FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SETTLE MY CASE?
The complexity of your case and the severity of your injuries will determine the timeframe for a fair and reasonable settlement. For most motor vehicle and slip and fall accidents, it takes between 1-3 years in order to achieve a fair resolution. Ideally, we wait until you have reached maximum medical recovery so we can accurately determine your permanent and serious injuries. It is our mission to ensure that we fully appreciate the extent and severity of your injuries. Knowing the effect your injuries have on your future and your ability to work or function is a further primary concern.
HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO SUE?
For a tort committed in Ontario, the limitation period is two years. However, this period may change you did not learn of the issue/situation within the two-year time frame and you discovered the wrong doing afterwards. Please kindly call our firm to find out how long you have to sue based on your circumstances.
DO I HAVE A STRONG CASE?
This is generally one of the first questions a client asks and the answer depends largely on the specific facts of your situation. Cases are fact and medical dependent and written evidence is relied upon to prove damages. The strength of your case is largely dependent on the strength of your evidence.
HOW MUCH WILL I GET?
It is likely we will be able to give you a monetary range after we become familiar with the facts and evidence to support your potential case. Predicting an exact amount is nearly impossible given the enormous amount of factors that are weighed in determining the strengths and weaknesses. Should your case have potential to settle without a trial, which is a common, we will recommend a number. However, you have the final determination.
DO YOU REPRESENT INSURANCE COMPANIES?
We do not act for insurance companies or defendants in any capacity.
WILL THE INSURANCE COMPANY CONTINUE TO PAY MEDICAL BILLS AFTER WE SETTLE THE CASE?
Future costs for medical rehabilition will be included in the settlement with the insurance company. If you have reached a settlement, signed a release, and cashed the cheque, you will not receive any further payments for medical care.
