How Our Cross Border Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help Snowbirds Injured In America

For 35 years, our personal injury lawyers have been assisting Canadians involved in car accidents and other personal injury accidents in the United States.

Every year, millions of snowbirds (Canadians and northern US residents) migrate south to escape harsh, cold winter weather. Unfortunately, some of these people will end up being injured in car accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, and more.

A serious personal injury can be life changing. However, when they occur in a different country, these injuries can become extremely complicated and overwhelming to navigate.

This is where the Snowbird Helpline comes in. We are a team of strong lawyers that specialize in cross border accidents.

Very few lawyers understand the complexity of cross border accidents. After a serious car accident or other type of accident has occurred, you will need a lawyer in both the state the accident occurred and in your home province too. It’s crucial that the two lawyers can work collaboratively to ensure your rights and remedies are properly protected.

Both lawyers will share one contingency fee based on the work performed. Since these lawyers work on a contingency basis, you will only pay for the services rendered once your settlement has been received, helping you to focus on your recovery, not your finances.

How Snowbird Helpline And Our Team Of Cross Border Personal Injury Lawyers Work

We are not a law firm. Instead, we are a USA corporation with headquarters in West Palm Beach, Florida and offices in Toronto, Canada. We work with a team of strong cross border personal injury lawyers across Canada and the United States. All these cross border personal injury attorneys and lawyers are certified by their respective State or Provincial Bar Association and can practice law.

You do not pay us any legal fees. We exist as a database to help facilitate the relationship between injured snowbirds and reputable personal injury lawyers. Ultimately, our goal is to help inform and empower snowbirds about their rights and remedies when they’ve been injured.

We provide information about car accidents, car insurance options, medical insurance options, personal injuries, and more. We do not provide legal advice. That is the job of the personal injury attorney or lawyer that you have retained.

The personal injury lawyers and attorneys recommended by us are leaders in their field and frequently deal with catastrophic car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents. They all have special expertise dealing with quadriplegia, paraplegia, serious brain injury, and amputation claims.

Why You Need A Cross Border Personal Injury Lawyer

Rules and regulations surrounding personal injury claims vary greatly between country, province, and state.

Additionally, private insurance companies provide different coverage and benefits based on where they are located and what your policy is.

For instance, if a claim is not brought against your insurance within the statutory time limits, it will be statute barred and can result in you being denied the benefits and compensation you deserve.

Unlike in Canada, health care in the United States is private and therefore can quickly become quite costly. Additionally, rules for car insurance differ greatly between Canada and the United States. They even vary between states.

Those are just two of the many reasons why cross border accidents can be complicated and confusing for someone to manage on their own, especially when injured.

Snowbird Helpline can arrange for some of the best cross border personal injury lawyers to help you navigate this process quickly, without added stress, so you can focus on rest and recovery.

These personal injury attorneys and lawyers will work collaboratively with your insurers and hospital and health care companies to quickly process your Canadian cross border claims. Our recommended teams of cross border personal injury lawyers will ensure your rights and remedies are protected while dealing with hospitals, insurance companies, and negligent parties to get you the compensation that you deserve.

Joseph presently resides in both Canada and the US. He possesses a solid understanding of the complexities of cross-border personal injury claims. Joseph understands how important it is for US and Canadian legal counsel to work together to pursue a cross-border personal injury claim successfully. It is the only way to ensure that accident victims are fairly compensated. Additionally, no matter how many lawyers are involved in a cross-border personal injury claim, they must share one contingency fee based on all work performed. From the perspective of the injured victim, they receive the services of multiple legal counsels, all for the price of one.

Your health and safety, plus the health and safety of your family or other injured parties is always top priority. Be sure to seek out medical attention immediately. It is important to make sure the police are contacted.

If possible, while still on the scene, obtain the driver’s license and insurance information of those involved in the accident. If possible, get contact information for all witnesses. Additionally, you should take notes and pictures of everything you can. This includes the scene of the accident, the other car, any visible injuries, and what caused the accident if known.

Make sure that your doctors are informed about the accident and all of your injuries. Take notes of what the doctor advises and keep a record of your injuries and healing process.

As soon as you are able, contact Snowbird Helpline. We can help advise you of the next steps you should take.
