What is Personal Injury Law?
 
Personal injury law refers to the laws that are in place to protect the rights of victims who are injured as a result of an accident. The most common type of case that personal injury lawyers help victims with are motor vehicle accidents, but other prominent types of accidents include slip and falls, product liability and host liability.
 
Sometimes accidents are unavoidable, but other times an accident happens as a result of someone else's negligence. In these cases, a Mississauga personal injury law firm will be able to help the victims protect their rights and seek compensation for any injuries sustained in the accident.
 
Personal injury lawyers in Ontario are legally permitted to do the following for clients:
  • Offer legal advice
  • File legal complaints
  • File insurance claims
  • Negotiate, mediate or litigate compensation settlements
Personal injury law is in place to ensure that the residents of Ontario have legal rights when they are the victim of an accident. A personal injury lawyer works to protect the victim's rights and secure compensation to the full extent of the laws.
 
There are deadlines in place that limit the amount of time from the date of the accident that a victim has to submit a claim for compensation. It is important to consult a reputable personal injury law firm as soon as possible after the date of the injury to ensure these deadlines are met.
 
Car Accidents
 
Ontario has unique motor vehicle laws in place to protect motorists. The province is a "no fault” jurisdiction. This means that regardless of who is at fault for a car accident, your own insurance company should automatically pay any costs incurred due to the accident (including treatments, lost wages and even housekeeping costs).
 
In the event that the accident is caused due to another driver's negligence, the law firm can help victims pursue additional legal action.
 
Uninsured drivers may also be able to recover compensation with proper legal help. Personal injury lawyers can apply for compensation from other sources such as the Uninsured Driver's Fund.
 
Slip and Fall Accidents
 
Property owners have a legal responsibility to ensure the safety of people entering the property. This includes store/business owners, city/municipal building owners as well as private property owners. The most common type of injury caused by a property owner's negligence is a slip and fall accident.
 
If you have been the victim of a slip and fall accident, you should be entitled to compensation. Contact a reputable personal injury law firm immediately after the accident takes place.
 
Disability Claims
 
Personal injury lawyers can also help people successfully file short or long term disability claims. It is estimated that 30% of all workers in Ontario will require these benefits at some point either due to an accident or illness. Personal injury lawyers have the skills and experience necessary to successfully submit initial claims and renegotiate claims that have been previously denied.
