Personal Injury Lawyers Ottawa

Every personal injury case begins when someone is hurt and they believe someone else was at fault for their accident. If you have been injured as a result of careless, reckless, or malicious behavior, you likely have a legal claim against the at-fault party. As you recover from your injuries, you are likely unaware of the rights and options that are available to you. A personal injury lawyer in Ottawa can explain what those options are and give you the best chance of a successful outcome.

What is Personal Injury Law?

Personal injury law provides injured individuals with a means of collecting compensation after they have been hurt by someone else’s negligence. Negligence is rarely an intentional act. Instead, it involves careless actions that resulted in someone else becoming hurt. 

When filing a personal injury claim, you do not have to prove someone else intentionally hurt you. However, you must establish that the person who injured you owed you a duty of care, that they breached their duty, and that you were injured as a result.

Types of Personal Injury Cases We Take

Our knowledgeable attorneys have experience with many different types of personal injury cases. We take cases that involve:

  • Burn injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Construction accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Eye injuries
  • Hearing loss
  • Negligent security or maintenance
  • Nursing home abuse
  • Premises liability
  • Slip and fall
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Wrongful death
  • Motor vehicle accidents

When you allow our personal injury lawyers in Ottawa to handle your claim, we will take care of every detail while also keeping you informed every step of the way.

What to Expect During the Personal Injury Claim Process

Sometimes, the fear of the unknown is enough to keep a person from filing for the compensation they deserve. Understanding the process and knowing what to expect can greatly help you feel more comfortable and prepared for the process. While we work on your injury claim, our lawyers will:

  • Collect evidence: Medical records, police reports, and eyewitness accounts are just some of the most important pieces of evidence we collect to prove your claim.
  • The demand letter: We will accurately evaluate your claim and send the negligent party, as well as their insurance company and legal representation, a demand letter outlining your full damages.
  • Negotiation: Initial demands are rarely immediately met by the negligent party. We will enter into negotiations to help you secure the fair settlement you deserve.
  • Filing a lawsuit: If the liable party refuses to offer a fair settlement, we will file a lawsuit and take the case to trial.
  • Mediation: Even after filing the lawsuit, an out-of-court settlement is still sometimes possible. Mediation can help expedite this process.
  • Trial: Most personal injury cases do not go to trial, but we are always prepared for it in the event the liable party is acting unfairly.

Throughout every step of the process, we will explain how certain actions will affect your case and will always keep you informed.
