Toronto, Ontario

Canada’s largest City, and the capital of Ontario, Toronto is home to over 2.5 million residents in the City; and over 5.5 million if you count the GTA. Toronto was established in 1793 by the British and was known as York. It has since evolved into one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world, and known as the most multicultural city in the world. Toronto has 2 China Towns, a Little Italy, Greek Town, Little India, Little Portugal, Korea Town and other multicultural districts making it a delight to visit. Over 99,999 new immigrants come to Toronto each year. Toronto’s emergency 911 service is equipped to field calls in over 145 different languages to accommodate the diverse amount of languages spoken in the city.

Toronto is the financial centre of Canada and is home to the largest stock exchange in Canada. Toronto is also home to Ontario’s government which sits at Queen’s Park. Toronto is also the epicentre for lawyers in Toronto as it’s home to the Ontario Court of Appeal and the Law Society of Upper Canada. Toronto is also the home for the head office of Goldfinger Law and its personal injury lawyers. Many large law firms are headquartered in Toronto. Toronto became Toronto when it was incorporated in 1834; and later amalgamated its communities of East York, Scarborough, North York, Etobicoke and York to form the “mega-city” of Toronto. Geographically, Toronto is around 631 square kilometres in distance, with a northern border or Steeles Avenue, a southern border of Lake Ontario, an Eastern border of the Rouge River and a Western Border of Etobicoke Creek/Highway 427. L

ike most Canadian cities, Toronto has a fierce winter which can make road conditions difficult for Toronto and GTA area drivers. This can result in a various personal injury accidents including car accidents, slip and fall accidents, bicycle accidents and motorcycle accidents. The density of Toronto is also problematic as all of the cars, bikes and pedestrians are competing to use the same infrastructure including roads, highways, and sidewalks. When all these vehicles are competing to use the same infrastructure, it can result in a large number of car, motorcycle or bicycle accidents in Toronto. These cases will require the assistance of a personal injury lawyer such as the lawyers of Goldfinger Law. Toronto has a wide network of hospitals including Ontario’s trauma centre, Sunnybrook Hospital and St. Mike’s Hospital. Both hospitals are known to have excellent emergency departments and head injury clinics.

Goldfinger Law has donated money to these head injury clinics at local Toronto hospitals. When people have been hurt or injured in a serious car accident such as a traumatic brain injury or paraplegia in Toronto, they are usually taken to, or seen by the great doctors at one of these hospitals. After discharge, accident victims can be taken to one of Toronto’s great long term rehabilitation facilities such as Toronto Rehab, Lyndhurst, West Park, Bloorview or Providence Rehab. All of these facilities provide excellent care for accident victims who have been involved in serious car accidents in Toronto.
