KNOW YOUR RIGHTS & OPTIONS

Were You Hurt In A Car Accident?

Thousands of drivers, passengers, cyclists and pedestrians are injured in accidents every year in Ontario. Sadly, most victims have little if any understanding of their legal rights, their insurance policy or the Insurance Act. This is where David Gardiner can help.

Compensation is potentially available for injured persons and their families from a number of different sources. Ontario’s driving accident laws enable accident victims to receive both accident benefits as well as to sue the at-fault party for damages. Knowing the ins & outs is key to a fair compensation result.

HELPING TO MAKE YOU WHOLE AGAIN

Standing Up For You, Making Your Voice Heard

If you’ve been the unfortunate victim of a car accident, truck collision, motorcycle wreck or other vehicular incident, it’s your choice whether to deal directly with your insurance company or to hire legal representation.

I encourage people to consult with an attorney first. I can provide you with an honest assessment of your rights and your potential for compensation. In certain cases, it will be better for you to go through insurance; I’ll gladly let you know if that’s in your best interest. Often I can help you get more. In either case, I want you to fully understand your rights and options.

Frequently Asked Questions

HOW LONG WILL MY CLAIM TAKE?

There are many factors that come into play so it is difficult to predict exactly how long any given case will take. However, the majority of my personal injury and disability cases resolve within 12 months to 2 years from the date of the incident or claim.

HOW MUCH WILL THIS COST ME?

Most personal injury and disability cases we handle are done by way of a Contingency Fee Agreement. In short, this means that you do not pay us any legal fees until we successfully resolve your case. We also take care of all expenses until the matter is completed. Everything is explained fully and in writing so there will never be any surprises to you.

ARE THERE ANY TIME LIMITS TO BRING MY CLAIM?

Most personal injury actions – such as car accidents and slip & falls – must be brought within 2 years from the date of the incident. In some cases, you must also give early written notice to the potential defendant(s). Therefore, it is prudent to call a lawyer right away after any incident in which you hurt yourself.

WHY ARE YOU SO GOOD AT WHAT YOU DO?

Great question – thank you. I have a real passion for the practice of law and, more importantly, helping people. Not only do I love what I do, but I have many years of study and education within and related to the legal profession. On top of this, I have handled a countless number of personal injury cases over the years and this has given me the practical experience a lawyer needs to excel in this business.

If someone is injured and needs legal assistance, I will be there for them. Then I will do everything possible to ensure that their life is made easier and the claim is successful.

HOW MUCH IS MY ONTARIO PERSONAL INJURY CASE WORTH?

Every case is different. However, generally speaking, in personal injury cases you are entitled to compensation (money) for such things as pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, disfigurement, past and future loss of income, loss of ability to earn income, loss of competitive advantage, past and future medical and rehabilitation expenses, loss of housekeeping capacity, and other various special damages.

Our goal is to maximize the overall compensation you receive from your personal injury claim, however the damages are characterized.

WHAT IS AN EXAMINATION FOR DISCOVERY?

If you have started a personal injury lawsuit, you will likely have to attend an Examination for Discovery at some point during the course of the litigation.

The Examination for Discovery is a pre-trial examination that allows the lawyers to find out what each side has to say about the case. Every answer is recorded and a transcript of your testimony is prepared. It is important to understand that what you say may be used against you at the trial of your action. The examination will usually be held at an official court reporting office, i.e., not in a courtroom. Typically, only you, your lawyer, the opposing lawyer, and a court reporter will be present at the examination. An examination can last for several hours and you will be asked a number of questions about your personal injury claim, including questions about liability (the facts of the incident or collision) and damages (your injuries or losses).
