Harrison Pensa Personal Injury Law Group understands that injuries are personal. Our first priority is to assess your injury and ensure that proper medical care and treatment is provided. We address the long-term physical and psychological harm resulting from sexual assault, childhood abuse, medical malpractice, car accident, dog bite, slip and fall and other injuries that require representation through the legal process.
Visit the Harrison Pensa Personal Injury website where you can chat live with a personal injury law clerk. Ask any preliminary questions to help you decide if you would like to take advantage of our free consultation.
We represent injured persons on a contingency fee basis in most personal injury and medical/dental/professional malpractice cases. This means that we will not be paid any legal fees unless we recover compensation for your injuries and losses. Our fees are usually charged as a percentage of the monetary compensation paid to you. The fee percentage charged will depend on several factors, including the nature of your injuries, the risks involved in your case, and whether your claim settles or proceeds to trial or arbitration.
The Law Society of Ontario requires law firms to publish the maximum fee percentage that they charge. At Harrison Pensa LLP, the maximum fee percentage that we charge for personal injury cases is 30%. For medical/dental/professional malpractice cases, which are usually complex, the maximum fee that we charge is 35%. Your fee may be lower depending on the nature of your case.
The Law Society of Ontario has prepared a consumer guide that explains contingency fees:

Our team of experienced lawyers and compassionate assistants guide you through the process of resolving the legal issues associated with the injury and to gain fair compensation for you as a result of income and other losses. Statutory benefits, insurance, and special payments for damage may all be available, depending on the circumstances. A team of doctors and rehabilitation experts advise us throughout the process. Our goal is to protect you from being re-victimized by the legal system.
