Obtaining Compensation for Injuries

 
If you are injured in an accident, you have the right to make a personal injury claim against the person who caused or contributed to your injury. Claims for compensation can be made for injuries suffered in many situations. The first step is to determine if you have a claim. The best way to do this is to consult with a personal injury claim lawyer as soon as possible after a serious personal injury. There are strict time limits and deadlines that must be met when filing a claim. In Ontario, there can be two parts to a motor vehicle accident:  a claim against an insurance company called Accident Benefits and a claim against drivers called Tort claims.
  • Accident Benefits are available to anyone involved in a motor vehicle accident regardless of who caused the accident. Notify your insurance company as soon as possible about the accident in order to protect your entitlement to Accident Benefits. You may qualify for income replacement benefits, non-earner benefits, medical and rehabilitation benefits, death and funeral expenses, replacement of damaged clothing and eyeglasses, and travel and other expenses.
  • Tort claims are designed to compensate you and your loved ones for pain and suffering, health care and attendant care expenses. There are several conditions about how and when you can make a tort claim.  A personal injury claim lawyer can give you a full explanation of your claim.
If you require the services of a personal injury claim lawyer, you should not have to worry about the cost of litigation. At Sokoloff Lawyers, we know our clients want to concentrate on a healthy recovery, not on paying lawyer fees. We accept our cases on a contingency fee basis, which is a negotiated percentage of your settlement. This means you do not pay us until you get your money.
