Getting Compensation by Filing an Accident Claim
If your accident was caused by the negligence or reckless behaviour of another, you may be able to file an accident claim to be compensated for the harm you have suffered. Drunk drivers, people who don’t have control of their dogs, and property owners who fail to take care of a sidewalk that they knew were in poor repair – these are all examples of people who have shown disregard for the safety and well-being of others.
You are the Priority. Getting you Full and Fair Compensation is the Goal.
Many people don’t know the full cost of an accident-related injury. It goes beyond medical bills and can include wages lost during the time one couldn’t work. It may also mean the need to get household help and help with yard work, an occupational therapist, and/or transportation services. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, the compensation required may be far more than what the insurance company offers.
