Steps in an Ontario personal injury lawsuit : What is a settlement conference ?

Ontario personal injury lawyer David Hollingsworth …Steps Ontario personal injury lawsuits: What is an Ontario Settlement Conference ?

Before the Ontario settlement conference, your Ontario personal injury lawyer will prepare on your behalf a settlement conference brief. The settlement brief will outline to both the judge and the insurance company what you are seeking in compensation and provide a history of your injuries. Your settlement brief outlines the evidence and why we believe you are entitled to receive maximum compensation for damages. This is sent for the judge to review prior to the settlement conference. 

Your Ontario personal injury lawyer will attend the settlement conference with you. Your Ontario personal injury lawyer is there to represent you and will present your case to the Ontario court. In turn, they will counsel with you and together you can determine how you want to proceed. Often times, the insurance company will offer to settle at this stage based on what has transpired at the settlement conference.  Only you and your Ontario personal injury lawyer can decide if you accept the settlement. Your Ontario personal injury lawyer will provide you with advice but ultimately the decision will be yours.
