In order to bring a claim forward in Ontario, you must follow a limitation period date. For a great majority of personal injury claims, the limitation period to start a claim is two years from the date of the accident. This limitation period holds great significance to your individual case because if your claim has not been filed within the two years from the date of the accident, you may be in the unfortunate circumstance of not having the ability to seek any type of compensation and remedy for your injuries. It is very important to start your case as soon as possible for a few different reasons, such as having the opportunity to seek out witnesses; to have the greatest recollection of the events that occurred; to begin building your medical file, including all injuries sustained and recommendations for recovery from your physicians; and to start gathering facts that will assist in claiming the appropriate amount for your specific case.
If you are filing a tort claim, you will be eligible for damages for pain and suffering. This pain and suffering damages will allow you to claim all future costs for any type of treatment you or your loved ones may need, out of pocket expenses, loss of income, and more.
Azimi Law works on contingency fees. This means that you do not have to pay legal costs until a settlement has been reached. If a settlement is not reached, you alleviate yourself from the financial burden of incurred costs. You may be wondering what the reason behind such a retainer is and what benefits our firm gains from such retainers. The answer is simple. We do not benefit from contingency fees. However, we are interested in making the process easier for you, the victim, by taking away the financial burden of fighting your case. You are and will be a priority as a client, allowing us to focus on your case and allowing you to focus on your recovery.
