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 with serious injuries 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 lawyer for support in your case. They will help you adequately research your case, file accurately and in a timely manner, and assure your injuries sustained are well documented by a professional medical consultant. If your case does not reach a settlement deal and goes to court, your legal representatives will be there to support you for the entirety of your personal injury lawsuit.
Should I Always Hire a Lawyer for My Claim?
While a lawyer can almost always increase the strength of your case, make it easier to file in a timely manner, and assist you with the more stressful aspects of the litigation process, 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 lawyer will make potential clients aware of this and be honest if they do not think their assistance will actually add any value to their personal injury claims. If you are not sure if you require the representation provided by a lawyer for your injury case, call our office to arrange for a free consultation or review your legal options.
How can a Lawyer Assist Me With a Car Accident Injury Claim?
First and foremost, anyone involved in a motor vehicle accident should seek out medical attention if they are injured; even seemingly minor injuries can represent a major health risk and should not be taken lightly. After car accidents, there are several steps injured parties need to take to get fair compensation. First, no matter who was at fault for the accident, everyone’s own car insurance provider is required to handle their insured’s property damage claim and health care costs claim, especially if one or more parties are uninsured. In the immediate aftermath of the accident, injured people turn to their own insurance company to pay for damage to their vehicle and the cost of medical care.
Second, people who suffer injury because of someone else’s bad driving are entitled to claim compensation from that person’s car insurance provider for lost future earning capacity, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and more. But the only way to access these funds is to seek them from the at-fault driver’s insurance company actively. And they don’t make it easy. Always speak with a lawyer before speaking with insurance adjusters for either party.
The Dartmouth car accident lawyers at NOVA Injury Law know what it takes to get fair compensation and insurance benefits after a motor vehicle accident. We build winning cases on clear evidence. We make it exceedingly difficult for the other side to dispute or deny the facts. NOVA Injury Law is a boutique law firm designed exclusively for injury law. We have what it takes to get our clients the most out of their injury claims.
Can NOVA Help Me with a Long-Term Disability Claim?
Having your application for long-term disability benefits denied or having your benefits cut off can be a very distressing experience. People pay premiums for years, never expecting to need their LTD benefits, and then when they do become disabled and unable to work, the insurance company does everything to make accessing benefits impossible.
It shouldn’t be this way, but people need NOVA Injury Law to level the playing field. These claims come down to medical facts. Whether people need to prove that they’re unable to complete the duties of their job or unable to complete the duties of any job, they need to demonstrate their disability through reports by credible medical experts.
NOVA Injury Law’s long-term disability lawyers in Dartmouth build winning cases on thorough medical understanding. We are the only law firm in Atlantic Canada with a practicing physician. Our long-term disability claimants receive the best legal and medical advice possible. If you have had your application for long-term disability benefits denied or had your benefits cut off, call NOVA Injury Law today for a free case review.
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 location was reasonably safe for a visitor.
If you have been injured because of an unsafe workplace or commercial space, 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. If you have been injured in an unsafe location and would like a lawyer to be involved on your behalf, please contact us.
