When The Harm Is Permanent
Most of our clients at Chera Law Office are dealing with serious injury, pain and disruption in their lives. But for many of them their accident is something that will eventually be fully in the past.
For clients suffering from catastrophic injury, or families dealing with the aftermath of a fatal accident, that’s not the case.
For these clients, disability and loss are a permanent part of life. Our role is not to bring them back to where they were before the accident. Our role is to help them move forward as much as possible, and make sure that their futures hold the greatest quality of life possible.
We invite you to give us a call today to talk about your particular situation. Based in Mississauga, we serve clients throughout the GTA.
What Is A Catastrophic Injury?
In Ontario, a catastrophic injury is one that permanently prevents you from going back to your previous life. You may be unable to work or live as you did before, or care for your family in the same way. You may even need help with moving, eating and dressing. These injuries may include:
- Brain or spinal injury
- Serious psychiatric impairment
We will work to ensure that if your injury is catastrophic, you are not wrongly classified by your insurance company, especially in the time right after your accident.
Wrong classification may result in ineligibility for the benefits you will need, which may include extensive — and expensive — medical and rehabilitative care, as well as personal care.
Families Left Behind
Families dealing with a fatal motor vehicle or other accident are often in no position to deal with insurance companies, or insist on their rights. Our role is to speak for them during this difficult time.
Our lawyers will speak on your behalf for financial compensation for:
- Loss of income
- Loss of housekeeping and child care
- Loss of companionship and care
- Funeral expenses
- Expenses incurred in caring for your loved one before death
This financial recovery is not meant to put a price on your loved one. It is meant to acknowledge that your family is dealing with enough pain and loss, and the last thing you need is to also be worried about finances at this time.
