Victims of car accidents receive some of the biggest personal injury compensation payments, especially when the injury involves significant damage to the spine or brain and the victim gets the right guidance throughout the personal injury law suit process. This is absolutely vital because the average car crash victim does not understand what rights they have under the Insurance Act. Moreover, they often do not even understand the terms of their insurance policy (have you actually tried to read the fine print?).
It’s also important for you to know that there are many ways you can receive compensation. For example, there are car accident benefits that are payable immediately regardless of who was at fault for the car crash. In addition, the insurance company for the at-fault driver may be responsible for compensating for your pain and suffering, loss of income, health care expenses, the cost of a housekeeper and other losses.
You might expect that the only way to get significant injury compensation is by going to court, but this is just one of many myths surrounding personal injury law in Alberta. We have obtained, without going to court, significant personal injury rewards and in the process spared our clients the stress involved with going through the court system.
Other personal injury claims resulting from an automobile accident involve a medical problem that is not easily documented with an x-ray or other medical procedure. For example, many car crash accident victims receive “soft tissue” injuries that may result in significant pain and suffering, but are difficult to document medically. In this situation, it’s not uncommon for the insurance company to resist all claims for injury compensation, hoping that the victim will grow tired of the fight for compensation damages and give up. We have seen this tactic, along with many other stalling tactics, and know exactly how to respond – one more reason why we regularly receive referrals from doctors, other lawyers, and health care professionals.
The people who come to us have varying degrees of personal injuries, but there is no variance in the service you will receive from your Kiriak Law personal injury lawyer. We go all out for every client and in the process have obtained personal injury lawsuit rewards far beyond what our clients expected.
