Picking a Car Accident Lawyer in Ottawa? Here’s What You Need to Know

Not all Ottawa personal injury lawyers have the same experience

Pick the right car accident lawyer. There are many Ontario lawyers who practice personal injury law as well as real estate law, commercial litigation, employment law and family law. You wouldn’t want a family doctor handling your specialized organ transplant. Why would you want a generalist lawyer handling your injury case? Ontario personal injury law is constantly changing and evolving, and you need someone who spends enough time working in the field to keep updated on the changes.

Not only that, but we have experienced a broad range of personal injury cases, and have seen a huge caseload. Because of this, issues are less likely to come up because we know how to prepare and what to look out for. It’s not our first rodeo, so there are fewer surprises.

Ontario insurance companies know the fighters 

Lawyers, especially those in personal injury, have reputations. There are the ones who are known to always settle, and there are the ones who will go to court to get you what you deserve.

At Auger Hollingsworth, we have a major advantage. One of our lawyers, Richard Auger, has a lot of experience in criminal cases and medical malpractice. Criminal cases go to court all the time, and do so much more often than personal injury. Ontario lawyers beware: Auger Hollingsworth has fighters!

There is no cost unless you win at trial or receive a settlement

Most personal injury clients choose to handle fees through a contingency retainer. That means that we get paid only if we win your case and you get paid. This is called a contingent fee because our fee depends on whether we win your case. If we do not win your case, then we don’t get paid. It’s as simple as that!
