4 Reasons To Hire A Personal Injury Lawyer

When you’re hurt on the job, there are so many things to worry about that putting together a coherent argument to ensure your compensation can often take a backseat. Think about it: you’ve got your health and recovery to think about, your family and a plethora of other logistical matters. In most situations, workers will file a report with the WSIB and hope that they receive compensation, but hope and luck shouldn’t factor in; there’s a precise science to how much money should be allotted for your trauma and recovery, and it’s this science that our experts at Goodman Elbassiouni LLP are well versed in.

Talking to a Goodman Elbassiouni LLP lawyer is never a bad idea when you’ve suffered an injury at work, since the consultation is free anyway. Our lawyers and paralegals have seen so many cases that we will most definitely have some sound advice to put your mind at ease, no matter what your situation. That said, if you’re nervous to talk to a lawyer, allow us to propose four further reasons that might motivate you:

  1. WSIB Expertise – Many of the skilled professionals on our staff have direct experience working with the Ontario Work Safety & Insurance Board (WSIB), meaning that they know the ins and outs of the claims and appeals The subtleties of the WSIB are difficult enough to understand for a person who is in good health, making sense of WSIB policies while you’re stressed and on the mend is going to be frustrating and difficult: let us help guide you through it.
  2. Your Employer May Not Be On Your Side – While we like to think that our bosses and managers are our buddies, the truth is that when push comes to shove, efficiency and profitability are what most are concerned with. We’re not trying to vilify all bosses, but we’ve seen a lot of instances where companies deny culpability to protect themselves. Thus, having a third party involved with your best interests in mind can tip the scales towards what’s fair.
  3. Our Professionals Will Help with the Details – The most important thing in filing or appealing a claim is that the information you’re submitting is clear and organized. Passions can flare in the wake of an injury and you’ll want someone clear headed by your side to help you convey and organize the pertinent information regarding the nature of your injury and what the circumstances were. Another resource you can refer to are these helpful FAQs about work related injuries posted on our website for everyone to see.
  4. Our Lawyers Get Results – The final reason that you should seek out a personal injury lawyer is painfully simple: they get results. Goodman Elbassiouni LLP’s online reviews and testimonials speak for themselves, and they speak loudly. Trusting your settlement to luck and the overburdened WSIB is never a good idea – there’s too much at stake. A solid settlement gives you the opportunity to recover in peace so you can get back to work and resume your normal life. Having a lawyer help you through the process makes everything less stressful and produces results. Call us if you are hurt on the job and take advantage of the free consultation services that we offer, you won’t regret it!
