Hamilton, Ontario (PRWEB) November 16, 2012
Personal injury lawyer Patricia R. Santucci of Hamilton, Ontario recently announced the launch of her new website. The site is specifically designed to inform potential clients about their rights when injured in an accident as well as describing the special areas of her law practice.
The site also includes a questionnaire that can be completed online to help the firm determine whether a personal injury victim has a viable case. Once the law firm receives the form, an immediate communication with the victim follows, either by telephone or by a free in-office consultation with Santucci.
"Too many personal injury law firms hand their cases over to non-professionals who don’t always understand the law”, Santucci said. “I hope that my new website will reach people who want a relationship with their lawyer and not with a junior associate or clerk".
It takes a community
Santucci is adamant that it takes a community to restore an injured person’s health, dignity and quality of life after a serious injury occurs. To this end, she works with a variety of professionals to achieve the best outcome possible to get her clients integrated back into their communities and their lives. Through her connections, she works with the medical community, victims’ employers, health insurance companies and other service providers to help heal the injured and prevent the loss of a job or a home.
Santucci stated being disconnected from your community has devastating effects for injured people.
"People don’t understand what an injury can do to a person and his or her family," Santucci explained. "If seriously injured, the victim can’t work. Not only do regular bills like rent and utilities start to pile up, but so do the non-OHIP funded medical bills required to make the victim whole again. In this all too common scenario, an accident is an extremely stressful event."
The need to contact a personal injury lawyer early on is vital
According to Santucci, one of the biggest mistakes people make is waiting too long to contact a lawyer after a serious injury. Most victims do not know their rights and can destroy their own case by not getting legal representation. In addition, evidence needed to conclude a successful settlement or lawsuit can disappear if it is not documented soon after the accident.
Santucci hopes that those injured in an accident will visit her website to learn about their rights and see how they can be compensated for their losses.

About Patricia Santucci
Patricia Santucci’s first profession was as a teacher, which led her to South Korea teaching ESL in a private school. Upon her return to Canada, she enrolled in law school, graduating in 1998.
After her call to the bar in 2000, Patricia Santucci went to work for a firm that largely represented insurance companies. Her job was to reduce or eliminate claims. While there, she learned how some insurance companies operate and the tactics used to deny a claim. The pursuit of justice was what first compelled her to become a lawyer and seeing the plight of personal injury victims at the hands of the insurance company was not something she wanted to pursue. That experience was pivotal in her decision to only represent injured people.
