What You Need to Know about COVID-19 and the Courts

Much like the rest of the country, Ontario is gradually resuming activities and easing restrictions in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. While courthouses closed their doors earlier this year, we’re seeing many jurisdictions across the province slowly move toward reopening.

What does this mean for your personal injury claim?

While non-jury trials and other hearings that are urgent or were scheduled to be heard during the closure are being given priority for in-person hearings, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice is continuing to hear most matters remotely in writing or by video conference. The Divisional Court and Ontario Court of Appeal will continue to hear matters remotely until further notice.

In the meantime, counsel and parties are discouraged from physically attending courthouses to file documents in person. Instead, parties should file Claims or Statements of Claims through the Civil Claims Online Portal. It’s always advisable to work with a lawyer when filing documents in a civil case.

We at Beckett have continued to prioritize our clients through these unprecedented times. As the court system navigates the significant backlogs it now faces, we are committed to ensuring that our clients’ claims are brought forward or rescheduled, and will work aggressively to execute this commitment.

If you are seeking legal advice and have questions about your case, please get in touch with us today!
