Many of our clients are completely incapacitated for weeks or even months after an accident, so there’s no way they themselves can call us at The Segal Law Firm. And you know from reading previous posts that my recommendation is to call an experienced law firm right away. That’s why we make it easy on the families by allowing any friend or loved one of the victims to call on his or her behalf.
Sometimes people in really serious accidents are in a coma and simply cannot communicate at all with us. But the family knows what happened to them and can get us involved sooner than later. We can answer their questions, explain to them what legal rights the person has, and, in many instances, the wife or husband can hire us to begin the legal proceedings and investigation immediately. We’ve got to make sure that evidence doesn’t disappear, as that tends to happen in accident cases.
When the accident victim does recover, they’ll be able to see what we’ve done and hire us to continue on with their case. If the injury leads to death, we can then explain to the family who can go to the courthouse to be appointed as the administrator or executor of the love one’s estate. At that point, it becomes a wrongful death case.
I hate to see widows and spouses sitting at the hospital worrying and wringing their hands because they don’t know what to do. I’ll come down to the hospital to meet you, if that makes things easier. I know a lot of doctors and nurses in West Virginia because I’ve been doing this for over thirty years. The call is free, the advice is free, and it’s going to give everyone involved a lot of peace of mind knowing that a law firm like The Segal Law Firm is protecting their family member.
