If you or a loved one suffer a devastating catastrophic injury, it will likely feel as though your world has been flipped upside down. Accidents are never predictable, and no one is ever prepared for the fallout. Unexpected life-changing consequences can therefore cause serious physical, emotional, psychological, and financial stress.
Regardless of what type of accident you were in, you deserve fair compensation for the suffering you have gone through. We know that no amount of financial compensation will make up for the pain. However, a fair settlement can help bring you some peace of mind while you recover.
We have worked with victims who have suffered severe injuries such as:
Matt Lalande and his team of Sudbury personal injury lawyers have worked extensively with spinal cord injury victims in Sudbury and across Ontario. We have worked firsthand with those who suffer from paraplegia, quadriplegia, and other physical impairments. As a result, we have collected a versatile range of resources, connections, and knowledge in the particular needs spinal cord injury victims have.
If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury, you will feel as a part of a group in the hospital. Yet, when a person returns home, reality changes. He or she must now find a way to integrate with family, friends and the community at large. There is often a tremendous amount of anxiety returning home and an accident victim must now face all the unknowns of waiting for them in the real world. On top of that, there are health concerns and care considerations you will need to adapt.
Upon your return home after a spinal cord injury in Sudbury, you will have specific needs that must be met. These needs include house modifications, accessibility features, appropriate wheelchairs and equipment, and more. You will likely also require specific care services, and vehicle modifications later down the road. All of these costs can add up quickly: the lifetime cost of a spinal cord injury in Ontario can reach $5 million to $15 million. We can retain the appropriate medical personnel to ensure that your home is ready for your return, attendant care is hired and you have everything you need to ensure your comfort.
If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury, it’s important that you start the claims process early. This allows time to engage the appropriate occupational therapists who will assist with your or your loved ones discharge from the hospital or regional rehabilitation center to home.
Once an accident victim returns home and no longer within the safe walls of a rehab unit, the real adjustment to the injury begins. In the hospital, everything revolves around a disabled person and his or her new injury. Most needs are attended to, each problem is solved and any medical questions are answered.
Although most people with a serious injury experience a period of excitement when they first return home, this is often followed by a repeat of the set emotions previously faced in the early days of rehab: sadness, resentment, anger at the person that hurt you, frustration and anxiety. It’s important that the proper therapies are valuated, projected and paid for – and this is something that our lawyers can help with.
In starting the claims and recovery process against the at-fault person that caused your pain, our Sudbury personal injury lawyers will ensure that all of your needs are met. We will also ensure that everything is paid for either by your own insurance company or the negligent party’s insurance company. We will leave no stone unturned and ensure that you are taken care of financially, presently and for the rest of your life.
As your legal representation, we will obtain the necessary documentation, evidence, reports, and medical examinations from you in order to carefully and confidentially analyze the details of your situation. This will allow us to provide a detailed valuation on your claim. It is also required to determine the maximum compensation to which you are entitled. From there, we will employ top medical and vocational professionals who may assist in strengthening your claim and proving the injuries the accident has caused.
We will ensure, for example, that your home is modified to accommodate your disability, your ambulatory aids are paid for, and any rehabilitation, either physical or psychological is paid for.
The answer is dependent on whether or not you suffered a serious life changing injury. If you been the victim of any sort of serious personal injury, we would be more than happy to evaluate your case. We will also consider the merits of your case, and determine whether or not you may be eligible for significant compensation for your injuries. Speaking to us costs nothing – and we will never ask you for any payment, at any time, during your case.
Every personal injury claim is unique and based on varying circumstances. This is why we will need to speak with you or your family to obtain all of the details surrounding your accident or injury. After we have a comprehensive understanding of the specifics of your case, we can determine the claims that you are entitled to make.
Once your case is taken, you will never have to worry again. Insurance companies are notoriously difficult to deal with. They will often go at great lengths to underpay you or undervalue your claim.
Depending on the circumstances of your injury and the accident, you could be eligible for financial compensation such as:
