Toronto Personal Injury Lawyers

When an accident or workplace injury occurs, the first thought is usually not to call a lawyer – but it should be. Sorting out what happened while witnesses still remember events, the accident site remains intact, and the physical evidence is still being collected is key to preserving your rights to fair compensation. Your attention should be on your injury recovery while experienced Toronto personal injury lawyers work the legal strategy. 

That’s why in the aftermath of an accident or injury, you should immediately contact the Toronto personal injury lawyers at Auger Hollingsworth. Richard Auger and Brenda Hollingsworth, along with a team of personal injury associates, know what to do and how to advocate for their clients. While you recover, our experienced personal injury lawyers can be investigating and preserving your claims for compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages, payment for future therapies and procedures, and, if applicable, punitive damages.

We care about our clients. Our law practice focuses on personal injury law and our skilled lawyers offer clients a deep knowledge of tort law, relevant statutes, and insurance practices. We know the players and the strategies involved for success. We will explain what to expect and how we will proceed so that at least some of the uncertainty is mitigated. 

Ontario Personal Injury Compensation Process

As the victim of an accident, you need to hire counsel to help you navigate the process of recovery while preserving your rights to compensation. 

Ontario accident lawyers Richard Auger and Brenda Hollingsworth will explain the legal process to you in detail. Here’s just a peek at what to expect. 

  • Fact-finding and legal research
  • Pleadings
  • Mediation
  • Discovery
  • Cross-examination
  • Trial preparation
  • Toronto settlement conference

There might be interim proceedings called motions, where the issues presented for trial might be simplified, evidence excluded, or additional documents produced.

Many times as a case proceeds to trial, lawyers for the parties meet to discuss settlement, an alternative to the cost and time required to try a case before a jury. However, only experienced Toronto personal injury lawyers like those at Auger Hollingsworth can move forward with trial preparation while also negotiating a fair and equitable settlement of your claims.

What to do after a Personal Injury Accident in Toronto

Finding yourself injured can turn your life entirely upside down. Whether it’s caused by a motor vehicle accident, trip, slip, or fall, it can turn your life upside down temporarily, or even permanently. Even if it happened to a member of your family, it can cause a lot of turmoil and change.

If an injury just happened to you, the first step is not to panic. After that, here are some key steps to take after an injury in Toronto:

  • Get to safety and wait for medical personnel to arrive. 
  • Record all the information you can, including pictures, witness information and statements, etc.
  • Save all documents from doctor visits, medical records, hospital bills, and anything related to the treatment of the injury.
  • Keep a journal recording how the injury impacted you, your life, and your family.
  • Contact a personal injury lawyer in Toronto.

It’s important to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible after your accident, especially if you’re dealing with an at-fault party and your insurance company isn’t being helpful. Likely, your insurance company will try to save money and that can end up complicating your claim process, and make it difficult to recover the compensation you deserve.

Frequently Asked Questions about Personal Injury Lawsuits 

What is a personal injury?

The general definition of “personal injury” is any injury inflicted onto a person’s body, which is different from damage to property or reputation. In legal terms, it means physical or mental injury, or property damage caused to you by another party’s negligence. 

If your injury or damaged property was caused by someone else’s inattention or negligence, you may have a case to file a personal injury lawsuit against them to help recover damages and seek justice. Call +1 (613) 233-4529 today to set up your free consultation and learn how our personal injury lawyers can support you. 

What is personal injury mediation?

In many areas of Ontario, a mandatory 3-hour mediation is often scheduled early in the process, to help the parties try to settle the lawsuit. To prepare for mediation, Richard or Brenda will choose a mediator whose style and reputation is favourable to you; prepare a statement of issues, otherwise called the mediation memorandum; and represent you at the mediation.

What is the discovery phase of a personal injury lawsuit?

If the lawsuit is not settled during the mediation process, the next step is to focus on fact-finding by requesting documents and calling witnesses for examination to secure a full picture of what happened. As the plaintiff, you, too, will be asked to produce requested documents and to write up what you experienced and know in an affidavit, signed under oath, and perhaps submit to a physical examination to allow the defendant to evaluate your injuries. Key documents are medical records, road or walkway maintenance records, vehicle repair records and your employment file if there are claims for loss of income. 

How does a personal injury lawsuit start?

 A lawsuit begins with a Statement of Claim which states the claims for injuries and demands compensation along with the story of how the accident occurred. The defendant, usually represented by an insurance company, responds to the Statement of Claim with a Statement of Defence, which lays out the defendant’s version of the accident. We can file a response to the Statement of Defence, which rebuts the defendant’s version of the story.

What is the Toronto Settlement Conference?

This may be the first significant consideration of your case by a court official, a judge or a master. Your lawyers at Auger Hollingsworth will schedule the settlement conference; prepare the settlement conference brief, which is called the script for trial; and attend the settlement conference with you. 

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.
