Frequently Asked Questions about Personal Injury Lawsuits 

What is a personal injury?

There are two different definitions of “personal injury.” In general terms, it means any injury inflicted onto a person’s body, which is different from damage to property, or to reputation. However in legal terms, it means physical injury, mental injury, or property damage caused to you or the ones you love by another party’s negligence.

If your personal injury was due to another person’s negligence or inattention, you may have a case to file a personal injury lawsuit to seek damages for your pain and suffering. Call +1 (613) 233-4529 today to set up your free consultation and learn how our personal injury lawyers can support you. 

Will my personal injury case go to trial?

Most personal injury lawsuits never go to trial. Up to 90% of them are settled during the mediation phase, and there’s no need for you or your injured loved one to see the inside of a courtroom.

However, our team prepares for every case as if it will go to trial, making sure that all the evidence is in line, your case is strong, and you’re prepared for being interviewed on the witness stand. So if your case does go to trial instead of settling, you don’t need to worry, because your lawyer will make sure you’re prepared and ready no matter what happens in your case.

What is personal injury mediation?

In many parts of Ontario, a mandatory 3-hour mediation is often scheduled early in the lawsuit process, to help parties attempt to settle before things can go to trial. To prepare for mediation, Richard, Brenda, or one of our other lawyers will choose a mediator who has a good reputation, prepare a statement of issues (otherwise known as the mediation memorandum), and represent you at the mediation when it happens.

How long do I have to file a personal injury claim?

It’s best to file as soon as possible after you’re injured. There are deadlines that are different per each type of injury, and the longer you wait the less evidence you may have unless you collected it from the scene at the time of your accident.

Contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your accident to ensure you have the expert help you need to support you in this stressful time. Call +1 (613) 233-4529 today to set up your free consultation and learn how the lawyers at Auger Hollingsworth can support you. 

How much does a personal injury lawyer cost?

Our contingency clause means that you won’t pay us anything unless and until we get a settlement or judgement delivered on your behalf. At that point, our firm will take a pre-agreed upon amount of your compensation as our fee. All of the fees are transparent, and will be discussed in advance and outlined in your contract before we even start working on your case.

To determine the claim amount, the amount of your damages and the extent of your injuries will be considered.

 A knowledgeable personal injury attorney can help you negotiate the best settlement or fight for a higher claim amount in court.
