Ashcroft Personal Injury Lawyer

Accidents can happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time. When the negligence or recklessness of another person causes our injuries, through little to no fault of our own, the law considers the accident a “personal injury,” and you may be entitled to file a lawsuit seeking compensation for your losses. Preszler Injury Lawyers serves over 1,500 residents in Ashcroft, B.C. with caring professionals experienced in personal injury matters.

Common causes of personal injuries include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents involving cars, trucks, SUVs, and motorcycles
  • Bicycle accidents and pedestrian mishaps
  • Slips, trips, and falls on public or private property
  • Dog attacks and other premises liability claims
  • Medical malpractice, missed/wrong diagnosis, and birth injuries
  • Wrongful death

Personal Injury Lawsuit Medical Issues

The strongest personal injury claims involve long-lasting disability or permanent injuries. If you have received a few cuts and bruises that are likely to heal within a few weeks without scarring, you may not be eligible for compensation above and beyond the insurance payout.

However, lawyers frequently file lawsuits for cases involving:

  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Chronic pain
  • Injury requiring surgery
  • Joint damage
  • Life-threatening illness
  • Nerve damage
  • Organ perforation
  • Paralysis
  • Scars
  • Torn soft tissue.

What To Do After An Accident

Get Help! Medical care is of paramount importance. Even if you “feel okay” after a car accident or a slip and fall in an icy parking lot, it is a good idea to get on record with a medical professional who can fully evaluate you. Sometimes potential injuries like whiplash or joint cartilage degradation can emerge, weeks or even months later, that can be traced back to a seemingly harmless accident. Be sure to attend all follow-up appointments.

Collect Evidence! Staying organized now will help you later, should you decide to file a lawsuit. Keep all your medical bills, doctor’s visit printouts, out-of-pocket receipts, missed days of work, your last paystub, and a log of noteworthy dates in one folder. It is helpful to keep a journal of your thoughts, feelings, and physical symptoms. If possible, immediately following the accident, obtain names and contact information for any eyewitnesses. Snap photographs of the accident site and any injuries if you can. Request a copy of the police accident report.

Quiet Down! Be careful about what you say to insurance providers or friends on social media. Frequently, insurers use claimant statements to reduce or deny compensation. Similarly, defence counsel may point to statements made by plaintiffs to paint them as unreliable witnesses or to ascribe some of the blame.

Speak to a Lawyer! Working with a personal injury lawyer directly following an accident not only informs you of your legal rights but also ensures you receive the best possible medical care. We frequently refer clients to renowned professionals, hospitals, and clinics, based on more than 60 years operating locally. Our investigative team can also provide helpful answers to your questions, as you grapple with “What happened?”
