What Are Small Claims?

In the province of Ontario, a Small Claim is any claim for money or property that is worth $25,000 or less (not including interest and other costs). Some examples of Small Claims are:

  • Breach of contract
  • Personal injuries
  • Property damage
  • Unpaid accounts for goods or services rendered
  • Unpaid loans or rent

For example, if you are a landlord and have had tenants who have fallen behind on rent payments, a Small Claims lawyer or paralegal can help you recover the money you are owed. As for personal injury, a Small Claims lawyer or paralegal is a great ally when someone else is responsible for your injuries — such as in a car accident or an injury due to property neglect.

What Do You Need?

In order to be successful with a Small Claims action, you need to summarize the event and explain why you are entitled to compensation. You must also provide as much evidence as possible to substantiate your claim. Evidence may consist of things like photographs, witness statements, receipts or contracts.

A Small Claims lawyer or paralegal can help you gather all of the necessary items and whatever else you may need to file your Small Claim. Lawyers and paralegals are also familiar with the practices and procedures prescribed by the Ontario Small Claims Rules.

At Rayson Legal, we are ready and able to help file or defend a Small Claims matter to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve. Call us at (461) 630-5600 Ext. 1226 to schedule an appointment.
