Frequently Asked Questions
Many of our clients ask, and it is perfectly fine to wonder, what is my case worth and how does a personal injury settlement look? In personal injury cases, such as if you are injured in a motor vehicle accident, monetary damages are paid to an injured victim, commonly referred to as the “plaintiff”, by the at fault party known as the “defendant”.
The defendant is responsible for the accident, and often times their insurance will step in their shoes and defend the action. In Ontario, approximately 90% of the cases will settle before trial. Read More...
