Ontario Car Accident Lawyer

The Law Offices of Tim D. Wright Has Experience Serving Motor Vehicle Accident Victims

Keep in mind that obtaining help from a competent and seasoned motor vehicle accident lawyer might be critical. This is particularly true after a severe injury. If you wait too long in pursuing your claims or fail to fully understand your damages, crucial evidence might disappear. You can lose valuable compensation that you need to pay for your recovery.

We understand that when you have major injuries, you can not thoroughly and immediately assess the source of the accident and collect information. It is even more difficult to deal with the insurance companies. Allow our Ontario motor vehicle accident lawyers at the Law Offices of Tim D. Wright shoulder that burden for you.

What Should I Do After an Automobile Accident?

  • Call the authorities and make a police report. Do not let the other driver talk you into skipping this crucial step. It can cause issues later.
  • Exchange information with the other motorist. Take good pictures of the other party's I.D. and insurance info. Some police departments will not make this information publicly available on the police report.
  • Note witness information. Independent witness testimony can be crucial to your case.
  • Take photos of the accident scene as well as the damage to your vehicle as well as the other cars.
  • Seek medical attention. If you have injuries, visit the emergency room or seek medical care right away. You may have sustained much more severe injuries than you realized. Additionally, a long gap between an accident and medical treatment can make it difficult for your attorney to prove that your injuries are related to the accident.
  • Call our Ontario car accident lawyers right away. The sooner you have a lawyer, the sooner they can begin protecting your legal rights. Additionally, call a lawyer before you speak with any car insurance company. They will often try to take a statement from you, which can be used against you later.

What Damages Can I Have After a Car Accident?

  • Medical expenses, like hospital visits, doctor appointments, physical therapy, ambulance fees, and so on.
  • Pain and suffering refers to the physical and psychological anguish for which an individual can seek compensation in a lawsuit.
  • Lost income from missing work after a major injury, one of the most financially damaging aspects of a motor vehicle accident.

What Are the Most Typical Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries?

There are a number of injuries that can result from auto accidents, such as:

  • Broken bone injury accidents-- When a fracture is more significant, it can need surgery to fix.
  • Back and neck injuries-- These are often soft tissue injuries that resolve with therapy. However, in some cases accident victims sustain herniated discs that may need injections or surgery.
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)-- Whether mild (like a concussion) or extreme, TBIs can require years of treatment. They may also result in brain death, vegetative states, comas, and also death.
  • Lacerations-- Sometimes accident victims suffer large cuts that need stitches or staples and often leave disfiguring scars.
  • Shoulder injuries, such as a torn rotator cuff or a torn labrum-- These injuries often require surgery.
  • Burn injuries-- This can result from fire, but it can also come from airbags. Our office has seen significant scarring from airbag injuries.
  • Fatality-- Tragically, hundreds of people die every year in Ontario area car accidents.

What Aspects Affect My Settlement?

Determining just how much compensation you should anticipate from your settlement can be difficult since the amount depends greatly on the facts of your case. A seasoned Ontario car accident attorney will calculate your economic as well as non-economic damages. They can also help you make the best decision on when to settle or take your case to court.

Your lawyer's job is to negotiate with the insurance providers on your behalf until they secure a top offer from the insurance provider. If that offer is fair, you settle. If not, your lawyer can file a lawsuit.

Factors that impact settlement value consist of:

  • The extent of your injuries.
  • The available insurance coverage. If the driver has little to no insurance, it's much more difficult to receive a high settlement from them. If the motorist has no or minimal insurance, the claim may have to rely on your own uninsured/underinsured driver coverage for compensation.
  • Whether responsibility is clear or contested. For instance, the other event might not challenge liability in a rear-end accident yet could in a red-light accident.
  • If your accident had more than one liable party (third-party claims).
  • If the at-fault party acted with gross negligence when operating their motor vehicle.
  • Your total medical costs and other losses, such as missed wages from work.
  • Your ability to return to work.
  • The change in your quality of life prior to and after your accident.
  • Your out-of-pocket expenses.
