Knowing your rights after an accident or a dispute is extremely important. Moving on with your life is the next step. Part of moving on often means finding the best legal representation available so that you and your family can obtain the best possible compensation and necessary treatment and rehabilitation.
Svet Ivanov has been prosecuting and defending serious personal injury actions since 2005. We are not a high-volume personal injury firm where a client rarely speaks with a lawyer and all communications are handled by secretaries, clerks and paralegals. This is often exploited by insurance companies at important dates in the litigation process such as discovery and mediation. All personal injury firms operate on the basis that the client does not pay until the case settles but we do not believe that clients’ interests are well served in a conveyor-belt practice. Any lawyer can win million-dollar judgments; all it takes is for them to lose multimillion-dollar cases. What has “worked” for neighbours or friends may not always have been the best possible legal resolution. Always seek a second opinion.
We believe that while there are many similarities in the type of injuries in terms of medical terms, the effect of these injuries on individuals and their families are unique. This is why we believe it is extremely important for us to understand not only our clients’ injuries but how their lives have been changed by those injuries.
We believe that many types of injuries require specific expertise that can not be always handled by one lawyer or one firm. This is why we have developed relationships with many different leading personal injury lawyers. We will refer you to the most appropriate specialists. Your compensation will not be affected. On the contrary, you will have gained another advocate on your and your family’s behalf. We care.
If you are injured in a vehicle accident (car, motorcycle, snowmobile, or an ATV) you are most likely entitled to accident benefits. Do not worry whether you are “at fault” for the accident. You have 7 days to notify your auto insurer of your intention to apply for accident benefits. Accident benefits are not often enough to compensate you for the extent of the injuries. If that is the case, you have the right to sue other parties responsible for the accident. We will help you identify all sources of compensation available. We will develop and explain the best strategy for your recovery and compensation.
Slips and Falls
The law states that an occupier of premises owes a duty to take such care as in all the circumstances of the case is reasonable to see that persons entering on the premises, and the property brought on the premises by those persons are reasonably safe while on the premises. There is no automatic right to any benefits unless you or your family have separate contract of insurance. A lawsuit must be commenced against all responsible parties. Usually a thorough investigation is required. We urge clients who have suffered injury through slips and falls to contact a lawyer immediately and insist on a through investigation and a gathering of all facts.
