Motor Vehicle Accidents
A car accident can change your life in a flash. You may feel like you will never get back on your feet and how you were feeling before it happened. Understandably, the process of navigating through this process can be frustrating and challenging.
Whether you are at fault in an accident or not, you may be entitled to Accident Benefits. This is where your own insurance company will help you get treatment like physiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychological treatment and treatment from other rehabilitative disciplines. However, your insurance company may deny your treatment or claim that you only have a “minor injury”. It is best to speak with a lawyer to help you navigate through difficult insurance forms and get you the treatment that you need in order to recover.
Individuals that are not at fault in an accident may be entitled to a tort claim against the driver at-fault. This claim will allow you to recover damages for pain and suffering, loss of wages, loss of competitive advantage as well as out-of-pocket expenses and future care.

Slip, Trip & Falls
There are numerous reasons for a slip or trip and fall occurring. Untreated ice and snow, poor lighting, slippery surfaces and other hidden hazards are all possible reasons for an injury to occur. In Ontario, the occupier of a premise is responsible to ensure that the premise is kept in a safe and orderly manner. These accidents can occur on public and private sidewalks, private driveways, walkways, staircases and even retail stores.
Situational factors determine the success of your case. It is imperative to meet and speak with a lawyer to ensure that your rights are protected and that you are not barred from commencing action. Proper notice for slips or trips and falls is required to ensure that you are able to pursue a claim for damages including pain and suffering, loss of wages, loss of competitive advantage as well as out-of-pocket expenses and future care.
When accidents lead to the death of a family member or loved one, it is the rest of the family that is left to pick up the pieces and try to get some closure on what has occurred. Often times a fatal accident is something that could have been prevented. A small and quick loss of concentration behind a vehicle can have a devastating effect.
Brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, and even grandchildren will be at a loss and could all be entitled to damages for loss of care, guidance and companionship.
