Personal injury claims involve diverse legal issues. For example, personal injury is the subject of most motor vehicle and occupier’s liability, and many product liability and professional liability, actions. Our expertise, at all levels, in each of these areas provides us with the skills to effectively handle any and all personal injury claims.
We are experts in personal injury litigation at every level, and in every area. Our firm has dozens of lawyers, from 1st year calls to senior partners, who regularly handle person injury claims. For over 40 years we have defended cases ranging from the most minor to the most catastrophic injuries. Our lawyers have vast trial and appeal experience, at all levels of court. However, we are equally skilled in alternate dispute resolution. All of our lawyers have extensive negotiation and mediation experience and training.
We provide a wide range of services for our clients and their representatives and agents. We give advice prior to the commencement of legal actions and, once commenced, throughout the actions and in all levels of Court, from Small Claims to the Supreme Court of Canada. However, we understand that our clients’ interests are often best served through efficient resolution of matters. Accordingly, we provide expert advice and expertise in all aspects of dispute resolution including, most commonly, direct negotiation, mediation and arbitration.

- Defence Research Institute
