The CRT is an independent, neutral decision maker. We can’t provide legal advice, but we can help you understand the CRT process. Our Solution Explorer also gives free legal information about a variety of topics.
What’s the difference between legal information and advice?
Legal information is general information that could apply to anyone. It’s information about what you could do. But legal advice is telling you what you should do based on your circumstances.
For example, the CRT can tell you what kinds of evidence that participants often submit. But the CRT can’t tell you what evidence you should submit, or what would help you prove your claim.
We can also help you fill in the claim application form by telling you what kind of information goes in which sections. But we can’t tell you what you should enter, who to make your claim against, or what to ask for in your claim.
We also can’t tell you whether a potential claim has merit or is worth filing.
