Derek Wilson Personal Injury Law Firm Practice Areas
Experienced Hamilton Auto Accident Law Firm
A personal injury can happen anywhere and anytime with a range in severity from mild to catastrophic. If you’ve suffered a personal injury, you know the extent to which it can affect your quality of life for you and your family and impact your financial freedom.
It is tough when you’re dealing with an injury to think about a lawsuit, and you may be asking, “Can I sue?” As an experienced personal injury lawyer I will guide you with what’s possible and the relevant deadlines for filing critical information. Filing a lawsuit or a personal injury claim is a complex process and I’ll simplify everything for you and explain what you need to know.
The bottom line is that, if you’ve been injured, there may be compensation available to help you cope. My job is to see your case through to the end. Let me fight for you and handle the stressful details so that you can focus on what’s most important: your recovery and your family.
You’ve just been through a traumatic experience. The burden of upfront costs should be the last of your worries. That’s why we offer a free initial consultation and then once you have retained our law firm to represent you in your claim, no payments are required until I have successfully recovered money on your behalf. If we aren’t successful, there is no cost.
We use a fixed percentage contingency fee agreement with a maximum contingency rate of 33% plus HST based on the total damages recovered. There will also be disbursements plus HST that are expenses we pay out on your behalf, and vary from client to client based on the complexity of your specific situation. We will also provide you with the contingency fee agreement in writing so that our legal fees are transparent. Additional information about contingency fees can be found in the Law Society’s Contingency fees: What you need to know information guide. While every case is unique we strive to be open, honest and fair. We do not want surprises at the conclusion of the case for either of us.
