Have Your Legal Questions Answered
Do I have a case?
If you have been injured because of someone else's carelessness or if your insurance company is wrongfully handling your case, you may have grounds to sue. DG Griffiths in Richmond is here to provide you with counsel leading up to the decision to sue as well as throughout the process of the lawsuit.
How much is my case worth?
The worth of your case depends completely upon the specific circumstances. However, the general categories under which the value will fall include:
- General Damages: This simply refers to the immediate expenses incurred due to your accident or injury, including property (car) damage, ambulance costs, emergency medical care, surgery, prescription medication, etc. It can also refer to non-financial losses such as the loss of enjoyment and the experience of pain and suffering.
- Loss of Wages: This concerns the income you lose while you are unable to work due to your injuries. Depending on whether your recovery is temporary or if you suffered a permanent disability, you will be compensated in part or in whole for the wages you lost because of the inability to work.
- Other Pecuniary Losses: This includes any predicted future or past costs involving the accident such as car expenses, continued medical care, future home care, or housekeeping, etc.
- Family Law Act Claims: Ontario law allows the family members of injury victims to seek their own damages according to the enjoyment, companionship and provision they lost as a result of the accident.
The best way to get an idea of how much your potential case is worth is to talk to an Ontario personal injury lawyer like Derek Griffiths.

How much will it cost me to hire a lawyer?
