Investigation And Action For Victims Of On-The-Job Accidents

Many people in Gwinnett County and across Georgia face daily injury risks working in hazardous occupations on construction sites and farms, auto plants, other factories and food processing facilities. Others have no cause to anticipate being seriously hurt at work, but the reality is that serious accidents can occur in any workplace.

Report Injuries And Get Prompt Medical Attention To Preserve Your Claims

What should you do after suffering a work-related accident? The critical early steps are to notify your employer and get prompt medical attention. These actions can help protect your rights to workers' compensation benefits. If you know your injuries are serious or think that they might be, you should also get in touch with an accomplished lawyer with experience in both workers' comp and personal injury litigation.

Turn To Our Legal Team For Analysis And Protection Of Your Rights

At the Law Office of Derek M. Hays in Lawrenceville, we will treat you with compassion and assess every path to a financial recovery. Mr. Hays has many years of experience representing injured workers and families grieving after fatal accidents on the job.

One of our firm's key strengths is Mr. Hays' ability — working with experts in other fields as needed — to determine when legal action against someone other than your employer is justified. In the legal community, this is commonly called a third-party liability claim. In some cases, skillful pursuit of such a claim can yield far greater financial assistance than a workers' compensation claim alone.

We are prepared to thoroughly evaluate and explain your legal options after any serious work-related accident, including:

  • A fall from heights, explosion or other traumatic event on a construction site
  • A car accident or another motor vehicle accident that occurred while you were driving for work
  • An equipment failure or malfunction in any industrial or office setting
