Hiring a pesonal injury attorney as soon as possible can be of incredible help for many reasons. Early on, your attorney can make sure that all your costs and needs are paid for upon your return home – such as modifying your home, equipment, caregiving, transportation, attendant care, help managing your medications, physical therapy, speech therapy, skin bladder and bowel care or other required therapies.

The usual fees vary between 25% and 33.3% of your settlement – BUT – it’s important to understand that Ontario is a “loser pays” based legal ssytem – meaning that if you are successful in your case, the insurer for the person that hurt you will contribute to some of your legal fees.

If you suffered serious injuries, wage losses, you require help around your home or you require extended medical care, you need to hire a personal injury lawyer that has experience dealing with insurance companies to make sure you are financially compensated and that you and your family are taken care of financially.  Remember, insurance companies make a profit by minimizing the amounts they payout on personal injury claims. If you speak to one of their representatives, remember they are NOT on your side.

Since 2003, we’ve helped hundreds of families secure millions of dollars in compensation for people that need it most – ensuring justice is served.  Every case is unique. Our experience negotiating with insurance companies and government agencies guides every decision we make in handling your case.

Many injured people do not contact a lawyer because they think they cant afford one. Our firm works on a no-win-no fee firm. This means that we accept personal injury and disability cases in Ontario on contingency and are only paid once we win your case.  Your fees with our firm will be a percentage of your settlement or Court award. This give you access to justice, regardless of financial resources.

When hiring a personal injury lawyer, it’s not easy making the right choice – but choosing the wrong lawyer can be devastating, since you only have once shot at advancing your case. Consider asking the following:

  1. How many trials have you done?
  2. What is your record of success?
  3. What is your fee agreement?
  4. Do I need to go to Court?
  5. How long does a typical case take?
  6. Will you be personally handling my case?
  7. Will this case cost me anything?
  8. How many cases like mine have you handled?

Unless your have suffered devastating injuries, such as paaraplegia or quaderiplegia, odds are that it is too soon to tell. If any personal injury lawyer provides you a promise to recover a certain amount of money, we would recommend getting a second opinion. We need to know the absolute extent of your maximum medical recovery since the extent of injuries tend to change over time.

It is not possible to determine early on whether or not you will need to go to Court. While most serious personal injury cases do settle so that everyone can avoid the shockingly high costs of trials, trial do happen if there are issues that need to be determined. We will keep you updated as we progress, but it is simply not possible for a lawyer to rightly know so early on in the case.

Most if not all personal injury lawyers charge a fee of 25% to 33.3%  of you settlement. The insurance company of the defendant will normally help pay a portion of this if you are successful.

There is a cap in Canada – which currently for 2021 is $393,732.00.

It’s not easy – we recommend sitting and speaking with a few lawyers before you decide. When you choose your lawyer, consider that:

  • a good personal connection between you and that lawyer is critical;
  • you feel like you will not be just another case;
  • the lawyer should be local or close by;
  • the attorney should have trial experience;
  • the lawyer is specialized in personal injury law;
  • the lawyer has a good reputatation and
  • make sure they will be personally working on your case.

Every personal injury case is different so the amount of time it takes to get to the end of a case can vary. Some personal injury cases can go to trial while some are settled out of court. We always tell our clients that the reason personal injury cases take so long is because we are combining busy systems together – i.e. legal, judicial, medical and insurance.

Of course, we have clients all over southern Ontario, and as far North as Sudbury. If you have suffered a life changing injury, a loved one has lost their life unecessarily or you have been denied disability benefits, we will always be gald to help.

 

Think of in terms of different categories – which we call heads of damages. If you have suffered a serious injury, you can normally claim compensation for pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of amenities, loss of past wages, loss of future wages, loss of housekeeping capacity, claims for future health care expenses outside of what OHIP covers, as well as claims for rehabilitation expenses such as for rehab expenses, care workers, assistive and hygienic devices, home and vehicle modifications ect.

A good personal injury settlement depends on many factors, including the range of damages negotiated for your pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of amenities, past and future wage losses, the amount of future care you require, the amount housekeeping assistance you require and the losses suffered by your family members.

Absolutely . It is very important that you hire a local personal injury lawyer. It’s important that you can visit your lawyer’s office, sit and talk with your lawyer without having to drive long distances and more importantly, you personally know the lawyer working on your case.
