Disability Insurance Claims

Broken Bone And Soft Tissue Injuries

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.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
