Accident claims

There are many different types of accident claims. You can be involved in an accident whilst sitting at your desk, or whilst operating machinery or working in a warehouse. Whatever the cause of your work accident injury, we are confident that Loyalty Law can put you in touch with the best Work Accident solicitors available.

Anyone injured in an auto accident is entitled to claim accident benefits to help pay for expensive therapies, rehab, personal care, and related treatments. The ability to advance a claim depends entirely on the severity of the injury. Right now there are three levels of coverage - minor injury, serious injury, and catastrophic injury. Future postings will deal with the first two categories, but this post is intended to discuss catastrophic impairments and the changes that have recently been recommended by Phil Howell, the CEO and Superintendent of the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (which I'll simply call the FSCO report), to the Minister of Finance, the provincial politician who is responsible for overseeing auto insurance in Ontario. .

Work accident claim experience to help you:

Loyalty Law's specialist work accident claims solicitors have experience of all types of claims, including:

Factory Accidents

If you are employed in a factory you understand that often your work involves dangerous machinery and can involve working with many different staff and vehicles. However, whilst you are at work, your employer has a duty to ensure that your safety is paramount. If your employer fails to keep you safe and you suffer an injury, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation for your factory accident. However, how do you know what you should do? How much will it cost you and what is the process?

Office Accidents

Usually you go to work in an office expecting the day to pass without accident or much interest. However, if you are involved in an accident in your office and suffer an injury, what should you do? Whether the accident is caused by defective office equipment such as a chair collapsing or faulty office shelving falling on you, we will be able to advise you whether you can make a claim for compensation, how much you can claim and how to do it.

Railway Accidents

If you are involved in work on the railways then you understand that by the nature of the job it can be dangerous. However, your employer has a duty to ensure that you are protected from any railway accidents as far as possible. If your employer has failed in this duty and you have suffered an injury then you may well be entitled to compensation. How much compensation will you receive? What should you do? Can you really keep 100% of your compensation and pay no costs?
