If you have been involved in a car accident, it is important to follow the steps outlined in our prior article. Your safety is your primary concern and it is important to get to a safe place on the road and seek out any necessary medical treatment. However, it is also paramount for you to contact a personal injury lawyer immediately after the incident!

What to do if you have received a STD or LTD DenialSome clients may choose to wait before contacting legal representation, as they are understandably preoccupied with the traumatic experience of being involved in an accident. Others may delay in contacting a lawyer because they believe it is simply an insurance issue. These presumptions are wrong!

Contacting a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after an accident can help you in a number of ways.

First, having a legal opinion can help you navigate and deal with insurance adjusters. Often case in our experience we find that our clients’ insurance coverage is insufficient or lacking to deal with the extent of injuries and compensation they should be getting. Because an insurance company adjusters will contact you and take an official statement describing the accident and any injuries sustained, as a precaution, we always advise that you seek out a proper legal opinion before providing such statements.

Secondly, having a personal injury lawyer can help ensure that you are in a position to make the strongest case possible, should further compensation be merited or if a lawsuit needs to be commenced. We will help take care of the details of your case and advise you on what information and evidence may need to be collected. We will also keep a tight schedule with regard to deadlines and the legal statute of limitations (i.e.: when does your claim “expire”?), and can help you get your compensation faster than you would by yourself.

Thirdly, because you may be disoriented, shocked, and confused after the auto accident, contacting a lawyer can help you recollect your wits and make an informed decision on how best to proceed. We are also here to answer any questions and ease any doubts you may have. Just like how it is advisable to seek out a medical professional after an accident, even if on the face of things you seem to be unhurt, so too do we believe that it is in your best interests to seek our a legal opinion, because your rights are at risk and the amount of compensation and damages you may receive depends on it.

My wife & I had the pleasure of working with Alexander Lee and Ikbir Khongura. They were excellent in research and information, They both were on time and ready.. very professional and determined to get the best results for us. They worked very hard and made sure we as clients were comfortable, happy and well taken care of! Most importantly they are fighters, they made sure our best interest were put first and our needs were met. A lot of lawyers don't really care, but they made sure justice was served! They did an amazing job in taking care of us and will be recommending their services!

From the moment Grillo Barristers took on my case, until I was able to come to my desired settlement, they have been nothing but amazing, caring and professional. I had an amazing team working on my case, and couldn't believe how well and timely my file was handled. My lawyer Anthony Andreopoulos, with the tremendous help of Justine and Zachary, constantly kept me updated with every action that was taken on the file and made me feel at ease knowing my case was in good hands. I couldn't have asked for a better firm to handle my file, so thank you guys so much for everything, I appreciate it more than you know!

I worked with Rachelle Mitri and her team and I found the company in general and Rachelle in particular to be extremely professional, while being nice people to work with. Ms. Mitri kept me informed of my case. And guided me through an unfamiliar system with great diligence. I always felt valued and respected. Great Lawyers !

Where do I begin?? I am not usually one to leave reviews on services but this one is definitely an exception. From start to finish, I felt incredibly comfortable having my claim in Grillo's hands. I felt as though the team was in complete control and I could just sit back and receive updates when necessary. With the utmost confident I can say that Grillo Barristers is the best personal injury law firm in Toronto. The process was quick, cheap and stress free. I must especially thank Lauren Sivitilli. Having very limited knowledge of lawsuits, Lauren was able to perfectly break the processes down for me and educate me on my claim. She was quick to answer emails addressing any concerns and always kept me up to date. I will definitely be recommending Grillo Barristers services to my family, friends and coworkers. Amazing!
