Personal Injury Lawyer Serving Vaughan, Richmond Hill, Markham, York Region Discusses What Can Be Achieved With a Personal Injury Claim
Following a serious injury, you or a loved one may be faced with loss of income and mounting expenses. Serious injuries often impact on a person's ability to earn a living. This can be short-term, or long-term where more serious injuries are concerned. In addition to the loss of income, an injured person may also be faced with expenses associated with items such as prescription costs, special therapy or mobility equipment, and rehabilitation expenses. An injury may also impact upon a person's ability to maintain their home and perform domestic tasks such as housekeeping, lawn and garden care, and snow shovelling in the winter. As a result, you may be faced with the financial burden of hiring others to do what you previously did for yourself.
With a personal injury claim, you can pursue compensation for the financial losses and expenses that result from a serious injury. Most often, the at-fault party has insurance to cover such expenses.
