Personal Injury

Personal injury law is the primary focus of the McLellan, Brennan Law Firm. It is a fact of life that people in their day-to-day lives often become injured. The injured person is entitled to compensation when this injury happens through the fault of another. The most common injuries that end up being the subject of a claim arise through negligence, most typically against the insurer of the person at fault.

Some of these injuries are caused from:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Occupiers’ liability (e.g. a slip and fall, dangerously maintained premises, or allowing dangerous activities to take place on a premises)
  • Other negligence such as medical malpractice or other professional negligence
  • Sexual assault

Injuries may take many forms and may include:

  • Brain injury
  • Broken bones
  • Mental anguish
  • Nerve damage
  • Paralysis
  • Psychological damages
  • Whiplash

Our expertise in personal injury will help you determine if you have a claim, the extent of the claim, and the legal issues that have to be dealt with in collecting your losses. We will help you in dealing with the insurance company, who, if you do not seek representation, may attempt to settle your case for much less than your loss. Keep in mind that injuries can have a lasting effect on an individual’s enjoyment of life, ability to enjoy recreational activities, and work.

Also, people injured in motor vehicle accidents should bear in mind that the so called minor personal injury cap of $7,500 for pain and suffering may seldom apply. Even where it does apply, the injured person is often entitled to compensation for lost work, lost ability to work, lost housekeeping, valuable services and future care. Only your lawyer will look after your interests and advise you as to what kind of claim you have.

In every instance, the safest bet is for an insured person to seek legal advice instead of taking on the big insurance interests without any skill or training. Time and again, the rights of injured people can be decimated because they didn’t take the time to call a lawyer. Call the McLellan, Brennan lawyers at 1-902-436-9211 today.
