Every case is different and the value of a case depends upon a number of factors.
Some of the central factors in determining the value of a claim are the nature of your injuries; the extent of your post-injury recovery; and also the extent to which your injuries are affecting your ability to function in life and at work.
In order to answer these questions we will obtain and review the relevant medical records and financial records. As required we will also obtain opinions from the appropriate medical experts, rehabilitation specialists and occupational therapists to show the nature and extent of your injuries and functional impairments. These will help us determine the value of your losses and the costs of any future medical care you may require.
Another factor that is taken into consideration is how the injury has impacted you financially, including your lost earnings since the injury and into the future. We have accountants to help calculate this.
Finally, last and certainly not the least is compensation for your pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and loss of amenities. A Toronto lawyer will fight to get you the maximum amount of compensation possible.
