Toronto Personal Injury And Accident Lawyers

  Learn More

The personal injury lawyers at Verkhovets Law have been serving clients in Greater Toronto and across Ontario with fearless advocacy, working for those whose lives have been changed by an accident caused by someone else’s negligence.

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.

The right personal injury lawyer to represent you is critical. Insurance companies are accountable to their shareholders, not you, their insured. When they deny, delay, and discount (give you a mere fraction of what you are owed) your personal injury claim, they make more money.


It comes as a surprise to many people after they have been injured that the reason they need a personal injury lawyer is to fight with insurance companies—sometimes their own insurance company—for compensation for a legitimate personal injury claim.

We are fearless. And we get results.
We get results. Because we are fearless.
We use our knowledge and experience as personal injury lawyers to advocate for you, protect you, and strengthen your legal case. If your case won’t settle through negotiation, we are not afraid to argue your case in court.

Car Accidents

At Verkhovets Law, car accident lawyers, our clients benefit from personal service. We understand what you are going through. 

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?” or even “Will I ever get back to normal?” 

At Verkhovets Law, our clients benefit from our vigorous advocacy to help you get your life back on track.

Slip and Falls

Slip and Fall

Our slip and fall accident lawyers at Verkhovets Law know that you can trip and fall anywhere at any time.

At a restaurant, you can slip and fall over the puckered 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.

To be successful in litigation, your slip and fall injury must be the result of someone’s negligence. That’s the key.

Long-Term Disability

Long-Term Disability

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.”

It’s estimated more than half of the claims in Canada are turned down at the application stage.

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

Dog Bites, Animal Attacks

The Toronto dog bite lawyers at Verkhovets Law know how terrifying it is to experience an encounter with a vicious dog. One minute you’re strolling with your labradoodle on his leash and out of nowhere, you’re fending off a horrific dog bite attack – leaving both you and your dog with serious injuries.

Apologies or denials of blame don’t matter.

The law in Ontario is clear: the owner automatically must cover your damages and/or your dog’s veterinary bills.

Brain Injuries

The Toronto brain injury lawyers at Verkhovets Law know that a traumatic brain injury is always very serious.

Once deprived of oxygen, 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, slip and fall accidents, as well as diving and swimming pool accidents.

Wrongful Death

The Toronto wrongful death lawyers at Verkhovets Law know how devastating it is to lose a loved one in an untimely way due to someone else’s negligence.

Emotions are swirling: grief, anger, despair. And then there are financial worries: how will you pay your bills and put the children through school?

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.
