OUR MAIN AREAS OF PRACTICE

PERSONAL INJURY

Accidents and injuries can occur in any number of ways. Some common examples include authomobile accidents, slips and falls, trip and falls, and falling objects, although there are certainly many more ways for accidents to occur. Accidents are rarely intentional, but people involved in accidents frequently suffer injuries. If your injuries were caused by the neglect of another individual or party, you may be entitled to compensation for losses. Regardless of the circumstances of the accident, you owe it to yourself to inform yourself of your legal options with a free, no obligation consultation. If you are entitled to compensation, Patey Law Group will assist you obtaining what you deserve.

DISABILITY INSURANCE

Individuals often have extended or collateral benefits available to them either through their employer, or a private insurer, Including are Short-Term (STD) and (LTD) benefits. The primary purpose of these benefits is to provide people with replacement income in the event they are unable to work due to illness or other medical reasons. Despite planning ahead and obtaining the peace of mind these benefit plans offer, many individuals find that they face an uphill battle to receive these benefits. Often litigation is required to obtain the benefits that an individual is entitled to. If you have been denied STD or LTD benefits, you may still have options available to you to obtain your benefits. Patey Law Group has experience in insurance litigation for both STD and LTD benefits and will help you to obtain the benefits you are entitled to.

ACCIDENT BENEFITS

After being involved in an automobile accident, individuals are entitled to benefits through their own automobile insurance provider. Entitlement to these benefits exists, regardless of whether you were at fault for the accident or not. Despite being legally required to provide these benefits after an automobile accident, many insurers begin denying benefits shortly after the accident and when they may be needed most. Soon after being denied further benefits, individuals find themselves faced with the unfamiliar prospect of disputing the determination through the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO). If you have been denied accident benefits following an automobile accident, you likely have options available to dispute the insurers denial. Patey Law Group has extensive experience at FSCO and with assisting individuals in obtaining their accident benefits after a denial by their automobile insurer.
