Personal Injury Litigation
We provide thorough, effective, caring representation to our clients in the following areas:
Litigation arising from personal injury or disability can arise in a wide-range of circumstances. If you are injured through someone else’s fault, you have a claim for damages against the at-fault party in most cases. Typically, a liability insurance policy will cover the negligence of the at-fault party. In the case of disability, your claim will most often be brought against a private insurance company.
In all cases of injury, it is very important to obtain medical treatment in a timely fashion. Even if your injuries might seem minor, it is best to been seen by medical personnel at or near the time of your injury. In some cases, the nature and extent of your injuries may change significantly over time and it is important in the context of a personal injury claim to have medical documentation to support your injuries and impairments.
We recognize that being injured or unable to work unexpectedly can be very stressful and difficult to cope with. The circumstances surrounding a personal injury claim can be very complex. It is not always obvious as to who should be notified of your claim, or the timelines for doing so. This is why it is a good idea to talk to a personal injury lawyer early in the process to get the guidance and direction you need. We do not charge for initial consultations respecting your personal injury claim. The initial consultation gives us a chance to evaluate your claim and provide our opinion on whether or how best to proceed. We do not charge any legal fees until your claim is either successfully settled, or brought to a successful judgment at trial.
Above all, it is important to develop a strong sense of trust in your personal injury lawyer. Litigation over personal injuries can be lengthy and difficult and it necessitates a solid rapport between the lawyer and client to achieve a successful result. We believe it is very helpful to our clients that we are local to both our clients, and to the York Region Court House in Newmarket. Where necessary, we are happy to arrange hospital or home visits at your convenience to discuss your matter.
