If I, or a family member, suffer an injury from an accident, how can we tell if we have a legal case?

Personal injury and Workers’ Compensation laws can be quite complex.

An analysis of the facts and the applicable laws must be made to determine whether an individual has a viable case. That analysis should be made by a lawyer that has extensive experience handling all types of personal injury and Workers’ Compensation matters. At GWC we have over 30 such lawyers available to review the facts of your case, and to make the determination if a viable case exists.

At the time of the accident, what should I do to protect my legal rights?

Since your health is critical, the most important thing that you should do is seek immediate medical assistance from a competent medical doctor or local hospital.

Of course, make sure that you give an accurate history of your injuries being related to your accident, or on the job incident. Secondly, you should consult with a lawyer that is experienced in handling personal injury and Workers’ Compensation matters so that you can receive legal advise concerning the proper steps that should be taken to protect your legal rights.

As an injured party, should I cooperate with corporate representatives or investigators that contact me concerning the incident?

Insurance company adjusters, corporate representatives and investigators hired by either one of these entities typically contact people after an accident or on-the-job injury.

These are, of course, most often the same companies against whom your claim for injuries will be made. These representatives and investigators are often relentless is trying to persuade injured people, their families, and co-workers, to cooperate with the company’s investigations. We cannot emphasize strongly enough the importance of having YOUR own team of lawyers to conduct the investigation of the facts concerning your injury, rather than the company’s or insurance carrier’s. If you are contacted by one of these individuals following an accident or injury, refer them to GWC so that your lawyer can take charge of the investigation, and NEVER give a recorded statement without first consulting with your own attorney.
