Mississauga's Most Trusted Personal Injury Lawyers
If you are dealing with life-altering injuries, the physical and emotional toll of your injuries is more than enough to deal with - you need someone whom you can trust to take care of earning you compensation.
Our team of Mississauga personal injury lawyers have been deemed Mississauga's Top Choice Personal Injury Law Firm 10 years in a row, because of the settlements we earn and our strong client relationships. If you have been injured, consulting with an experienced personal injury lawyer will help you understand what rights and options you have.
The most frequent accidents resulting in personal injury that occur in the Mississauga area are motor vehicle collisions and slip, trip and fall accidents. Motor vehicle collisions are not limited to car and truck accidents, but also include accidents involving pedestrians and cyclists which often result in more severe injury due to the vulnerability of the victims of such accidents. As well as these more common accidents, our staff at Kotak Law represent individuals who were injured by dog bites, product liability, unsafe premises and other circumstances that contributed to their accident.
There are many steps you can take to contribute to the success of your own case. One of the most important decisions you will make after an accident is selecting the right personal injury lawyer (the first is seeking immediate medical attention). The following are some of the most frequently asked questions that are answered by our staff at Kotak Law.
What are your contingency fees?
Are there any testimonials from past and current clients I can read?
Will the same lawyer handle my case from start to end?
Have you represented clients who have suffered similar injuries?
How long will my case take?
Will I be able to talk to my lawyer directly when I need to?
How long have you been handling personal injury cases?
These are important and valid questions that should be addressed in an initial consultation with your personal injury lawyer, as well as any other concerns that you might have. We believe that accident victims are best served when there is an open and supportive relationship, and complete transparency with their legal counsel. The rehabilitation period for serious injury following an accident is a stressful and difficult one, and it is the responsibility of your personal injury law team to assist you and your family throughout the claims process.
Many personal injury cases result from truck and car accidents. After hiring your Mississauga car accident lawyer, you can help with the successful resolution of your case if you provide key details and documents pertaining to your accident and injuries. These include: facts of the accident (including date, location, time, weather conditions, names of witnesses or others involved in the accident, etc); medical reports documenting your injuries and proposed treatment(s); receipts or records for expenses incurred due to your injuries; copies of documentation exchanged with insurance companies; and evidence for lost wages resulting from the accident.
A review of the incidence of motor vehicle accidents in the Mississauga area has identified situations and conditions under which accidents are more likely to occur. One of these is long weekends and holidays in which more people are engaged in partying, and for some individuals, careless behaviour associated with such activities. Mississauga police and Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) usually carry out special programs such as RIDE to curtail the higher incidence of collisions. At such times, law enforcement officers are on the look-out for distracted drivers, potentially impaired drivers, proper seatbelt use, speeding and any other signs of dangerous driving.
Police officers are the ones who see firsthand the horrific and catastrophic results of these acts of carelessness while driving and the pain that not just the victims but their families suffer as a result. By October of 2015, OPP already recorded over two hundred deaths for this year; over half of these were a direct result of distracted driving, impaired driving, speeding or failing to use seatbelts. All of these infractions are easily avoidable by simple steps (such as putting on a seat belt) and by adhering to Ontario laws that are essentially in place to save lives and prevent injury.
There are many benefits of hiring a personal injury lawyer when claiming for benefits from an insurance company. Negotiating on your own behalf with your insurer is not advisable as the goal of an insurer is foremost to maintain as much profit as they can on every single claim. Your welfare is not their first priority. Every year, there are fraudulent claims submitted to insurers and this unfortunately makes their vetting process even more stringent, which further damages the case for honest claims. Personal injury lawyers are highly experienced in negotiations with insurance companies; their understanding of your rights under the Insurance Act increases your chance of getting the full amount you deserve.
If you or someone you know has fallen victim to a negligent driver, property owner, or another careless act, contact one of the Mississauga personal injury lawyers at Kotak Law.
