A car accident can change one’s life forever. Here in Ontario, thousands of motorists suffer car accident-related injuries every year. Many of these car accidents affect residents of Hamilton, Burlington, Brantford and Niagara.
These collisions can result in serious injuries including torn ligaments, broken bones, chronic neck and back injuries – even spinal cord damage, brain injuries and death.
Following a car accident, many victims experience constant pain and suffering that can greatly diminish their ability to enjoy life, earn income and meet family responsibilities sometimes for life. The cumulative effect of their injuries can leave victims feeling despondent or even helpless.
If you have suffered a car accident related injury, or if your family has been devastated by a fatal car accident, we can help by providing the advice and the representation needed to ensure fair treatment from your insurance provider and subsequent claims against insurance companies and municipal or provincial authorities.
Depending upon the facts of your situation, your recovery may include compensation for physical and psychological suffering, lost income, along with assistance with the costs of current and future medical treatment/therapy. Many benefits are available regardless of fault.
