If you were injured in a car accident in Saskatchewan with a Saskatchewan driver then you are most likely covered under Saskatchewan’s “no fault” statute and will be able to recover from your own insurance company without incident.
What can I expect from a personal injury settlement?
Personal injury settlements cover all of the medical bills incurred from your injury. This includes the initial trauma bills as well as the ongoing care that Medicare might not cover.
The settlement will also cover your lost wages. If you are unable to work as a result of your accident, it will typically cover loss of earning capacity as well, which means you will receive money that will help you support yourself.
Finally, you will usually receive some amount for pain and suffering. In Saskatchewan pain and suffering awards can go as high as $370,000.
How do you win a personal injury settlement?
Work closely with your lawyer, start as early as possible, and do everything you can to gather evidence. You should also limit your contact with the insurance company who will be paying the claim. Let your lawyer handle it.
Assume everything you do and say may be used against you, and act accordingly. Stay off of social media and avoid talking about your case.
The Contributory Negligence Act means that your own behavior during the accident will be scrutinized. If you are found significantly negligent your award may be reduced by a great deal. Your lawyer will help you put your best foot forward when your actions come under fire.
