How You Can Ease the Process of Settling your Ontario Personal Injury Claim

When working with your Ontario Personal Injury Lawyer there are a few things you can do to make the process of settling your motor vehicle accident or insurance benefits claim easier. Making sure to make the process as simple as possible will benefit you in a number of ways, including faster results and less stress.

How Can Documentation Help With Your Personal Injury Claim?

Make sure to keep copies of any forms you are asked to fill out including medical documents, Ontario Claims Forms, and hospital documents. You should also use a journal to document any discussions you have had with your doctor or therapist, helping to ensure precise recall of the events. Be sure to note the date, time, the contact info for those who are helping with your treatment plan, and any prescriptions. Keep the receipts for the services, devices or other expenses incurred as a result of your injury or care.

What your employer should know while you recover from personal injury

Your employer should be informed immediately that you need time to heal. The company that you work for likely provides a program to help you ease back into work depending on doctor’s orders.

Communicating with your employer from the beginning will help to ensure your smooth transition.
You should always update your Ontario Personal Injury Lawyer with any changes in your condition or new information obtained regarding your case. Don’t delay as this information could be vital to closing your claim.

Never share the details of your claim with anyone besides your personal injury lawyer or those the lawyer has approved. Your Ontario injury lawyer will be able to answer any questions you may have about your case thanks to his or her extensive experience.

When in doubt, talk to your Ontario personal injury lawyer

If you are ever in doubt about anything at all contact your Ontario Personal Injury lawyer for clarification. There is no bigger mistake than delaying an important question because you feel you shouldn’t need to ask. Getting clarification where there is confusion is vital to wrapping up your case as quickly as possible and avoiding mistakes that could impact your ability to collect.
