  Personal Injury Law Services

Motor Vehicle Accidents
For any auto-related accident, we assist clients with both parts of the claim: the SABS (accident benefits) and the tort (meaning the third-party liability claim against the at-fault party). We will guide you through the litigation process until we are able to negotiate a settlement on your behalf. Some rare cases go through trial, and if that happens, we will take you through this every step of the way.

  • Motor vehicle accidents (Car, motorcycle, transit, TTC)
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Hit-and-run accidents
  • Snowmobile accidents
Premises Liability Accidents
People fall down, often through no fault of their own. These slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents can cause serious injuries like broken bones and concussions. If you’re injured in such an accident, you should retain a lawyer ASAP to begin an investigation into who is at fault.

  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Trip-and-fall accidents

Sometimes injuries arise out of the use of a product. This may occur if a product is defective, if it fails to come with proper warnings, or if it is prone to unexpected and unsafe behaviour. A product liability claim can be made against the designer, manufacturer, distributor, or retailer of the product. If you’ve been injured due to the use of a product, please contact us for a free consultation.

Defamation, Invasion of Privacy and Cyber Bullying
We also handle a variety of other litigation matters on a case by case basis.

  Our Fees

For personal injury, disability and employment cases, we work on a contingency fee basis, which means you will only have to pay a fee if and when we obtain a settlement or judgment in your case.

We understand that many of our clients struggle financially after a life changing event such as a car accident, and we therefore give our clients the ability to retain us without having to pay for our services up front. We also cover any expenses, known as disbursements, in your case, which are only paid back out of settlement or judgment. Further, if your case is not successful, you will not be required to pay us any fees.

In accordance with the Law Society of Ontario, we generally charge a contingency fee between 20% and 33% of your settlement, plus HST. However, the percentage we decide to charge will be based on the severity of your injuries, and the complexity of your case.

Please call us for further information and to discuss how we can help you.

Pecuniary and Non-Pecuniary Damages: What Is the Difference?

Pecuniary and Non-Pecuniary Damages: What Is the Difference?

The goal of a personal injury lawsuit is to make the victim “whole” again—that is, to provide them with the financial resources they’ll need to undo as many of the effects of their injuries as possible. Complicating this goal, though, is the fact that not all of these effects have an obvious, quantifiable value. To address this, two primary categories of compensatory damages exist: pecuniary and non-pecuniary. Here’s what you need to know about these terms and how they could affect your personal injury suit.

How To Settle An Accident Benefit Claim

A motor vehicle accident causing a personal injury is not only highly traumatic but can make for a complicated claims process. In fact, it’s not uncommon to see an accident claim go on for two years or longer. In order to save time and money, it’s in the interest of all parties to negotiate a settlement before a claim has to progress to court.
