It is great to have a lawyer that you have trusted for years when you are dealing with business or family issues that require the assistance of a legal professional. But if you were seriously injured as a result of someone’s negligence, you need the help of a lawyer specializing in personal injury law, also known as tort law. Personal injury firms exist because the tort law dealing with these matters, and especially motor vehicle injury compensation claims, are very specific and complex.
General practitioners often do not have the experience or depth of knowledge necessary to handle personal injury cases. Without the help of a personal injury firm, you will likely be at a disadvantage should your claim be disputed by the insurance company.
When it comes to personal injury cases, insurance companies have full time lawyers who are well-versed in this particular area of the law. Personal injury firms are aware of this and therefore use experts as well. You need to have a lawyer that is just as competent as your insurance company’s lawyer!
At Clarke Law, our firm is comprised of experts in both the accident benefits and tort areas of personal injury law, and who are able to give your case the time and professionalism that it deserves.
Experience in Personal Injury Cases
If you’ve suffered from a serious injury as a result of an accident, it can be a life altering event. Not only do you have physical pain and a potentially lengthy recovery process to deal with, you can also have financial hardship resulting from missed work, medical expenses, or additional care.
Since the financial security of you and your family could be riding on how good your personal injury lawyer is, doesn’t it make sense to select a firm that has extensive experience in this area?
A Wealth of Knowledge
Along with experience, comes knowledge. Personal injury lawyers are almost always more knowledgeable in this area than general practitioners. When you are injured, it is important to get as much help and compensation as the law will permit.
While an insurance company may be one source of this compensation, it is often not the only one. A qualified personal injury lawyer will be able to help you identify ALL the possible sources of compensation in order to ensure that you get the help you need to recover.
Working with injured clients often comes with a unique set of considerations. Often our clients are already experiencing financial hardship as a result of their injuries. Often it is too difficult for our clients to come into our office due to pain or mobility issues.
Because of these unique situations personal injury firms in Toronto often offer considerations not offered by all general practitioners. For example, payment is often not required until compensation is recovered. Furthermore, personal injury lawyers will often arrange in hospital or in home consultations.
If you’ve been hurt in an accident, you need a specialist on your side.
