If you or someone you know has been injured or killed by the commission of a violent crime in Ontario, you may be entitled to compensation from the Criminal Injury Compensation Board. Raphael Barristers have represented many victims of crime and have been able to secure compensation for pain and suffering, lost income and medical expenses. Please feel free to contact our offices free of charge to see if you may qualify.
Raphael Barristers have handled many cases through the Criminal Injury Compensation Board. In some circumstances, we have also advanced a concurrent civil law suit against the perpetrator of the crime and/or the establishment where the incident took place. It is important to have the entire circumstances of the incident reviewed with competent counsel to see if there are other avenues of recovery available to the victim of crime.
Raphael Barristers are skilled negotiators with an excellent settlement success rate through alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation and arbitration. However, where a trial may be necessary, we have a team of experienced trial lawyers with proven trial expertise.
Raphael Barristers has an admirable record of successful trial results and settlements for their clients and have the respect of insurance companies, Mediators, Arbitrators and Judges. We have earned the respect of our colleagues and they frequently refer us their complex civil cases.
Affordability should not be a concern for people that seek our help. Subject to certain exceptions, we will take on your case and agree to be paid only if we are successful in achieving a settlement or Judgment at trial. That means you would only be required to pay the lawyers fees if a settlement is achieved or Judgment is obtained at trial. If the case is not successful then you would not be charged any fees.
I was in a motorcycle accident and retained Jeffrey Raphael to represent me. I had been charged with careless driving and the insurer of my motorcycle told me my insurance had lapsed. Jeff was able to get the charges dropped, reinstate my insurance and settle my case for $1.5 million.
I sustained catastrophic injuries in a car accident. I hired a lawyer from the yellow pages but was not happy with the job they did for me. I then retained Jeffrey Raphael to take over my law suit. Jeff did an excellent job and was able to settle my case for more than I expected. Jeff kept me updated on all the developments in my case and was very knowledgeable about the law. I would not hesitate to recommend him. - D.S.
