Small Claims

Small Claims

We are assisting patients of Windsor and Chatham-Kent hospitals and medical clinics whose data was stolen in October 2023. Patients of Bluewater, Windsor Regional Hospital, Chatham-Kent Health Alliance, Erie Shores HealthCare, and Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare were affected.

Health care providers in Ontario have legal and statutory obligations to protect your information. If they fail in this duty, they are liable for the damages that arise. If you or your family were victims, you may be owed compensation.

If your health care provider has not offered satisfactory compensation, it may be necessary to ask the court to intervene. We can help you prepare, file, and pursue a claim.

Legal Assistance: Contingency Agreement or Flat Rate

 

If you require assistance in drafting a Plaintiff's Claim for Small Claims Court, we charge a flat rate.

If you want us to represent you throughout, we will charge a contingency fee of up to 50% of any payment made. We consider this rate appropriate as, given the large number of people affected by the breach, damage awards are unlikely to be large.

We are ready to help. For more information, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Note: If you are awarded damages, you will be ineligible for compensation following a class action if one is certified.

The field of negligence is delineated by considerations of whether it is appropriate, or fair, for a duty of care to be imposed. Modern courts have worked to define and elaborate this duty. In so doing, they have sought to define and describe the essential aspects of the duty of care. This article examines the features of the tort of negligence, and the tests and rules that have developed and refined the tort, by applying them to a hypothetical scenario involving an automobile accident.

 

Courts have identified six types of damages that a person (or corporation) can claim as compensation for loss or injury. Which types might Small Claims actually award a successful plaintiff? Here is a break down.

Rather than detailing a claim in a Form 7A, consider appending a schedule. The judge will have the substance of the claim in a clear, easy-to-read format. Here is a PDF of a sample schedule for a plaintiff's claim. Its elements are described below.
