As adults, it is our responsibility to provide children with a healthy and safe environment. Unfortunately, injuries involving children are often caused by the negligence of others.
Your children cannot defend themselves in court, and therefore rely on you to fight for their physical, emotional, and financial future. With that in mind, it is vital that you understand your rights and the rights of your injured child.
If you suspect that someone else’s act or omission caused the injury to your child, you may be eligible for compensation.
With more than 40 years of experience in child injury litigation, Oatley Vigmond can assist you with ongoing and immediate needs while we fight for your compensation in court.

How much will my children’s injury claim cost?
At Oatley Vigmond, we understand the different physical, mental, and financial costs associated with injuries to children.
Though the cost of physical rehabilitation is a small price to pay for the health and happiness of our children, hiring a multidisciplinary team of pediatric specialists is not cheap. Alternately, in tragic cases where injuries to children result in wrongful death, funeral costs will be incurred. Covering these costs can be exceedingly difficult in the wake of your child’s injury, especially when work schedules are broken to care for injured or affected loved ones.
Of course, injuries to children cause not only physical pain, but mental and emotional trauma as well, both for the victim and their family. In these cases, counseling or therapy may be required.
Moreover, many injured children fall behind in school while focusing on their recovery, which can have long-term negative implications for their future. To mitigate these risks, many families seek the services of special tutors and classroom assistants.
For families struggling with these immediate and ongoing expenses, the prospect of incurring additional legal fees is unthinkable, which is why Oatley Vigmond insists you do not pay until your children’s injury claim is successful.
By waiving all legal fees until your compensation is secured, we ensure that qualified legal representation is available to every Ontarian in need.
