Burns and Scars
Recovering from a severe burn is a long and difficult process. Even after the wounds have healed, the evidence of the burn may remain in the form of scars. The emotional impact of a serious burn can be devastating.
If you have suffered a burn because of the negligence of another person you can bring a claim for compensation against the at fault party. If you have been injured in a motor vehicle collision, you will have access to accident benefits to cover the cost of medical-rehabilitation expenses, attendant care and income replacement.
There are many law firms that advertise they can help following a serious accident who have limited or no trial experience. At Oatley Vigmond our lawyers have taken many cases, including serious burn cases, to trial. Our lawyers are commonly asked to teach other lawyers about trial techniques in programs organized by organizations like the Law Society of Upper Canada, the Advocates Society and the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association. Many of our lawyers are Certified Litigation Specialists, a designation that is only given to lawyers who have demonstrated their experience in the Courtroom.
We draw on our experience at trial to know how to investigate a claim and put a case together that will generate the largest amount of compensation possible. Because we only represent seriously injured people, we also know that addressing the immediate impacts of the injury is crucial. We take an active role in ensuring that your immediate needs are met and that you are receiving the best care possible funded through an insurance company.
Our accident benefits specialists are former insurance adjusters which gives them a unique perspective and advantage of how to manage an accident benefits claim through the insurance company. Our accident benefits specialists work with a specialized team of rehabilitation professionals to assist with recovery and to ensure a smooth transition from hospital to home.
Over the course of a lawsuit we develop a special relationship with our clients; many of which have been involved in an accident that has resulted in a severe burn or scar. We encourage you to listen to what our clients say about our lawyers, accident benefits specialists and the Oatley Vigmond approach.
