Suffered a personal injury? Who
should you call?
Unfortunately, the ways of suffering a personal injury
are as plentiful as the residents of Brampton. Citizens of this fast-growing city know all
about congested roads and the resulting traffic accidents – both between cars
and also involving pedestrians, bicyclists. But personal injuries – and the
need to make disability claims – extend far beyond traffic. There are many
other areas of tort law, covering negligence of parties causing harm, product
liability, host liability (bars and restaurants) and slip and fall incidents.
They can all trigger disability claims, and all fall into the complex ‘personal
injury' area of litigation.
Residents of Brampton should be aware there are local
specialists in the field of personal injury who are completely versed in
disability claim law.
If you are financially crippled after an accident, a personal injury lawyer
further assist you by taking on your case and not taking fees until a
settlement or trial verdict is reached. Booking consultations should also be
free and without obligation. And, in a multicultural city like Brampton, look
for a disability claims lawyer who speaks your language – literally. Some firms
are fluent in up to 15 languages and that can be a huge advantage to you in
negotiating the complex world of personal injury claims if your first language
is not English.

and later claimable. And in a world of competing insurance companies and
overlapping coverage, the lawyer will determine which company is responsible
for your benefits.
The lawyer can complete your Accident Benefits claim
forms and conduct the necessary follow-ups to the insurance company to make
sure your claim is processed as expeditiously as possible. Even in the world of
no-fault insurance – which ensures that you are covered to a certain
degree – there are different areas of
eligibility and you need to be confident you are claiming the maximum amount to
which you are eligible.

If there is a legal case to be made in the case of
negligence by the party who has caused your injury, the lawyer will begin
assembling the necessary evidence. This can include police records and witness gathering.

requires an early filing of a claim; your Brampton-based lawyer will know this
and make sure no deadline is missed.
