Christian J. Guerette

Christian’s practice is split between personal injury litigation and insurance litigation on behalf of Plaintiffs. He is very experienced in handling not only motor vehicle accident and slip/trip and fall cases, but has extensive experience representing every day people in long-term disability, life insurance, fire insurance, commercial insurance and other assorted insurance cases. He has represented countless accident victims in complicated injury cases involving substantial damages. He has significant experience handling serious brain injury, and orthopedic injury claims against Defendants and their insurance companies. He also has notable experience handling medical malpractice and product liability matters.

Christian has won several trials on behalf of his clients. For example he secured a multi-million dollar jury verdict on behalf of one of his clients where other lawyers had turned away the case. He also won a trial in a motor vehicle case where the ‘threshold’ was hotly contested. In that case that clients’ lawyer had refused to take the case to trial. Christian took it to trial and secured victory. These are a few examples of the skill and experience he brings to the table while representing injured clients. Christian has settled countless cases reaching far into the millions cumulatively over his career.

Christian has appeared as trial counsel in Superior Court. He has trial and appellate experience.  He has argued several appeals as lead counsel before the Court of Appeal of Ontario. He has also acted as lead litigation counsel before the Supreme Court of Canada in an insurance litigation case.  Christian has appeared on CBC’s ‘The National’ as a quoted expert on the subject of insurance litigation in relation to some of the work he was doing in relation to a particular client.

Christian is a congenial and fearless advocate on behalf of his clients. He applies his unique mix of experience and analytical skills to all his cases with great results. He has built a practice over the years that have been largely based on referrals from other lawyers and past clients, who have had a positive experience with him as their lawyer. His list of accomplishments is beyond the scope of this short profile. In the event you want to know more please feel free to ask him.
