When you have a personal injury claim, you have some choices about how to proceed. Your lawyer will advise you about them, but, ultimately, it is your choice to make. The first choice is settling your personal injury claim out of court with the other party, and the second is taking your claim to court to be decided by a judge or jury.
One moment everything is fine, but the next it isn't. Your child is lying flat on the ground, and his skateboard is slowly rolling away. It's only then that you realize he wasn't wearing a helmet. You rush over to find he isn't unconsciousness, but you saw his head hit the ground hard. Now, what do you do?
With winter coming, it means one thing—lots of unsafe conditions. Between ice, sleet, and snow, winter months in Canada can become challenging as you try to go about your daily life. Instead of feeling sure-footed, you now have to gingerly cross the sidewalk, or you could land hard on the ground.
If a personal injury case goes to court, there's a chance the injured party will receive a larger settlement sum than what was offered in the settlement. The majority of personal injury lawsuits settle out of court, and there's a good reason for that. There are a number of benefits to settling out of court rather than seeing a case through to trial.
Privacy can be a precious, coveted thing. Some people go to great lengths to get it, protect it, and maintain it. That may require them to avoid all social media platforms and limit the amount of personal information they share with solicitors and others. They like their personal life to be exactly that—personal.
You were recently in a motor vehicle accident and suffered a broken wrist. You didn't do anything about it immediately (legal wise) because it wasn't that debilitating of an injury. Fast forward two and a half years, and now you want to take action only to be told you can't. Why is that?
Many people put a high value on privacy. They don't like to share information, and they stay away from social media. They like their personal life to be exactly that—personal. No matter how hard you try to keep your privacy intact, if you are a plaintiff in a personal injury case, your privacy will be no longer.
When you've suffered a personal injury, a personal injury lawyer can be your biggest advocate during your time of need. While recovering, they will help build a strong case in your favour. They will try their best to get you the settlement you deserve.
When you have clients who are having a difficult time,—not only with their injury but with its resulting effects—wanting to help them get back on their feet is normal. Their story and situation can sometimes pull the heartstrings a bit, which can cause lawyers to go above and beyond what is required of them. In these cases, you can provide your client with several resources or point them in the direction to some that would make their difficult time a lot more manageable.
