Accident victims don’t always get in touch with a lawyer right after they’ve been injured. Why?
Some think that they caused the accident, so they’re not entitled to any benefits. Others believe that insurance companies will handle everything right. Worst of all, many individuals will accept a settlement amount without knowing that it’s too low for their case.
This is where Wynperle comes in. Wynperle is a team of expert personal injury lawyers that can assist clients with a variety of legal matters, and we always find a solution.
Get Your Benefits No Matter What
Whether or not you caused a motor vehicle accident, we will investigate your case and help you to receive the benefits you need for your injuries.
Wynperle Law doesn’t focus on blaming individuals. Our priority is to see that justice is done and those that need support get it. Motor vehicle accidents happen in what can seem like a blink of an eye, so while you may think it was your fault, our investigation could unearth the true cause of the accident. Additionally, motor vehicle accidents often have multiple parties who are partially at fault, but they all deserve support.
Another example is where individuals on public property experience a slip-and-fall accident. Most people shrug it off and blame themselves for not being careful. However, the cause of the accident could have been, in actuality, the condition of the walkway or stairs. This would mean that the city is responsible for the accident.
Find Out What Compensation You Deserve
Your compensation depends on the severity of your injury and the losses incurred. There are several factors our lawyers look at, such as:
- Your inability to work
- Your physical inabilities
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death
It’s part of our job to ensure that your injury is properly categorized. Your case may be categorized one way when it should be classified differently in a compensation range that is significantly higher. Serious injuries can qualify for $1 million in medical benefits whereas a minor injury will qualify for benefits around $3,500. Serious injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Back and spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones
- Torn ligaments
Our personal injury lawyers in Guelph and Hamilton are experienced with personal injury law, so we can tell you what your compensation will be after reviewing your unique case.
Don’t Believe Everything Insurance Companies Say
Insurance companies can be bullies when it comes to getting compensation, and take advantage of every opportunity they get to limit their payouts. We can help you avoid this.
For example, without the right knowledge, many people make the mistake of sharing their medical information with their insurance company post-accident. Accident victims that provide their insurance representative with a statement can find it comes back to bite them later.
How? When they make a claim at some future date for an unrelated injury, the insurance representative will deny your claim, saying that your prior accident was a pre-existing condition.
When you have to work with an insurance company, it’s always best to contact a personal injury lawyer in Hamilton or Guelph who can defend you and knows when the insurance company is trying to pull a fast one. For example, they often offer accident victims a large one-time settlement when the victim should receive ongoing financial compensation.
Our clients come to us because we are experts who can assess the true value of their losses. A lawyer will be able to tell you whether or not the settlement offered to you is too low or just right.
Fight Application and Claim Denials
In the Ontario Insurance Act, the provincial government has laid out the basic accident benefits that any person injured in a motor vehicle accident—not just the driver—are allowed to receive. It is a mandatory practice for any collision that occurs within Canada or the United States.
However, insurance providers may deny your application or claim for these benefits. It could be because of non-compliance or their evaluation results. This is where we come in. Our team can review the findings to determine if the insurance provider has just cause or we will appeal your claim on your behalf.
