Motor vehicle accident injury lawyers
Contacting the right car accident injury lawyers is important because an experienced motor vehicle accident lawyer will be able to get you the compensation that you deserve. Dealing with your loss of income due to time taken off work and potentially dealing with the stress of any long-term disabilities which may affect you post accident, is difficult enough. It is important that you outline all of your symptoms to your medical physician, such as physical and psychological symptoms that may be affecting you. Sometimes a critical injury from a motor vehicle accident may not be apparent immediately after the accident, and oftentimes a person will experience injuries such as brain injuries days or weeks following the car accident. Multiple medical appointments may be necessary in order to outline to your doctor all of your symptoms wholly. Our car accident injury lawyers will help fill out your accident benefit claims, and deal with other factors with the insurance company that come with a car accident injury claim. We can assist with Medical Rehabilitation Benefits forms; Caregiver Benefits forms; Out-of-pocket expense forms; employer confirmation forms, and catastrophic impairment forms.
At Scardicchio Law Office Professional Corporation, our car accident injury lawyers will evaluate every aspect of your injury claim and work hard to recover the most compensation that you case is worth.
Some Long-term Impairments that are caused by a car accident can include:
- Bulging or Herniated Discs, Fractured Vertebrae.
- Broken Bones, Displaced Bone Fragments, Amputations.
- Lumbar or Lower Spine Damage.
- Paraplegia or Quadriplegia.
- Psychological Injury.
Compensation in a Car Accident Case
Am I entitled to receive an Accident Benefits settlement?
In your car insurance policy, the Accident Benefits section provides compensation if you, one of your passengers, or a pedestrian is injured in a car accident, regardless of who was at fault.
Accident Benefits are accessible through your own insurance company for any motor vehicle accident that you may be involved in. Accident Benefits may include access to income replacement benefits; non-earner benefit; medical and rehabilitation benefits; attendant care benefits; catastrophic impairment benefits; housekeeping benefits; funeral and death expenses, among other potential benefits to assist you immediately following an accident.
In Ontario, for example, Accident Benefits also include:
- Compensation for an alternative caregiver if you can no longer act as the main caregiver for your dependents
- Compensation for other expenses, like home maintenance, replacement of items damaged in the collision, and lost educational expenses
- Compensation if you’re completely unable to carry on a normal life and you don’t qualify for income replacement or the caregiver benefit.
Liability in a Motor vehicle Accident Claim
Liability is an issue that arises in car accident injury claims. Liability is concerned with whether the other driver was negligent or reckless and is ultimately responsible for causing the motor vehicle accident. It is important to gather all the information of any witnesses at the scene as well as details of the other driver’s license plate, driver’s license, name and address. Taking a photograph of the scene of the accident, your vehicle, your injuries, etc. is advisable to assist in getting a well-rounded perspective of the damage and injury that was caused.
It is important that any victims in a car accident get the help they need by contacting our experienced car accident injury lawyers at Scardicchio Law Office Professional Corporation. We have the resources to see your case to completion.
