Motor Vehicle Accident
If you have been involved in a car accident as a result of some one else’s carelessness, your job and family responsibilities may have to take a back seat to your injuries, medical appointments, and insurance forms.
To maximize your recovery it is critical that you consult a lawyer following a major accident.
There are a number of legal issues that must be addressed, and the earlier the better!
Long Term Disability
Many employers offer Long-Term Disability Benefits (LTD) as part of the group benefits you are entitled to. These are benefits to provide income while you are unable to work for an unspecified period of time due to your illness or injury.
If your application for long-term disability benefits has been denied, or your benefits have been terminated, it can become frustrating. It is always important to understand your rights and options with respect to a denial of benefits and to know how you can pursue a court action against your insurer.
Long-term disability policies, as all insurance policies, can be complex and contain many provisions and terms that may be confusing or unclear. At Wissenz Law we help you understand your insurance policy and benefits so we can obtain the most positive results for you.
When property owners are negligent, serious injuries can occur.
Hazards may pose a risk of serious injury, so property owners have the responsibility to maintain a safe and clean environment. Slip and fall injuries can occur on Municipal properties, publicly owned premises, parking lots, stores and on private properties.
Missing Limitation and Notice Periods may mean recovery is denied, so early consultation with Wissenz Law may be the difference between a shut-out and full compensation.
A wrongful death can cripple family members emotionally, financially and psychologically. When a family member dies as a result of accident or malpractice, the grief and pain suffered by family members is intensified by anger and frustration.
Rebecca Wissenz of Wissenz Law has represented family members who have experienced the nightmare of an unexpected and unintended death of a loved one for over two decades. At such a difficult time, you need a lawyer who is sensitive, caring and experienced. You need a lawyer whom you can trust, so that you and your family can begin the journey of recovery.
Estates, Wills & Powers of Attorney
These papers are designed to protect you and your loved ones when tragedy strikes.
They are critical documents to have prepared before it is too late. Wills determine how your estate is dealt with after you pass away, while Powers of Attorney determine how your financial, property, and personal care issues will be dealt with during your lifetime.
Although you may never need to rely on a Power of Attorney, they’re vital to have in case you lose the ability to make decisions. It is of the utmost importance to think now of your family and of yourself, and have your Will and Powers of Attorney drafted earlier on in life.
Property transactions can be stressful, so finding the right lawyer to oversee the process is a must.
Whether you are buying a house, renting out your condominium or selling your cottage, let Wissenz Law take care of the legal work.
