Personal Injury Practice Areas
Here are just some of the Personal Injury practice areas our Hamilton and Toronto lawyers may be able to help you with.
Serious Car Accidents
Perhaps you were headed to or from work, to your daughter’s soccer practice, to the cottage or to visit family, when the unexpected happened, and you were involved in a serious car accident. Alternately, you may have been walking across the street or riding a bicycle when you were hit by a car, truck or motorcycle? The collision may have been caused by the driver failing to pay attention, being distracted, talking on their cell phone, speeding, or even being intoxicated or under the influence.
Depending upon your injuries you may need rehabilitation, nursing care, or even surgery. You may not be able to work and need income while you recover. The benefits available to you after a car accident will depend on the seriousness of your injuries, the amount of medical care you require, and how your injuries are classified by your insurance company.
An experienced Hamilton & Toronto Personal Injury Lawyer from Michael’s Law Firm will help you through this difficult time by walking you through the various paperwork and forms that need to be filled out. Our car accident lawyers in Hamilton and Toronto will ensure that you have the resources you need to heal, whether you have suffered a short-term or long-term injury, so that you can focus your energy on your recovery. Our lawyers will assist you in obtaining accident benefits, and in cases of serious personal injury, in pursuing a claim for restitution against the at fault party, known as a tort claim.
Even if you may be responsible for your accident, the car accident lawyers at Michael’s Law Firm are still interested in hearing from you. Call us at 647-495-8995.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Every year, tens of thousands of Ontario residents are seriously injured in slip and fall accidents. In fact, slip and falls represent the second leading cause of injury and death after automobile accidents. Slip and fall accidents or trip and fall accidents can be caused by crumbling pavement, uneven sidewalks or walking surfaces, liquids on the floor, bunched up entry rugs and snow or ice, to name a few. Personal injuries from slip and falls frequently result in hospitalization and in the most serious cases, even death.
Our Hamilton and Toronto slip and fall personal injury lawyers at Michael’s Law Firm represent people who have been injured in slip and fall accidents, and help them obtain the compensation they deserve, whether their injury occurred at the grocery store, the mall, in a parking lot, on the sidewalk, roadway or at someone’s business or residence. If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall, call 647-495-8995 to find out how we can help today.
Were you cruising on your bike when a driver pulled out unexpectedly, turned without signalling, or ran into you? Were you thrown from your motorcycle or dragged underneath it? Did your motorcycle accident leave you with serious personal injuries? As a result of your motorcycle accident, have you required rehabilitation or lost wages? If so, call our experienced motorcycle accident lawyers at Michael’s Law Firm today.
There are close to 300,000 large trucks licensed for use on Ontario roads. Each year, more than 10,000 of these trucks are involved in collisions, resulting in several thousand injuries and close to 100 deaths. Due to the size and speed of trucks, injuries are often severe. If you were involved in an accident involving a truck, call the knowledgeable trucking accident injury lawyers at Michael’s Law Firm today for a free consultation today.
Accident Benefit and No-Fault Claims
Whether you’ve been injured in a car accident, motorcycle accident or trucking accident, you may be entitled to accident benefits from your insurance company (or one of the other driver’s insurance companies if you don’t have insurance), including income replacement benefits, non-earner benefits, caregiver benefits, rehabilitation benefits, attendant care benefits as well as a number of other benefits. In many cases, insurance companies wrongly resist paying injured people the no-fault benefits they are entitled to, or wrongly terminate their entitlement to benefits. If you have a question about the no-fault benefits you are entitled to, call our no-fault lawyers at 647-495-8995 today.
When you went to the doctor, you just wanted to get better. You trusted that your doctor, the nurses, and the healthcare staff would look after you and help you to recover. But sometimes doctors and other healthcare providers make mistakes. Perhaps you were misdiagnosed or had surgery performed without your consent, or even had the wrong surgery performed, which does in fact happen. Maybe your doctor botched your surgery? These cases are known as medical negligence or medical malpractice, and if you have suffered from medical malpractice, you have the right to obtain compensation from those responsible for the pain suffered by you and your loved ones. Contact our personal injury lawyers specializing in medical malpractice to see what you may be entitled to.
Helping You Recover Compensation from the Unexpected Death of a Loved One
The unexpected loss of a loved one is a horrific ordeal for anyone to endure. The decision to pursue a wrongful death claim is always a difficult one. Obviously, no amount of money can make up for the loss that you have suffered. However, wrongful death litigation can recover the money needed to pay for funeral expenses, grief counselling, and the ongoing loss of your loved one’s services and financial support. The wrongful death lawyers at Michael’s Law Firm can help you recover the compensation you are entitled to today.
If you or someone you love has sustained a traumatic brain injury, brain trauma, a concussion, or a closed head injury, it is important to speak to a lawyer with experience handling brain injury cases. Brain injuries can be especially challenging injuries to deal with as symptoms can vary greatly from person to person, and often the sufferer does not believe that anything is wrong with them. In many cases, brain injuries can take weeks or even months to manifest which means brain injuries are often misdiagnosed or go undetected by treating physicians.
At Michael’s Law Firm, we understand the challenges our clients face after suffering a brain injury and have the experience to help them get your life back on track. Our accomplished team can assist you with your claim, acting as your advocate, advisor and representative throughout the claims process. Depending upon the cause and severity of your injury, you may be eligible for accident and disability benefits, compensation for your injuries themselves, along with compensation for medical expenses, rehabilitation and lost income. If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury, call one of our Toronto or Hamilton injury accident lawyers today to learn more about how we can obtain the compensation you need to get your life back together and protect your financial future.
Spinal Cord Injuries – Helping You Take Your Life Back
Every year in Ontario, approximately 600 people suffer new spinal cord injuries, while more than 33,000 people are living with spinal cord injuries. Of those injured, almost 70% are male, and the majority of injuries happen to people between the ages of 20-29 and to those over the age of 70. Significantly, it has been estimated that more than 90% of what is known about spinal cord injuries has been discovered in the last 20 years.
If you have suffered a traumatic spinal cord injury through a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, biking accident, fall, or through the fault of another person, there is help. The spinal cord personal injury lawyers at Michael’s Law Firm can assist you in obtaining the medical care and rehabilitation you need while offering practical, compassionate counselling, all while aggressively pursuing the compensation you and your family deserve. As your spinal injury lawyers, we are committed to financing your case until it is successfully resolved, so we don’t charge up front or hourly fees. Depending on the cause of your spinal cord injury, you may qualify for accident benefits (no-fault benefits), disability benefits and be entitled to restitution. Together, we can help you move forward.
While enjoying the water the thought of an accident probably never crossed your mind. However, one instant of inattention can spell disaster, a risk often made worse by alcohol and intoxication. Every summer in Ontario, there are several dozen boating deaths and an even larger number of injuries. If you were injured in a boating accident or a loved one was killed, and the accident was caused by another person or a mechanical issue with the boat, we may be able to help. Contact the boating accident injury lawyers at Michael’s Law Firm today.
Dog bites can cause serious injuries and physical and emotional scars. While a handful of breeds are responsible for a majority of dog bite injuries, any breed of dog can bite and cause harm. Victims of dog bites often require medical treatment including stitches and even plastic surgery. Even if the dog bite was minor, or the scar was small, you may still be entitled to compensation. Call the personal injury lawyers at Michael’s Law Firm at 647-495-8995 to discuss your dog bite claim.
Long Term Disability – Protecting Your Future
If you’ve been seriously injured, the last thing you needed was for your long term disability carrier to deny coverage. However, in far too many cases, that’s exactly what happens, your long term disability insurer denies coverage or refuses to pay you the long term disability benefits that you paid for, and to which you’re entitled. If your long term disability carrier has failed to pay you the benefits you deserve, contact our long term disability lawyers at Michael’s Law Firm today.
