David Hollingsworth is a personal injury lawyer in Ottawa, working with Goldberg Stroud LLP, a well established law firm for the past 50 years. For over 10 years, David and his team have been dedicated to helping people throughout Ontario who have suffered a serious injury and families who have lost a loved one through the negligence of others (wrongful death). We never represent insurance companies.
Throughout the years, David has successfully represented many clients who have been severely injured due to motor vehicle accidents either as passengers or drivers; due to a car accident; a motorcycle accident, a bicycle accident, or pedestrians, slip and falls, and historical sexual assault (sexual abuse). David regularly keeps himself up to date on developing legal, medical and rehabilitation issues by working closely with medical doctors, psychologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, other treating health practitioners and the support network involved with his clients.
The respect and recognition earned through years of effective and successful practice have resulted in many advantageous and lucrative settlements for his clients in a timely manner, often without the cost of extensive litigation and trial. His first goal is always to get the maximum compensation for his clients as quickly as possible, however, where appropriate, David is prepared to take a matter to trial to achieve justice.
David and his team of professional staff recognize the tremendous stress caused by an accident. These are unexpected and tragic events. David realizes that the last thing that an injured person and his or her loved ones should have to worry about is completing complicated paperwork and dealing with insurance companies or other institutions which may not have the client’s best interests at heart. David and his team help complete the paperwork and deals with the insurance claim on your behalf.
David and his knowledgeable staff know all of the accident benefits that you are entitled to and they know how to get them. There are many accident benefits available to someone with injuries from a motor vehicle accident (car, motorcycle, boat), a slip and fall injury, or injuries from an assault that most people don’t know about. Let David explain these benefits to you and help fight to get them for you.
David will meet with you at no charge to discuss the circumstances surrounding your accident and injuries. David will meet with you at your home or at your hospital. David is also pleased to provide his services in French, English or with a team of translators and interpreters he works with who can attend meetings and translate in many other languages.
David cares about your case and will work diligently to achieve the best result for you.
