How can a Paralegal help with my Ontario personal injury case?
After suffering a serious accident, there are many details to be considered and a great deal of administration to be undertaken while you are healing and getting back on track. Seeking compensation for your injuries can be a process that can require a great deal of your time and energy to administer. Within our firm, we have been able to create an efficient system that can save time and money for the client over the long run, by encouraging clients to use the services of our paralegal team.
A licensed paralegal in Ontario can help reduce the cost of your personal injury lawsuit
A licensed Ontario paralegal can assist with your case and help to reduce the expense of managing your personal injury lawsuit. Just like our Ontario Injury lawyers they are governed by the Paralegal Rules of Conduct by the Law Society of Upper Canada. The Law Society of Upper Canada became responsible for regulating the paralegal profession as a result of amendments to the Law Society Act brought about by Bill 14 on May 1st, 2007. These regulatory bodies allow us to offer clients peace of mind knowing that our team is professional, recognized and working daily with a personal injury lawyer or certified specialist in civil litigation to bring a swift and satisfactory resolution to your claim.
