Frequently Asked Questions

When you’re injured in an accident, you may face financial hardships, pain and suffering, or long-lasting chronic pain or disability. A personal injury lawyer helps you recover compensation for lost wages, medical expenses and other damages. Above all else, a great personal injury lawyer will do whatever it takes for you to have the best quality of life possible after your accident.

Unfortunately, your insurance company is not on your side. They’re in the business of making money, so they’ll do whatever they can to pay you the least amount of money possible. There are multiple factors to consider when determining a fair settlement, so it’s best to consult a lawyer before settling to ensure you’re getting what you deserve.

Under the Ontario Limitations Act, you must file an injury claim within two years of the accident, with some exceptions. It’s always best to file a claim and contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to avoid any potential complications.

Yes. Injuries that seem minor at first can get worse over time or have long-term impacts on your health and overall wellbeing. Regardless of how severe your injuries are, it’s always a good idea to consult a personal injury lawyer. Even if you begin experiencing symptoms of injuries after the accident, seek medical care and legal advice promptly.

Most lawyers work on a contingency fee basis and offer free consultations. Usually, you won’t pay anything out of pocket; your lawyer only gets paid when and if you do. You can ask a lawyer about their fees during your consultation.

A contingency fee is an amount in which your lawyer collects when – and only when – you win your case. If your lawyer works on a contingency fee basis (they usually do), you won’t pay for legal fees out of pocket. Typically, it’s a percentage of about 20-35% of your settlement, but it depends on the lawyer and circumstance.

Ask family, friends, or co-workers if they’ve worked with or heard good things about a particular personal injury lawyer. Doing some online research is also a great way to find potential lawyers. Online reviews and testimonials will say a lot about lawyers’ success and relationships with their clients.

When hiring a lawyer, you want someone you can trust to do the job and who’ll have your back. Asking them some questions can help you to understand your case and their process better.

Here are some examples of questions you can write down and bring to your initial consultation:

  • Do you have experience with similar cases to mine? How much?
  • How do you typically handle your cases? What can I expect from you?
  • What’s the best way for me to communicate with you directly?
  • How long could this take to resolve?
  • What are my chances of success?
  • What is your overall assessment of my case?

More often than not, you can settle personal injury cases without going to trial. However, in some circumstances, it may be necessary if neither party comes to an agreement, there’s no settlement offer, and or if there’s a disagreement concerning liability and damages.

The severity of your case, the extent of injury, how the accident has affected your daily life, and numerous other factors determine how much compensation you could receive. Your injury lawyer will know best and can provide you with an estimate.
