Frequently Asked Questions

What is a personal injury?

A personal injury is defined as an accident that causes an individual physical or emotional pain and suffering or a loss of income as a result of another’s negligence. With the assistance of licensed personal injury lawyers, plaintiffs can file civil lawsuits in court with the goal of receiving financial compensation.

What is a personal injury claim?

A personal injury claim begins when the plaintiff files a civil claim in court. This claim should include two main components — who is at fault for the accident and the type of damages being pursued.

In the case of a civil claim, damages are classified as the sum of all losses suffered at the hands of the accident. Damages can include pain and suffering, past lost income, cost of future medical care, earning capacity and legal costs, and more.

When it comes to understanding and filing a claim in Toronto, a personal injury lawyer can help you take the next step and ensure your claim is filed properly, with the right details.

What is a personal injury lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer is a licensed lawyer who provides legal services to clients who claim to have been physically or psychologically injured because of the negligence of another individual, company, or any other entity.

Personal injury lawyers specialize in what is known as tort law, which is a civil wrongdoing that causes a plaintiff to suffer loss or harm and results in the legal liability for the person committing the tortious act.

In Toronto, personal injury lawyers work on behalf of their clients to ensure they receive the compensation they deserve as a result of their not-at-fault accident.

When it comes to selecting the right personal injury attorney, there are important qualities and characteristics to be mindful of when interviewing potential counsel.

Communication
The process of any civil case can vary depending on the scope of the case. Open and transparent communication is an essential quality that your lawyer should possess. Asking about their availability and whether any legal assistants or staff will be on hand to answer interim questions can help you determine if they can meet your expectations for representation.

Strategy
Personal injury cases in Canada can have any number of outcomes and it’s important that your personal injury attorney can craft a succinct legal strategy should your case go to trial. You want to ensure your lawyer can pivot their strategy if needed without missing a step.

Finances
Hiring counsel can be a significant financial undertaking and should be considered carefully when choosing from personal injury lawyers in Toronto. Asking your potential lawyer their expectations for payment, including legal fees and disbursements, can help determine if you’re able to afford their services.

Your lawyer will provide a contingency fee agreement which will explain their fee structure during your free consultation. Contingency fees can vary depending on the complexity of the accident and expected results. A comprehensive guide from the Law Society of Ontario is also available to all clients.
