Attorneys Can Help Protect Your Financial Health

Personal Injury Lawyers Protect your Personal and Financial Health

Here is an interesting article that is written by a Canadian regarding personal injury in that country, but the aspects of this article also apply to people in the United States and especially those in the Chicago area.

We take our ongoing health for granted, yet many people are injured at work or play in sports through no fault of their own. After being disabled for long periods their benefits run out. A good personal injury lawyer helps protect your rights if you ever fall into this difficult situation. In an age of no fault legislation, you can’t take anything for granted anymore.

The Ontario government recently launched a province-wide television advertising campaign to warn workers about workplace accidents. The intent of the campaign is okay since it reminds young, low wage workers that strange accidents can take place, accidents that can tragically alter their lives.

On the other hand, it is employers who must exercise due caution and provide employees with the knowledge of how to avoid accidents. When employers lose site of their employees rights and health, employees may be injured, not by their own actions but by a fellow employee. People go to work with a sense of innocence and trust. We trust that the workplace is safe and that co-workers understand and appreciate safety. Even at the local hockey rinks, hockey players suffer severe head and limb injuries, many highly publicized, yet the injured parties do not always experience short term losses.

When we hear of workplace accidents, we tend to think of construction or transportation industries, but personal injury can happen many different ways to affect health and happiness. From chemical exposure and smoke inhalation to repetitive motion injuries in office work, to auto accidents, to falls from ladders and icy sidewalks, people are injured every day in a variety of ways. Whether the bottom line issue is industrial and workplace design or improper work procedure, the employee is doing what they’re told and hence is a vulnerable position.

The courts are under tremendous pressure with many cases backlogged from years ago. Many courts across North America are facing these same challenges and trying to cope with the outfall of problems caused by negligent employers. Whether employees suffer personal injury or are fired for insufficient causes, those same employees often turn to social assistance and the government faces a financial burden. This may be the cause for the ad campaigns as penalties for employers who jeopardize employee’s health and their rights to fair employment.

Several years ago my brother was killed by a negligent truck driver. The driver of the semi forgot to lock down his trailer properly. As he left his employer’s yard, the trailers swung out wildly into the other lane colliding with my brother’s truck travelling in the other direction. He was a pivotal member of his own and other families in the city he lived in and his death was a huge loss. At the time, no one thought about the financial implications, since everyone was too distraught to think clearly at all.

Fortunately, a personal injury lawyer was involved quickly to ensure evidence was properly taken and accounted for. Interviews were conducted by police as well and the matter went to trial. The end result was that his wife received compensation. His family did not receive compensation for their loss. Although compensation in some form is right,

The offender did not serve time in jail and only lost his license for a short period. This highlights the importance of having a personal injury lawyer to protect your interests in the event of an accident. The legal climate is very lenient toward employers and companies that.

auto accident

Only a few years ago, police conducted roadside checks of vehicles travelling on Toronto area highways. They found horrendous conditions in vehicles and transport trucks were always the worst. Some of the trucking companies were habitual offenders. U Haul vehicles for instance were chronically mentioned with problems ranging from worn brakes to broken axles. Trucking companies named continued to be found guilty of these equipment problems years after the roadside checks and even after being warned and fined by the courts.

The roadside checks in the Toronto area aren’t being conducted anymore despite the fact they were finding lots of faulty vehicles. Did the police just get tired and give up? Was it a political nightmare that they couldn’t force the trucking companies to improve? It’s something to think about because every year here in Toronto, people are injured by big transport trucks that had some sort of mechanical failure. If they aren’t bad enough, there are plenty of motorists driving at high speeds and in a reckless manner.

Personal Injury Legislation

In discussions with Toronto Lawyers I discovered that many employers are cavalier about how they treat and view employees. The need to cut costs and see employees in terms of their dollar cost, demeans the employee and sets the stage for a culture of carelessness in the workplace whether that workplace is inside a building or out on the highways. If employers have a positive regard for their employees, then safety and caution will always prevail.

Employment laws in Ontario in recent years have been diminished leaving employees very vulnerable to negligent employers who ignore legal requirements such as the adoption of proper safety precautions exist in the workplace.

Those injured on the job may have taken all the necessary safety precautions. After being injured at the workplace however, they face an uncertain financial future. Insurance policies or income assistance benefits only last so long. Injured people tend to focus on their immediate circumstances and rightfully so, since their security is far from certain.

When the payments stop, the injured find they’re in serious financial trouble.

Another young man I know had his back injured on the job. Years later, his back still hurts and makes him incapacitated. Despite his disability, unemployment insurance payments stopped and he’s now faced with a difficult situation that affects his emotional health and ability to take care of his children. At that time, he needed legal consultation, because these issues don’t disappear quickly and at some point in time, their source of compensation disappears.

People left with exorbitant medical bills and medication costs, and others left in a wheelchair find themselves living below the poverty. Workman’s Compensation is one government bureaucracy that has become much tougher on claimants. The environment over the last ten years has been to minimize worker’s rights with new no-fault legislation. Now Toronto workers cannot sue other employees who are a key source of work-related accidents. Instead they can apply for workers compensation benefits and yet there is no guarantee these payments won’t be cut off at any time.

Going it alone in facing the workman’s compensation board, insurance companies, and government assistance offices isn’t necessary. Even if your employer took all precautions and measures, it is still your right to take them to court for compensation for your losses.

A good Toronto personal injury lawyer can help protect your rights and ensure you have access to financial resources. Their knowledge and experience with the Ontario courts and recent changes in laws, will help you navigate the difficult legal climate surrounding legal action against employers and other negligent parties.

If you’ve been injured or suffered because of someone else’s neglect and carelessness, a consultation with a Toronto personal injury lawyer might just be a lifesaving conversation.

Filing a Personal Injury Claim

Automobile accidents and and injuries that occur on the job site can be the foundation of a personal injury claim.  These types of injuries will incur costs in terms of medical care,  loss of income,damage to personal property, and pain and suffering.  In the Chicago area, including Cook County and the rest of Illinois, the injured party can file a claim against the other party to collect compensation to cover these costs.  

If you file a claim as the victim in these types of accidents, you can receive funds that will help you get back your health and return to your daily routine.  Victims will need to get the most compensation they can by filing a personal injury claim which will require a good personal injury lawyer to assist them.

One person or entity may be the cause of the injuries suffered in the accident and the victim can enlist the assistance of a personal injury attorney in order to garner the compensation that it rightfully due him as a result of the accident.  A personal injury claim can include the cost of medical bills, the cost of repairs to vehicle in the case of an automobile accident, plus punitive damages as a result of negligence by the party causing the accident.  Sometimes, long term care is also required as is the case of whiplash or injuries to the back which can linger for some time.

There are many different law firms in the Chicago area which will  take on no win no fee personal injury cases.  This means that the attorney will only receive payment if the personal injury claim results in a payment to the injured party.  By doing so, it means that the case is not just a frivolous suit on the part of the victim as attorneys generally to no work pro bono on their cases.  Personal injury cases can involve large sums of money, especially when you take into account the lost wages and huge medical bills that are likely to arise. 

If you have been involved in an accident where it is not your fault, then you should seek out a personal injury lawyer that specializes in these types of claims.  Firms who specialize in this type of case are familiar with the process of filing a claim and the amount of money that should be awarded in these types of cases, should the case prove to be valid in the eyes of the law.  Sometimes, the amount you have in your own mind may differ from that of the attorney, but that is to be expected as they are the ones who are experienced in these matters.

The idea of receiving compensation for pain and suffering is a difficult one to understand, especially with regard to the amounts associated with it.  However, the court system has a set of formulas that are used to determine the amount to be received as compensation, whether you agree with that amount or not.

If you have been in an accident, it is generally not a trivial matter.  For this reason it is best to consult with a personal injury lawyer who can help you receive compensation for what you may have lost as a result of the accident.

Picking the Right Attorney

As with everything in life, it pays to be careful when choosing an attorney to represent you in a personal injury case.  This is due to the fact that the difference between receiving a large amount of compensation for your personal injury and receiving what can be considered as chump change does not totally depend on the facts attributable to the case.  The reason why some lawyers receive large judgements and other do not has to do with the the decision making on the part of the attorney while the case progresses.

As they say, the devil is in the details and so it is with personal injury cases.  Right from the time when the injury occurred to the conclusion of the case, decisions made by legal counsel and actions on their part will ultimately affect the final outcome of the matter.

personal injury attorney

Consider this — let’s say that your case moves along and now it’s time to decide whether to accept a settlement offer from the other party out of court, or to proceed to go to trial instead.  Since it is a virtual certainty that this decision will lie on the facts, judgement, and experience of your attorney.  So, will your lawyer be able to determine if the other party will offer more money to settle the case or not?  Can your attorney determine that if you should reject and out of court settlement and go to court that you will most likely end up with receiving a lot less money than what you are being offered? 

For these reasons its a good idea to do some research on prospective attorneys before choosing one to represent you and your case.  Don’t just assume that the every lawyer is equal in terms of experience and ability.  They, like everyone else whom you come into contact with, are different in terms of what they can deliver.

However, one thing that will help in terms of this is the fact that you don’t have to pay legal fees up front.  A good personal injury lawyer will work on a contingency basis rather than on a pay-as-you-go basis.  This means that if your attorney does not get any compensation for you, then you will owe no legal fees.  An incompetent attorney can not stay in business very long if his efforts are all for nought.  The success of a firm operating on such a payment basis may be a good indicator as to the competentcey of the prospective attorney you might hire.

Personal Injury Accident Claims Regulation

Many personal injury accident claims are made during stressful and often painful periods of a person’s life. For this reason, the claims management companies that facilitate access to justice for people who have been injured through no fault of their own have a duty to make the process as stress-free as possible.

The claimant must know that they can trust the people that they are dealing with – they should not feel harassed, bullied or unsure of what is happening. They should feel that they are in control, and under professional care from a fully qualified solicitor.

The area of personal injury compensation is rightly subject to strict regulation. It is important that a framework is developed in which a claimant can trust that he or she is being given appropriate and honest help and advice.

Not all claims management companies feel the same way, however. There will always be people who attempt to flout the rules in order to make a quick win from injured and stressed people.

personal injury law firm tv commercial

Recently the Ministry of Justice issued a warning to the public regarding three businesses acting as claims management companies. The companies have been accused of providing regulated claims management services without authorisation.

They are making unsolicited telephone calls to consumers promoting personal injury claims. Cold calling such as this is now against the law to protect the public from companies such as these. Despite various enquiries the Ministry of Justice has been unable to contact the businesses concerned and has appealed for information to the public – as well as urging them to proceed with caution.

The businesses concerned are National Compensation Consumer Line, Compensation Consumer Survey Line and Personal Injury Hotline.

It is important that the claims management industry does not allow itself to be tarred by charlatans hovering on the fringes of the market. People need to have access to justice. They should not feel in any way stigmatised or unsure about their right to make a claim.

A compensation claim can help insure that fair and appropriate compensation is received. It is important that anyone making a claim for compensation after an accident feels comfortable with the process – they should make sure that they work with a solicitor that understands what they are doing and can help to keep the process stress free. Someone who has suffered an injury has enough on their plate!

Money will not fix everything, or put a stop to the pain or psychological damage. But it can be a useful and important tool to give an accident victim control back over their life, especially if the claimant has had to take time off work or pay large medical bills.

Getting in touch with a professional claims company can be the first stage in moving on with your life after an injury. If you’re planning on making a personal injury claim, you need to ensure that your claims company is regulated, and you need to feel comfortable with the way the claims company treats you, before going ahead.
