The following posts will shed some light on how your Ontario injury lawyer can help, what deadlines could affect your claim, and how to talk to your insurance adjuster to ensure the best possible outcome for your case.
If you are involved in a car accident and sustain injuries because of the accident, you should talk to a personal injury lawyer.
In fact, anyone who has been involved in a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, boating accident, recreational vehicle accident such as ATVs, pedestrian or bike accident, and accidents involving public transit or transportation vehicles, should contact a personal injury lawyer. The sooner the better.
A limitation period is the period of time that a person has between an event, such as the accident or the denial of a benefit, and when he or she must take a step to protect a right. These limitation periods are extremely important. If your claim is not submitted in time, before the limitation period expires, your right to sue could be lost.
After a car or motorcycle crash occurs, one of the first calls we make is to our insurance company. While it is certainly necessary and required that you inform your insurance company of the auto accident, you may want to contact an Ontario personal injury lawyerif you have suffered any injuries.
