Motor Vehicle Accidents
If you’ve been injured in an automobile accident as a driver, passenger, pedestrian, or cyclist, you will be required to notify your own automobile insurance company and file a claim, just as the person(s) at the other end of the collision would file a claim with their own insurance company. The basic no-fault insurance coverage entitles you to reimbursement for certain medical expenses and a limited amount of lost wages, among other insured losses. After determining fault, the two insurance companies will settle costs of the claim on their own, through subrogation.
If you were injured or a death resulted from a motor vehicle accident that you were not at fault for, then you may have a personal injury lawsuit for additional compensation beyond the basic accident benefits from your auto insurance policy. An injury lawyer in Hamilton can help you with this claim. A primary focus at KM Personal Injury Law is motor vehicle accident claims, especially in obtaining compensation to the full extent of your damages or losses, such as lost wages, loss of future income, future medical care costs and non-pecuniary damages (i.e., pain and suffering) less any deductions resulting from contributory negligence claims. Even if you have some liability in a motor vehicle accident, we believe that you should be compensated the losses you incurred.
Slip and Fall Accidents
If you’ve been injured after a slip and fall accident on private or public property as a result of someone else’s neglect, an injury lawyer in Hamilton at KM Law Office can help you achieve the compensation you deserve. For example, if you get hurt from falling in a parking lot or entrance way because the snow wasn’t cleared, then you may have a slip and fall claim against the owner of the premises even if the owner had a contract with a snow removal company. No accident benefits are available for medical expenses or lost wages in slip and fall claims, but these losses may be recovered as part of your personal injury tort claim.
Long-Term Disability Claims
It is unfortunately common to be denied a long-term disability (LTD) claim from the insurer of a LTD insurance policy taken out by your employer or you privately. If you are unable to work because you are disabled, then you may be able to get the LTD claim approved with the help of Karn Malhotra Law Office, personal injury lawyers in Hamilton. For nearly 25 years, Karn Malhotra has had much success on the forefront of helping disabled persons get the compensation they deserve.
