Sydney Personal Injury Lawyers Putting You on the Road to Recovery
At NOVA Injury Law, we are the only personal injury law firm serving Sydney with a doctor on our team, and that’s what sets us apart from other law firms. We’ve handled personal injury cases in Cape Breton, such as car accidents, slip-and-fall, and other incidents that have resulted in injuries, loss, or disability. To some, only focusing on injury and insurance law may seem like a narrow focus. While other law firms may take on a wide variety of cases, we dedicate 100% of our time and energy to helping injury victims because that is our passion and because intense legal expertise and focus are what you need when dealing with injury law. With our experienced personal injury lawyers at the helm, victims can instead focus their efforts on recovery and rehabilitation without the stress of medical bills and concerns regarding litigation looming over their heads. That’s why we offer contingency fee basis plans for some types of cases – if we don’t win, you don’t pay.
We know that accidents can be overwhelming and stressful for the victims and families involved. That’s why you should trust our team to handle all the legal aspects of personal injury claims. We will perform a free case evaluation and analyze the information presented to determine if you have a case and how much your claim could be worth. Our goal is to help every client we serve in Cape Breton and beyond understand their options and legal rights and make informed decisions about their legal claim to obtain fair compensation for their injuries. We work closely with medical professionals to fight for maximum compensation by the use of solid, professionally backed data and will use our resources to fight for you throughout the litigation process, regardless of how long your case may last. If you have questions regarding our legal services or are interested in a free consultation, please call NOVA Injury Law at 1-800-262-8104.
Can NOVA’s Sydney Personal Injury Lawyers Help With Car Accident Claims?
Yes, we can; experienced personal injury lawyers are often involved with car accident claims and can help you recover compensation from the insurance companies involved. Car accidents can be seriously traumatic events that can cause the victim to sustain injuries, both physical and psychological, that can leave the victim feeling lost. When involved in a motor vehicle accident, you may not understand the next steps to file a successful claim and protect your rights along the way. When an insurance adjuster contacts you, are you sure you know what to say? In the moments after a car accident, your focus should be on taking care of your injuries and not dealing with insurance adjusters. You need a personal injury lawyer to help handle the legal aspects of your car accident. It is for this reason that we recommend speaking with an insurance adjuster before retaining legal support. Anything you say to an adjuster that might inadvertently hint you were responsible for the accident could affect your claim and your insurance payments.
With our experienced car accident lawyer by your side, you can be guaranteed that you have a voice that will fight for you until your case is fairly resolved. We will help you understand your options in the claim process, prove who was at fault in the accident, and determine the amount of compensation you deserve. We consider all losses, including pain and suffering due to the car accident, as well as past and future economic loss, lost opportunities, and impacts felt at home. Our lawyers will make the legal process smooth and effective so you can focus on your recovery and feel confident that your rights are being protected.
Have you sustained injuries after a car accident? Is an insurance company offering an early settlement amount that doesn’t seem fair? Consult our car accident lawyer today to review your case for free, with no obligation. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to help you deal with accidents immediately, whenever they may strike.
Can an Injury Lawyer Help Me With Slip-and-Fall Accidents?
A dangerous slip, trip, or fall can happen to anyone, anywhere, and at any time if the conditions are right. The law requires that property owners maintain a safe property for visitors in all conditions and times of the year. 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 a danger until it was too late or because the owner realized the problem but neglected to put systems into place to fix a potentially dangerous situation. Perhaps, for example, a high-traffic area was not made safe during snow or rain, leading to a slipping hazard, or a set of steps was not made adequately visible, leading some visitors to trip over them and fall to the bottom. While the property owner probably did not intend for someone to get hurt in either scenario, an injury claim can be pursued so long as it can be proven the owner acted negligently. The question to be asked is whether or not the premises were reasonably safe for a visitor. In either scenario, your medical expenses may be covered by the negligent party.
If you have been injured because of an unsafe location, 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.
Can Nova’s Sydney Personal Injury Lawyers Work With Me on a Long-Term Disability Benefits Case?
Wondering if you or a loved one is eligible for long-term disability? Has your claim been denied? We can help. Often, we think that disability insurance provided by our insurance or employer is meant to work as a kind of safety net, something to protect you when disaster strikes and help you get back on your feet. It can be blindsiding then when an insurance company you’ve never had an issue with suddenly deprives you of your disability benefits. This, unfortunately, is a reality that too many victims live with every day. At the end of the day, the nature of the insurance industry is money driven, meaning that the average insurance company’s primary focus is their own bottom line, and they have the resources to be sure that their adjusters are working non-stop to lessen the amount they have to pay out, regardless of how many claims get changed, canceled, or outright denied.
Our long-term disability lawyers will gather all medical evidence needed to support your claim. We are the only personal injury law firm operating in Prince Edward Island with a practicing physician as part of our team. With the help of Dr. Laura Mitchell, our clients receive the best legal and medical advice to support their claim to get the financial compensation they deserve. Our doctor will aid in proving to the insurance company the extent of your injuries and supporting our lawyers to gather and present compelling medical evidence to show the true impact of your injuries.
Whether you’re unsure if you qualify for disability benefits or you already applied but were denied coverage, consult our experienced injury lawyers to understand your options.
My Injury Doesn’t Seem That Bad. Should I Still Hire an Injury Lawyer or get Medical Attention?
This is a common question with a simple answer: always err on the side of caution when it comes to your health because your overall quality of life is no small matter. We only get one body, so if ours gets injured due to the carelessness of another, we are entitled to compensation. If you may have been injured in an accident of any kind, it is crucial that you seek emergency medical care or a follow-up with your primary physician. When your injuries are taken care of, a lawyer can help you document them and file for compensation accordingly. No case is too small to be taken seriously because no one can predict how an injury will affect their overall quality of life until they are in the middle of it. There are also a number of reasons that an accident victim may feel fine immediately after but still need medical attention. Because the way adrenaline is released during dangerous situations affects our bodies, accident victims might not be fully aware of the extent of their injuries right away. Some injuries, like concussions, might not reveal themselves with symptoms until a bit of time after the accident takes place.
While a lawyer can almost always increase the strength of your case, make it easier to file an accurately documented case in a timely manner, and assist you with the more stressful aspects of the litigation process, not every case requires a lawyer in order to turn out in your fav our. Sometimes, you will be able to complete your case on your own. Generally, a lawyer should be able to increase your total take home beyond what you would have been able to win on your own, even after your legal fees are taken care of. A good lawyer will be honest with you if they do not think their assistance will actually add any value to your personal injury case, with legal fees in consideration. If you are not sure whether or not you require the assistance of a lawyer for your claim, call our office to arrange for a free consultation or to review your legal options.
