Recovering financial compensation after a personal injury accident can be complicated. Negligent parties typically don't accept any responsibility for what happened. Insurance companies aren't much help, either. They are mostly interested in keeping their profit margins high. To do that, they try to keep their payouts low.

There are tactics insurance companies use to try to avoid paying you the compensation you deserve. They may argue that your injuries had nothing to do with the accident. They may even blame you for causing it. Sometimes, they'll make you a lowball settlement offer, hoping you'll take it and just go away.

We investigate your accident to find out what really happened. Our legal team knows where to look for evidence. We carefully review all documentation, such as accident reports and medical records. If there were witnesses, we interview them ourselves. If needed, we consult with experts.

Focused on the best possible outcome

Our attorneys know how to build a strong case that the insurance companies can't ignore. We know how to prove that the negligence of another caused the accident that left you injured. If the insurance company questions your injuries, we fight back with medical evidence to prove you were hurt.

The insurance companies often agree to talk about a settlement when they see that we are prepared to fight. We're only interested in a resolution of your case that meets your needs. This includes compensation for current and future medical expenses, lost wages and other damages. If the insurance company won't negotiate, we are ready to fight for you in court.

We know the impact a personal injury accident can have on you and your family. Medical expenses add up quickly and can soon become overwhelming. If you are left unable to work, there is less income coming in. The bills don't stop coming in, and your financial situation can become very stressful.

If you've been hurt in an accident in Ottawa, it's important to get legal advice as soon as possible. There is a statute of limitations that gives you two years from the date of the accident to take legal action. It sounds like plenty of time, but it can take months to build a case. Also, evidence can be lost and the memories of witnesses can fade the longer you wait.

You can expect certain things when you are represented by our law firm. You can expect us to take your case seriously and treat you with compassion and respect. You can expect us to work hard to build a strong case and keep you informed on its progress. You can expect us to fight to get the best possible outcome.
