Personal Injury

Our Approach

Suffering from a personal injury is more than just physically painful — it can also cause mental distress and result in financial burdens. Family can lose time and money in helping you recover. Additionally, your own employment can be delayed or terminated, meaning a loss of personal income. Also, there are the expenses associated with healthcare, rehabilitation, and other forms of support, to say nothing about the changes needed if you suffer permanent bodily or mental health damage.

The very last thing you need at this time is to be weighed down with legal concerns.

Whether you want to pursue an individual or organization for causing an accidental injury or are being denied an insurance claim, it is a good idea to work with an experienced legal firm.

By working with our legal team, we can help you to focus all your effort and energy on getting better.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

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.

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.

It 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
