Car accidents and compensation for chronic pain.

Personal Injury Lawyers in Ottawa share a recent case we’ve settled.

Compensation for Chronic Pain

Accident Scenario:

Our client came to us and wasn’t sure if they had a case or not and wanted some information. Our client  was a 38-year-old woman from Gatineau, Quebec. One day, she was a driver in her car and was suddenly cut off by a vehicle that turned left in front of her.

Injuries Resulting From Accident: 

As a result of the accident, our client suffered very serious personal injuries including chronic neck and back pain, anxiety and psychological difficulties.  Our personal injury team knew that our client would require lots of supports put in place and maximum compensation to rebuild after this accident.

Compensation For Knee Fracture:

In the beginning the insurance company and our lawyers weren’t seeing eye to eye. We continued to get our client the supports , while we worked with the insurance company . In the end, our lawyers were able to get the insurance company to settle at a private settlement conference before prolonged litigation proceedings.  Our client received $ 185,000 from the tort action side of her personal injury lawsuit.  While this $185,000 will never erase the damage that has been done, it can help her adjust to a new life with rehabilitation, benefits and support.
