Broken bone and soft tissue injuries

CONTACT US FOR INFORMATION

Following a motor vehicle accident or a slip and fall, a broken bone or soft tissue injury can significantly affect your ability to live your day-to-day life. While most people experience timely and complete recovery, others suffer long-term effects of the injury and struggle to find appropriate support and treatment. The lawyers at Mann Lawyers are advocates for clients who have suffered serious or catastrophic injuries to receive the medical and financial support that is an indispensable part of their recovery.

Creating the environment for transition

With any severe injury, a discharge plan needs to be prepared prior to release from hospital or other treatment facility. The injured person’s family and support team will have to prepare for his or her arrival, specifically by equipping both home and vehicle with appropriate supportive devices. In the case of broken bones and soft tissue injuries, the time spent in hospital can be quite short. Since families have to act quickly, the immediate assistance of a lawyer can be invaluable to ensure that the necessary supports for the injured person are in place.

The recovery following broken bone or soft tissue injuries can occur over a period of weeks, months or even years. Some individuals, however, will never recover fully. The onset of chronic pain can be a debilitating result from such an injury. As legal counsel, our role is to ensure that you receive proper assessment, treatment and compensation for your on-going symptoms and limitations, so you have access to the support you need.

The lawyers at Mann Lawyers represent those who have suffered dislocated vertebrae, fractures, whiplash, and other back and neck injuries as a result of motor vehicle accidents, slip-and-fall accidents and other kinds of trauma. As experienced personal injury lawyers working out of an established and respected Ottawa law firm, we are able to inform you of your legal rights. We are advocates for your cause.

Frequently Asked Questions

What makes Mann Lawyers an ideal choice for these particular cases?

Mann Lawyers has helped hundreds of individuals in the National Capital Region and beyond to secure appropriate restitution for the hardship they and their loved ones have endured due to the negligence of others.   Along with broken bones and soft tissue injuries, we have also represented those with dislocated vertebrae, fractures, whiplash, serious back injuries, and other forms of trauma. Our 80-plus years of collective legal experience, along with a firm commitment to building a strong case, is often a winning combination for clients.

Should I document my treatment and expenses?

Absolutely. Recovering from broken bone and soft tissue injuries can be time-consuming and costly. Therefore, it is imperative that you log expenses – both in terms of time, emotional and physical toll and financial – during discharge and further treatment. This will help us build your case with compelling evidence of the hardship you and your loved ones endured during this period.

What sort of evidence can I use?

Along with payment receipts, we also recommend collecting witness statements from those around at the time of the accident if it is safe or reasonable to do so. Additionally, any forms of contact with the negligent party should be preserved – for instance these can include text messages, social media interactions, emails, and voicemails. Medical records, of course, would help to verify your condition before and after the accident.

What areas does Mann Lawyers serve?

The Mann Lawyers team has offices in both Ottawa and Perth. Residents of the National Capital Region as well as surrounding areas and Nunavut are in good hands with our personal injury team. We also offer flexible meeting locations and meeting times including on weeknights and weekends. This enables our clients to make any progress on refining their cases faster and more convenient.

How can I tell if I have a good case?

We are asked this question a lot, and the answer remains the same: There is no clear-cut answer. Personal injury law is complex and requires meticulous attention to detail to understand its finer aspects. Having a good case depends on obtaining relevant, legally admissible evidence in addition to expert preparation. This can influence the amount of the settlement owed to you as well as your chances of obtaining it.

  • A couple of years ago my life changed as a result of a slip and fall.  I sustained some serious side effects that have continued to negatively affect my quality of life.  As a lay person, suffering with a concussion, it can be very daunting to navigate the legal system.  Thankfully, I was advised to seek out Mann Lawyers and specifically you (Karine Devost), as my legal counsel.  That was probably the best advice I have ever received.  Karine, you are intelligent, empathetic and you really "listen".  You and your team's professionalism and commitment for a fair settlement went far beyond my expectations.   I want to thank you so very much for your kindness and your dedication.  I will be forever grateful to you for making my life better.  It is because of you that I received a fair and reasonable settlement without going to court.

  • After having a serious motorcycle accident in 2015, I was comfortable having Mann Lawyers deal with my legal matters.  My lawyer, Ted Masters, kept my wife and me informed concerning the legal steps as well as getting help that was required for my recovery. I appreciated the fact that Ted was able to explain things in a down to earth way.  He was always available when needed and I would highly recommend him and Mann Lawyers.

  • I was represented by Mann Lawyers in a disability related case. Ted Masters built a strong argument based on my disability of Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. Ted has a lot of experience and strategies to advocate on behalf of his clients. As a result, we were successful. Ted’s approach with me was always reassuring, logical, humane and respectful of  my personal situation. I really appreciated that he could be reached easily at all times.

  • Mr. Cantor helped me settle both my Accident Benefits and Torts claims. Throughout the process he was always my strongest advocate and fought for me even when I was not strong enough to fight for myself. Mr. Cantor, and his Legal Assistant Julie were always there for questions or support. He was able to put together a team that helped me get back to work and normal functions of everyday life post-accident. I was very satisfied with my final compensation and highly recommend Mr. Cantor for his professional, supportive and compassionate services.

  • I was referred to Kevin Cantor, from Mann Lawyers, after the death of my brother in 2016. After explaining what had happened, Kevin agreed that we had grounds for a medical malpractice suit. Kevin was excellent, explaining what would happen if we went ahead with the suit and what to expect from the defendants lawyers. Kevin was always prepared for court and I never lost confidence in his ability to help me when I needed it the most. Kevin and his secretary Julie both did an awesome job. This was a long process and as the case progressed, Kevin showed complete professionalism, and caring. Kevin was successful and I was awarded a sizable settlement. I would highly recommend Kevin to anyone facing the challenge of losing a loved one due to malpractice and negligence.
