At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we do our best to make the process of seeking compensation as straightforward, transparent, and uncomplicated as possible. For answers to some of our most frequently asked questions, read below.
Our personal injury lawyers work on a contingency-fee basis, meaning we only get paid if you win your case. A percentage of the settlement you receive will go towards lawyers’ fees. There are no upfront, out-of-pocket payments required.
The length of time it takes to settle a case depends on several factors, including the complexity of the case, the extent of your injuries, and whether the other parties involved are willing to settle. Some cases can be settled in a few months, while others can take years.
In Ontario, generally speaking you have two years from the date of your injury-causing accident to file a claim. However, based on the circumstances of your individual case, this timeline could be subject to additional limitations.
After taking advantage of a free initial consultation with our personal injury lawyers, the strength of your case can be evaluated based on the evidence available and the specific circumstances of your accident. Our personal injury lawyers offer case-specific legal feedback to help you understand the strengths and weaknesses of your case and advise you on legal options that might be available.
The amount of compensation you may be able to receive depends on many different factors, including the severity of your injuries, the resulting financial losses you have incurred (or will incur in the future), and the other party’s liability for your injuries. Our personal injury lawyers help our clients assess the full value of their claims in order to pursue the maximum amount of compensation to which they should be entitled.
No. Our firm is solely dedicated to the representation of injured plaintiffs, not defendants or insurance companies.
The answer to this question depends on the type of benefits you have been receiving from an insurance provider and the terms of the settlement agreement. That said, receiving insurance benefits is different from pursuing a civil claim against a defendant. Therefore, even if you settle your lawsuit against the negligent party responsible for your accident, the benefits payments you receive from an insurer could continue to be made.
Yes. We do our best to ensure that the clients we represent will directly communicate with their lawyer either at the immediate outset of their claims or shortly thereafter.
