An Ottawa scooter accident and compensation for soft issue injuries

Compensation for Soft Tissue Injury

We often have people call us and wonder whether or not they have “a case.” Thankfully not all accidents result in serious and permanent injuries.  We recently helped a man who was in a scooter accident.  His injuries were not permanent but were very real. Did he have a case and how much was his case worth? Our client was unsure of whether or not to start a lawsuit. He was told his injuries would heal and wasn’t sure if going through with a personal injury lawsuit was for him or not. He did the right thing by contacting us and we walked him through his options.  At the end of the day, he decided to start a lawsuit and hoped it would be a lawsuit that did not drag out too long. While every case is different, as all personal injuries and all individuals are different, there are often similarities that run throughout similar cases.

Accident Scenario:

Our client was on his scooter when he was rear-ended while stopped at a red light in Ottawa. He suffered scrapes, soft tissue bruising, a fractured right toe and an uncomplicated injury to his pelvis. He received physiotherapy treatments for approximately 6 months after which he was discharged.  He expressed his concerns about a prolonged litigation process and we were confident his case was straightforward enough, that our Ottawa personal injury lawyers could resolve it quickly, without any time in court. And we did.  Denis Alisic, one of our top Ottawa personal injury lawyers was able to bring our client’s personal injury case to a quick resolution and fulfill his wishes.

Injuries Resulting From A Scooter Accident:

As a result of this scooter accident in Ottawa, our client suffered a broken toe and uncomplicated injury to the pelvis, which thankfully healed well and quickly.

Compensation For Pelvic Injury:

After tough negotiations, we were able to get the insurance company to quickly settle without anyone having to go to court. Our accident lawyers were able to help our client get the support and services he needed throughout his recovery,  as well as $40,000 for any future needs, should they arise.
