Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer
If you have suffered injuries as a result of another person’s failure to comply with their duties towards you, you may be entitled to pursue a claim. If you or your loved one have been injured on someone’s property because they failed to notify you of a danger, or if the driver of a car was negligent and caused a collision, or if you slip in a store or restaurant because a spill was not cleaned up, or you used a product that was defective, you have rights at law. The first step would be to consult with a lawyer to determine whether the cause of your injuries is considered negligent by the law. If you have the necessary elements to sue, it means that the circumstances that resulted in your injuries give rise to “a cause of action”. If you have a cause of action, a lawyer can begin taking the necessary steps to help you recover for the damages that you have suffered.
An experienced lawyer can:
- review the impact that your injuries have had on your life;
- consider the way courts have ruled in the past on similar situations;
- review your medical assessment;
- review medical opinions; and
- can determine a reasonable assessment of your claim.

Dealing With the Unexpected
With today’s busy lives in major urban centres, hazards can be found almost everywhere. Snow and ice build-up, wet floors, faulty construction, car accidents, etc. While most of us go through our days without major injuries, the unexpected can happen, and the consequences can be daunting. If you or your loved one has suffered from an injury, it is important to consult with a lawyer to know your legal rights. Oftentimes, people are not equipped to deal with the injury, in addition to the possibility of a long recovery period, the costs of care, the costs of medication, the need for special equipment, and loss of income. It can be a time of significant stress for you and your loved ones, when it should really be about recovery. This is particularly heightened in extreme cases such as disfigurement, dismemberment, and wrongful death.
The reality is that medical injuries are not always easily detectible especially at the outset. So it may take some to establish the true extent of your injuries. You need to see medical professionals, sometimes specialists, determine the proper course of treatment, receive the appropriate therapy, and allow your body time to heal. It can be a lengthy and expensive process. Consulting a lawyer during the early stages of an injury can be helpful to ensure that you have access to the necessary funding for the medical treatments that you need for your recovery. Lawyers experienced in the field of personal injury will have the knowledge to guide you through the process. Let an experienced, compassionate personal injury lawyer advocate on your behalf. At Noohi Law, we understand that you are going through a difficult time, and we want to help. We only get paid if you do, so you do not have to worry about legal costs your family cannot afford.

Slip & Fall
If you are injured in a slip and fall on someone’s private property, commercial property, or even on public property, you can commence a tort case – which means you can start a legal action. The injury can range from a twisted ankle to serious head trauma or chronic pain. The cause of the injury can range from a torn carpet, to unmarked hazards and dangers. If this was a preventable injury, notice was required, laws were broken or requirements not met, you have legal rights to help you recover from the cost of your injury. In fact, there are a number of reasons that a person suffers an injury for which they can be compensated by law, and that compensation can help cover, amongst other things, the cost of medical fees, out of pocket expenses, lost wages, and future loss of income.
Usually, you are required to start your lawsuit within two years of the incident. However, this limitation period does not apply the same if you were injured on municipal property. In that case, the municipality places their own time restrictions within which they must be notified of the incident, or you may lose the opportunity to recover for damages. At Noohi Law, we have more than 16 years’ of experience dealing with the various requirements to bring a legal action for personal injury. Whether your needs are better served with a settlement or pursuing matter in court, we will represent your interests passionately and assertively. Contact us for your free consultation today.
Motor Vehicle & Pedestrian Accidents
If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident or you are injured as a pedestrian, you might be entitled to ask for compensation for the costs associated with your injury. You will be required to provide medical proof of your injuries and explain how those injuries have interfered with your life, such as your ability to work, conduct housekeeping tasks, and general daily activities. It is important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible following your accident to know your rights and your duties. Consult with a lawyer before you speak with your insurance adjuster. At Noohi Law, we have successfully represented many cases throughout the GTA for clients who were seriously injured in an accident.
We work with all kinds of motor vehicle injuries, including but not limited to:
- Car Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Drunk/Intoxicated Driving Accidents
- Public Transit Accidents
- Hit-And-Run Accidents
- Bicycle Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Texting and Driving
- Pedestrian Accidents
Accident Benefits Under No Fault Claims
The term ‘no-fault’ in the Ontario car insurance system means that in the event that someone is injured in an automobile accident, you make the claim for damages against your own insurance company. It does not mean that no one is at fault for the accident. Regardless of who was at fault, your insurance company is responsible to pay for your benefits. The type and amount of benefits that you can receive will depend on your coverage and the severity of the injuries you have suffered. If you are injured as a passenger and have your own automobile insurance, you can make the claim through your own insurer. However, if you do not have your own insurance, then you make the claim to the insurance of the vehicle in which you were a passenger.
Generally, you can seek compensation for:
- Medical and rehabilitation services
- Loss of income from disability
- Death & Funeral Expenses
- Caregiver benefits
- Non-earner benefits
- Education costs
- Housekeeping Benefits
If your claim has been denied, contact our experienced team at Noohi Law and get your free consultation. We get paid if you win, so you do not have the hassle of legal fees upfront.
A catastrophic injury is typically considered a type of injury that will have serious life-long consequences. Catastrophic injuries can include head trauma, loss of limbs, spinal cord injury, or anything that will have a serious impact on the way in which you can carry on in your life. If you or a loved one have recently suffered a catastrophic injury, you are eligible to receive higher benefits than those with less severe injuries. Due to the nature of this type of injury, you will likely face much longer recovery times, more extensive rehabilitation, higher medical costs, and possibly require lifelong help. Despite the severity of the injuries, it is not guaranteed that insurance companies will give you everything your coverage allows or the compensation to which you are entitled. Experienced legal representation will allow you and your loved ones to focus on the healing process without compromising your rights. At Noohi Law, we believe that compassion and trust are critical during this difficult period, and we would like to put our experience to work in your favour. Contact us for a free consultation.
