Personal injury lawsuits in Ontario

Ontario residents who have suffered injury, loss or damage in an accident caused by the negligent actions of others may pursue civil remedies, and a personal injury lawyer could file a lawsuit seeking damages against an individual or a corporation on their behalf. This type of litigation is often brought against those who may have acted negligently, but it may also be filed against an insurance company that has denied a claim.

This type of legal action is often brought on behalf of drivers, pedestrians, cyclists or motorcyclists who have been injured in a road traffic accident. If you have been injured in a car crash, you may wish to seek compensation because long periods during which you were unable to work have made things difficult for you financially. If you performed physically demanding work, you may never be able to return to your old job. You could also be contemplating a personal injury lawsuit after a slip-and-fall accident or because your long-term disability benefits have been denied.

An experienced personal injury lawyer may scrutinize both the circumstances of your accident and the nature of your injuries. Accident reports may be insufficient if no criminal charges were filed, and witness accounts often contain vague or contradictory statements. A lawyer could call upon medical experts for opinions about the likelihood of your injuries affecting future damages. This is particularly important with neck and back injuries that are common among car accident victims.

Pursuing a civil action is often a confusing and daunting prospect, and a lawyer could assess the merits of your case and explain how you may go about seeking compensation.
