When you suffer a personal injury, you deserve to be compensated for your pain, suffering, and losses. In serious cases, your family members may also deserve compensation. Personal injuries can result from a variety of causes, each having a different set of rules, regulations and process to navigate. Insurance companies and adjusters quickly become involved, which can be overwhelming and quite daunting to injured persons and their families, and especially during the time when their focus should be on medical care, treatment and rehabilitation.
Having a personal injury lawyer become involved early in the process can and will relieve this unnecessary stress, will ensure that no necessary steps in protecting your rights are missed, and finally, will assure that you receive fair compensation.
If you are involved in a motor vehicle accident, regardless of fault, it is required that you contact your own insurance company within 7 days to apply for Accident Benefits. There are several different benefits for which you may qualify. Do not assume that your insurance company will ensure that you receive all benefits to which you may be entitled. Further, your insurer may cut off such benefits pre-maturely. Unfortunately, despite the fact that this is “your” insurance company, once you are involved in an motor vehicle accident, your company also becomes an adversary. Graeme Fraser will act for you in aggressive pursuit of all accident benefits to which you are entitled.
