If you believe you have a personal injury claim, please contact us immediately. We often offer free consultations and we often handle cases on a contingency basis.

Are You Injured?

If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s carelessness or negligence, you may have a personal injury claim against the wrongdoer. Some examples of such claims include defective products, assaults, slip and fall incidents, medical malpractice and many other scenarios generally relating to the fault of others.

It is important that you contact our office as soon as possible. There may be limitation periods that apply to your case. It is also important to view the scene or source of injury in a timely fashion and interview witnesses at an early stage.

What Kind of Compensation Can I Seek?

Whether its through an out of court settlement or a court judgment, we will seek compensation on your behalf for your pain and suffering, for your loss of income and loss of future earning capacity, for yo:ur out of pocket expenses, for your legal costs and for your loss of opportunity to invest those funds. We work closely with you to determine how the injury has had an impact on your life and then we advocate on your behalf to obtain the greatest possible settlement or judgment.

I Only Have a Minor Injury. Should I Still Pursue a Personal Injury Claim?

After an accident, you may not feel that your injuries are serious; however, it is important to see your medical professional as soon as possible. Your injuries may become worse over  time or change in a way that you may not originally expect. It is important that you contact our office as soon as possible in order to obtain legal advice to determine how best to proceed.

What Will I Pay in Legal Fees?

Depending on the nature of your case, we may be able to accept it on a contingency basis.

This means that our fee will be based on a percentage of the overall settlement or judgment that we obtain for you. If we cannot obtain a settlement or judgment for you, there will be no legal fee.

We will discuss your options with you in order to ensure that your legal fees and costs are fair and reasonable.

What Kinds of Cases Count as Personal Injury Cases?

Any event that results in a physical or mental injury to you or a member of your family through the fault of another is considered a personal injury case. We will determine the applicable law and how best to proceed after meeting with you. It may be that it is best to proceed by filing a lawsuit in the Court of Queen’s Bench, or we may be able to obtain a settlement for you without having to file a lawsuit. It is also possible that the compensation available to you is prescribed by legislation and we may have to appear before an administrative tribunal or panel on your behalf.
