FAQsDo I have a Ontario Disability or Personal Injury case? If you have been denied long term disability benefits or you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury due to someone else’s negligence, you may be able to advance a claim. Each persons’s facts and circumstances are unique, and you should consult with an Ontario disability and personal injury lawyer to learn if you have a case. We offer each prospective client a confidential consultation at no cost. There are a number of factors we will consider when making our determination on whether you have a disability or personal injury claim. To learn more, please contact our disability or injury lawyers.
What will the cost be? We are committed to ensuring that you get the best possible settlement or judgement based on your needs. Having our disability and injury lawyers on your team will not cost you anything until a settlement or judgement is reached.
How long will my case take? There are many factors that affect the length of a case. This includes the complexity of the issues, injuries, liability, and short and long term implications. It’s important that we allow time for injuries to stabilize so that we can make sure we fully understand the extent of your impairments.
Are there any steps I can take to help my case, while recovering from my injury? There are things that you can do to help your claim. You can retain documents and information that will assist your lawyer in proving your case. Example of documents include:
- Clinical notes and records from your healthcare providers
- Expert Reports
- Employment Records
- Canada Revenue Agency Records
- Insurance policy
- Police Records
- Witness Statements
Is there a time limit to bring a claim? There are specific time limits, called “statutes of limitations,” that govern the period during which you must file a long term disability or personal injury lawsuit. When the statute of limitations expires on your case, you are barred from bringing a lawsuit and you simply don’t have a case anymore. Statues of limitations differ according to the kind of lawsuit involved.
How much is my personal injury case worth? Every case is different. In personal injury cases, you are entitled to compensation for such things as pain and suffering (past and future); lost wages and ability to earn income (past and future); medical and rehabilitation expenses (past and future); disfigurement; disability, and loss of enjoyment of life (past and future). In disability cases, you may be entitled to past and possible future benefits as well as any consequential damages as a result of the dispute. In order to evaluate your claim, please contact our disability and injury lawyers. Still have questions?
