Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyers you Can Rely on

Throughout the years, we have taken on some of the most challenging cases involving car accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, ATV accidents or pedestrian accidents. We have been hugely successful, getting millions of dollars in compensation for our clients. Often times, these cases are referred to us by other lawyers with less experience. More than 95% of all Ontario injury cases settle without going to court. The remaining 5% are challenging and complicated.

We are not afraid to fight for you.

We take these cases to high levels of court, such as the Ontario Court of Appeal. We have helped people suffering from paraplegia and severe head injuries get millions of dollars in compensation at the Ontario Court of Appeal when other lawyers have turned their cases away.

We are not afraid to fight for maximum compensation; we insist on it.

We dedicate ourselves to advocating for all our clients and their families and we make sure they get the compensation, attention and care they need and deserve. We remain at our clients’ side every step of the way and won’t settle for anything than complete justice.

We understand, we care and we are here to help and our track record proves it.

Our clients are our number one priority. Regardless of your situation, we will work closely with you to understand your needs and fight for your rights. With every case we take on, we are 100 % committed to making sure that the results are in our client’s favour.

In 1999, David Hollingsworth started out as a personal injury lawyer helping Ontario accident victims get the help and compensation they needed. He became known as the passionate advocate that Ottawa and eastern Ontario residents sought for help in maximizing their insurance claims. He understood what they were going through, he cared and he was there to help work through tough times.

David and his team are dedicated to a whole new level. David brought passion, energy, experience and empathy to each and every client’s case and consequently ended up becoming one of the top personal injury lawyers in Ottawa. Working in a successful Ottawa law firm of 60 years, David built his own team of lawyers that specialize in personal injury law.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most lawyers work on a contingency basis. This means that the lawyer receives an agreed upon percentage of the total settlement when a settlement is reached. Typically, a personal client does not pay out of pocket. Lawyers' fees typically range from 20% to 35%.

The average settlement amount for a case depends on several factors including liability, age, extent of injuries, salary etc.. It’s best you consult one of our lawyers who can give more specifics.

You can sue for any amounts ranging from $3500 for “minor injuries” in a claim for accident-benefits and up to millions of dollars, depending on the severity of your claim.

It’s important you have confidence in the lawyer you hire. A couple of important questions to ask are:

  • Does your firm specialize in personal injury cases?
  • How many years' experience do you have?
  • Have you handled cases similar to my case?
  • If needed, are you prepared to take my personal injury case to trial?
  • What methods of communication do you use? Phone, Text, Email, Zoom meetings?
  • How many personal injury cases are you currently handling?

In short, nothing. In the United States, the term lawyer and attorney are used interchangeably. In Canada, we do not use the term attorney to describe a lawyer. So, when you hear someone refer to an attorney in Canada, what they are actually referring to is a lawyer.

Although you may be partially at fault in an accident, you still may be entitled to compensation. Liability (fault) is often apportioned (eg. 25/75 or 50/50 ) so you may be entitled to a portion of your losses.

The delayed onset of symptoms from an accident is not uncommon and will not prevent you from making a claim. Seek medical attention immediately and call an experienced lawyer ASAP.

Absolutely. Our lawyers are experienced in handling these LTD claims. Please be aware of strict timelines to challenge an LTD denial and pursue a claim. Contact our LTD lawyers for a free consultation.

There are many different factors that determine whether or not an offer to settle is fair. For example, future care needs, income losses, housekeeping expenses, not to mention pain and suffering. It's recommended you consult with an experienced lawyer prior to settling your claim.

The best injury lawyers come from good referrals. Ask for recommendations from friends, family members, or co-workers who have had experience with a personal injury claim. Research the lawyers online and pay attention to the online reviews.

A good personal injury lawyer helps people return to the quality of life they enjoyed before the accident or injury by helping to recover money and resources to pay for medical treatment and to recover lost wages and or compensation for pain and suffering.

An experienced personal injury lawyer makes your recovery their number one priority by working to ensure you receive maximum compensation for your injuries while guiding you through the claims process. Personal injury lawyers also have years or decades of experience in knowing the ins and outs of the insurance claims process.

No, not necessarily. Most injury lawyers work on a contingency basis which means they will cover most costs throughout the claims process and are only paid when and if your case settles. This means there is little financial risk for you.

David Hollingsworth,
Personal Injury Lawyer

I have rarely met with a client who is receiving the full amount of benefits that he or she needs and that he or she is entitled to following an accident, without the help of a personal injury lawyer. If you are injured, you owe it to yourself and to your loved ones to get every benefit to which you are entitled, so that you can get back to being the person you were before the accident. That’s what insurance is for. Don’t sell yourself or your family short. Let us help you…

We will travel to your home, hospital, or rehabilitation centre throughout eastern Ontario.
