"Our areas of expertise are, quite simply, based on making you whole again"
1. Motor vehicle collisions

A number of factors contribute to the risk of collision, including vehicle design, speed of operation, road design, road environment, driver skill and/or impairment, and driver behaviour. Worldwide, motor vehicle collisions lead to death and disability as well as financial costs to both society and the individuals involved. We are skilled at handling limited tort, full tort and cases involving the uninsured.  We also handle claims involving defective designs of vehicles and/or collisions involving vehicles that are the subject of recalls.

2. Premises liability

Trip/Slip Fall incidents occur often and can sometimes be traced to the negligence or inattention of the property owner or maintainer of the property.  Resulting injuries can be serious and circumstances involving such incidents require immediate and thorough investigation.

3. Medical malpractice

Medical malpractice is professional negligence by act or omission by a health care provider in which the treatment provided falls below the accepted standard of practice in the medical community and causes injury or death to the patient, with most cases involving medical error. Such cases can also include neglect at nursing homes or rehabilitation facilities.  We work with teams of physicians to evaluate claims vigorously.

4. Dangerous medicines and devices

Thousands of Americans are injured every year by unsafe medicines or medical devices that were made and sold to the public without enough testing, safeguards or warnings. People affected by these unsafe products may have the right to sue for their pain and suffering and/or to receive other compensation related to their injuries.

5. Birth injuries

Birth injury lawsuits arise when babies are injured during birth or before birth by the careless or intentional acts of a doctor, nurse, hospital, or other healthcare provider. When these actions cause an injury to a baby
