The experienced attorneys at Diamond & Diamond have been working hard on behalf of injured victims for many years and make a dedicated effort to protect the rights of those who have been hurt and had their lives forever altered because of another party’s negligence.

What Does It Mean to Be Seriously Injured?

Not everyone who lives through an accident will face difficult future circumstances. Unfortunately, for those who are seriously injured, the pathway to returning to work or living life normally as they did prior to the accident could be nearly impossible.

As the seriously injured lawyers in Toronto at Diamond & Diamond know, the victim’s only opportunity to recover compensation might be through filing a personal injury claim.

If this applies to your situation, you need to find an experienced lawyer who is willing to give you the personalized attention necessary to bring your case to court. A serious injury is one that impacts your ability to live life as you did prior to the accident. These might also be referred to as catastrophic injuries.

A catastrophic injury is one that makes it difficult or impossible for you to return to work, comes with the loss of a limb or a permanent disability or is associated with severe scarring and disfigurement. Under Canada’s personal injury laws, any individual who has been seriously injured because of another party’s negligent actions or omissions could bring a personal injury lawsuit.

Types of Accidents That Lead to Personal Injuries

Serious injuries are associated with a broad range of kinds of personal injury accidents.

However, some of the most common incidents that prompt a victim to file a personal injury claim with the help of the dedicated lawyers at Diamond & Diamond include:

  • Vehicle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Slip and fall injuries

What Are Common Serious Injuries?

A person who has been hurt in a vehicle accident might have a variety of different injuries and medical conditions that require extensive treatment, rehabilitation or even surgery. For some of these patients, reaching maximum medical improvement does not even mean they are fully healed from their injuries. Instead, this is a term that medical doctors used to describe when the patient has reached the maximum amount of improvement that can be expected for their individual case.

Since this does not always mean that the patient is fully healed, this information must be taken into account when determining a settlement amount in a personal injury case.

Some injuries that can come with significant costs for the victim because of their catastrophic nature include concussions and traumatic brain injuries, head, neck, shoulder and spinal cord paralysis, broken bones, and permanent injuries that lead to disability. In all of these cases, a victim should have his or her rights evaluated and discuss the case directly with an experienced personal injury lawyer.

Roles Played by A Personal Injury Lawyer

A Toronto personal injury attorney will have experience working with cases involving brain injury claims or other types of catastrophic injuries.

This lawyer will sit down with the victim in an initial consultation and determine whether or not there are appropriate grounds to file a personal injury claim.

If it can be shown that another party was responsible for the injuries sustained by the victim, the lawyer uses this information to initiate a personal injury lawsuit.

Personal injury lawsuits are perhaps the only way for victims in seriously injured accidents to recover compensation like lost wages, past and future medical bills, and other damages related to their expenses from recovering from the accident.

As a victim, it is unlikely that you understand the true scope of your injury claim. You have enough to worry about with attending medical appointments and trying to stay on top of all your doctor’s recommendations.

For this reason, the knowledgeable Toronto personal injury lawyers at Diamond & Diamond can handle your claim for you and assist you with filing all of the necessary paperwork.

The personal injury lawyers at Diamond & Diamond also strive to keep you informed about the status of your case so that you can anticipate your next steps and be prepared to respond to a settlement offer if one comes forward. While many personal injury cases can be resolved outside of court in negotiations or mediation, this is not always the case.

Therefore, you need a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer who will take your case seriously and make sure that you are protected in full. Taking a settlement offer and signing a release too early could block you from being able to ever pursue compensation on that matter again.
