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

      No two people are the same. No two accidents are the same. Every case involves unique facts that need solid advice from legal and medical experts to get it right. Lawyers didn't go to medical school - so that's why we have a doctor on our team to help advance our clients' personal injury claims.

      Dr. Laura Mitchell is an Emergency Room Physician and is the firm's Chief Medical Consultant. Her medical expertise helps the legal team appreciate the nature and extent of injuries fully and ensure that our clients receive fair compensation for their injuries. At NOVA Injury Law, we have the right team in place to support those that have been seriously injured.

      We come with the skills and resources to fight insurance companies

      Insurance professionals will scrutinize any claim you make to disqualify you from compensation completely or to pay you as little as possible. They have access to vast resources, such as medical and legal professionals, who will work hand and hand with the insurance industry to fight for you.

      The worst part is that the reports insurance companies commission are often biased and not persuasive. These reports are used as a tactic to push injury victims towards low-ball settlement offers. If you do decide to fight back, it can cost thousands of dollars to hire an expert of your own.

      When you hire NOVA Injury law, we pay the expert expenses for you. We make sure that you have the professional opinions necessary to maximize the value of your claim. Let the experts work for you, not just against you.
