When Goldfinger Law was first established, we made a promise never to accept cases on behalf of insurance companies. We continue to honor that promise, which is something that we take very seriously. Our law firm prides itself on fighting for the rights of ordinary people and seeing that our clients get the outcomes that they deserve. As a result of our tenacity, hard work, skill, and commitment to excellence, we have built a reputation both inside and outside the courtroom, which has seen us recover millions of dollars on behalf of our clients and their loved ones.

Personal Injury

In addition to physical pain, accident victims may suffer emotional and mental harm, and they may incur substantial costs. Many types of accidents can cause injuries, but some are more common than others. For example, motor vehicle collisions, slip and fall accidents, dog bites, and defective products frequently harm people throughout Ontario. If you have suffered a serious injury, our Toronto personal injury attorneys can help you pursue compensation from an insurance company or from the party that caused your harm. It is important to act promptly, since generally a victim must pursue a lawsuit for damages within two years of the date of their injury.

Car Accidents

Most car accidents result from careless driving. A victim who suffers harm in a car accident that was caused by a driver’s reckless or careless acts may be able to recover damages for his or her injuries. To prove liability for the accident, the injured person must establish that the driver acted in an unreasonably dangerous way, such as violating the provincial Highway Traffic Act. The victim also must show that they would not have been injured if the driver had used reasonable care. A victim of a car accident may be able to recover compensation for damages such as past and future medical costs, lost income, and pain and suffering.

Truck Accidents

Truck accidents may result from issues such as overloaded trucks, inadequate braking ability, driver fatigue, or improper turns. Due to the immense size and weight of commercial trucks, truck accidents often cause catastrophic injuries. For example, people involved in truck accidents may suffer traumatic brain injuries, organ failure, fractures, internal bleeding, and spinal cord injuries. When an accident involves a truck, there may be multiple parties liable for the harm caused by the accident, such as the driver, the trucking company, and a truck manufacturer. A personal injury attorney in Toronto or the surrounding areas can identify all the parties that may be at fault.

Long-Term Disability Claims

Many people make the wise decision to purchase long-term disability insurance. They expect that if they suffer an injury that prevents them from working, insurance benefits will assist them in making sure that their needs are met. Unfortunately, however, not all insurance companies honor their obligations. Claims for long-term disability benefits are often undervalued or denied, leaving policy holders with the feeling that they have no recourse. Therefore, a claimant seeking to obtain long-term disability benefits should engage an attorney to facilitate the process of obtaining a timely and accurate evaluation of their claim.

Motorcycle Accidents

There are many benefits to using a motorcycle as a means of transportation, but when a motorcyclist is involved in an accident, they may sustain significant injuries. Motorcycle accidents are often caused by drivers failing to yield to motorcyclists or failing to notice motorcyclists when changing lanes or turning. These accidents also can be caused by unsafe roadways or defects in a motorcycle that make it dangerous. If you were injured in a motorcycle accident, in addition to recovering benefits from your insurance company, you might be able to recover damages from the party that caused the accident if you can prove liability.

Bicycle Accidents

Cycling is increasing in popularity, but the roads in Ontario are not always safe for bicyclists. Bike accidents can cause lasting injuries that require extensive medical treatment and may result in an inability to earn an income. If you were injured in a bicycle accident, you might be able to recover compensation for the cost of the medical treatment that you underwent for your injuries, as well as treatment that you may need in the future. You may also be awarded damages for your pain and suffering and any loss of income that you suffered as a result of your injuries. Our Toronto personal injury lawyers will pursue the full scope of damages that may be available.

Pedestrian Accidents

The Highway Traffic Act imposes a duty of care on drivers to avoid harming pedestrians. When a driver strikes a pedestrian, it is presumed that the driver was negligent. Therefore, a driver who strikes a pedestrian will bear the burden of proving that the accident was not caused by his or her negligence. This shifting of burdens makes it easier for a plaintiff to recover compensation. Drivers who cause pedestrian accidents may attempt to divert blame to the pedestrian by arguing that their negligence caused the accident. Our attorneys know how to fight back against these efforts.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents may occur due to liquid, debris, or snow or ice on a walking surface. Under Ontario law, anyone who controls or occupies a property has a duty of care to prevent harm to people lawfully entering the property. The precise duty owed will vary depending on what is reasonable under the circumstances, the nature of the property, and the relationship between the party that occupies the property and the injured person. If the duty is breached, the occupier of the property can be held liable for the resulting harm. These claims are often complex, which makes it important to retain a personal injury lawyer in Toronto who can preserve vital evidence and build persuasive arguments on your behalf.
