How a Personal Injury Attorney Can Maximize Your Compensation

No one wants to get hurt in an accident, but everyone who is hurt in an accident wants—and deserves—full and fair compensation for their injuries.  

Some accident victims choose to handle their own personal injury claim without a lawyer. Others believe they don’t really need to hire a lawyer because the insurance company is involved; they mistakenly assume the insurer will take care of everything and pay them what they deserve. Nothing could be further from the truth. The reality is that personal injury claims are usually hard-fought, and it’s very difficult for the average person to know what amount of compensation is fair.

Working with an experienced personal injury attorney can reduce stress, boost peace of mind, and maximize compensation. Read on to learn why accident victims who have legal representation typically receive higher compensation than those who handle their personal injury claim on their own. If you or  a loved one has been injured as a result of someone else’s fault or negligence and want to know if you have a case, we welcome you to get in touch with a Sault Ste. Marie personal injury lawyer at our firm for a free consultation

Maximize Your Compensation By Working With A Personal Injury Lawyer  

Sault Ste. Marie and Algoma District residents who’ve been injured in an accident rely on the team at Feifel Gualazzi to maximize their personal injury compensation, and for good reason. We’ve represented thousands of personal injury victims and numerous families in wrongful death claims. Here are some of the ways we maximize personal injury compensation for our clients.  

We have an assertive team that will work tirelessly for you, not the insurance companies  

Insurance adjusters and claims examiners may seem friendly and helpful—especially early in the claims process—but make no mistake: their goal is to close your claim as quickly as possible, for as little money as possible. All insurance adjusters and claims examiners work for the insurance company, and the insurance company is in the business of making money. You’re not on a level playing field with the insurance company, and the claims examiner and insurance adjuster are not on your side.  

Hiring a Sault St. Marie personal injury lawyer from our firm can help level the playing field. We have the experience and training to stand up to insurance companies and their lawyers and fight for what is fair. We know the tricks and tactics the insurance companies use to try to pay out less money. Another way we help? Insurance companies aren’t usually forthcoming about all the accident benefits or types of damages available to you.

Our personal injury lawyers maximize your compensation by pursuing all possible types of damages and all benefits you are entitled to receive.   

We provide an assessment of what your claim is worth 

If you don’t know what your claim is worth, how can you know if a settlement offer is fair? You may accept a settlement from the insurance company that is well below what you’re actually entitled to receive. An accurate assessment of your claim’s worth is vital to ensuring you don’t leave money on the table. Personal injury lawyers draw on their expertise and knowledge of similar cases to evaluate both economic and non-economic losses. We can assess the details of your case and provide you with a comprehensive analysis of your damages claim, including medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, and pain and suffering.   

We know how to investigate, gather evidence, and connect you with resources 

To get compensation, you have the burden of proving your claim. You must prove fault, causation, the nature and extent of the injuries and losses that were caused by the accident, and that you took all reasonable steps to recover from your injuries. That burden can be a heavy one, especially if fault for the accident is disputed or the insurance company says your injuries weren’t caused by the accident.  

Experienced personal injury lawyers know what is needed to win a case. We can conduct investigations to gather evidence and interview crucial witnesses to strengthen your claim. We also work alongside doctors, medical experts, and other outside experts to build a strong case so you get maximum compensation. And because we are based in Northern Ontario, we have a network of local resources to draw upon to help you recover—both physically and financially.  

We are fearless advocates inside and outside of the courtroom  

Our #1 goal is to maximize the compensation you receive. Our focus is on early resolution and settlement, and we will argue strenuously on your behalf to obtain full and fair settlement of your claim outside of the courts. That being said, if the insurance company is being unreasonable, our lawyers will take your case to trial so you get the compensation you deserve. Our personal injury lawyers have extensive trial experience and have each been instrumental in winning landmark precedent-setting decisions advancing the rights of accident victims.
