While the claims in Small Claims Court are “small” in the view of the court system, for individuals and families, $35,000 or $5,000 or whatever could prove to be a significant difference maker. A Lawyer can help ensure that you receive what you’re owed. Likewise, if someone is suing you, the right legal advice can protect you and your wealth.

Small Claims Court Explained

Residents of Mississauga can pursue small claims in a variety of situations, including but not limited to: 

  • Money owed for rent
  • An unpaid balance from a sale
  • Loans that haven’t been paid back

In some cases, you may be owed damages. For example, if you’re injured at a Mississauga business at no fault of your own, you may be able to sue for pain & suffering, damage to your property, and more. 

You can sue for damages in the following cases (among others):

  • Personal injuries that others are liable for
  • Breach of contracts
  • Damage to property, including homes, vehicles, jewelry, etc.

You may be able to sue someone under a wide variety of other circumstances. It’s wise to talk with a Lawyer who can advise your case and how you should proceed.
