What is my brain injury case worth?
Contacting the right 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.
Claims Arising from a Motorcycle Accident
There are at least two types of claims that arise in motor vehicle accidents, when you are not at-fault. Initially, the accident benefits claim must be submitted to the insurer as soon as possible given the strict deadlines for making a claim. Some accident benefits included in a claim are medical and rehabilitation benefits, income replacement benefits, attendant care benefits, non-earner benefits, care-giver benefits, home modification benefits, as well as catastrophic benefits and others. If you pay for optional benefits, you may be entitled to further enhanced benefits. In order to ensure you are receiving your maximum entitlement to benefits, you should speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer to discuss your case.
A Tort claim against the driver responsible for the accident is allowed for general damages, special damages, Family Law Act claims and any other loses not compensated for through the accident benefits. There are strict notice periods and legal tests to determine if and when a claim should commence. An experienced personal injury lawyer can assist you in pursuing your claim for damages. Contact our office today and speak to a lawyer who can assess your case. Those individuals who have further insurance coverage through a group benefits plan or other disability insurance, may be entitled to further benefits, such as short-term disability benefits and long-term disability benefits.
Catastrophic injuries, as defined by the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule, are quite severe and usually require case manager services. These complex claims must be handled by a litigation lawyer who has experience dealing with catastrophic injuries. If you have suffered a catastrophic injury, contact our law firm to discuss your next steps.
If the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) Dismissed your Complaint, you can still Seek Compensation for Your Injuries
A complaint to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) is different than a civil claim. The CPSO has the authority to reprimand a physician for their conduct, though they do not have the authority to order compensation be paid to you. Thus, this can only happen if a civil action has been commenced.
