Car Accident Injuries
Toronto is a city that is famous
for world class cuisine and multiculturalism. Unfortunately it is also known
for traffic problems and bad drivers. Every day in Toronto, numerous people are
injured as a result of car and other motor vehicle related accidents. If you
have been injured in a car accident, regardless of whether you caused the accident
or not, you may be able to file a car
accident injury claim
. A personal injury lawyer will be extensively
familiar with motor vehicle law and be able to let you know your rights.
Time is an important factor when it comes to successfully
establishing a claim with the insurance company; there are deadlines in place
that limit the timeframe when a claim can be successfully opened insurer. If
the car accident occurs as the result of another driver's negligence, these
deadlines also limit the amount of time a victim can pursue legal action. A
personal injury lawyer will be aware of these time constraints and be able to
help you successfully file a claim on time.
Most people do not understand
how the motor vehicle law works in Ontario. A personal injury lawyer's success
is based on knowing everything about these laws and providing vital information
to clients. For instance, Ontario is a "no fault” jurisdiction. This means that
your own insurance company should automatically pay for any necessary
treatments, a portion of lost wages as well as other benefits (such as
housecleaning costs, etc.). Your own insurance company covers these benefits
even if you are at fault for the accident.
Even if you are in an accident
with no insurance, there may be compensation available from other sources. A personal injury lawyer
understands the different types of compensation available to help the victims
of motor vehicles (such as the fund created by the Insurance Act of Ontario for
uninsured drivers). A personal injury law firm will have lawyers on staff with
extensive experience of provincial motorist laws and a proven history of
successfully achieving compensation for clients.
A personal injury lawyer will also be able to help
bicyclists and pedestrians pursue legal action against negligent drivers who
cause accidents and injuries.
Personal injury law is
inherently different from other types of law. The victims of an accident are
frequently dealing with injuries as well as emotional stress. There may also be
the burden of dealing with financial issues as a result of expensive medical
treatments and lost wages.
The top personal injury law firms
have a team of lawyers who are not only experts in their specific field, but
also possess the personal skills and compassion necessary to help clients feel
comfortable in a time of stress. Successful cases are built on getting to know
clients and the unique circumstances surrounding the accident.
Regardless of how you have been injured in a motor vehicle
accident, contact an acclaimed personal injury law firm to determine if you
have a right to a car accident injury claim in Toronto.
