Mississauga, Ontario Personal Injury Lawyers
Law Firm OverviewPetrillo Law is a personal injury law firm based in Mississauga, Ontario providing legal services and representation to clients throughout the province of Ontario, Canada. The firmís founding attorney, S.J. Chip Petrillo has over two decades of experience as an attorney and is highly respected by his colleagues for his extensive knowledge and experience in the area of personal injury and insurance law. The firm is dedicated to providing clients with an exceptional level of service and making the legal process feel more like a partnership.
The attorneys at Petrillo Law have extensive expertise in the areas of personal injury law, including Long Term Disability claims and health care subrogation claims. Health care subrogation is unique to Canadian insurance law, wherein the Ministry of Health is entitled to reimbursement for the amount it paid for your medical care. Therefore, it is important to have injury settlements properly adjusted to account for subrogation claims. Additionally, the firm also handles dispute resolution, including disputes arising as a result of breach of contract.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury, it is strongly recommended that you consult with an attorney before making any decisions about your case. Decisions made in haste can potentially damage your claim and leave you with a lower amount than you may be rightfully entitled to. A skilled attorney, such as the attorneys at Petrillo Law, can make sure that your claim properly reflects your injuries and get you the amount that will adequately allow you to get your life back to normal.

Areas of Law Description
Petrillo Law offers legal service on the following areas of practice:
- Breach of Contract
A breach of contract occurs when one of the persons who entered into the contract (which can be oral or in writing) fails to do or perform the duties required under the agreement. In this instance, the wronged party would have the right to seek compensation. Petrillo Law has successfully represented hundreds of clients in a wide variety of contract disputes across the Greater Toronto Area and beyond. In a situation where a breach of contract may have occurred, we will review the agreement to confirm whether the other party has not fulfilled its duties properly. If a breach of contract has occurred, we offer Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) services to attempt to settle the matter quickly and in a cost-effective matter.
- Car Accidents & Motor Vehicle Accidents
Being injured in a motor vehicle accident is a traumatic event and Petrillo Law has the knowledge and experience to help accident victims receive the benefits and compensation that they are entitled to. We understand what our clients are going through and are ready and willing to look after dealing with the insurance companies so that you can focus on recovering from your injuries. We can evaluate a case to determine whether it meets the provincial threshold required to start a lawsuit as well as represent injured people who have been denied accident benefits by their own insurance company.
- Disability Insurance
Long Term Disability insurance is supposed to provide some financial security and peace of mind to people who are unable to work for due to a medical condition. At Petrillo Law, we understand that you are not only dealing with your health issues, but you are also concerned with being able to meet your financial obligations. If you qualify for Long Term Disability and your insurance company is denying your claim, you need sound and proven legal representation. Petrillo Law can help. We are experienced disability lawyers who have been able to obtain favourable results for hundreds of disabled clients across Mississauga, the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and Ontario.
- Slip & Fall Injuries
If you have experienced a slip and fall accident, you need to keep two things in mind. The first one is to get prompt medical attention. You may not know the full extent of your injuries right away, since a slip and fall injury can result in conditions, such as Chronic Pain Syndrome and fibromyalgia, which result in ongoing health concerns. The second thing you need to do is to talk to a slip and fall lawyer immediately. Depending on whether the injury occurred on public or private property, the time for making a claim is limited. At Petrillo law, we work on behalf of injured people to get them the compensation they deserve. As experienced slip and fall lawyers, we understand the pain and uncertainty that comes with being injured.
- Subrogation Claims
Subrogation rules allow the Ministry of Health to recover millions of dollars spent on health care costs annually. Mississauga Insurance defense lawyers like Petrillo Law can advise clients about what the true cost of their personal injury claim should be so that the subrogated claim is included in the damages sought. As experienced insurance lawyers, we can review your case and offer expert legal advice about your personal situation.
- Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)
Alternative Dispute Resolution is a different process than going to court. Rather than using an adversarial system to resolve an issue, it involves having both parties sit down with a mediator to identify the issues and try to find some common ground. The mediator is not acting "for" either party; instead he or she remains neutral and facilitates a discussion. When mediation is conducted properly, both parties come away from the experience feeling that they got at least some, if not all of what they were trying to achieve. Petrillo Law is one of the leading ADR firms in Mississauga and the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).
