Steps to Take After a Car Accident

Car accidents can be intense and frightening experiences. After a car accident, you may be in a state of shock that leaves you uncertain about what to do next. Learn more about the steps you need to take to secure your insurance, legal, and medical needs for claiming after a car accident.

Your first course of action immediately after an accident is to call the police. This is a must. The police are trained to assess the scene, control traffic, and keep you safe. Just as importantly, the police are trained to take statements and photos of the accident scene and make a determination on which driver is at fault. If you are hurt, you should also call the paramedics right away.

Even if you feel well after an accident, and certainly if you have injuries, you should visit a doctor. Make an appointment with your current doctor or visit the emergency room to receive the treatment you need. This visit can be an important first step in getting what you deserve from insurance companies, so make sure to make it a priority.

If a third party has caused severe injury to you, suing can ensure that you are compensated for medical bills, loss of income, or costs associated with training for a new type of work. If you do decide to sue, be prepared to provide your lawyer with evidence for your case and to potentially testify in court. Out of court settlements are also common. These involve negotiating a settlement sum as well as the terms and conditions.

There are often many forms of compensation you can seek after an accident including compensation for loss of income, Family Law Act claims, and any other injuries or losses you have sustained.

You may also be entitled to compensation for general damages of up to $360,000, including pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life. However, claiming after a car accident must typically meet a threshold in order to qualify for general damage compensation. A threshold means you have experienced serious and permanent physical, mental or psychological disfigurement or impairment. You should also be aware that your general damages compensation may be affected by specific legal deductibles under the Insurance Act.

Additionally, if you suffer a loss of income due to an accident, it can be legally recovered. The compensation may include any future income loss, or losses you incur because of reduced income or an inability to find work due to your injuries.

Another type of compensation available to you includes compensation for pecuniary losses that have resulted from your injury. These losses include current and future travel, housekeeping, care, and home maintenance costs. It is even possible that you can be compensated for medical expenses not covered by your own insurance policy or OHIP.

Finally, if your family members suffer because of your accident, they may claim compensation for any of the expenses they have paid due to your injuries, as well as compensation for a loss of companionship, care or guidance.

After an accident, don’t forget to follow these steps to ensure that you are properly compensated for your losses.

“Choosing the right lawyer is the most important thing to do after accident or insurance denial. It makes a difference in the quality and ability of the firm you hire. This translates to bigger and better settlements for our clients.”

My mom was involved in an accident impacting her daily life and ability to work. Dan Holland has worked with us during the duration of our case and has been helpful in fighting for her and supporting us, and organizing the things we needed. Our family is incredibly grateful of the outcome Dan was able to obtain for us. I would highly recommend him!

We are so happy that we had David and his team represent us. We couldn't have asked for a better team.

I'm so happy I chose David as my lawyer. I spoke to a few lawyers before finding David and I noticed majority of them spoke to me in a way that felt demeaning or that my case wasn't big enough or important enough to take. One phone call with David and my opinion on lawyers changed. He spoke to me as an equal and made me feel as if my case was definitely important and that I deserved to be fairly compensated. The whole process was wonderful. From dealing with David's law clerk Ingrid whom is an amazing and kind woman to his legal assistant Melissa whom is another amazing kind and talented young woman. I was so stressed about this case but from day 1 they helped ease that stress and always answered all my questions promptly and respectfully. I couldn't believe David got me to mediation within 6 months of being cut off my LTD and got me a settlement way beyond my expectations. I can't say enough good things about this law firm but I guarantee you that if you need a lawyer to fight for you David is your guy! . Believe me when I say this is the law firm for anyone dealing with personal injuries especially LTD denial claims. Thank you so much to David, Ingrid and Melissa you truly don't know how much I appreciate all you did for me and how this will help me get back on track with my life. Keep helping others you guys are doing amazing work! I wish you all the best!

I sustained a relatively painful injury, affecting me long term.I wouldn't otherwise had pursued it, as it involved a relatively large corporation, but felt it necessary to do so. However, many lawyers were daunted, with one, who actually referred me to HIMPRO.I was connected with Dan Holland, who reviewed the case, provided with me realistic expectations, sound advice and had a willingness to move forward and represent me.His calm and professional demeanor, brought me to a place of reassurance. His ease in addressing all facets of this process, clearly demonstrated a wealth of experience. There was never any hesitation, when being challenged, and felt my best interest was always in the forefront.This case has since been resolved, to my complete satisfaction.Without reservation, HIMPRO (and Dan Holland, in particular), would be the only firm I would recommend for these type of cases.
