When you are injured at work and your claim comes in at much less than you’d anticipated – or even worse, is outright denied – you need to have a backup plan. If you’re not familiar with the WSIB, let us fill you in: the WSIB (Workplace Safety Insurance Board) is the branch of provincial government in Ontario that deals with assessing workplace injury claims and sending out compensation cheques. If you’ve never heard of the WSIB, congratulations, it means that you’ve managed to get this far without hurting yourself on the job.
If you are familiar with the WSIB – because you’re a naturally cautious person or because you’ve had to deal with them before – then you probably know that while the reach of its bureaucracy is ambitious, it does not always rule fairly, likely due to the fact that it is stretched thin by so many claims. Here at Goodman Elbassiouni LLP in Toronto and the GTA, we are here to support you when something goes wrong with your claim and you need to appeal. If you feel the WSIB has not assessed your case fairly, remember, you are not helpless, you need not simply accept what fate hands you and grin and bear, you have options. The best option, indeed, is to reach out to a personal injury law firm such as yours truly.
While our staff’s expertise is spread across three broad areas: slip and fall, WSIB law and automobile accidents, we handle a lot of WSIB cases and are bolstered by a strong staff of paralegals who have worked with the WSIB in the past, and thus, are familiar with the painstaking protocol and the fine print. If you’re looking for a really good workers compensation lawyer and the services of top WSIB experts, our law firm is second to none! Whether or not you feel you are in the right, you won’t get far unless you enlist the help of someone who knows the system inside out.
In the city of Toronto, Ontario, there is a tremendous amount of construction – condo and otherwise – going on at all times. Between all of the workers on all of the job sites, there are bound to be some injuries. Here on the Goodman Elbassiouni LLP blog, we’ve often written of prevention methods and proper safety training as a means to avoid injury. However, statistically speaking, a certain number of accidents and injuries is simply unavoidable. Thus, we take it upon ourselves to provide a service to injured workers in need when the system fails.
While you may be dubious of accepting help from a paralegal, rather a lawyer, you should reconsider. Paralegals also need to pass a rigorous exam before they can work at a law firm. Paralegals take on the brunt of the day-to-day work when we have a full caseload; they can be an inexhaustible source of knowledge concerning the minutiae of the WSIB.
If you’re hurt on the job and you need a good slip and fall lawyer in Toronto, call Goodman Elbassiouni LLP or fill out an assessment on our website today. Because we work on a contingency basis, we won’t charge you a cent until you have a satisfactory settlement. Don’t leave your fate to chance, call Goodman Elbassiouni LLP and fight for your right to fair compensation!
