Motor Vehicle Accident Case Study: Samantha

Don’t think a personal injury lawyer can make a difference? Check out what we did for our client, Samantha, after she suffered serious injuries in a motor vehicle accident.

Samantha was involved in a motor vehicle accident that left her with severe injuries and an inability to care for her family.  As she passed through an intersection, a car that failed to stop at a stop sign fully forcefully struck Samantha’s driver-side door. On impact, the airbags were deployed, and she felt immediate and excruciating pain in her back, neck, shoulders and hips. Samantha was rushed to the hospital for further assessment of her injuries.

Samantha’s Traumatic Injuries

Earlier in her life, Samantha struggled with both mental and physical health issues. However, immediately before the accident, she was healthy and happy. After her car crash, Samantha was diagnosed with a labrum tear in her left hip and experienced a sharp decline in her mental health. Medical experts stressed that her physical and mental health symptoms were very tied together. Before the accident, Samantha was an extremely active person. She was a runner, weightlifter, yogi, and coach on her children’s hockey teams. Since the collision, she is no longer able to participate in the physical, social, and family activities that were her passion.

How our Firm Helped Samantha

We helped Samantha along the recovery process, including arranging some rehab, such as meetings with psychologists and specialists. Before her accident, she spent many hours per week cooking and cleaning for her two children. We helped arrange and secure funding for a cook and cleaner for her following the injury. We also helped her secure compensation for her pain, suffering, and overall loss of quality of life.

Samantha’s Lawsuit

Our firm opened a lawsuit and accident benefits claim against the driver who hit Samantha at the intersection. The lawyers prepared her for discovery and then mediation. Both parties were able to agree on a settlement at mediation. She also received compensation from her accident benefits claim. Her kids and husband received compensation because of their loss of care, companionship, and guidance due to the injury. Samantha received funds for her loss of income and need for rehab care and house cleaning.  Our client was happy with her settlement, knowing that her family was taken care of and she would no longer have to worry about missing work due to her injury.

    Motor Vehicle Accident Case Study: Noah

    Think your life is over after a serious motor vehicle accident? Noah was surprised to learn that there is life after disability—if you choose the right lawyer.

    On a cold January morning, Noah was stopped at an intersection on his way home from work. Suddenly, a car rear-ended him, propelling his car into the vehicle stopped directly in front of him. Paramedics and police officers rushed to the scene, and although Noah did not initially visit the hospital, he later realized the severity of his neck and back pain.

    Noah’s Traumatic Injuries

    Following his accident, Noah was diagnosed with migraines, whiplash, back and shoulder pain, headaches and anxiety. His injuries severely impacted his quality of life and caused lots of suffering for him and his family. Before his accident, Noah was a social person who enjoyed spending time with friends and going to the movies. Now, he feels uncomfortable gathering with friends since they do not understand his struggles.

    How our Firm Helped Noah

    We helped Noah and his family receive compensation for their pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life as well as income replacement based on his lost wages from work. We also helped Noah secure funding for his increased childcare and housekeeping costs since the accident.  Under the Family Law Act, we assisted his wife in receiving compensation based on her loss of companionship, support and increased responsibilities following the accident.

    Noah’s Lawsuit

    Our firm started a lawsuit and accident benefits claim against the car driver who rear-ended Noah on his family and his behalf. The lawyers helped Noah prepare for the examination for discovery. The liability was clearly on the driver who rear-ended him. With the help of experts, we estimated Noah’s economic losses, including lost wages and future care, and non-economic losses, including pain and suffering. The case did not settle at mediation because not all parties could agree on a fair amount. So, the case proceeded to pre-trial, where a judge reviewed each parties’ case in detail. Eventually, we reached a settlement that all parties were happy with. Noah received compensation from both the accident benefits settlement and the lawsuit. Noah was delighted, knowing that he and his family would no longer have to worry about an uncertain financial future stemming from his injury.

      Motor Vehicle Accident Case Study: Liam

      What if hiring a personal injury lawyer after an accident could change your life? Liam’s life was changed when he hired Auger Hollingsworth after a serious bike accident.

      On his bike ride to work at a coffee shop, Liam was struck by a taxi driver trying to overpass another car. The collision knocked Liam off his bike and damaged both the car and bike. His injuries worsened over time and have prevented him from returning to his job at the coffee shop. Many specialists diagnosed Liam with life-altering cognitive, psychological and physical injuries.

      Liam’s Traumatic Injuries

      Liam suffers from daily headaches, poor memory, vision problems, bladder and bowel problems, dental problems, body pain and anxiety.  Before his accident, Liam was an active sportsperson who participated in cycling, golf and roller bladder. He even had plans to participate in a cycling race later in the year of his accident.  Now, his recreational activities have stopped completely. His family and marital life have also suffered significantly. Before the accident, he had plans to marry his girlfriend, but they are now distant. He explained how being a 30-year-old with a scooter and cane can hurt his self-esteem.

      How our Firm Helped Liam

      Our firm helped Liam receive income replacement based on his inability to work and compensation for his pain and suffering. We also helped arrange some of Liam’s rehab needs, including chiropractic care and physiotherapy. Due to his injury, Liam cannot take care of his house, so we arranged a maid service to visit his house weekly and secured funds for housekeeping costs.

      Liam’s Lawsuit

      Our firm opened a lawsuit and accident benefits claim against the taxi driver who hit Liam. The lawyers prepared him for the examination for discovery and mediation. The liability was clearly on the taxi driver, who did not check before making a turn. Both parties agreed on a settlement at mediation involving both the tort and catastrophic accident benefits claim. In the end, Liam received both an accident benefits and lawsuit settlement. Liam was happy that he no longer had to worry about his inability to work or take care of his house.
