Do I Have a Case?

There are specific elements to meet in a personal injury lawsuit to recover damages. You must show that someone had a duty and failed to uphold that obligation. For example, drivers have a responsibility to comply with all rules of the road (like speed limits).

If they fail to abide by the law, they may be found negligent. That negligence makes them and their insurance company liable for any injuries they cause.

Personal injury/negligence laws do not only apply to car crashes. They also apply to slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice incidents, recreational vehicle accidents, and wrongful death cases.

At Donnelly Murphy Lawyers, our team will explain which laws apply and get the maximum possible amount.

How Long Do I Have to File?

After an accident, you have a limited amount of time to file a claim. If you fail to act quickly, your lawsuit may be dismissed, and you won’t recover compensation. You have two years from the day you suffered a loss, injury or became aware of them to file a lawsuit.

How Much Compensation Can I Expect?

Serious injuries also come with a lot of financial harm. Recovering compensation can help with your medical care and return you to where you were before the accident. However, determining the value can get complicated.

You should consider not only your out-of-pocket costs but also future losses and non-economic damages.

You may be entitled to:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages and loss of earning potential
  • Out of pocket costs
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Funeral expenses
  • Burial costs

The amount you ultimately recover will depend on the severity of your injuries, expenses you incurred, and the harm to your life. If you have questions about how much your case is worth, let us help you get a realistic idea of any personal injury settlement or court award.

Ontario Personal Injury Insurance Laws

Most people have some level of insurance in Canada. Whether it is:

  • Legally mandated vehicle insurance
  • Optional personal accident insurance
  • Premises liability insurance
  • Bodily injury liability insurance; or some other policy,

we can determine if the person or company who caused your injuries has the financial coverage or means to pay for your damages. If they don’t have insurance, we may still file a lawsuit against them personally.

We Negotiate with At-fault Insurers

Insurance companies are in the business of making money. When working with insurance companies, you should never give them a statement without consulting a lawyer.

They may act friendly, but it’s in their financial interest to deny, minimize, or delay your claim. It’s in your best interest to work with a lawyer to prove your claim and recover what’s fair.

Factors That Affect Personal Injury Settlements

No two cases are the same, and the compensation in each will vary. Some of the factors that influence the value of a personal injury claim include:

  • How Severe Are Your Injuries?
  • Who’s Liable for the Damage?
  • Was Your Ability to Work Affected?
  • Did You Suffer Any Long-Term Harm?
  • How Much Past and Future Medical Care Do You Need?
  • Was Your Daily Life Negatively Impacted?

You should discuss your situation with an experienced lawyer. We will examine every aspect of your case and determine what’s next. If necessary, we’ll bring in experts, reconstruct the accident, thoroughly assess the harm done, and fight for everything you are entitled to under the law.
