When other people are neglectful, there are often serious repercussions for innocent bystanders. From irresponsible driving habits that cause accidents to ice on sidewalks, negligence can cause a great deal of undue harm to unsuspecting victims. When you are hurt because of another person’s actions, it should not fall on you to endure the additional financial consequences of the injury. Your medical costs, rehabilitation, and any other treatment you need for your recovery should be compensated by the party that hurt you.
We can reasonably expect this from liable parties because we all have an obligation to uphold the safety of those around us; when lapses in that responsibility cause another person harm, we should be ready to accept the consequences. Parties that are accused of being responsible for injuries dispute the extent of their liability and whether they are liable in the first place. Contentious issues are typically handled in the form of a lawsuit, which may or may not lead to a trial, depending on whether or not a settlement is reached beforehand.

Personal injury and tort law is a wide and diverse field. Essentially, when a person is injured as a result of another party’s negligence, they are able to potentially seek compensation for their injuries from that party. There are innumerable ways that these sorts of situations may manifest, but they all boil down to the failure of one party to uphold a reasonable level of safety for another.
In many injury situations, there is someone who failed to do something they should have done, and finding the responsible party is one of the first steps in filing a lawsuit. Other drivers are accountable for their actions when they hurt people on the road. Sidewalk owners are responsible for ensuring the sidewalks are safe to prevent slip and falls. Product manufacturers are liable for any defective or harmful products they release to the public. Doctors and hospitals are responsible for making sure they perform their duties at a reasonable standard of care, meaning they shouldn’t make injuries worse. Every case is unique, but determining liability is a key component of taking legal action and seeking compensation for an injury.
At Mazin & Associates, PC, our Toronto personal injury lawyers are well aware of the nuances of tort law and have a great deal of experience with these kinds of cases. We are determined to find the liable party and hold them accountable for hurting you. Our personal injury practice areas include, but are not limited to, the following:
Navigating the legal system can be complicated and confusing if you are not used to the way the system works. In the case of motor vehicle accidents, large insurance corporations will take advantage of this informational asymmetry in an effort to minimize making payments to the injured party. For this reason,you are likely to receive much less compensation if you try to represent yourself in your motor vehicle or other accident case. Our lawyers have the experience and resources to ensure you get the compensation you are owed. A personal injury lawyer will assist you with the requisite paperwork, correspond with the insurance company on your behalf, while at the same time ensuring that your rights are protected. We have an intimate knowledge of all of the benefits and compensation available to you, and we will fight for you until you get the compensation and justice you are owed.
For this reason, with a lawyer by your side, you are likely to receive a much better outcome than you would have received trying to take on your case alone. If you have been injured in an accident, it is important to seek legal counsel right away to ensure your case has the best possible outcome.
The short answer is no. Not only is negotiating with an insurance company by yourself complicated and confusing, but even after dealing with the insurance company, you are not likely to get the full compensation to which you are entitled. It is important to remember that insurance claim adjusters do not have your best interest in mind. Insurance claim adjusters make a profit by settling claims quickly and for as little as possible. While accepting an offer from the insurance company can help with immediate costs following a motor vehicle or other accident, you are likely entitled to much more compensation than they are willing to give you. Holding out for a better offer will be more beneficial for you in the long run, and you need an experienced lawyer by your side to fight against insurance companies to get the compensation you are owed. We can take care of the insurance negotiations while you work on recovering from your accident. We have experience with insurance claim adjusters' tactics and know exactly how to negotiate your claim to get you the compensation you deserve.
