  • Without Lalande Personal Injury Lawyers, I would not have received a successful settlement on the appeal of my denied disability claim. Matt Lalande’s experience, professionalism and knowledge were invaluable throughout the entire process.

  • I was in a head on wreck and suffered a tibial plateau fracture. Matt settled my case for my a few months back and set me up in such a good way so that I can pay all my education and start fresh in something that can accommodate me. He recently settled my accident benefits when I didn’t even expect much else. Matt is the best. I am so happy that I was referred to him.

  • My husband was involved in a motor vehicle accident in 2013. He managed to survive the crash yet had serious and multiple injuries to deal with. Luckily, we were directed to our lawyer, Matt Lalande, who took charge of the entire legal process to get my husband fair compensation for all the hurdles he’s faced since. It’s been a bumpy roller coaster ride to say the least (recurring operations and infections to deal with the injuries sustained, numerous medical appointments, ongoing paperwork, not being able to return to work along with all the uncertainties of not knowing what the future holds…). Through all of this, Matt and his team helped us navigate the system, kept us informed at all times and gave us options to use in the end. We are so thankful to Matt and his legal associates for keeping us focused throughout this lengthy process. It takes patience and a great deal of determination to get through these battles and the Lalande team knows how to get it done!

  • My husband had a slip and fall and was off work for quite a while – Matt got us a settlement that was very generous. Dealing with Matt was an easy process. He kept us well informed along the way and was quickly forthcoming when we asked for updates. This was the first time we had ever been through this process and Matt really did all the heavy lifting for us. We are grateful for his help in this matter.

Car Accidents cause Skyrocketing Debt

There’s no doubt that life-altering injuries cause a car accident victim to rocket into crushing debt if he or she is unable to work and provide for themselves or their family. As Hamilton’s car accident lawyers, we understand that car accident victims may be left with life long-term physical disabilities which cause disruptions in their quality of life, cause limitations in mobility, interupt the ability to work, cause problems with ADL’s and social functioning, psychological complicaitons, medical complications and sleep issues. It is also common for car accident victims to suffer serious brain injuries whcih cause permanent neural impairment, memory impairment, personality and behavioral changes, impaired social and coping skills, as well as lifestyle consequences such as unemployment, loss of independence and difficulty maintaining interpersonal relationships.

Approaching a car accident law firm may seem scary, but at our firm, you can relax and expect to be treated like an extension of our family, period.

After a life-changing car accident, you probably have a lot of questions.

We understand that serious car accident injuries can cause potential devastating impacts including far-reaching physical, social and psychological consequences. Often times with seriously injured car accident victims require an immense amount of rehabilitation in order to property reintegrate into the community and adjustment to a very different lifestyle with the re-establishment of satisfying work and interpersonal relationships. Also, we understand that the emotional recovery from a serious car accident is dependent on proper rehabilitation and structure in one’s life – rehabilitation which is often brutally expensive.

If you have been seriously injured, there is no doubt that life can suddenly become tragic and difficult. Personal injuries may prevent you from going to work, enjoying your life, sleeping, spending time with your loved ones, exercising, and living your life with the comfort and enjoyment you are used to. You also may be overwhelmed and suffering from emotional, physical, and financial burdens.

We also understand that you will have lots of unanswered questions. Who will pay the bills and the additional costs of rehabilitation? Who will help at home if you are unable to take care of yourself? What if you can’t work and earn an income to pay your mortgage? What if you have to borrow money from your line of credit or credit cards to buy groceries? Who will take care of your loved ones?

SPEAK WITH A CAR ACCIDENT LAWYER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE

img

If you have been seriously hurt in a car accident, it’s important that you speak to an experienced car accident lawyer in Hamilton sooner rather than later, especially before you speak with an insurance company.

We often explain to our new clients that retaining our law firm early can assist with your discharge from the hospital, especially if you suffered orthopedic trauma or underwent surgery. We can also help you hire the proper occupational therapist to measure your functional ability; obtain a true reflection of your home environment and your ability to function in that environment; and have the proper attendant care put in place.

If you wait too long to hire an experienced car accident lawyer in Hamilton, insurance companies will hire their own occupational therapist and, more likely than not, provide you with only the minimum requirements to fit your needs.

It’s better to have a patient-retained occupational therapist to assist with your pre and post-discharge assessments, make recommendations regarding fall prevention, assess the ability to transfer you, and review your ability for self-care. If you do not have family members helping you after your accident, your occupational therapist and lawyer can make recommendations for your safety and ensure that the insurers pay for the implementation of these recommendations.

WHAT IS MY CAR ACCIDENT CASE WORTH?

Most of our clients ask us this question – and we tried to answer it as extensively as possible here.  Unfortunately, putting an exact dollar amount on your case is a very difficult thing to do, mostly because every case is different. It’s simply not possible to accurately estimate or determine what each case is worth until we are approaching resolution or trial. There is no formula or magic chart to determine a range of compensation.

What we can tell you is that our Hamilton auto accident lawyers are dedicated to obtaining the maximum compensation for you and your family. We never recommend resolving a case without full investigation, without our clients recovering to their full possible potential, or without obtaining proper medical opinions from experts to provide an opinion on how your injuries will affect your future.

While insurance companies are dedicated to minimizing your compensation, an experienced car accident lawyer from Lalande Personal Injury Lawyers will present your case in a professional and persuasive way.

Factors that will no doubt be important in determining your entitlement to compensation are the severity of your injury, your medical treatment, the permanency of your injury or disfigurement, the amount of your lost wages, and, more importantly, how much insurance is available under policy limits. Equally important is the reputation of the insurance company defending your case. While all insurance companies are more than happy to withdraw monthly premiums from the bank accounts of their policyholders, several insurance companies have a reputation for being determined to pay out as little as possible.

While some lawyers want to settle cases as fast as possible, we always pursue maximum compensation for our clients and will put what is in your best interest first.

HAVE YOU BEEN HURT BY A DRIVER THAT WAS DISTRACTED? WE CAN HELP.

Police in Ontario have recently reported that distracted driving is causing more collisions than speeding and impaired driving combined. The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) reported that they have made roughly 15,000 to 20,000 distracted driving charges on OPP-patrolled roads every year from 2011 through 2016.

Unfortunately, many people inaccurately think distracted driving is only talking or texting. Distracted driving is being focused on anything that diverts your attention from the road. Activities like using a GPS device, putting on makeup, fiddling with a radio, shaving, using a smartphone, eating, drinking, watching a video, and texting can take your attention away from the road and cause a crash.

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a group that educates Americans about the dangers of distracted driving, shows that texting is the most alarming distraction. Sending or reading a single text takes your eyes off the road for five seconds. At ninety kilometers per hour, that’s like driving the length of an entire football field with your eyes closed.

There is no doubt that distracted driving accidents can cause a variety of devastating injuries. If you have become the victim of someone else’s failure to focus on the road, we can help you recover the compensation you need to move forward with your life.
