Motor vehicle accidents – St. Catharines
A car accident can be life altering. Injuries and medical complications may happen immediately or develop over time. As a result, you or a loved one can be left with permanent challenges and losses.

Slip and falls (Occupier’s Liability cases) – St. Catharines
Falls happen every day, but that doesn’t mean someone isn’t responsible. Occupiers of a property, whether it be owners, tenants, managers, cleaners or winter maintenance companies, are expected to comply with guidelines designed to ensure the safety of visitors or users. If you have experienced a slip and fall accident, there is a chance it was due to the negligence of someone else. If the slip and fall was due to another party’s negligence, it is only fair they compensate you for the damage and take appropriate steps to ensure the property does not remain dangerous. Our personal injury lawyers are always on hand to help you handle your case.
Long Term Disability Claims – St. Catharines
No one expects a long-term illness or debilitating injury. When you insure yourself against long-term disability, however, you are actually preparing for the worst, as everyone should. Many insurance companies have made the process of claiming long-term disability benefits arduous. The complicated
nature of such claims does not help matters either. Many claimants do not know what constitutes a long-term disability, nor the coverage for which they are eligible. Insurance companies can take advantage of this and hold back on honouring their legal obligation to assist victims in time of need. Our experienced personal injury lawyers are ready to help you fight for what is yours.
Property loss claims – St. Catharines
We buy insurance for our homes and businesses to protect against loss and provide the peace-of-mind of knowing that, if the unimaginable happens, we have financial coverage. Water damage claims, fire claims and theft are some of the most common property losses. Most people will not know, however, what is covered under their policy, nor how much insurance they have until after a loss occurs. Insurance companies are happy to accept your premium payments, but when you make a claim, they can be difficult. In some cases, they may delay payments and, in others, deny the claim.
Our lawyers have successfully secured two rare and hard-to-obtain awards for punitive damages where insurance companies have wrongly denied insurance claims. Our lawyers are ready to ensure you are awarded with what you deserve.
