    Join us as we break down the top three reasons why disability claims are often denied and steps you can take to improve your chances of a successful claim.

Learn why detailed, consistent medical documentation is essential and how to ensure you have the necessary evidence to back up your claim. Andrew and Colton will also discuss the importance of maintaining consistency in your statements and actions to avoid giving insurers a reason to deny your claim.


    Facing a denied claim can be frustrating, but don't lose hope. We hope this video will provide you with the knowledge and strategies to challenge a denial effectively. Contact us today if you believe your claim has been unfairly denied.

  • Countering Low Ball Settlement Offers On Personal Injury Claims

    Having a lawyer by your side during legal proceedings, especially when dealing with insurance companies, is crucial for protecting your rights and ensuring fair treatment. When faced with lowball offers from insurance companies, having legal representation becomes even more important.


    Insurance companies often aim to minimize payouts, offering settlements far below what may be fair compensation for your injuries or damages. An experienced personal injury lawyer can assess the true value of your claim based on various factors such as medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and future damages. They can then negotiate with the insurance company to secure a fair settlement that accurately reflects the extent of your losses.


    A lawyer will have the expertise to evaluate the true extent of your losses, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and future damages. They can work to secure a fair and just settlement that fully compensates you for your losses.


    If presented with a lowball offer from the insurance company, it's essential to consult with a lawyer immediately. Remember, your lawyer is your advocate, fighting for your rights and best interests every step of the way.

    In this episode, Andrew Iacobelli, from Iacobelli Law Firm, will help you navigate lowball offers on personal injury claims.


    Insurance companies, often the opposing side in personal injury claims, have a vested interest in limiting the amount of money they pay out on claims. Dealing with unrealistic lowball offers requires a strategic approach to negotiations.


    One of the key strategies is the importance of preparing every case for trial. By building a strong case that can be presented in court, the likelihood of receiving a fair settlement increases significantly. Learn about the importance of maintaining a consistent treatment plan and how being honest about symptoms and injuries can discourage lowball offers by creating risk for insurance companies.


    When faced with an unreasonable offer, it's essential to stay composed and seek guidance from a legal representative. Having a lawyer on your side can provide valuable insights into the value of a claim and the best negotiation strategies to pursue. If you have any questions or need assistance with your personal injury claim, feel free to reach out to us. Our team is available 24/7 to provide support and guidance.

    In today’s episode, Personal Injury Lawyer Andrew Iacobelli will discuss how lay witnesses can be a major asset to your personal injury claim. Family, friends and co-workers are generally seen as credible and unbiased witnesses. They are not financially or personally invested in the outcome of your claim, which can enhance their reliability in the eyes of the court. These personal relationships with you can lend credibility to your case.


    If multiple individuals who know you well provide consistent accounts of your condition and how the accident has affected you, it strengthens your case. Consistency among lay witnesses can help establish a clear and accurate narrative on how your injuries and symptoms have affected your abilities to perform daily activities or engage in recreational activities and hobbies.


    Andrew will also share how work colleagues, in particular, can provide an objective perspective on how the injury has affected your job performance, attendance, and overall work life. This can be important in cases where you are seeking compensation for lost wages or earning capacity.


    If you’ve been injured in an accident, your family, friends and co-workers can provide invaluable support and credibility to strengthen your personal injury claim. If you have questions or need assistance, reach out for a free consultation.

    In today’s video, Andrew will discuss the significance of reporting all of your injuries and symptoms if you’ve been injured in an accident. It’s not just about noting your injuries; it’s about connecting them to the accident and ensuring your medical history and treatment is accurate and supports your claim.


    Insurance companies are always seeking ways to deny claims. Complete medical records are crucial when pursuing an insurance claim. Insurers may request these records to assess the validity of your injuries and determine the extent of coverage. Inaccurate or incomplete information could lead to claim denials or reduced compensation. Furthermore, if your doctors are called to testify in a legal case, they must provide accurate and comprehensive information. Failing to document or acknowledge injuries could undermine their credibility during cross-examination and weaken your case.


    Documenting all of your injuries and symptoms after an accident is essential to protect your rights and maximize your chances of a successful personal injury claim. Empower yourself with knowledge that can make all the difference in your recovery and financial well being. If you have questions or need assistance, reach out for a free consultation.

  • What Is Lawyer-Client Privilege and How Does It Protect You?

    Is everything I say to my lawyer confidential? Lawyer-client privilege protects the confidentiality of communications between a lawyer and their client. This privilege enables clients to speak openly and honestly with their attorneys, knowing that the information shared cannot be disclosed to others, including in court. It promotes trust and effective legal representation by allowing clients to share sensitive information without fear of it being used against them. Lawyer-client privilege safeguards the privacy of attorney-client discussions, ensuring a foundation of trust within the legal system.

    In today’s video, Ontario Personal Injury Lawyer Andrew Iacobelli will explain how lawyer client privilege works. Lawyer-client privilege is a critical legal protection ensuring confidentiality between clients and their attorneys. It means that communications between them cannot be disclosed. This privilege works both ways: clients can also openly share information with their lawyers without fear of it being shared with third parties, like insurance companies or doctors.


    Andrew will share why it’s crucial to share all facts and information with your lawyer, even potentially harmful details, like employment history, unreported income, or past medical issues. Failure to disclose such information can harm your case and credibility.


    The lawyer-client privilege begins the moment you consult with an attorney, even before officially hiring them. It remains intact even after your case concludes or your relationship with the lawyer ends. This assurance of ongoing confidentiality should give you peace of mind.


    Remember, your lawyer is there to help you navigate legal processes, especially in personal injury cases. Being transparent and sharing all information will empower your lawyer to secure the best possible outcome for your case. If you have questions or need assistance, reach out for a free consultation.

  • How Long Do You Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Ontario? Statute of Limitations Explained

    Time is never on your side when you’re injured. The statute of limitations is a legal time limit that dictates how long you have to initiate a lawsuit after a specific event, such as an accident or injury. Once this prescribed period expires, you typically lose the right to bring a legal claim, regardless of its validity. Don't let the insurance companies gain the upper hand by waiting too long. Learn why time is of the essence and how early action can level the playing field. Watch now and safeguard your rights to fair compensation for your injuries, harms and losses.

    Join Andrew Iacobelli as he explains the concept of the Statute of Limitations in personal injury cases. The Statute of Limitations is a legal time limit within which an individual must initiate a lawsuit following an injury-causing incident. Failure to do so, with few exceptions, can result in the forfeiture of the right to bring a claim.


    In this episode Andrew will discuss the importance of seeking legal advice promptly after an accident. Speaking with a lawyer is not an immediate commitment to filing a lawsuit; rather, it is an opportunity to understand one's rights and obligations while preserving the claim's integrity. Waiting too long to seek legal advice can be detrimental to a case, as evidence may be most, memories fade over time  and insurance companies often begin building their defense as soon as they become aware of potential claims. 


    Consulting with a lawyer early, not only protects your rights but also ensures you have adequate time to assess the merits of your claim and make informed decisions about legal action. If you have questions or need assistance, reach out for a free consultation.

    Join Andrew Iacobelli as he uncovers the truth behind insurance medical examinations. In this episode, you’ll learn why these so-called “independent” assessments are far from impartial. Insurance companies are meticulous when it comes to selecting doctors to evaluate accident victims. Their primary objective is to minimize payouts and pay as little as possible for your injury or claim. Discover the tactics insurance companies employ to defeat or deny claims. 


    Learn about the importance of legal advice when attending these mandatory examinations. It’s crucial to be honest when discussing your injuries and pre-existing health conditions with doctors. Regular treatment with your healthcare providers on a consistent basis will help strengthen your case when your file is put under the microscope in court.


    Andrew will also discuss common surveillance tactics used by insurance companies. Insurance companies will often employ surveillance in personal injury cases to detect inconsistencies in claimants' behavior, looking for evidence that may contradict the severity of their injuries or impairments.
