Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer

Joseph Griffiths: Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer

Suffered Serious Injury

Why You're Here

You never imagined you'd be here—searching for a personal injury lawyer after your life was upended instantly by an accident.

One moment, everything was fine; the next, everything changed. The accident left you with serious personal injuries, financial difficulties, mounting medical bills, and a deep sense of injustice at an insurance company that pushes back on your claims.

You’re overwhelmed, frustrated, and uncertain about the future. Your physical pain is matched only by the emotional turmoil of navigating this storm alone. All you want is to be heard, to be treated fairly, and to find a beacon of hope that will guide you through these dark times. As an injured person, you need someone to advocate for you and make your voice heard.

What You Need to Know

You are going through a difficult time, and you need qualified legal representation and an experienced personal injury lawyer to act in your best interest and to prosecute your personal injury claim quickly, efficiently, and to a favourable outcome.

From car accidents, motorcycle accidents, fall accidents, dog bites, or even medical malpractice, I have the expertise to ensure you get the best possible results.

When you hire me as your personal injury lawyer, you are in good hands. While you focus on getting the necessary medical attention for your injuries, I fight with the insurance company to reimburse you for your medical expenses and proactively fight to get you money for your future care needs.

Insider Knowlege

Why You
Need Me

If you've been injured in an accident in Ottawa or Eastern Ontario, you need a personal injury lawyer who understands both sides of the battle.

With nearly 25 years of experience, including more than two decades as an insurance defence lawyer, I am uniquely positioned to level the playing field for you.

You don't have time to waste hiring a personal injury law firm that claims to understand the legal issues but really has no meaningful or relevant experience with the claims process. Plenty of lawyers practice civil litigation, but only a few act for personal injury clients with the knowledge needed to secure maximum compensation in a timely fashion and with a proven track record of getting their clients a fair settlement.

Trial Lawyer

When your life is shattered as a result of an accident, you need more than just hollow promises. As an Ottawa personal injury lawyer, my sole objective is to act in your best interest and to hold the at-fault party responsible for your injuries.

Mission: Your Recovery

Aren't All Lawyers the Same

Sure, every personal injury lawyer offers a free initial consultation and claims to provide the legal services you need on a contingency basis to get you compensated in a timely manner. But few can back up that claim with actual trial experience.

As a former insurance defence lawyer with nearly 25 years of experience and a proven track record in court, I don't just talk about what I will do for you; I deliver results.

From our first no-obligation consultation to the jury verdict, I strive to build a lawyer-client relationship that few others can match. Your recovery is my priority. I am dedicated to securing the maximum compensation you deserve. I understand the pain and financial strain an injury can cause, and I am committed to easing the burden on you by shifting it to the responsible party.

The legal process can be complicated, and it is my job to cut through the noise to get you a fair settlement as efficiently and smoothly as possible.

Too often, an injured person hires a car accident lawyer only to have their case delegated to someone else, or worse, “handed off” to an entire team of lawyers who don’t care about them or their case.

I am personally involved in each decision, each filing, each phase of the litigation.
