Personal Injury means your bodily injuries, which include physical wounds, mental harassment and psychological damage. These injuries could be caused by various reasons such as: motor vehicle accidents (MVA), workplace hazard, criminal offense, slip-and-fall and malpractice. Usually, when these events occur, you could make a claim to an insurance company, or to a government agency like the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB). The insurance company or WSIB should compensate your treatment costs and income loss according to your insurance policy or law. For damages that are beyond the insurance coverage or regulatory allowance, you could commence a lawsuit, subject to certain exceptions, against the party who was at fault.

Kaitai provides professional services that are tailored to different situations according to the accidents occurred. Most important, we help you collect every evidence supportive, organize medical documents, use our expertise to build up your file and ultimately maximize your insurance claims. If the final offer or decision made by the insurer or a government agency is not content, we could appeal the outcome to a statutory tribunal such as License Appeal Tribunal (LAT), or even commence a lawsuit before a competent court.
Small Claim means bringing your disputes to a Small Claims Court for a judgment. In Ontario, Small Claims Courts are a branch of the Superior Court of Justice. Based on the inherent jurisdiction of the Superior Court, the Small Claims Court can hear any cases for a pecuniary compensation or a property return, as long as the principal of the claim is not more than CD$25, 000. In other words, the reason or cause of action of a lawsuit is broad—it could be monetary debts, illegal possession of chattel, breach of contract, wrongful dismissal, or even a violation to human/Charter right, and so on.
However, the remedies of a Small Claims Court limit to two types:
According to the Ministry of Attorney General, there are approximately 235 administrative tribunals, also known as ABC — agency, board or commission, in Ontario. They are responsible for determining privileges, benefits, and interests that affect our daily life. Some of the tribunals, as a quasi-court, independently settle disputes between parties, from Ontarians, private companies to government. Governed by the Statutory Powers Procedure Act in general and their respective practice codes/rules, the ABCs exercise the statutory authorities in a just, most expeditious, and cost-effective manner.
Kaitai provides most common services under the jurisdictions of ABC. They include applying Liquor Sales / Lottery licenses at the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario, disputing a CIC (Citizenship and Immigration Canada) decision before the Immigration and Refugee Board, seeking an eviction order at the Landlord and Tenant Board, and reporting an act of discrimination to the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, etc.
Kaitai affiliates with renowned law firms in providing other legal services of a broad spectrum. Rather than simply referring your case to lawyers, we work closely on your file with respect to the following legal matters:
