      Our law firm has a practising doctor as part of the team

      Personal injury claims are always fact-specific. The details of every case must be analyzed, including medical files. While Lawyers are extensively trained in the field of law – they are not healthcare professionals. At NOVA Injury law we believe that you deserve the best legal and medical expertise. That is why we are the sole firm in Atlantic Canada with a Doctor on our team.

      Dr. Laura Mitchell, the firm's Chief Medical Consultant, helps our legal team to appreciate the unique medical issues on each file. She provides medical guidance that helps our legal team to protect our clients and ensure that they're treated fairly by the insurance company. At our firm, we know how to advance complex claims to a great result.

      We come with the skills and resources to fight insurance companies

      The Insurance company is going to review your claim and wants to pay as little as possible to every injury victim. They put profits first - but what about your injuries and care needs? Most injury victims realize this when the insurance company makes a low-ball offer.

      Fighting back in the insurance system is tough and expensive, as it generally requires hiring medical and other experts who will lend credibility to your injury claims. These reports are costly and good experts are hard to find. What can you do? Let us handle the experts.

      When you are represented at NOVA Injury law, we do everything in our power to maximize the value of your claim. And we will pay for it. When it comes to getting you a fair settlement, we gladly hire the expertise necessary to get you the claim you deserve.
