Will Davidson LLP’s Areas of Expertise
Long Term Disability Denials
When an injury victim is no longer able to work, long-term disability (LTD) benefits provide an income to supplement savings and help maintain a standard of living. Many Canadians are eligible for some form of LTD benefits, either through their insurer, their employer, or the Canada Pension Plan. Unfortunately, benefits applications are sometimes denied, delayed, significantly reduced, or terminated. In these cases, a personal injury lawyer can bring your case before the appropriate bodies to ensure you have full access to the benefits you require.
Medical malpractice is among the most challenging and complex areas of personal injury law in Canada. Plaintiffs in these cases must prove that they were owed a duty of care by the defendant care provider; that the defendant failed to provide the appropriate standard of care; that damages occurred as a result of this failure; and that the damages were reasonably foreseeable. It often takes years for medical malpractice cases to be resolved.
Will Davidson LLP’s team of medical malpractice lawyers has experience in the following areas:
- Birthing injuries and birth trauma
- Misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis
- Medication error
- Surgical and post-operative treatment areas
- Negligent nursing home care
- Injuries caused by faulty medical products
Motor Vehicle Accidents
This service areas encompasses a wide variety of accidents and injuries, including car accidents, ATV and snowmobile accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, boating accidents, aircraft accidents, and traffic accidents involving cyclists and pedestrians.
Motor vehicle accidents are an important part of any personal injury lawyer’s practice. They account for a large number of the serious injuries and untimely deaths that occur across Canada. Will Davidson LLP has an established track record of success in personal injury lawsuits involving motor vehicle accidents – contact us today if you or someone you know has been injured in a crash.
Slip and Fall Injuries
Slip and fall accidents might sound harmless, but they cause hundreds of serious injuries every year in Ontario. In some cases, they are caused by the negligence or error of a liable party. A person who falls and breaks a bone in an ice-covered parking lot, for example, could have a legitimate claim. So too could a person who trips on loose flooring in a place of business or a raised, uneven sidewalk in their neighbourhood. The validity of your claim will depend on the severity of your injury and the specifics of your accident – call now to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer.
Pet owners in Ontario are responsible for their animals and liable for the injuries they inflict. The most common form of pet injury by a wide margin is a dog bite. Will Davidson LLP has successfully helped dog bite victims access compensation for the injuries they sustained. As in other forms of personal injury law, the amount of compensation depends on the severity of the injury. Contact us today or visit our dog bite page for more information.
The term ‘catastrophic’ generally refers to injuries that permanently alter the victim’s ability to live a full and happy life. These can include brain injuries, spinal injuries, orthopaedic injuries (injuries to the bone or the tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and muscles that support the bone), and childhood injuries that push a young person’s life off course.
Catastrophically injured individuals often require long-term medical, rehabilitative, and attendant care, which can be extremely expensive. It is the duty of a catastrophic injury lawyer to ensure their client’s medical and financial needs are covered throughout recovery.
Mass Torts and Class Actions
Mass tort and class action lawsuits are an important part of Will Davidson LLP’s history. We have been at the forefront of this form of personal injury law since it was introduced in Ontario in the early 1990s. Since then, we have represented plaintiffs in numerous high-profile cases, including proceedings against product manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, and airlines.
Mass tort and class action lawsuits are similar but subtly different. Class action lawsuits require “commonality,” meaning plaintiffs’ must have been injured in a similar manner. In a mass tort lawsuit, plaintiffs can pursue individual claims against a common defendant, and may even use different lawyers. The compensation awarded may also differ by case.
There are few crimes more damaging than acts of sexual violence. In Canada, survivors of sexual assault have the right to pursue financial compensation for the damages they have incurred. The results of civil sexual assault claims are not reliant on a guilty verdict in the criminal justice system. Contact us today to learn more about your options.
The loss of a loved one is a universally painful experience. When that loss occurs as a result of the negligence or malpractice of another party, the pain may be even more profound. While nothing can replace what you have lost, a civil wrongful death lawsuit can help bring closure and provide financial support while you negotiate your new reality.
Fire, Flood, and Property Loss
When a home or business is damaged by a flood or fire, owners turn to their insurance providers for financial relief. Unfortunately, there’s no guarantee that your insurance claim will proceed smoothly – it’s not uncommon for insurers to deny or limit compensation by questioning the validity of your claim.
Will Davidson LLP has years of experience representing both policy holders and insurance providers. If you believe that your coverage has been wrongfully withheld, contact us for help.
