Personal Injury

Legal protection from personal injury is a constitutional right, but it has been marginalized in recent years by frivolous lawsuits. Having served our community for more than a century, Gawthrop Greenwood and its attorneys are highly selective in their representation of personal injury cases, and are unwilling to settle for less than full value. For clients, this results in maximum recovery and a reputation for integrity that benefits clients as soon as the Gawthrop name is attached to their case.

By definition, personal injury law is designed to protect you if you or your property is harmed. In practice, we know that it provides so much more, including short- and long-term medical treatment, therapeutic services, compensation for wage loss or early retirement, and ultimately protection from financial ruin.

Working with you and your family, we take the time to explore the long-term significance of your injury, to ensure there is funding set aside for possible future expenses. With decades of experience in insurance defense, we understand the intricacies of how insurance companies operate, and what will increase the value of your case.
