5 Reasons Why You Should Hire A Personal Injury Lawyer

No one ever wakes up in the morning thinking they’ll get injured that day. Unfortunately, sometimes the worst happens, and due to someone else’s negligence, your life has forever changed.

When this happens, all of your focus should be on healing and your recovery. Fortunately, in Canada we have universal healthcare that will help you with your injuries while in the hospital. But what happens once you’re out of the hospital? Who is going to pay for your various rehabilitation appointments and the time taken off work to heal? This is what you have to consider when you first get injured, and that’s why making a call to a personal injury lawyer as soon as you’re able to is always a good idea.

We deal with your insurance company for you. We will ensure you have supports waiting for you outside of the hospital, so you can focus on your recovery. Most importantly, we’ll advocate for you to make sure you get the compensation that you deserve.

Below we’ll go into detail on why hiring a personal injury lawyer is so crucial to your recovery and all the things they can offer you in addition to compensation for your injuries. Besides, our personal injury consultations are always free, so you really have nothing to lose by speaking with our team of expert lawyers.

1. Undivided Attention

When you’re dealing with a life-changing or altering injury, it can be very difficult to focus on much else. You shouldn’t have to. Your recovery should always be your top priority and having a good personal injury lawyer by your side can make that possible. At De Rose Lawyers, our clients are our absolute top priority. We will deal with the paperwork, claims, and everything else that needs to be handled for your case to proceed. This way, you can focus on your mental health, physical health and getting back to your regular life as best you can.

We don’t just see you as a number. We work to understand your immediate needs as well as your future needs to ensure the compensation you receive will be sufficient. We have a strong network of rehabilitation centres, doctors, specialists and more to help point you in the right direction for your best shot at a full recovery.

2. Experience Dealing With Insurance Companies

Almost everyone has at least one type of insurance, but that doesn’t mean that most people understand their insurance terms, their rights or the best way to deal with insurance companies. That’s okay. It’s a very complex and confusing process.

Our lawyers have extensive knowledge of the insurance system and will guide you through the entire claims process. We will advocate for your rights and ensure you’re being paid an appropriate amount for the losses you’ve incurred.

3. Financial Resources

Court and lawsuits are very expensive. Simply put, many individuals do not have the financial resources to go through a lengthy court battle, but insurance companies do. That’s where law firms come in handy. We have the resources required to battle your case for you. From the expertise, to the manpower, to the financial resources, we’re able to put the right support behind your case to get you the results you need. 

4. Injury Case Law Knowledge

There are many wonderful, intelligent and hardworking lawyers out there. When choosing a lawyer, choosing one that wins cases isn’t enough. It’s crucial the lawyer that you choose is an expert at personal injury law and has won cases similar to yours. You don’t want a lawyer that specializes in another field representing your personal injury lawsuit.

Courtrooms are very complex and confusing places to be for those who don’t practice law. Your personal injury lawyer should handle all elements of the litigation process for you. While it’s important that they keep you up-to-date with your case, they shouldn’t expect you to understand all of the elements and should constantly provide explanations and answer any questions you may have.

5. Getting You The Compensation You’re Owed

A good lawyer won’t only work to understand your accident and injuries. They’ll also be able to predict the level of care you’ll need in the short-term and the long-term to have a proper quality of life. Realistically, this means you need access to the compensation that you deserve. We will work tirelessly to get that for you.

To take the pressure off finances in the meantime, while your court case is going on, we don’t charge anything. We work on a contingency fee, which means we don’t get paid until you do. We don’t want to add any extra burden on you in your time of need, and don’t expect any payment until we’ve successfully won your case for you. If we don’t win, you don’t pay. It’s that simple.

Here’s What We Can Do For You:

  • Provide you with accurate and compassionate legal advice
  • Help you understand your rights, options and possible outcomes for your case ahead of time
  • Fill out all necessary forms and documentation necessary for your case
  • Take care of all phone calls and emails that pertain to the case
  • Liaise between your insurance company and other necessary contacts
  • Advocate on your behalf during negotiations and the court case, should it proceed to court
  • Build the strongest possible case using our extensive list of connections
  • And more!

Why You Should Hire De Rose

The path to compensation can be long and complex. For example, a lawsuit must be brought in Ontario within two years of the date of the accident. The statutory accident benefit care insurer is to be notified within 7 days of the date of the accident. Limitation dates are exceptionally complicated.

In addition, the legal process is exceptionally complicated. It’s important that your lawyer has the experience and the financial resources to make sure that you and your family’s legal rights and remedies are protected.

Our team takes immense pride in advocating for the rights and remedies of those who have been injured. We will work tirelessly to get you the care and compensation that you deserve. With over 40 years of experience, De Rose Lawyers will guide you through the complex legal, medical, and insurance issues, allowing you to focus on your rehabilitation and recovery.
