Being in an accident can be devastating and you may need an Ottawa personal injury lawyer. In a split second, your life has changed and it may never be the same again. You are suffering and so is your family. You may be wondering if you will ever be the same again. Can you still work? Will you return to the same quality of life? How can you get through all this? Are you worried about your children and your family? Will your injuries affect your relationships?
We only get paid when you get paid. No upfront costs.
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 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 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.
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.
Located in Ottawa, we are proud to offer bilingual law services. Should you speak French and need a French lawyer, we are more than happy to provide you with just that. Contact our team today to learn more about how we can help you.
Our team works closely not only with our clients, but their families, physicians, nurses, social workers, physiatrists, physiotherapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, occupational therapists and any other treating health professionals that are part of the rehabilitative team. As a team, we work together to make sure that our personal injury clients are getting everything they need. We also understand that if you are injured, it may be better if we come to you. We will travel throughout eastern Ontario to your home, hospital, or rehabilitative centre.
We really feel strongly about the team approach and helping as much as we possibly can. You can’t do this alone.

Most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency basis. This means that the injury 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. Personal injury lawyers' fees typically range from 20% to 35%.
The average settlement amount for a personal injury case depends on several factors including liability, age, extent of injuries, salary etc.. It’s best you consult one of our Ottawa personal injury 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 personal injury claim.
It’s important you have confidence in the personal injury lawyer you hire. A couple of important questions to ask are:
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…
Our Ottawa injury lawyers will travel to your home, hospital, or rehabilitation centre throughout eastern Ontario.
