Frequently Asked Questions For Our Ontario Personal Injury Attorneys

If you were injured due to the fault of another party, you may still be entitled to compensation for other damages such as pain and suffering, lost wages, and other related expenses.

You will want to inform your insurance company of the accident, after that you will want your attorney to speak to your insurance company. You should be cautious when speaking with the at-fault party’s insurance company, as their goal is to protect their own interests and may try to get you to say things that could damage your case. You should ask your lawyer to speak to the insurance companies on your behalf.

In California, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim is generally two years from the date of the accident.

You are entitled to a copy of the settlement check. You will just need to contact your attorney and ask for one.

Your attorney is obligated to obtain your consent before accepting any settlement offer.

In general, settlement proceeds for personal injury claims in California are not subject to federal income tax. However, there may be exceptions depending on the specific circumstances of your case, such as if you received compensation for lost wages or other taxable income.

If multiple parties were negligent and contributed to your accident, you may be able to file a claim against each of them. This is known as comparative negligence or comparative fault. In California, a plaintiff can recover damages even if they are found to be partially at fault for the accident. However, the amount of damages will be reduced by the percentage of fault attributed to the plaintiff.

In California, minors cannot file lawsuits on their own, so a parent or legal guardian would need to bring the claim on their behalf.

In California, failure to wear a seatbelt can be used as evidence of comparative negligence. Comparative negligence means that each party may be assigned a percentage of fault for the accident based on their actions. If it is determined that not wearing a seatbelt contributed to your injuries, your compensation may be reduced by your percentage of fault.

Admissions of fault at the scene of the accident may be used as evidence in a personal injury case, but they are not necessarily conclusive. The other party may later recant their admission, or there may be other factors that contributed to the accident.
