Mohamed Elbassiouni is a Personal Injury Lawyer and heads up the Accident Benefits team with a special interest in cases involving catastrophic impairment.
Mohamed’s practice is devoted to accident benefits claims on behalf of injured accident victims.
He has conducted numerous arbitration hearings before The Financial Services Commission of Ontario, ADR, and the LAT. During his career, Mohamed has successfully won cases for his clients at the Arbitration and Appeal levels.
Mohamed has worked on cases that were before Divisional Courts and the Ontario Court of Appeal.
He has more than 15 years of accident benefits experience. He is committed to helping those who have been treated unfairly and unreasonably denied their benefits by insurance companies.
He completed his Master of Law (LL.M) at Osgoode Hall Law School, York University. He holds a Certificate in Adjudication for Administrative Agencies, Boards & Tribunals.
Mohamed believes that when you understand the law, you can better apply it to serve your clients. He believes that it is the needs of his clients and their long-term quality of life that are central, above all else. Mohamed has helped injured victims resolve many complex cases over his career.
Mohamed has challenged recently the constitutionality of the Minor Injury Guideline (MIG) in Abyan and Sovereign Insurance Company. This is a unique decision as it happened to be the first decision from the Financial Services Commission of Ontario to declare that parts of the MIG are unconstitutional.
Very recently, he represented a client with a very complicated matter that involved Catastrophic impairment determination, Income Replacement Benefits, and other medical issues. In that hearing, the Insurance Company retained two well-respected and senior lawyers. Interestingly, not only that he helped his client win the Catastrophic Impairment determination and Income Replacemenet Benefits disputes, his client was awarded more than $95,000 in interest and awards.
Mohamed was repeatedly invited as a guest speaker at the Law Society of Ontario’s Legal research program and the Client-Centred Practice for Lawyers and Paralegals program.
He is fluent in English and Arabic.
