Your First Meeting

What to expect

During the first meeting with the Harrison Pensa Personal Injury Group, you can expect to have a thorough conversation regarding your case, in a relaxed atmosphere with open-minded members of our knowledgeable personal injury team. We know that each case is unique, so our approach takes full advantage of our team’s extensive personal injury litigation experience combined with our friendly and helpful law clerks and legal assistants to walk you through the process from start to finish. Whether you are dealing with complicated legal issues or are needing compensation or recovering assistance after an accident and require immediate help, you can expect a committed and determined relationship with our skilled lawyers whose primary goal is to protect your interests.

 

How we can help you

We fully understand that suffering an injury due to an accident can be life-altering, and many accident victims are left feeling confused, sad, and helpless. The duty of a good lawyer is to calm these fears and find reasonable, fair solutions to all the problems that can arise after the accident.

Our skilled and experienced personal injury lawyers want to help you put the pieces back together by assisting you in overcoming the challenges of accident recovery and securing fair compensation.

 

Free initial consultation

Because we so strongly feel that your story is important and should be heard, your initial consultation is free. During this first meeting, not only will we learn about you, but you will have an opportunity to learn more about us and our process, such as specific documents and other items you would need to gather which pertain to your case. During this initial consultation, you are invited to freely ask any questions you may have, where you will receive knowledgeable answers as we strive to make this journey as stress-free as possible.

 

You Don’t Pay any Fees Unless you Recover Compensation

We represent injured persons on a contingency fee basis in most personal injury and medical/dental/professional malpractice cases. This means that we will not be paid any legal fees unless we recover compensation for your injuries and losses. Our fees are usually charged as a percentage of the monetary compensation paid to you. The fee percentage charged will depend on several factors, including the nature of your injuries, the risks involved in your case, and whether your claim settles or proceeds to trial or arbitration.

The Law Society of Ontario requires law firms to publish the maximum fee percentage that they charge. At Harrison Pensa LLP, the maximum fee percentage that we charge for personal injury cases is 30%. For medical/dental/professional malpractice cases, which are usually complex, the maximum fee that we charge is 35%. Your fee may be lower depending on the nature of your case.

The Law Society of Ontario has prepared a consumer guide that explains contingency fees:

Each case is unique, and we’ll work tirelessly to ensure the best possible outcome. The role of a professional lawyer is to do everything possible to speed up the process and get you fair compensation for your accident.
