Windsor Ontario injury lawyers

Paciocco& Mellow are Windsor Ontario Injury Lawyers. When you have been injured in an accident you may be reluctant to contact a lawyer or start a lawsuit because you are worried about how people will view you. All too often, society perpetuates that stereotype that personal injury lawyers are ambulance chasers that only care about money and that people who start lawsuits following an injury are trying to take advantage of the system. These stereotypes could not be further from the truth. The vast majority of accident victims that pursue lawsuits are honest and hardworking people who through no fault of their own have found themselves facing ongoing pain and loss of income. Most injury lawyers, including the Windsor Ontario Injury Lawyers at Paciocco& Mellow are caring individuals who are there to help their clients in a difficult situation.

An accident can have a devastating personal and financial impact on the accident victim and his or her family members. You should not feel that you are doing anything wrong for starting a claim as the result of an accident. In Canada, our laws are compensatory in nature. That means that the money that is awarded by the courts is to compensate the injured party for his or her losses and put them in the same position, as well as money can, that they would have been if the accident did not happen. Damages can include general damages which compensate for pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life, damages for past and future income loss as the result of the accident, and damages for out of pocket expenses that have been or may be incurred in the future as a result of the accident. In Canada, the courts have kept the damages for pain and suffering to a much lower level than in the United States. The courts will not make multi-million dollar pain and suffering awards in Canada. In fact, the Supreme Court of Canada has imposed a cap on such pain and suffering awards which presently stands at approximately $370,000.00. Such an award is not common and is only seem in the most serious cases.
