The lawyers at Aaron Waxman & Associates are experienced with Disability, Personal Injury and Employment claims.
If you have been injured due to the negligence of someone else, you should consult with a personal injury lawyer.
The most common kind of personal injury is caused by a motor vehicle accident. Whether it is a car, motorcycle, bus or bicycle accident, there may be significant compensation available to you. New motor vehicle insurance regulations came into effect in Ontario on September 1, 2010. Our lawyers will be happy to discuss what this could mean to you.
There are time limits that one should be aware of if you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident. Under the Insurance Act, an action for loss or damage from bodily injury or death arising from the use or operation of an automobile shall not be commenced unless the Plaintiff has served written notice of the intention to commence the action on the Defendant within 120 days after the incident. Under the Limitation Act, a proceeding or law suit shall not be commenced in respect of a claim after the second anniversary of the day on which the claim was discovered (usually the day of the accident).
Many people are concerned about the costs of a lawyer. Affordability should not be a concern for people that seek our help. Subject to certain exceptions, we will take on your case and agree to be paid only if we are successful in achieving a settlement or Judgment at trial. That means you would only be required to pay the lawyers fees if a settlement is achieved or Judgment is obtained at trial. If the case is not successful then you would not be charged any fees.
