Choosing Your Ottawa Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer

If you or a loved one in Eastern Ontario has suffered a spinal cord injury caused by someone else’s negligence, you need a personal injury law firm that is well equipped, experienced and with enough financial clout to fight for all available funding.

Getting the maximum settlement or trial verdict available will make a significant difference in the life of a person with a spinal cord injury.  Here are some factors to consider when choosing your lawyer:

Does the lawyer and the law firm focus on personal injury law?

This question is important for several reasons.

First, you want a personal injury law firm with a team of lawyers, law clerks, investigators and paralegals.  Big cases need big teams of people dedicated to maximizing your result.

Second, you want a law firm that understands that big cases take time.  Sometimes at law firms with competing practice areas, law partners can get frustrated when big cases take too long.  They want to get paid.  At a personal injury law firm like Auger Hollingsworth, we understand the client’s needs and the business model.

Does the lawyer and the law firm have the financial resources to fully pursue your claim?

You need a personal injury law firm that can afford to spend the money necessary to push your case to the limit.  Lawyers can incur $100,000 in expenses (apart from their time) or even much more to get the maximum for your case.  You never want to select a lawyer who cannot afford the experts and other costs associated with maximizing compensation.

Does the lawyer and the law firm have experience with spinal cord injury cases?

You want a lawyer who has previously represented people in Eastern Ontario who have had a spinal cord injury.  Ask the lawyer about their firm’s past successes.  Ask the law firm about challenges in past spinal cord cases and how they overcame those challenges.

A significant injury like a spinal cord injury deserves a law firm with an experienced team that will take all available steps to ensure that every dollar available is secured for your future.
