Areas of Law Description
Bergel, Magence LLP offers legal representation on the following areas of practice:
- Motor Vehicle Accidents
If you’ve been injured in a motor vehicle accident, you are entitled to accident benefits regardless of who caused the accident. You can make a claim if you were a driver, passenger, pedestrian, cyclist or passenger on a bus or street car. You may also be entitled to sue for pain and suffering. You should know that your insurance company will not provide you with the information you need to maximize your benefits. Determining whether you have a case requires the expertise of a personal injury lawyer. There are strict time limits on how long you have to commence each part of your claim.
- Slip & Fall Injuries
Slip and fall injuries can be perilous – a broken step, ice, a debris-littered floor, or uneven pavement can lead to anything from a broken arm or leg to permanent injury resulting in partial or full paralysis. If you’ve been injured through slipping, tripping or falling on someone else’s property, you may be eligible to receive compensation. Whether the accident happened at work, at a neighbor’s house or at the grocery store, it’s important that you do not sign anything without knowing your rights.
- Paraplegic & Brain Injuries
Injury patients may be entitled to compensation to the extent that their injury was caused or contributed to by the negligent acts or omissions of others. In some instances, such as in the case of a brain injury, which is not visible, there are special legal challenges in obtaining proper compensation for the victim. Your lawyer must be able to present sophisticated medical and psychological evidence to prove that the injury has occurred and how it affects the patient. Be careful to find a firm that has adequate experience in serious injuries.
- Long Term Disability & Short Term Disability
Many people have access to short term and long term disability insurance through private insurance policies or group insurance policies (e.g. through their employers). The provisions of each policy are unique so the applicable policy should be carefully reviewed to determine the rights and obligations of the insurer and the insured. There are usually strict deadlines set out in the policy within which an insured must apply for disability insurance. There is usually a deadline set out in the policy written which an insured must commence a civil court action in the event that benefits are terminated or denied.
