Additionally, your own employment can be delayed or terminated, meaning a loss of personal income.

Frequently Asked Questions
What to ask when hiring a personal injury lawyer?
Asking friends, family members or other professionals who have hired a personal injury lawyer or have an established relationship with a lawyer can give you some insight into their capabilities but be mindful of the fact that getting a reference for a good lawyer is not the same thing as getting a reference for a good personal injury lawyer. Personal injury is a specialized area of law. When choosing a personal injury lawyer, look for someone who has experience and expertise in this area, and a proven track record. You can read more information in this blog post.
Do I have a good case?
Everyone who has been injured in an accident and is considering bringing a lawsuit asks this question. It is not possible to determine whether someone has a good case without first meeting them, reviewing any relevant documents and perhaps interviewing some independent witnesses in order to obtain all the facts.
Having a good case depends on many components, both factual and legal. An experienced personal injury lawyer can take a challenging case and make it better with proper preparation. Even some “bad” cases can be settled and it may be possible to get some compensation for someone who does not have a “strong” case.
How is fault determined?
Fault is determined based on the facts of the particular accident and how the law views those facts. The law has established several “causes of action” which means that it has recognized that certain facts will result in fault or liability. Fault is a legal question which can only be determined once all the material facts are known and the applicable law considered.
Will my case go to Court?
t is very unlikely that your case will have to go to court to get resolved. The civil litigation process in Ontario is heavily geared towards getting cases resolved by way of an out of court settlement. As a result only about 5% of personal injury cases actually reach trial.
If it is assumed that the case will settle this increases the chances that it will result in a trial as the defence lawyer will recognize that the plaintiff’s lawyer is not ready to try the case. Therefore the best approach in all personal injury cases is to prepare as if the case will end up in court because only a well prepared case will result in a fair settlement for the injured party.

What are the elements of a good case?
There are two important elements that must be established to have a successful personal injury case:
- Liability: Which is the determination of whose wrongful actions caused the accident; and
- Damages: Which is assessing the compensation recoverable for the injuries and financial losses sustained as a result of the wrongful act.
Generally, in order to have a good case you need to be able to prove the following elements:
- You have been injured, physically, emotionally, or psychologically;
- Someone else was at fault because they owed you a duty of care and failed to meet that duty; and
- The fault of the other person caused your injury and the resulting financial losses.

What are the chances that my case will go to court?
Our commitment is to help you reach an ideal outcome through amicable negotiations, if possible. It is unlikely that your case will need to go to court in order to be resolved, due to the fact that the civil litigation process in Ontario favours and is geared towards out-of-court settlements. As a result, a small percentage of personal injury cases go to trial.
Should I plan as if my case was going to trial anyway?
Definitely. If it is assumed that your case will settle and as a result, your side of the story is not adequately prepared, the chances of a trial taking place will increase. This is triggered by the fact that the defence lawyer will notice that your lawyer is not ready to try the case – the defence lawyer could then take advantage of the situation, pushing to trial to gain an upper hand.
What elements matter most in my case?
Gathering and organizing the right evidence is essential to a successful personal injury case. You need to prove who caused the accident and how you have been affected. Working with an experienced personal injury lawyer can help you find and organize the evidence and strengthen your argument.

I could never have imagined what care Mann Lawyers have given to my family through the years. Edward Masters is truly a great lawyer and an asset to my family. Thank you.
A couple of years ago my life changed as a result of a slip and fall. I sustained some serious side effects that have continued to negatively affect my quality of life. As a lay person, suffering with a concussion, it can be very daunting to navigate the legal system. Thankfully, I was advised to seek out Mann Lawyers and specifically you (Karine Devost), as my legal counsel. That was probably the best advice I have ever received. Karine, you are intelligent, empathetic and you really "listen". You and your team's professionalism and commitment for a fair settlement went far beyond my expectations. I want to thank you so very much for your kindness and your dedication. I will be forever grateful to you for making my life better. It is because of you that I received a fair and reasonable settlement without going to court.
After having a serious motorcycle accident in 2015, I was comfortable having Mann Lawyers deal with my legal matters. My lawyer, Ted Masters, kept my wife and me informed concerning the legal steps as well as getting help that was required for my recovery. I appreciated the fact that Ted was able to explain things in a down to earth way. He was always available when needed and I would highly recommend him and Mann Lawyers.
I was represented by Mann Lawyers in a disability related case. Ted Masters built a strong argument based on my disability of Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. Ted has a lot of experience and strategies to advocate on behalf of his clients. As a result, we were successful. Ted’s approach with me was always reassuring, logical, humane and respectful of my personal situation. I really appreciated that he could be reached easily at all times.
Mr. Cantor helped me settle both my Accident Benefits and Torts claims. Throughout the process he was always my strongest advocate and fought for me even when I was not strong enough to fight for myself. Mr. Cantor, and his Legal Assistant Julie were always there for questions or support. He was able to put together a team that helped me get back to work and normal functions of everyday life post-accident. I was very satisfied with my final compensation and highly recommend Mr. Cantor for his professional, supportive and compassionate services.
I was referred to Kevin Cantor, from Mann Lawyers, after the death of my brother in 2016. After explaining what had happened, Kevin agreed that we had grounds for a medical malpractice suit. Kevin was excellent, explaining what would happen if we went ahead with the suit and what to expect from the defendants lawyers. Kevin was always prepared for court and I never lost confidence in his ability to help me when I needed it the most. Kevin and his secretary Julie both did an awesome job. This was a long process and as the case progressed, Kevin showed complete professionalism, and caring. Kevin was successful and I was awarded a sizable settlement. I would highly recommend Kevin to anyone facing the challenge of losing a loved one due to malpractice and negligence.
