Civil Litigation

Stellar Law

What is civil litigation?

Civil litigation is a term used to describe a non-criminal legal dispute where an injured or aggrieved party seeks compensation or specific performance from another party. It describes matters as diverse as lawsuits that arise from car accidents, being wrongfully dismissed from your job or the non-fulfillment of a contract to landscape your backyard.


The legal team at Stellar Law Professional Corporation has extensive experience in the following areas of civil litigation:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents
  • Pedestrian Accidents
  • Slip and Falls
  • Medical malpractice
  • Dental malpractice
  • Wrongful death
  • Wrongful dismissal & constructive dismissal
  • Short & long term disability benefits
  • Breach of contract
  • Product liability
  • Insurance disputes

Legal fees can be paid based on hourly billing, a flat rate, or on a contingency fee basis.

Contingency fees are legal fees that are not paid until a case reaches a negotiated settlement or has been awarded damages at trial. These legal fees are based on a percentage of the amount you recover. If you lose your case, you do not pay us any legal fees.

Our contingency fees range from 25% to a maximum of 35% of your settlement or trial award, including costs, plus applicable taxes.

Our percentage is determined based on the nature and complexity of your matter, including how much preparation time will be required.

In many cases the defendants will make a contribution to your legal costs, which will reduce the fees you pay to us.

Stellar Law Professional Corporation may accept your case on a contingency fee basis for:

  1. Motor Vehicle Accidents
  2. Statutory Accident Benefits
  3. Long-Term Disability Cases
  4. Product Liability
  5. Slip and Falls
  6. Occupier Liability Cases
  7. Medical Malpractice
  8. Dental malpractice
  9. Professional Negligence Cases

For more information about contingency fee agreements, please review this guide from the Law Society of Ontario.
