What to Do to Win Your Personal Injury Case
At Lawyers BW, we have been making sure that injured Philadelphians get fair settlements since 1995. Our motto, “The client matters!” is what drives us to get the maximum compensation you deserve. And while we are always confident that we can get it, there are few things after the accident to build an airtight, indisputable case.
This is not always possible. After an injury, if you are not completely incapacitated, you are almost definitely in a state of shock. However, if you have the presence of mind to take photos of the scene from several different angles and distances, do so. By photographing from multiple angles and distances, it becomes easier to communicate the unsafe nature of the area.
Report the Accident.
It is far too common for people to shrug off or downplay an accident only for the adrenaline to wear off the next morning and that’s when they realize they are in serious pain and could use an insurance claim for treatment. Wherever you are at the time of the accident, make sure the authorities are alerted. This could even mean reporting it to a manager if you’re in a retail store at the time of the accident. If there is no report of the incident, the insurance company will approach your claim with scrutiny, making it more difficult to get what you deserve.
Get Immediate Medical Attention.
If you are in an accident and you feel injured right away, do not put off seeking medical attention. There are two reasons why seeking medical attention right away can benefit you later. First, if any serious damage has been done, you want to get it worked on as quickly as possible. Second, insurance companies are always very suspicious of people who put off seeing a doctor and will use it against you. The longer you wait to seek out medical attention, the more likely it is they will state your injuries are not as serious as you claim. This is especially important if you are in an accident that is unwitnessed or unreported because it’s a way to document exactly what has happened, adding credibility to your claim.
Don’t Give Statements.
A claims adjuster or a defendant’s risk management representative will reach out to you in hopes of getting your side of the story either in writing or through a recording. Typically, they say they are required to do an investigation or that they can help you if you hand over the details. However, you are not required to give a statement. In fact, it is risky revealing any information because it can be used against you later. Every interaction with the insurance company should be through your lawyer.
The last thing you need to do to make sure you get the maximum compensation for your injury is to have the right legal representation. When you choose Lawyers BW, you are choosing a law firm with experience, determination and accessibility.

Car accidents are traumatic events. Hiring a personal injury lawyer that can be supportive and understanding to represent you at this time, is important in your recovery. At Lawyers BW we do the paperwork and stand up for our clients so that they can focus on healing their bodies and minds.
Are you aware of your rights and what is owed to you in the case of an automotive accident? Many insurance companies rely on a lack of information to ensure you don’t get the most that you deserve. As personal injury lawyers, we will advocate on your behalf with years of experience and knowledge to back us up.
While we can’t take you back in time and stop car accident injuries and emotional distress from occurring, what Lawyers BW can offer for our clients is as close as you’re going to get. By working diligently and aggressively, you’ll be seeing the maximum monetary results that you are legally entitled to, in no time.
Slip and Fall Injuries
Slipping and falling can be embarrassing, or it could result in a trip to the hospital. When your fall is triggered by negligence, you may be entitled to monetary compensation. Factors that can go into this case include:
- Who is responsible for the conditions.
- The length of time they have been negligent.
- If any warning signs were used.
- If nature was part of the cause, e.g., walking at nighttime.
During our years in the industry, our law offices have seen hundreds of slip and fall cases come through our doors, and have been proud to help these clients come to an agreement with home or business owners that were involved in their injury.
As personal injury lawyers, it is our mission to support and represent those who have experienced physical and emotional distress due to another’s failings.
Nursing Home Abuse
When you leave your loved one in the care of nursing home staff, you expect them to treat them with the same level of care and respect that you yourself would. Unfortunately, this isn’t something that happens in every case.
If you find yourself in this difficult situation, Lawyers BW will deal with civil, criminal, and regulatory standards, to either force a change at the nursing facility, take away their funding, or in extreme cases suspend their license or revoke it entirely.
Your loved one may not always be able to express that they are being neglected or abused. By learning to recognize the signs, you can ensure that a case can be opened quickly and the situation can be remedied. When you rent space in a nursing home, pay attention to:
- The conditions of the facility
- The type of meals being served
- The frequency of meals being served
- The quality of emergency care
- The appearance and attitudes of staff
- Visible bruising, lacerations of dehydration
- A sharp gain or loss in weight
- Withdrawn or depressive behavior
There are a lot of options for families who experience abuse or neglect at the hand of nursing home employees and management. Lawyers BW will immediately get in touch with the appropriate agencies and begin drawing up a claim on your behalf.
The ideal outcome of any nursing home persecution is to gain compensation for our clients, and put the right barriers in place so that the same thing cannot happen again.

As you can tell, nursing home abuse doesn’t always appear in the form of a physical injury. But not to worry. At Lawyers BW our personal injury lawyers are skilled in recognizing signs of injury that go well beyond physical. There’s a lot that goes into prepping injury claims, and having a sharp attention to detail is the strongest skill personal injury firms can hold.
