There are many types of accidents that can result in compensation. If your accident is someone else’s fault, you would be advised to hire an accident lawyer, such as the ones at Clarke Law. Once you’ve consulted with your lawyer, you will be able to determine if someone was at fault and should be held responsible for your injuries resulting from the accident.
What types of accident cases does Clarke Law handle?
Clarke Law handles a variety of kinds of accidents on behalf of their clients. These types include car accidents, spinal cord injuries, head and brain injuries, orthopaedic injuries, birth injuries, neurological injuries, chronic pain syndrome, and psychological injuries. Many of these injuries are the results of car accidents, slip and fall accidents, and other such incidents. In all of these cases, injuries will manifest physically, and will include medical bills.
The firm also handles wrongful death cases, disability claims, dental malpractice, family survivors, statutory accident benefits, occupiers liability, product liability, and superior court tort claims. If you’ve been in an accident, you should contact Clarke Law and let them see how they can help you.
Are all accidents treated the same?
Every accident is a unique experience and no two are treated identically. Not only will one type of accident receive different damage awards than another, each specific incident will receive different awards, based on the specifics of the accident. No two cases are exactly alike, although they will be largely based on similar precedents.
What benefits will I be entitled to because of my accident?
You may be entitled to insurance benefits, regardless of who is at fault. If your accident prevents you from returning to work, you may be eligible for income replacement. If you do not have a job, are a student, or are the primary caregiver in your home, there are benefits for you, as well. If you require health and medical services that are not covered under OHIP, you may be able to receive coverage over a certain period of time. These services may include chiropractic care, at-home care from a nurse, physiotherapy, prescription medications, and psychological therapy. If you require assistive devices, such as a wheelchair, or an aide, such as a seeing-eye dog, that may be covered as well. If your family has had to support you and that has cost them money, or if you’ve required someone else to maintain your home, there can be compensation for that, too. Of course, there are maximums and limitations on each of these benefits, which your accident lawyer will make you aware of.
I’m not sure if my accident qualifies. What should I do?
If you are not sure if your specific accident will be compensated, contact an accident lawyer anyway. The lawyers at Clarke Law would be happy to meet with you, at no charge, to help you determine if you have a case for either civil litigation, or an insurance claim. They handled multitudes of these cases, will be able to let you know if your accident and injuries warrant action. Let the experts guide you during this difficult and confusing time.
