Many clients often ask us about slip and fall settlements in Ontario. How do they work? What do I, the client, have to prove? What are some case law examples of settlement amounts? Here at Grillo Barristers we hope that the following article can help shed some light on these questions.

Slip and Fall Settlements in Ontario
Claims often settle without the need to go to trial. Your potential success in reaching a justified and fair settlement will depend on a number of factors, including the facts at hand, prior case law, the competency of your legal team, and how well documented your evidentiary record (of the accident) is. For some tips on what to do after a slip and fall accident, see our article here.

It is also imperative that you speak to a legal professional as soon as possible, for several reasons. First, you want to ensure the at-fault parties are placed on notice so that evidence is preserved. Second, you must ensure that your legal claim is filed promptly and properly before the end of the statute of limitations. Third, by speaking with a lawyer we can analyze your case on the facts and compare with other like cases to develop a settlement strategy. Finally, with the advice from our partners in the insurance and medical industries, we can get reasonable estimates of future care and rehabilitation costs, as well as assigning values on pain and suffering.

For a more comprehensive survey of the damages awarded in personal injury cases, please speak to a lawyer. At Grillo Barristers we have access to a compendium of damages awarded in such cases and can help analyze and compare your cases with historical settlement payouts based on the type of injury and type of accident.

As always, our informational blogs should not be taken as a replacement for legal advice. If you have any questions or feel that you might have a case, do not hesitate to call us today!

My wife & I had the pleasure of working with Alexander Lee and Ikbir Khongura. They were excellent in research and information, They both were on time and ready.. very professional and determined to get the best results for us. They worked very hard and made sure we as clients were comfortable, happy and well taken care of! Most importantly they are fighters, they made sure our best interest were put first and our needs were met. A lot of lawyers don't really care, but they made sure justice was served! They did an amazing job in taking care of us and will be recommending their services!

From the moment Grillo Barristers took on my case, until I was able to come to my desired settlement, they have been nothing but amazing, caring and professional. I had an amazing team working on my case, and couldn't believe how well and timely my file was handled. My lawyer Anthony Andreopoulos, with the tremendous help of Justine and Zachary, constantly kept me updated with every action that was taken on the file and made me feel at ease knowing my case was in good hands. I couldn't have asked for a better firm to handle my file, so thank you guys so much for everything, I appreciate it more than you know!

I worked with Rachelle Mitri and her team and I found the company in general and Rachelle in particular to be extremely professional, while being nice people to work with. Ms. Mitri kept me informed of my case. And guided me through an unfamiliar system with great diligence. I always felt valued and respected. Great Lawyers !

It's unbelievable how long it takes for the insurance companies to settle. They live by the fact that they can outlast you! Don't give up! Hang in there! Stefanie and her team worked hard and did an excellent job. I received the best settlement available!!!

Where do I begin?? I am not usually one to leave reviews on services but this one is definitely an exception. From start to finish, I felt incredibly comfortable having my claim in Grillo's hands. I felt as though the team was in complete control and I could just sit back and receive updates when necessary. With the utmost confident I can say that Grillo Barristers is the best personal injury law firm in Toronto. The process was quick, cheap and stress free. I must especially thank Lauren Sivitilli. Having very limited knowledge of lawsuits, Lauren was able to perfectly break the processes down for me and educate me on my claim. She was quick to answer emails addressing any concerns and always kept me up to date. I will definitely be recommending Grillo Barristers services to my family, friends and coworkers. Amazing!
