MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS
Bone fractures, whiplash, chronic pain, psychological trauma; these are the common types of injuries that can be sustained as a result of a car accident, which is one of the most common causes of injuries in Canada. Not all injuries will become apparent immediately following the accident, with certain types of soft tissue injuries taking months to become noticeable. Following the accident, victims and their families are left with undue emotional and financial stress that is caused by lost wages, medical rehabilitation costs, and other expenses. The personal injury lawyers of BLF Law have been helping Canadians and their families obtain much needed relief in these difficult times.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident, you are entitled to certain benefits. The accident benefits that you are entitled to are medical rehabilitation benefits, income replacement benefits, attendant care, and non-earner benefits. Caregiving and housekeeping benefits may be available if you have bought additional coverage on your insurance policy. The most devastating injuries that fall into the catastrophic category can substantially increase your coverage. Even though it seems you are well covered by your insurance company, they will try their best to limit and sometimes even deny your access to the benefits you need and deserve.
You may be eligible to make a Tort claim against the at-fault party if the accident was not entirely your fault. You would then receive compensation for damages such as pain and suffering, future medical care, loss of competitive advantage, loss of income, and out-of-pocket expenses. The legislation that governs the area of law that deals with motor vehicle accidents has been subject to changes that have made the claim process more complex and restrictive for victims of car accidents. The team at BLF Law is well-versed in the applicable legislation and has a proven track record of obtaining the maximum compensation for our clients. The insurance industry announces record profits every year, which means that the insurance business seems to be very profitable. In order to keep the costs down and the profits up, insurance companies have resorted to denying benefits, delaying payments, and defending their positions vehemently. Claims adjusters are tasked with minimizing the payouts, which leaves injury victims without necessary benefits and medical rehabilitation they are entitled to. Tort claims adjusters instead make low-ball offers, which has become a go-to tactic for them.
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, you deserve compensation for your injuries. Even if the other driver had no insurance or even fled the scene, you are still entitled to Tort compensation. If you are at fault for the accident, you still may be entitled. Motor vehicle accident claims have their own inherent complications, and having an experienced legal team on your side is crucial for obtaining the compensation that you deserve. Regardless of who is at fault in the accident, or in situations where the other driver did not have proper insurance, or if you were involved in a hit-and-run, you are still entitled to benefits and compensation.
