Brampton Car Accident Lawyers: What To Do Following An Accident

We Provide Advice, Assistance, Advocacy 

Brampton personal injury lawyers Singh Barristers regularly represent clients who have been injured in car accidents. Such victims may have sustained injuries as drivers, co-passengers, pedestrians, bicyclists, motor-cyclists or other road users. 

Accidents are traumatic events and whatever the nature and extent of injury, they can have an impact on the injured victims and their family-members. 

Dealing with the loss of income/wages or earning capacity and the high medical and rehabilitation expenses puts a severe strain on finances. Additionally, all accidents, whether minor or major result in some kind of emotional trauma. The pain and suffering that victims undergo may also cause severe psychological stress. 

If you or a loved one is injured in a car accident, contact the nearest personal injury lawyer in Brampton without delay. You may be entitled to compensation. 

Issues and Challenges 

Most accident victims assume that their insurance coverage will be sufficient to meet their present and future expenses. They’re also entitled to statutory benefits in Ontario, regardless of fault. These are available to co-passengers and pedestrians as well. They’re payable by your own insurers and don’t affect your insurance rates. 

However, in reality, there are several complex legal, medical and insurance issues involved in receiving proper compensation. 

In most cases, there are statute of limitations deadlines that must be followed. Otherwise you could miss the opportunity to file a suit. 

Insurance companies who make the settlement payouts often act in bad faith. They may contest your claim on various technical grounds, or deny/dismiss it. They may use delaying tactics or pressurize you to accept a swift but meager settlement. 

Our experienced Brampton car accident lawyer can ensure that your rights and entitlements are safeguarded.
