How much is my Toronto personal injury worth?
This is a logical question our Toronto personal injury lawyers hear a lot when we meet with injury victims. That’s because the financial impact of a serious injury accident can add up fast. The bottom line is you should be compensated for all of your expenses. What you might not realize is just how many accident expenses that includes:
- Cost of all medical care, including future medical procedures, some of which might not be covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP).
- Vehicle repairs or the cost of buying a new car if it’s a total loss.
- Replacement income if you need time off from work to rest and recover.
- Lost future income if you cannot return to work due to a permanent disability.
Add all these expenses up and your Toronto personal injury claim can easily be worth thousands of dollars or a lot more money. And if you don’t demand the compensation you deserve, you could end up paying for some or all of these expenses out of your own pocket.
