While you don’t always need a lawyer’s advice to win in the small claims court around Toronto, professional advice from a law firm such as The Law Offices of Arman Hoque can help increase your odds of successfully obtaining your desired settlement amount.
Filing a Small Claim Suit in the Greater Toronto Area
A small claim lawsuit must be filed within two years following the date of the incident or the contract date. The amount of damages you are seeking must also be $25,000 or less. There are also many common mistakes that a lawyer would catch, but would not be so evident to someone representing themselves. One error as simple as excluding the word “Limited” in a corporation’s name may render your judgement worthless.
Lack of documented evidence can also negatively affect your small claims suit, such as not presenting receipts, statements, contracts, invoices, or providing a clear timeline of the events.
The cost to file a claim is $75.00 and $40.00 to file as a defendant.
