Why an experienced civil lawyer is important at every stage of the process, including filing a claim
Before meeting with Gujral Law Professional Corporation, you may be 110% certain about moving forward with a civil lawsuit against a party (individual, group, or business). We empathize with the situation that may have led to your need for guidance on civil matters from an experienced litigator like Tarunjeet Gujral. However, there are many considerations for us to discuss before suing parties for financial losses or physical damage.
How to file in Mississauga, Ontario
The matters that necessitate filing a civil lawsuit may include contract disagreements. Or, claims may be filed related to personal injury or damage to the claimant’s property or reputation.
Most documents can be filed in civil cases via the Superior Court of Justice online. It can be challenging for the layperson to know exactly what needs to be filed and when such documentation must be submitted.
Notably, we are very familiar with all of the documents that must be filed at every step in the case. These documents are mandated as per the Rules of Civil Procedure or court notices or practice directives.
Additionally, we also have a secure infrastructure in place to ensure that any documentation provided is safe and kept private. Our in-house processes also aid in managing these critical documents, which again can be a challenging task for those individuals who do not partner with a lawyer from the outset. After all, lawyers position their clients best for a successful resolution.
Be aware that once the documents have been filed, they are public. Others can view the information that has been provided, regardless of whether it is filed in person or online. Also, filed documents cannot be altered. Again, this facet of the process underscores the need for enlisting a lawyer to guide you through the case at every stage. If documents require corrections, lawyers like Tarunjeet Gujral have the experience and knowledge of the process to take the appropriate steps to change them.
Counsel that you can trust
We also encourage our clients to take a step back. The matters that bring individuals to our office are frequently emotionally-charged. It is important to take a breath and consider what is truly in the best interests of yourself and any others that may be involved and who depend on you. Based on the nature of your dispute or case, we may discuss the potential for punitive or exemplary damages (if the damage was deliberately inflicted). We may talk about the consequences of judgments not made in your favour. For instance, in Ontario, if the defendant is not found to be liable, the plaintiff may be held responsible for all the winner’s court costs and related expenses.
Tarunjeet Gujral always provides guidance that is in the best interest of his clients. He may determine that the most favorable option is to accept a reasonable offer or settlement as early as possible. And we urge you to contact us ASAP at (647) 957-8077. All communication is secure and held in the strictest confidence.Back to Real Estate Page
