabled generally--i.e. in different legal matters--that's not a specialty in the sense of there being many practioners; you may have trouble locating an attorney like that.

What there definitely are, are attorneys who specialize in representing the disabled in employment, housing, and other contexts where they commonly face discrimination. However, since I suspect those attorneys likely do not do personal injury cases--or at least, that's probably not something they are particularly experienced in--they may not be the best choice.

If you feel that your particular attorney is not adequately representing your interests for any reason, then you should look for another lawyer; but the problem may simply be this individual attorney, not a matter of his or her speciality.

The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
