As we trudge through the dark months of winter, looking hopefully ahead to the more temperate months of spring and summer, things start to look a little brighter here in Toronto. Unfortunately, for the time being, the winter has brought us slippery roads, sidewalks and extra fatigue that can cause workplace accidents on jobsites. While fatigue may not seem like a big deal, in certain situations it can actually be very dangerous: if you’re driving, you need to be alert; if you’re working on a jobsite you need to focus; if you’re walking on an icy day, you need to be mindful of where you step. Even though most Canadians are used to dealing with the pitfalls of winter, there’s always a chance that we’ll let our guard down for a second and end up the unlucky victim of an accident.
When you are injured, it can be difficult to know what to do to ensure that your interests are covered and that you not end up broke and unable to work in the coming weeks and months. Even once an injury has healed, back to work disputes will often arise, and this can further delay the flow of steady paychecks. Fortunately, Goodman Elbassiouni LLP presents you with a one stop shop for all of the advice that you will need after an injury.
Car Accidents & Slip and Fall
Let’s say your injury was incurred when you slipped on somebody else’s property; our lawyers and licensed paralegals are familiar with the Occupier’s Liability Act, which pertains to cases of this nature. Car accident? Every workers compensation lawyer on our staff is extremely familiar with the Statutory Accident Benefits system and all of its subtle small print.
While we’ve certainly spent our fair share of sweat and concentration on automobile accidents and slip and fall cases, the majority of our cases pertain to the world of WSIB law. For this reason, we employ paralegals who used to work directly with the WSIB, so that when your case is being looked over, our staff know exactly how much you are eligible for and exactly how to get it.
Goodman Elbassiouni LLP Makes It Easy
Often, when people start to sort out how to obtain fair compensation for the trauma they have been through, they are confronted with overwhelming bureaucratic hurdles. Furthermore, if you have been hurt and are trying to focus on your recovery, stressing about whether or not the WSIB is going to rule in your favour can drain off energy that you should be spending on physiotherapy and relaxation.
