What the Toronto personal injury lawyers at Verkhovets Law apart from other Toronto personal injury lawyers who also want your business?

Personal Injury Law Firm Toronto, You Can Trust
Our personal injury lawyers have decades of experience dealing with insurance companies. We understand how they think and operate. We are very familiar with the tactics that insurance companies use to attempt to trivialize and minimize your injuries in the eyes of the court and jury.
When they deny, delay, and discount (offer you a mere fraction of what you are owed)—what one experienced personal injury lawyer at Toronto Verkhovets Law calls the “3 Ds”—for your personal injury claim, they make more money. Collect lots of premiums from clients; pay out as few claims as possible. It’s simple math.
Experienced Personal Injury Lawyers Toronto
But to personal injury lawyers, this comes as no surprise. Those who have sustained injuries wonder how this can be. And yet this is how personal injury law works in Canada.
The other factor that accident victims soon realize is that negotiating for accident benefits with a large insurance company with many departments and many claims adjusters is not only stressful but also frustrating. Whether injured victims suffered minor injuries or serious injuries, it’s as if in car accident cases, victims and insurance companies don’t speak the same language! There is wisdom in letting personal injury lawyers handle your motor vehicle accident claim.
We get results. Because we are fearless.
Our Personal Injury Services
Car Accidents, Motor Vehicle Accidents
Motor vehicle accidents can cause serious injury including: concussions, soft tissue damage, internal injuries, broken bones, whiplash, brain injury, spinal cord injuries sustained, injury, and wrongful death. Our personal injury lawyers Toronto can help you file personal injury claims for each of these.
Our personal injury lawyers help to coordinate your healthcare service providers after a motor vehicle accident not only to get the necessary reports insurance companies have asked for but also to speed up your recovery.
We know how you feel: the pain, the financial uncertainty, the stress of a drawn-out car accident insurance claim. You wonder, “When will I get back to normal from a personal injury?” or even “Will I ever get back to normal from my personal injuries?” As Toronto personal injury lawyers, we hear these questions a lot from our personal injury cases at our law firm.
At personal injury law firm Verkhovets Law, car accident clients and motor vehicle accident clients benefit from our vigorous advocacy: to help you get your life back on track.
Slip and Falls
To be successful in civil litigation though, your slip and fall injury must be the result of someone’s negligence. That’s the key, advise the personal injury lawyers at Verkhovets Law.
At a restaurant, you can slip and fall over the puckered or worn carpeting. At a department store, a pool of water on the washroom tile sends you flying backward. Or if an icy plaza in front of your barber shop isn’t salted, then you’re face-down. In each of these scenarios, negligence is present, say the Toronto personal injury lawyers at Verkhovets Law.
Some personal injury victims may be dismissive of slip and fall accidents, but they can lead to serious injury including brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and even wrongful death cases. We are not trying to be alarmist or sensational. Personal injury lawyers know the statistics for slip and fall accidents and at Verkhovets Law, we take fall claims seriously.
Long-Term Disability Claims
Our Toronto long-term disability lawyers have four words for you if you’re wrangling with an insurance company over long-term disability (LTD) benefits: “read the fine print.” This is good advice and always a starting point, whether you have a group LTD policy through your employer or you bought an LTD policy yourself, says a personal injury lawyer at Verkhovets Law.
It’s estimated more than half of the LTD claims in Canada are turned down at the application stage. You may be expecting your long-term disability insurance to honour your LTD policy and offer you the financial compensation you deserve. Instead, your long-term disability benefits are denied, sometimes citing a technicality in the policy.
If that happens don’t try and go it alone; it’s important to have a personal injury lawyer involved who will appeal and, if they have to, sue the insurer as a civil matter in the Superior Court of Justice.
Dog Bites, Animal Attacks
The law in Ontario is clear: the owner automatically must cover your damages and/or your dog’s veterinary bills. Emergency veterinary surgery and other medical expenses are expensive; plus, many victims in dog bite personal injury cases suffer from stress, including PTSD.
Once deprived of oxygen or damaged through a physical blow, a victim’s brain can have problems with eyesight, movement (or paralysis), inability to focus, memory problems, migraine headaches, and seizures as a result of a traumatic brain injury.
Traumatic brain injuries are common in the most serious car accidents, motor vehicle and motorcycle accidents,, slip and fall accidents, as well as diving and swimming pool accidents.
Emotions are swirling: grief, anger, despair. And then there are financial worries: how will you pay your bills and put the children through school?
Our personal injury lawyers can launch a wrongful death claim is a legal remedy for immediate family, dependents, spouses, life partners, and others suffering substantial emotional damages from the loss of a loved one.
