Suing for Injuries

Injury Lawyer | Personal Injury Lawyer - Car Crash

Suing the Other Driver in an Accident

There are a set of conditions and criteria that must be met before you are entitled to receive compensation for specific physical and psychological injuries as a result of a motor vehicle accident.

If the accident is not your fault, you can sue the at-fault party for various reasons including;

  1. Damages for pain and suffering
  2. Lost income on past and future economic loss
  3. Future medical and rehabilitation expenses
  4. Home maintenance and housekeeping services
  5. Out of pocket expenses
  6. Family members who have suffered a loss of care, guidance and companionship as a result of the accident

The claim must be started within two years of the date of the motor vehicle accident.

In order to succeed with your claim for pain and suffering, your injuries must meet certain requirements. This threshold does not apply for a claim for loss of income. You may be entitled to compensation for the effect the accident has on your salary and wages in the past and for the future.

It is important not to take any settlements offered by an insurance company without speaking to a personal injury lawyer as majority of the time, the insurance company will likely offer a minimal amount of money to settle.

If you are suffering from injuries due to a motor vehicle accident, it is important to contact your family doctor as soon as possible to schedule an appointment so that he or she has knowledge of your injuries and can provide you with recommendations for treatment.

At Impact Law, we will ensure your claim is advanced as soon as possible. It is important to speak to a lawyer about your rights almost immediately as there is a specific time period known as the “statute of limitation” in which the claim must be filed. Once we have received sufficient medical information from your doctor and any other medical specialist, we will be in a better position to provide you with a more specific assessment of your claim.
