If you or a loved one has been injured or harmed in an accident caused entirely or partially by someone else, you may be able to claim damages. Navigating the legal system can be complicated. It’s important to have the right legal representative by your side. But how do you choose the right personal injury firm to represent you?
Personal injury and insurance law has its own set of rules, regulations, and deadlines. You want a legal team on your side that has expertise in this area of the law and is well versed in any recent changes that may impact your claim.
Fosters Law is a London-based boutique personal injury and insurance defence law firm and litigation is our sole area of practice. We have been successfully serving clients across Ontario for almost 50 years.
Responsibilities and commitment
When you bring a claim to court, the last thing you want is to be surprised with a ton of research and paperwork. It’s essential to confirm with your lawyer who is responsible for handling what before making an agreement. You should feel confident and supported by your lawyer and their team.
At Fosters Law, we take pride in the hands-on personal service we provide our clients. Once retained, our clients never need to worry about submitting paperwork to insurance companies or dealing with adjusters. Our experienced team will:
- Attend meetings with treatment providers
- Help arrange funding for discharge from the hospital
- Assist with selecting treatment providers
- Arrange for income replacement
- Guide you through the court process
Clear fees and payment
Legal fees regarding personal injury claims can be confusing. Make sure you ask the right questions about the circumstances when there is a fee to pay, how that fee is determined, and when the payment is due.
At Fosters, we are very clear with our clients — there is no charge for our initial consultation and no retainer once we agree to take your case. Our fee structure is transparent. We work on a contingency fee basis which we explain to all of our clients in detail. You can find more information about contingency fees on our website. There is no mystery about our fees.
While many law firms may seem the same, the reality is that they are not. Each has a unique approach to working with clients and handling cases. We recommend reading reviews and client testimonials to find the right fit.
Known as “ Damn Fine Litigators”, Fosters Law has built a reputation on fearless advocacy for our clients. That being said, we don’t take ourselves too seriously: we’re approachable, practical, and do our best to make things easy for our clients.
Lawyers are people too! And involvement in the community says a lot about how they care about people.
The staff and lawyers at Fosters sit on charity boards, coach and sponsor sports teams, and contribute to the London and area community with various events and fundraising efforts. The Fosters team raises money for our local hospitals, including London Health Sciences Centre and Parkwood, various trauma-related charities such as Brain Injury Associations across southwestern Ontario and SARI Therapeutic Riding and other local charities that lend a hand to people in need.
Staying in contact
You should always be able to reach your lawyer when you need them. Maybe you have a last-minute question, want clarification about your benefits, or need a recommendation for a treatment provider. Sometimes you need to contact us outside regular business hours.
At Fosters, we recognize that our clients have different ways of reaching us. We provide our clients with options that work best for them — and we are never more than a text or phone call away. In COVID times, we can arrange personal appointments with appropriate precautions or meet via video conference. We frequently meet our clients at home, in hospital, or in our downtown London office. The choice is yours.
