Benefits of Hiring a Lawyer for Processing Tort Claim

Tort claims are also known as lawsuits and allow injured victims to sue partial or full at-fault drivers for damages. Such claims are way more complicated than placing an application for Accidental Benefits. Therefore, it is essential for you to hire a professional experienced lawyer in order to process such a claim successfully.

Fast Action Demand:-

In case of a tort claim, the injured victim must act very fast once the accident occurs. According to insurance laws, the person needs to notify his insurance company soon after, approximately within 7 days after the accident occurs. Moreover, the victim is required to file the Application for Accident Benefits within 30 days of receiving this application. This is an absolute must as the victim will not be able to file tort claim without filing the application for Accidental Benefits first. The victim must ensure that he meets the Accidental Benefits deadline so that he can qualify for a lawsuit.

Tort Claim- Compensation:-

There are several victims who pursue lawsuits or tort claims so that they can address expenses that are above and beyond the standard Accident Benefits coverage. Here are a few potential damages that are included in a tort claim:

Lost Income:-

Accident Benefits can provide an amount of up to $400 per week in order to address the victim’s lost wages for a time period. A good lawyer can help you, through a tort claim, to recover from 70% (of past lost income) to 100% (of future loss of income). Please note that as a victim you cannot claim lost wages that accumulates in the initial 7 days post accident.

Pain and Suffering:-

Those victims that meet statutory threshold are likely to be eligible for ‘additional’ compensation with regard to pain and suffering in case of motor vehicle accidents. Such compensation is only available in cases where accidents result in permanent serious impairment to essential bodily function (like mental or physical impairment) or in permanent serious disfigurement or death. With professional guidance from an injury lawyer you can build a strong case and provide evidence in support of assertion for pain and suffering. The lawyer will also explain to you how much compensation can be available to you for such damages. Remember that Accidental Benefits do not include pain and suffering damages.

It is highly recommended that in case of accidents you hire a good personal injury lawyer to help assess the potential value of your claim after he has conducted a proper case evaluation. Call us to find out more about the benefits of hiring tort claims lawyers in Toronto.
