Why Marc Quinn?
Marc Quinn of Quinn Thiele Mineault Grodzki LLP, Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyers offers numerous benefits to victims of accidents and injuries in Ottawa.
Trained Personal Injury Advocates
It is my belief that without an experienced personal injury lawyer to represent your interests and protect your rights, your chances of obtaining a fair settlement are slim.
When faced with a personal injury claim, you will be facing large insurance companies, well trained insurance representatives and experienced defence lawyers who will likely all be reluctant to pay you maximum compensation for your injuries. Only an experienced plaintiff focused personal injury lawyer can level the playing field.
Your chances of obtaining a fair settlement when advancing a personal injury case are significantly increased if you retain a personal injury lawyer who has experience negotiating with insurance companies and their lawyers, can maneuver through the legal minefield of personal injury law and the insurance system, and who is prepared and able to litigate for a fair judgment in court if necessary. This is what I and the lawyers of my law firm offer.
My law firm is a strong advocate for using alternative dispute resolution mechanisms to settle files without the need to litigate in court. Our lawyers are trained in mediation, negotiation and facilitation. If litigation is required, the lawyers of my law firm are indeed litigators and trained in trial advocacy. Our lawyers stay current with the ever changing personal injury, litigation, insurance, disability and procedural laws associated with advocating our client’s claims. Our lawyers are members of respected law associations such as the Advocates’ Society, Ontario Bar Association and Ontario Trial Lawyers Association and regularly participate in continuing legal education events to stay current on Ontario injury laws.
We are convinced that our dedicated focus on personal injury law leads to better service, superior representation and the best results for our injured clients.
If you have been injured in any way as a result of the negligence of another person, you most likely have a lot of questions. It is not always easy to get straight honest answers when you need it most, but we are here to help you explore and understand your legal options. We answer your questions honestly and right away.
We will meet with you free of charge and explain how we can protect your rights, advance your interests.
It is essential early on that you understand your rights and eligibility for compensation no matter how or where you were injured.
We openly answer all of your questions and provide additional vital information necessary for you to be protected.
Free Case Assessment
In addition to answering all of your questions at a free consultation, we obtain all the details of your case and explain how we can advance your injury case to a successful outcome.
There are many facts we will need to know in order to determine your rights and inform you as to what compensation you may be able to claim. We fully assess your case and let you know whether you have a legitimate case worth pursuing and explain how we can best pursue your claims so that you receive fair compensation for your injuries.
If you are unable to come to our office, we can meet you in your home or visit you in the hospital. We will do whatever we can to help you through this difficult time.
Contingency Fee Arrangements
No Fees Unless You Are Successful!
Our lawyers recognize that injury victims who retain our services have suffered a serious personal injury and are already facing many challenges. In many cases, victims of accidents are unable to work causing them to suffer reduced or total loss of income which can become an enormous burden on them and their families. At our law firm, we recognize and appreciate that our clients suffer greatly as a result of injuries sustained in accidents. We understand that in most cases, our clients are suffering and are under enormous financial stress.
That is why we offer a contingency fee arrangement for the personal injury cases we handle. Under a contingency fee arrangement, our clients are not required to pay any fees unless the case is successful. If the client does not recover any monies from the lawsuit, we do not charge legal fees. If the case is successful, we charge a percentage of the recovery, usually 30%.
In a contingency fee arrangement, our lawyers and clients share the risks of the file together. Our lawyers are personally and financially dedicated to the file.
We prefer the contingent fee arrangement because it allows all injury victims the ability to hire an experienced personal injury law firm to represent them.
The interests of our clients and the firm are aligned in that there is a built in incentive to maintain expenses low, resolve claims efficiently and quickly and recover as much as possible.
The lawyers at our firm provide their time, staff and their experience and the client does not have to incur up front fees and outofpocket expense. The arrangement also benefits our clients by effectively spreading the risk of litigation. Under a contingent fee arrangement, our lawyers share the risk and are only paid a fee if the case is successful.
Because we share the risks, you can rest assured that if we accept your case, we believe in you and in your case and we complete the work necessary to obtain a positive result.
We reduce the contingency fee arrangement to a written agreement signed by us and the client.
Focus, Experience, Cutting Edge and Financial Resources
Our lawyers are focused, experienced, trained and supported by specialized support staff and third parties needed to prosecute a personal injury action. Our law firm has the financial and personnel resources required to succeed against wellfinanced insurance companies and experienced insurance professionals.
We use cutting edge technology to assist us in pursuing our client’s claims both in the court room and at the office. Our lawyers remotely access our law firm’s databases remotely, use legal database resources such as Quicklaw and Westlaw, use specialized scanning software and use a litigation support and practice management software such as Korbitec civil litigator and PC Law.
Processing a significant personal injury case to trial can require tens of thousand of dollars in time and disbursements, require the retention of expensive medical and non medical experts, and other needed expensive specialized resources. We have the financial means to pay for litigation and trial costs, without having to cut any corners. Lawyers who do not have the financial and other resources may settle your file too early and for less than you deserve. When our law firm makes the commitment to represent a client, we also commit to expanding the financial resources that are necessary to maximize recovery for our clients. In any given year, we spend millions in time, resources and disbursements supporting our clients. We have earned a reputation for taking on the complex and challenging litigation matters and delivering successful results.
