The Role of a Toronto Premises Liability Lawyer

A lawyer has several key roles when it comes to Toronto premises liability cases. The first, and one of the most important, occurs at the initial consultation. At this meeting, the lawyer will tell the person whether they think the person has a case.

To discover the other roles a lawyer takes on in a Toronto premises liability case, it is important to consult with legal counsel as soon as possible. A premises liability lawyer in Toronto can gather the elements of your case and help to recover successfully on your behalf.

Proving the Case

It is a crucial role of an attorney in a Toronto premises liability case to determine whether the person is going to be able to prove that somebody else did something that caused their injuries, and whether that is going to meet the requisite threshold to prove legal liability.

Another crucial role of a Toronto premises liability lawyer is to take that burden and stress off an individual’s plate, and ease their mind so they can focus on recovery.

Preserving Evidence

In premises liability cases, there are things that need to be done immediately to preserve the evidence. Sometimes, this is to meet very quick notice periods, which are as quick as 10 days after the accident. A lawyer will do that for a person so that the person can focus on their recovery.

For example, a lawyer can find out who owns this property and all of the potential people or companies looking after the property who may have had a hand in causing a person’s injury. The lawyer will then preserve evidence.

They will take pictures of the hazard that caused a person’s injury, gather witness statements from people who witnessed the accident, and preserve the evidence in terms of a person’s injuries. They will get that person’s medical records, x-rays, invoices, and receipts from any money spent.

They will then gather all of those documents that show how the accident happened and what a person’s injuries are. They will use that evidence to give that individual an opinion and advocate for that individual to receive adequate and fair compensation under the law.

Contacting Medical Professionals

The last role that premises liability lawyers will fill, which is important, is to be in contact with doctors who provide medical opinions. Those doctors are impartial and will provide opinions on what a person’s injuries are, how they affect a person’s everyday life, how they affect their household chores, how they affect a person’s work, how long they are going to last, as well as what treatment a person needs due to those injuries. That is important information that a person needs to know to make sure they are receiving fair and adequate compensation for their injuries.

That is all important information that a person needs to know to make sure they are receiving fair and adequate compensation for their injuries.

Giving Advice

A premises liability lawyer in Toronto will provide a person with advice on potential benefits that may be available to that person, particularly if that person is not working, to make sure that that individual has some income while they are recovering from their injuries and to make that a person’s treatment, whenever possible, is being covered by insurance benefits and not coming out of their pocket. Toronto premises liability lawyers will also take on all of the upfront costs for a person, such as medical reports, medical opinions, and expert opinions, which can be $5,000 to $7,000 each. They will take on all of those upfront costs for that person to make sure that their case is proceeding at it should.
