Our Ottawa personal injury lawyers care..

Our Ottawa injury lawyers believe that one of the main reasons we are so successful in helping our clients is that we really do care about our clients and their families. We have developed a good understanding of what our clients and their families are going through.
Rebuilding a life after an accident and serious injury is one of the most difficult things one can do. Our Ottawa injury lawyers understand that many of things that were once taken for granted can no longer be taken for granted. Simple things like walking up stairs, doing your own groceries, holding down a job can sometimes be unrealistic following an accident. We often explain to our clients that they can’t be mad at themselves for not being able to do what they once did, before their accident.
Over the years, we have come to realise that our clients need to hear this and appreciate the advise.  We believe we help our clients heal sometimes just by simply listening , allowing them to vent and then brainstorming solutions to everyday problems with our clients and their families.
Our Ottawa injury lawyers understand.  We care and we’re here to help.

Ottawa accident results in compensation for soft tissue injury.

Our Ottawa personal injury lawyer settle cases almost daily. Here is a case Denis Alisic recently settled for our client , without having had to go to court.

Ottawa Accident Scenario concussioninjury

Our Ottawa injury lawyers set out to help get our client what she needed: support and compensation for soft tissue injury. Our Ottawa injury team worked closely with “TP” following her accident. Our goal is to always  ensure all our clients receive maximum compensation for their injuries and TP was no different. . TP was a 43-year-old single woman from Ottawa, Ontario.  One day, she was driving her vehicle when suddenly she was rear ended.

Injuries Resulting From Accident

As a result of her accident, TP suffered soft tissues injuries to her neck and a head concussion. Unfortunately, her head concussion symptoms and neck pain did not resolve. She continued to experience sensitivities to light, noise and difficulties with attention and concentration. Despite her injuries, she was able to return to full time work as a teacher but with difficulties due to her symptoms.

A Soft tissue injury is known as the damage of muscles, ligaments and tendons throughout the body. Common soft tissue injuries usually occur from a sprain, strain, a one off blow resulting in a contusion or overuse of a particular part of the body. Many car accidents result in soft tissue injuries. Often times, soft tissue injuries can result in pain, swelling, bruising and loss of function. Our Ottawa personal injury lawyers often meet with people who are suffering from a soft tissues injury.

Compensation for soft tissue injury

Although TP was able to resume her life, our Ottawa personal injury team knew that down the road our client may need compensation. There are some cases where soft tissues never completely heal and maximum compensation is needed . After private settlement conference, we were able to get the insurance company to settle. TP received $107,000 from the tort action and continues to receive monthly Ontario Accident Benefits to cover the costs for treatments related to her injuries.


How much compensation for a hit from behind accident ?

Ottawa injury lawyer settles case in a hit from behind accidenthitfrombehindaccident

Accident Scenario:

Rear-end collisions or ” hit from behind accidents” are some of the most common types of accidents we see as Ottawa injury lawyers. In most cases, when a vehicle hits  you from behind, it is usually them who is at fault. Very rarely will the driver who was hit  be found at fault. The rationale behind this is that typically all drivers are supposed to leave enough room in front of their vehicle that allows for enough room for the driver to come to a complete stop should the vehicle in front of them suddenly need to brake and stop.  Our Ottawa injury lawyers were contacted about an accident of this nature. Our client  “YT” was involved in a car accident that left her injured. YT was a 41 year old mother of two children. One day she was driving her vehicle when suddenly she was hit from behind at approximately 50 km/h. You might not think 50km/hr is very fast; however when a vehicle travelling at that speed and hits another vehicle, the results can be devastating.

Injuries Resulting From Accident:

No two accidents are alike. Our client was involved in a serious accident that left her  suffering from chronic pain in her neck, back and shoulder, post concussive symptoms, major depression, anxiety and pain disorder. Thankfully, she was able to go back to work on a modified and part time basis. Hopefully over time, her injuries will continue to heal and she will be able to return to full-time work when she is ready.

Compensation for Injury:

Our Ottawa injury lawyers are very experienced in Ontario personal injury law. After a mandatory mediation session, Ottawa injury lawyer Denis Alisic was able to negotiate a favorable settlement with the insurance company in the amount of $240,000.00. This meant no trial and our client was able to receive compensation in a short amount of time. Currently she continues to receive monthly medical and rehabilitation accident benefits from her insurance company .

If you have been injured in a “hit from behind” accident, you are likely not at fault. If this accident has caused you injuries, then you are likely in need of Accident Benefits such as medical and rehabilitation benefits and income replacement benefits. It’s important that you explore your options and make an informed decision. Our Ottawa injury lawyers are available for FREE CONSULTATIONS if you are looking for advice and whether or not there is support and compensation available to you.

*Please note: Past results are not necessarily indicative of future results and that the amount recovered and other litigation outcomes will vary according to the facts in individual cases.


Compensation for motorcycle accident on highway 17

Ottawa Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcycle accidents can be serious and the injuries are often long lasting.

Motorcycle accidents can be serious and the injuries are often long lasting.

Accident Scenario:

Ottawa is surrounded by many highways and open roads.  As summer wraps up and fall is in full swing, the number of motorcycle drivers decreases. Our spring, summer and fall weather are amazing and allow for more vehicles on the road; in particular , motorcycles. The latest statistics from Statistics Canada show that in 2013 there were 198 motorcyclists fatalities and the percentage of fatalities and serious injuries by road user class was 10.3% fatalities and 11.6 % serious injuries. The Globe and Mail also reported that Motorcycle riders in Canada are at least 15 times more likely to be involved in a crash than automobile drivers. Are you surprised by this statistic ? Our Ottawa injury lawyer aren’t.

It goes without saying that most motorcycle accidents result in very serious injuries. Motorcyclists are a lot less protected when it comes to accidents. Sometimes, even at slower speeds, a motorcycle accident can result in very serious injuries. Our Ottawa injury lawyers often receive calls and requests for free consultations.  Often times it is tricky to determine who is at fault, what will insurance cover and what compensation motorcycle drivers are entitled to. One of our Ottawa injury lawyers recently settled a motorcycle accident case.

Injuries Resulting From Accident:

Our client “SH” was a 58 year old male from Brockville who loved to ride his motorcycle. Unfortunately one day, his ride was like none other.  He was on his motorcycle when suddenly the defendant driver turned left in front of him. The accident took place on Highway 17. As a result of the motorcycle accident, SH suffered a fractured femur and tibia requiring open reduction and internal fixation surgeries.

Compensation for Injury:

Our client was an arborist by trade. Unfortunately , the injuries resulting from the motorcycle accident left him unable to work . After mandatory mediation , our Ottawa injury lawyers were able to negotiate on our client’s behalf and reach a very favourable  settlement with the insurance company of the driver who had made the left turn in the amount of $265,000.00 on the tort side of his injury lawsuit. On the Ontario Accident Benefits side of the injury lawsuit, SH continues to receive medical benefits  and rehabilitation benefits from his insurer in addition to weekly income replacement benefits. Our Ottawa injury lawyers were happy to help SH get the compensation he needed, as well as make sure his future medical needs are being covered.

Parking lot accident results in compensation for twisted ankle.

parkinglotaccidentPersonal Injury Lawyer Ottawa

Accident Scenario:

Parking lot injuries can be very serious. Parking lot accidents seem to be reported less often. This is typically because parking lot accidents often result in minor injuries; however, they can be every bit as debilitating. The most common parking lot accidents involve a motor vehicle either hitting a pedestrian or a motor vehicle hitting another motor vehicle.  Another type of parking lot accident is when a pedestrian slips, trips or falls in a parking lot.  The Occupier’s Liability Act S. 3(1)  clearly states that an occupier of premises owes a duty to ensure the safety of those on and entering the property. This means that if the property was not properly maintained in a manner that did not ensure safety, the owner of such property can be help liable for injuries. Perhaps there was black ice, uneven pavement, poor lighting, or uneven ground ? These conditions are often the cause for many parking lot accidents and serious injuries.  Once day, we received a call from a woman who had suffered such an injury. We worked closely with “NB” to ensure she received maximum compensation for her injuries. NB was a 71 year old woman from Gatineau, Quebec. One day she was walking in a parking lot and twisted her ankle in a pot hole which caused her to fall.

Injuries Resulting From Accident:

NB’s injuries were serious and included a  torn tendon in her shoulder and facial bruising. A tendon injury is painful and often persists for a long period of time. It causes a great deal of physical and mental distress for both you and your family and is an unpleasant injury to deal with.

Compensation for Injury:

After tough negotiation we were able to get the insurance company to settle at mandatory mediation session. This means our client did not have to go to court or trial, which was of great relief. If you have been injured in a parking lot accident, it’s important you know your rights and consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer. If you are able, at the scene of the parking lot accident,  take photos showing your injuries, the conditions of the parking lot accident site, where the accident occurred, what time of day it was and what the  weather conditions were at the time of the accident. If there were witnesses, try to get the names and contact information of anyone who may have witnessed your accident or the conditions surrounding your parking lot accident.  Try to write out an detailed report of what happened and keep records of all medical appointments and expenses, along with dates of medical appointments and any medical professionals who treated you. Bring all this information with you when you meet your personal injury lawyer for a free consultation .

Laser treatment accident results in compensation for neck burns.

Ottawa injury lawyer discusses laser treatments and compensation for burn injuries.facial laser treatment

There are all sorts of laser treatment therapies on the market these days.  It’s important that one does complete research before seeking out such treatments. The reality is that laser treatments can also result in very serious accidents. The product or machine can fail, technicians may not be well trained. Lawsuits relating to injury from laser surgery are on the rise, and physicians have been held liable even if they were not personally operating the machinery or performing the procedures.

Health Canada watches over the sale, importation and labeling of laser machines that are used for various treatments such as hair removal and the province of Ontario directs the local public health units to maintain a standard for the equipment such as sanitary  conditions. Sadly there isn’t a body that regulates the actual use of the laser machines that emit high-intensity light and can cause severe and permanent injuries.  Yet, these machines can be found all over Ontario and Canada in physician’s offices, medical clinics, hair salons and spas.

Accident Scenario:

Our Ottawa injury team was contacted by a 43 year old woman from Cornwall. One day she was receiving laser skin tightening treatment. Like many, she figured  there would be no harm in seeking a skin tightening treatment. In fact, it would bring her positive results.   She was wrong . Unfortunately following the treatment she sustained second degree burns to her neck which required immediate medical treatment. Our Ottawa injury lawyers worked closely with “CC” to ensure she received maximum compensation for her burn injuries.

Injuries Resulting From Accident:

Our client suffered second degree burn injuries to her neck area from a laser treatment accident. Burns can cause extensive and devastating injuries and Facial burns or neck burns can vary from relatively minor injuries  to severe debilitating injuries. Thankfully in our client’s case, her burns were second degree and not all layers of the skin were destroyed.

Compensation for Injury:

Our Ottawa injury lawyer’s set out to help our client and negotiated on her behalf. Eventually, we were able to persuaded and present our facts to the insurance company and we settled CC’s case  a private settlement conference without having to go through prolonged litigation proceedings.  The result was our client received the compensation she needed and deserved.

If you have been injured as a result of laser treatment, it’s important you know your rights.  Contact an experienced personal injury lawyer who knows about burn injuires and laser treatments and find out what options are available to you.

Pembroke accident results in compensation for twisted ankle.

Pembroke Accident: Slip and Fall

compensation for fractured ankle

compensation for twisted ankle

Accident Scenario:

Our Ottawa personal injury lawyers received a call one day from a woman. She was going about her daily routine when suddenly she slipped and injured herself. She was unsure of her rights. Can you sue for a slip and fall accident? Who would she sue? Would an insurance company cover her costs? Would an insurance company compensate her for her injuries? What if she knew the person who owned the property?  These are all valid questions and questions our Ottawa injury lawyers are asked daily.  The most frequent question we get asked is  “How much compensation does one receive for a slip and fall accident? ”  Our personal injury team listened to all her questions and concerns and then came up with a plan. Our lawyers worked closely with “TB” to ensure she received maximum compensation for her orthopedic injuries. TB  was a 40-year-old woman from Pembroke. One day she was going outside to walk her dog. She set out  her back porch stairs when suddenly she slipped off of a step and twisted her right ankle. The porch steps were not maintained properly and were missing a plank thus making them too narrow and contrary to the building code.

Injuries Resulting From Accident:

As a result of her slip and fall accident, TB suffered a chipped bone in her foot which thankfully fully healed following conservative treatment. Not all our clients have such luck. Often times in a slip and fall accident, bones break and never heal quite the same.  What seems like a small fracture or broken bone can end up being life-altering for some.  Thankfully this was not the case for TB.

Compensation for Twisted Ankle Injury:

While every case is different and every injury is different, we were able to help TB get compensation. We worked on behalf of TB and negotiated with the insurance company . We ended up suing her landlord’s insurance company, as well as the property management company’s insurance company. After tough negotiations,  we were able to get the insurance company to settle at a private settlement conference without having to go through prolonged litigation proceedings. Our client was very thankful, as she wanted it to be over and done with.

Accident Scenario

Our injury lawyers in Ottawa worked closely with our client “GP” to ensure she received maximum compensation for her injuries. GP was a 63-year-old woman from Ottawa. One day she was walking in a parking lot and slipped and twisted her right ankle on a freshly painted line during a rain storm. These types of slip and fall accidents are not uncommon. A change in weather can suddenly bring on hazardous situations.  Often times when it rains, the ground can become slippery. Freshly painted ground can cause an even bigger hazard.

Injuries Resulting From Accident

Stores, private residences and municipalities have a responsibility to keep their premises safe.  This means that they must make their property as  reasonably safe as possible to ensure that there are no hazards and that people entering their property are not at risk to serious injury, as the result of a slip and fall or trip and fall accident. Unfortunately in our client’s situation, the freshly painted line did cause a serious hazard when it became wet and consequently our client suffered very serious personal injuries,  including a right ankle fracture.

Compensation for Injury

A slip and fall accident can be caused my many different things. Typically, most slip and fall accident cases we see involve:

  • cracks in pavement or uneven sidewalks
  • stairs that are not to code or dangerous
  • wet or damp floors
  • mats that are not lying flat or not secured properly
  • icy or snow on walkways
  • item not properly secured and fall off shelves in stores
  • property that has not regularly been inspected and repaired
  • items that have fallen on the floor in stores ( example : someone who slips on a grape)
  • shopping cart accidents

These are just some of the more common slip and fall accidents we see. Our client was injured on someone else’s property. Thankfully her injuries healed well , after she treated her injury correctly with proper rehabilitation and physiotherapy. We were able to help have her treatments covered and after tough negotiation we were able to get the insurance company to settle at a private settlement conference. GP received $ 35,000 from the tort action . Thankfully most bone fractures heal well and quickly. Our client was one of the lucky ones whose injuries can heal. Not all slip and fall accidents end this way.

Ottawa car accident

Ottawa car accident lawyers offer free consultations.

As car accident lawyers, we often meet with people suffering from soft tissue injuries. These injuries can be debilitating.

Typically, our clients suffer from lower back soft tissue injuries.  Our Ottawa injury lawyers believe that a lower back soft tissue injury is more common because the lower back supports most of the body’s weight and is therefore more vulnerable to injury.
