Personal Injury Claims

There are other types of personal injury claims which do not arise from a motor vehicle collision, such as a slip-and-fall or a trip-and-fall.

Operators of places like retail stores, hotels, theatres, and parking lots, and even private landowners, owe a duty to visitors to maintain their lands and premises in a reasonably safe condition. For example, a grocery store must keep the floor of the store reasonably dry and clean, and a gas station must keep the area around the gas pumps reasonably clear of ice and snow. If they fail to fulfil these duties and you are hurt as a result, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses.

Andrew handles the personal injury claims arising from these situations. Often there is an insurance company working behind the scenes to defend against your claim, and it is helpful for you to have legal help when dealing with the insurance company.

Evaluating Your Personal Injury Claim

The earlier you speak to Andrew about your case, the better your chances may be of bringing it to a successful conclusion. Andrew provides a free initial consultation to people who have personal injury claims. During that meeting, Andrew will:

  • Go over the details of the incident;
  • Discuss your injuries and your current medical treatment;
  • Explain your rights and responsibilities during the claim process; and
  • Help you make an informed decision on whether you should pursue a claim.

Find out what to do next by calling 1.877.964.5544. Andrew can help you receive the compensation you need for your pain and suffering, lost wages, and the costs of medical treatment.

When Andrew acts on a contingency fee agreement (percentage agreement), you do not pay anything until your case is over. During the case Andrew carries the costs to have you examined by expert medical witnesses, the costs of obtaining medical reports and records, and the other necessary costs which arise in personal injury claims. Andrew will not make you borrow money to pay any of your legal expenses as your case proceeds.

Andrew knows that your living expenses still must be paid even though you cannot work due to your injuries. Insurance companies know that, too. If you need financial help while your claim is under way, Andrew can help you obtain a "litigation loan" so that you can cover your living expenses. Then you can try to settle your claim when it's time to do so, instead of being forced to settle your claim too early because you're desperate for money.
