Ontario Personal Injury Lawyers, Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth…How long does an Ontario personal injury lawsuit case take to settle?
Well, that’s an excellent question and there isn’t one straight forward answer. The length of time it takes for an Ontario personal injury lawsuit to resolve depends on several factors. The most important determining factors of an Ontario personal injury law suit are:
-The severity of your personal injuries..you will need time to determine the extent of the personal injury
-How quickly information and documents are gathered
-How much cooperation your Ontario personal injury lawyer receives from the insurance defence lawyer
-The recommendations from your medical professionals
-How long it takes to gather all medical records
-If the case settles before trial
-How long it takes to obtain a trial date .
There are many steps along the way designed to reach a settlement without having to go to trial. Most Ontario personal injury law suits settle before having to have a trial. As an Ottawa personal injury lawyer, I have settled close to 100% of all my Ontario personal injury law suits without having to go to trail. There are stages in an Ontario personal injury lawsuit such as mediation, examination for discovery and settlement conferences that are steps in an Ontario personal injury lawsuit designed to avoid a trial. I typically settle most of my Ontario personal injury lawsuits at these stages.
The most important factor in an Ontario personal injury lawsuit in terms of time, is to make sure you take the time to do it right. There is too much at stake not to. You may have your personal injuries for the rest of your life and you and your family need to be properly compensated .

David Hollingsworth discusses what constitutes a personal injury in Ontario.
What is a personal injury ? What compensation for injuries is here in Ontario? Does a personal injury automatically result in compensation? A personal injury may be so severe that it is obvious, while others are not. Some personal injuries are harder to see, yet may be equally as painful and life-changing. The following are some of the more common personal injuries, but do not include all…
spinal cord injury
accident amputations -loss of limbs
orthopedic injuries (broken bones)
lacerations, burns and scarring
pain and suffering
other injuries resulting from an accident
Navigating the insurance process can be confusing. Although these are some of the more common injuries we see, it’s important to note that not all injuries are the same severity and compensation amounts vary. For example, one person may suffer from chronic pain and still be able to work and resume some of the life activities they once enjoyed before their accident. Another person may suffer a chronic pain injury and not be able to return to work and their life is forever changed.
The amount of compensation in Ontario to which an Ontario accident victim is entitled to varies. There are a number of factors that go into determining compensation in Ontario such as severity of injury (physical, mental and psychological), future care and medical needs, loss of past and future income, need for ongoing house-keeping assistance, attendant care and caregiving to which you are entitled to. Experienced Ontario personal injury lawyers work directly with medical doctors, social workers, psychologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, other treating health practitioners to support you and ensure you are getting everything that is needed.
