What Does An Ontario Personal Injury Lawyer Do?
When you file a claim, you must prove the other party was negligent and that their negligence caused the accident and your subsequent injuries and other damages. The process of handling a complex claim alone can be overwhelming, especially if you have no experience with personal injury law or have never negotiated with an insurance company before. This is where a personal injury attorney can help.
At Lem Garcia Law, our personal injury attorneys can help by:
Investigating the Accident
Our personal injury lawyers will visit the scene of the accident to gather valuable evidence that can strengthen your claim. We will also take photos of the accident scene, including anything that may have contributed to the crash, such as poor road conditions.
Our personal injury attorneys will gather evidence that can strengthen your claim and prove negligence.
Evidence can include:
- Accident report
- Photos of your injuries and vehicle damage
- Video surveillance footage
- Phone records
- Employment records
- Medical records
- Medical bills
- Witness statements
- Statements from your treating physicians
We will work with experts, such as accident reconstructionists, to determine what caused the accident and which party was negligent.
Negotiating With the Insurance Company
We will handle all communication with the insurance company to protect your rights and your claim. Doing so will prevent the insurance company from contacting you directly.
Insurance companies often try to contact the injured party to record their statement, while asking misleading, confusing questions that can cause the accident victim to admit fault or state that their injuries are not as severe as they claim they are. Insurance adjusters may also offer a low settlement, hoping the fast cash will be enough to make the injured party go away. We will accurately value your claim and negotiate with the insurance company until they offer the fair settlement you deserve.
What Kind of Compensation is Available After a Personal Injury Accident?
If you sustained an injury caused by the negligent or careless actions of another, there may be various types of damages available for your claim. At Lem Garcia Law, our personal injury attorneys can help you recover the following types of compensation:
- Pain and suffering
- Past and future medical bills
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Emotional anguish
- Loss of earning capacity
- Loss of quality of life
How Do Attorneys Calculate How Much My Injury Is Worth?
The answer to this question is not always straightforward. Every accident is different. The value of a claim is calculated based on the type of accident and the injuries you sustained.
Your attorney will consider:
- The severity of your injuries
- Your age
- How much time you missed at work
- How long it will take before you’re able to return to work and whether you can return to work at all
- The extent of property damage
An insurance company will view a claim differently. They often do not take personal circumstances into account and instead offer a settlement amount that reflects other similar cases.
A personal injury attorney not only calculates the damages associated with medical treatment but also considers how your injuries will impact your life and affect your future. They will also factor in the pain and suffering you have endured.
The more serious your injuries, the higher the compensation your attorney can claim for you from the other party’s insurance provider. Even if the injuries were minor, a lawyer can help you recover a much higher settlement than what is initially offered by the claims adjuster.
How Long Will It Take to Resolve My Ontario Personal Injury Case?
When you work with the experienced legal team at Lem Garcia Law, you can rest assured that we will stay on top of the insurance company and prevent them from using delay tactics. We know how important it is to recover compensation as soon as possible after an accident, especially if you have no money coming in. In some cases, a settlement can be reached within a matter of weeks.
Complicated cases that involve life-changing injuries, can take longer to settle. Our personal injury attorneys will work tirelessly to help settle your case as soon as possible. We will keep you informed of the progress of your case, bring any offers made by the insurance company to you and advise you on whether you should accept the offer or make a counteroffer. Our goal is to ensure you receive every penny of compensation you’re owed for the pain and suffering you have endured.
What is the Statute of Limitations in California?
In California, accident victims will have two years from the date of the incident to file a lawsuit. If you miss this important deadline, your case may be dismissed and you will not be able to pursue compensation for your accident-related damages. Two years may seem like a long time, but a successful lawsuit takes time to investigate and build. That’s where the personal injury lawyers at Lem Garcia Law come in.
When you work with a personal injury attorney at Lem Garcia Law, our legal team will handle every aspect of your case, including filing the lawsuit correctly and on time.
