The reason for this is simple: Most people are unaware of the rights, the timelines, the benefits to which they are entitled, and the potential resources available to persons who were injured at work or through the actions of others. Those responsible for compensating you for your injuries have a vested interest in getting you to sign away your rights as quickly as possible before you even know what those rights are, leaving resources on the table you never knew existed and foregoing rights you never knew you had. If you have been injured at work, in a car accident, on another’s property, by a defective product, or in any other manner by the actions or inaction of another person or company, I will explain your rights to you and fight to ensure that your rights, resources, and current and future finances are protected. Another reason you need a lawyer: Chances are they already have one. Don’t go into this outgunned from the start.
