Show Notes

  • Bicycle collision leads to serious injury: In a collision between a bicycle and a motor vehicle, serious injuries can occur. It is important to follow all the correct procedures after the accident occurs, including seeking appropriate treatment. All medical records and documentation should be sent to the insurance company in order to pursue adequate benefits. Accident benefits after a car accident can include income replacement, as well as rehabilitation benefits.
  • Rear-end car accident and benefits: Individuals unable to continue working due to an injury sustained in an accident should speak to their treating doctors. It is vital to provide an employer with all necessary accommodations and restrictions as a result of an injury. In the event of a rear-end collision, liability lies with the driver that instigated the accident. Individuals injured in a rear-end collision can pursue benefits from the at-fault driver’s insurance. Accident benefits as well as income replacement benefits should be accessible.
  • Multiple appeals attempt after a denial: Insurance companies often imply that a claimant is able to pursue an appeal after a denial of disability benefits. The appeals process was created by insurers and is not conducted by a third party. Often an appeal is conducted by the initial adjuster that denied the benefits. Appeals are rarely successful and it is far more beneficial to file a legal claim.
