FAQ - Personal Injury Litigation

I’ve been in a car accident, now what?

  1. Seek Medical Attention: The first thing to focus on is your health and recovery. Often times we don’t feel our injuries immediately following a collision, because of the adrenaline released as a natural defensive and protective reaction. It is important to seek medical attention regardless of whether you are actually feeling any pain. If you do not need emergency care, it is a good idea to attend at a walk-in facility or better yet your family doctor as soon as possible.
  2. Report the Accident: Report the accident in as detailed manner as possible, including how the collision happened, where, the speed the vehicles were travelling, provide names of any witnesses, estimates of vehicle damage, and an indication of any of your symptoms. If police did not attend the scene proceed to the nearest motor vehicle collision reporting centre, and advise all the other drivers involved to do so.
  3. Notify your insurance company: Advise the insurer that you have been in an accident and provide them with the insurance details of the other vehicles involved.
  4. Contact a qualified lawyer: It is important to seek the advice of a qualified lawyer early on in the process, who can inform you of your rights and entitlements to health benefits, and help you ensure you get the benefits you need. You may have a claim against any at fault driver, it is important to know your rights early as there are time sensitive deadlines to preserve your rights.

I’ve been injured, how long do I have to make a claim?

Depending on the type of injury and the location, different time limits apply. If you are hurt in a car accident, there are two types of claims involved.  No-fault benefits from your own insurer require you to apply as soon as possible.  This will cover things like medical expenses, and possibly some other benefits.

For all injury cases, the time limit to start a lawsuit against the at-fault persons is two years from the date of the accident. You should be aware that if your injury occurs on public property you may have to provide written notice to the municipality within ten days of the injury.

If injured on the job the timelines are also short for reporting to workers’ compensation authorities. Because of the various different timeline requirements, it is critical to contact a lawyer as soon as possible after your injury to ensure that these time limits are met and your rights are protected.

How do I know if I have an injury claim?

If your injuries are serious and there may be someone else at fault, then it is likely that you have a claim.  In the case of car accident’s where the injuries are whiplash soft tissue injuries, it will take time for our team to determine if you have a case that will lead to a compensation.  We will work with you to monitor your health status carefully and preserve your rights along the way.

There are often situations where someone is injured and they do not know whether they have a claim. It is a good idea to talk to a lawyer, regardless of whether or not you think you have a claim, so that they can provide the proper insight to determine if someone else is at fault for your injuries.

At Kelly + Singh our initial consultation is always free. We will sit down with you to discuss your situation and advise you on the best way to proceed.

How much is my claim worth?

Determining your right to any compensation after an injury depends on many factors, most importantly the focus is on how the injury affects your life both now and into the future. This includes how the injury has affected your ability to earn an income, perform your usual tasks and chores around your home, the effect it has had on your family relationships, and your need for ongoing medical care and treatment, among other things. This determination will be unique to each case.

Usually it takes time to properly determine what the long term impact of any serious injury will be. We will advise you as your case progresses as to what you can realistically expect can be recovered for you. We’ll be there for you every step of the way.

How much does it cost to pursue a personal injury claim?

We handle personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that there is no upfront cost to you for us to pursue your case. We charge a fee based on a percentage of any recovery that we obtain for you. This is the short answer. Let us sit down with you and provide you with a detailed explanation of how our contingency fee retainer works, free of charge.

How long does it take to process my claim?

This is a difficult question to answer, as every case is different.  The court process can take a long time to work through the various stages, but it is also important to ensure we have a good idea about the extent of your injuries and how they affect your current and future quality of life, in order to fairly assess your case.

In rare cases, we may settle a claim with an insurance adjuster before  even starting a lawsuit, but more often insurers will not settle until much further along in your case. We are sensitive to our clients’ desire to obtain closure of their case and move forward, but we have to balance that with protecting your interests and work toward obtaining the best resolution possible.

Why do I need the help of a lawyer?

Technically any injured person can represent themselves in these types of claims, however the laws of Ontario affecting car accidents are very complicated and change frequently. The government has deliberately passed legislation to discourage many types of claims. There are complicated rules for evidence, and complex procedural rules. When dealing with wealthy insurance companies who can afford to hire highly qualified lawyers in an adversarial legal system, you want a law firm with the same qualifications on your side, who know your rights and understand the law in this area. Contact us to determine whether we can help and provide our experience and knowledge to level the playing field, at no upfront cost to you.

Why should I choose your firm?

At our firm, you don’t just hire one lawyer, you hire a team. We take a collaborative approach to your case, because we believe a team approach provides you with the best possible advice and strategy. We pride ourselves on providing you with exceptional service and making the process clear and transparent, so that you are empowered to make informed decisions every step of the way.
