Ontario’s roads and highways are hazardous for all motorists. Recent findings by the Ontario Road Safety Annual Reports (ORSAR) estimate that there are over 80,000 collisions resulting in personal injury or death each year. Irresponsible drivers, treacherous weather conditions, and vehicle malfunctions cause dangerous accidents every day, putting motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists at risk.
In car accident cases our focus is on critical, life-changing injuries and fatality cases. We work with people who need strong advocates on their side to achieve a fair outcome. We have represented individuals in a wide range of car accident claims and have achieved successful settlements and verdicts for clients suffering such injuries as traumatic brain injuries, spinal injuries, serious orthopaedic injuries, and wrongful death.
Our personal injury lawyers have experience representing clients in a range of multi-car collisions, including:
- Highway collisions
- Intersection collisions
- Commercial vehicle collisions
- Motorcycle and car collisions
- Truck collisions
- Head-on collision

Our lawyers work with a range of medical professionals who assist with our clients’ recovery, including neurologists, neurosurgeons, clinical and neuropsychologists, orthopaedic surgeons, physical therapists and speech language pathologists. We also work with life care planners who can assist in projecting a fair analysis of an injured victim’s future needs.
When a person is involved in a car accident in Ontario, which results in a serious injury or death, compensation is available for the injured persons as well as their families. In Ontario, there are two streams of compensation, one is through a claim for accident benefits, sometimes referred to as “no fault” benefits and the other is through a negligence claim for damages (or a tort claim as it is sometimes called).
Regardless of what type of motor vehicle accident you have been involved with, the serious injuries arising from these collisions can be life-changing. Your ability to care for yourself, earn an income, or participate in activities you used to enjoy could be permanently affected.
The realization that your independent lifestyle has permanently changed can be jarring: knowing who to turn to in this distressing time is crucial. You need legal consultation, support, and representation that you can trust with your future.
