How Do I Know I Have a Personal Injury Case?

Not every incident gives you the right to file a legal claim. That is why it’s crucial to get a personal injury lawyer’s opinion. We will listen to your story, assess the facts, and explain how the law applies to your situation.

If someone’s negligence or recklessness caused you or a loved one harm, you likely have a personal injury claim.

A typical personal injury case is when a truck or car driver causes a crash because they were distracted, speeding, or impaired. You can hold them or their insurance company liable.

But personal injury/negligence law also applies to other scenarios, like slip and falls, medical malpractice, and wrongful death.

If you think you have a case, contact Donnelly Murphy Lawyers and let our experienced personal injury lawyers review the details.

When Can I File a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

There’s always a deadline for how long you have to file a lawsuit. Usually, the Ontario Limitations Act gives you two years from the date you were hurt, suffered damages, or when you learned about them.

There are exceptions, though, which may give you more or less time. That’s why we recommend getting started by consulting a lawyer right away.

Can I Win Compensation For Personal Injuries?

If you prove another party’s careless or reckless behavior caused you harm, then you may receive compensation for your physical, emotional, and financial injuries, including:

Calculating the value of these injuries can get complicated, though. You have to include what you’ve already paid and what you will in the future. Many other factors may impact the value as well.

We highly recommend working with a personal injury lawyer in Kincardine with experience calculating the precise value of people’s losses.

Will a Personal Injury Lawyer Help Me?

Many injury victims assume they’ll go through the insurance claim process and receive a payout in a few weeks. It rarely works like that. Insurance companies may try to blame you or limit your settlement. A personal injury lawyer helps prevent and address these complications.

Donnelly Murphy Lawyers is deeply committed to serving Kincardine injury victims and has achieved results for over 90 years. We know how to handle your case, whatever happened.

Call us right away. We’ll get started investigating, gathering evidence, and connecting with the appropriate experts. We’ll negotiate a settlement on your behalf, and if necessary, challenge the other side in court.

Ontario Car Accident Insurance Laws

You and every other driver in Ontario have to buy a minimum amount of auto insurance. A basic policy provides third-party liability and compensation regardless of who was at fault. Drives can choose to purchase additional coverage, which will cover losses above the mandatory minimums.

Though you have to contact your insurance company after a crash, don’t assume an insurer has your best interests at heart. Most insurers have a financial interest in reducing or denying a payout. It’s common for large insurers to offer less than the damages are worth. That’s why you’re better off working with an attorney who will fight for the recovery you deserve.
