How Do I Know if My Case is Serious Enough to Need a Lawyer?
Even if you are not in any pain immediately after an accident, this does not necessarily mean you are injury free. Because dangerous situations cause adrenaline to course through the body, an accident victim may not even notice the extent of their injuries right away. Other injuries, like some brain injuries, may not manifest their symptoms until days or even weeks after the accident itself. Even if you do not feel immediate pain, it is important to consult a doctor first, then consider your personal injury claim. Too often has our law firm seen victims of injury whose conditions get worse due to a delay in medical care.
No accident is too insignificant to consider for a case because any injury can be a debilitating event to the person who is injured. That’s why our firm is prepared to fight for any case, big or small – even if you are competing with a hospital capable of hiring extensive legal support. If you have been injured, contact a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer for support in your personal injury case.
However, not every claim requires a lawyer. To actually add value to your claim, a lawyer must be able to increase your total take-home amount after all fees are paid to greater than you would have settled for independently. So, as an example, if you could have taken home $5,000 on your own, without legal representation, then a lawyer should be able to make sure you take home greater than that – even after all of your legal fees have been taken care of.
A good personal injury lawyer will make potential clients aware of this and be honest if they do not think legal services will actually add any value. If you are not sure if you require the representation provided by a lawyer for your personal injury case, call our office for a free consultation.
How Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Assist Me With a Car Accident Injury Claim?
No one ever anticipates getting into a motor vehicle accident. The aftermath is often overwhelming, and the insurance companies involved will do everything they can to pay out as little as possible. When you’re taking care of your injuries and focusing on your recovery, you shouldn’t be worried about getting a fair settlement, legal fees, extensive medical bills, or anything besides getting healthy again. Car accident injuries in Nova Scotia give rise to several different insurance claims. When a driver is at-fault for other people’s injuries, those injured people claim compensation from the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
NOVA Injury Law helps people access fair compensation from those insurance companies. We build winning claims from day one on clear evidence and medical facts. Car accident injury victims are entitled to claim compensation for lost future earning capacity, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and more. Injury claims are all about returning the injured party to where they would have been if the accident had never happened, nothing more – nothing less.
NOVA Injury Law provides Nova Scotians with down-to-earth legal advice. Anyone with questions about a car accident injury claim should call us right away. There’s no cost and no obligation.
What Can NOVA Injury Law do to Assist Me With a Slip and Fall Accident?
The law requires that property owners maintain a safe property for visitors. Despite the clear standard to which property owners are supposed to be held, safety isn’t always guaranteed everywhere we go. In fact, property owners are often found to have deficiencies in their premises that are unsafe, and these may lead to injury for workers or visitors.
Many accidents, including slip & fall cases, usually arise because the owner of a property didn’t realize the danger or because systems were not put into place to fix a potentially dangerous situation. While the property owner may not have intended for someone to get hurt, an injury claim can be pursued so long as the owner acted negligently. The question to be asked is whether or not the premises were reasonably safe for a visitor.
If you have been injured because of unsafe premises, you should contact our team to discuss the details of your case. We look forward to explaining more about Occupiers Liability law and reviewing the insurance coverage in place at the home or business through which your claim will be pursued.
How Can NOVA Injury Law Help Me With a Medical Malpractice Case?
People place a great deal of trust in healthcare providers and don’t seek medical care expecting something to go wrong. Unfortunately, there can be a variety of errors or types of negligence that occur throughout the healthcare system, including surgical errors, misdiagnoses, treatment, and testing errors, among a variety of others – even when people are trying their best.
Mistakes made by health professionals can result in some of the most severe injuries or illnesses possible. In the worst of cases, it may even result in the death of a patient that could have recovered from the initial concern that brought them to the doctor in the first place. When this happens, people are left overwhelmed, distressed, and uncertain of what their options are. People that suffer a serious injury at the hands of those whose job it is to help them can feel betrayed; this may make it difficult for them to trust doctors or avoid care when they need it to avoid going to a hospital where they might be betrayed again.
At NOVA Injury Law, our firm is dedicated to gathering, analyzing, and presenting complex medical evidence to insurers and before the courts. We help patients who have been injured and bring claims on behalf of a patient’s loved ones if the patient has passed away.
More often than not, victims of medical malpractice are left with more than just the physical consequences of the doctor’s (or hospital’s) negligence. Many victims suffer various psychological effects from the incident, including generalized anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, a fear of hospitals, or a change from their regular selves. It is important that injury victims are properly compensated for these psychological effects in addition to their physical injuries, and our legal team will fight to maximize compensation for victims and their families.
How Can NOVA Injury Law Assist With a Long-Term Disability Benefits Case?
Long-term disability insurance policies are marketed as a safety net if you ever become unable to do your job. But the fact is if the worst happens and your health means you can’t work anymore, the big insurance companies will try everything to deny, reduce, or cut off your benefits. It’s not right, but it is the sad reality.
The long-term disability lawyers at NOVA Injury Law help people level the playing field with their insurance providers. We employ a vast network of trusted medical experts to build winning claims on undeniable evidence. We know what’s fair, and we’re not afraid to push back on behalf of our clients, even against major insurance companies with extensive resources to put towards cases. Cases of this nature will sometimes take an extended amount of time. NOVA Injury law will be with you every step of the way.
Unfortunately, unfair denial and wrongful termination of benefits do happen. The insurance company only really cares about the bottom line. Anyone who feels they have been treated unfairly by their long-term disability insurance provider can call NOVA Injury Law for a free case review. You’ll learn if you have a legitimate personal injury claim, what your next steps should be, and how we can help.
