Dear Mr. Napier:
Now that we have reached the
official closing of our Personal
Injury Case I would like to thank
you and your staff. At the outset
when my husband and I were
still shaken up and emotionally
fragile, you displayed great
understanding and tact. We
both felt we were dealing with
a warm caring human being.
You and your staff guided us
through the necessary forms
and procedures, efficiently and
expertly. I particularly appre-
ciated being able to email Erin
or Ashley about my concerns
and get a response from them
by email or phone. They were
unfailingly helpful and consid-
erate. I am left with a strong
sense that yours is a happy-
positive office culture.
Last but not least, my husband
and I are very pleased with the
financial settlement you were
able to get for us. Thank-you.
5 Things To Know If You Are Injured
- There are strict time restrictions for commencing a lawsuit. These time restrictions are referred to as "limitation periods." You must act within the limitation period (ie. sue the appropriate party within this time restriction).
- You may permanently lose your opportunity to act on your claim, if you don't act within the limitation period. This is why we advise potential clients to contact our office as soon as possible, after an injury: so that we can advise you of your limitation period and other vital facts you probably should know.
- Dealing with insurance companies: While one of the important first steps you should take is to immediately contact your insurer, if you have insurance, we usually advise clients not to meet with the adjuster for the defendant insurance company dealing with the Section A part of the claim. For information about Section A and Section B, and answers to other FAQs click here
- There are important steps that should usually be taken immediately after being injured. (These help in developing your case. We advise you of them when you contact us.) Some are listed here.
- Your first job to get better. And that carries responsibilities. This means: it's important - to your health, and to your case, that you follow up on all treatment recommended, see your General Physician regularly to review your injuries, treatment etc. And also that you attend the treatments (physiotherapy, massage, chiropractic, etc.) you are referred to, and keep us informed with regular updates.
