Toronto Subway Accident Lawyers
Call the firm that’s been fighting for the injured since 2001
Toronto is a big city, and many people get around using the subway system. When there’s an accident, victims can be left seriously injured, and recovering compensation after an injury can be a complicated process. The experienced subway accident lawyers at Smitiuch Injury Law fight for the rights of the injured.
If you’ve been injured on the Toronto subway, you can be impacted physically, emotionally and financially. Medical expenses can add up quickly and if you can’t work, there is less income coming in. Our firm knows that this is a difficult time in your life, and we are dedicated to helping you get the best possible outcome.
A subway accident injury could be caused by:
- A crash between subway cars
- Abrupt stops
- Electrical malfunctions
- Malfunctioning doors, escalators or turnstiles
- Poor lighting
- Wet or slippery floors
- Obstructed walkways
Recovering compensation after a Toronto subway accident can be complicated. There may be many parties involved. These can include the subway car driver, the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC), the manufacturer of the subway car or parts on it or third parties such as maintenance workers. Each party could have separate insurance companies and lawyers.
Toronto personal injury lawyers who fight for your rights
Our first concern is that you get the medical care you need for your injuries. We want you to be able to recover from your injuries as much as possible. Our lawyers can connect you with doctors, specialists and therapists in the Toronto area.
As your medical expenses start to add up from your Toronto subway accident, we can help you apply for accident benefits. You may be eligible for medical and rehabilitation, attendant care and income replacement benefits up to certain policy limits. We help you fight back against insurance company attempts to limit the benefits you receive.
Our experienced Toronto lawyers can also help you take legal action against negligent parties to recover financial compensation. Negligent parties typically deny responsibility and don’t admit to doing anything wrong. They may even blame you for what happened.
Insurance companies will try to pay you as little as possible, and there are many tactics they use to try to limit your compensation. They may question the seriousness of your injuries or argue that they were pre-existing. Or they may offer you a settlement that falls far short of covering the total damages you suffered in your Toronto subway accident.
