Our Guelph personal injury lawyers have represented many seriously injured clients over the years who have been involved in many different types of accidents. From motor vehicle accidents to dog bites and slip and falls, we have seen many cases throughout our decades-long careers.
Because we focus on personal injury cases, our Guelph personal injury lawyers have the knowledge, expertise, resources, and experience to handle a wide variety of personal injury cases. This includes the most serious and complex catastrophic claims. Our personal injury lawyers have long realized that injured victims and their loved ones face monumental challenges and numerous obstacles after an accident. These obstacles may include financial loss, pain, psychological suffering, the recurring need for care, or rehabilitation. We understand that you are in a stressful situation, which can affect the healing process after your accident.
Remember, our consultations are always free, and when we take a case, we do not charge our clients any money – until our client wins. If you don’t win, then we don’t get paid.
At Lalande Personal Injury Lawyers, we take cases where victims have been seriously or catastrophically injured in collisions, incidents of negligence, and more. We work with many different types of serious accident victims, including:
Accidents are completely unexpected. For this reason, many people do not expect that a serious accident is going to happen to them. When they do occur, and an individual suffers severe injuries, the results can be devastating.
No one is ever fully prepared to wake up in the hospital with a physical impairment that makes even the smallest daily tasks seem excruciating. On top of that, there are serious psychological and emotional consequences that can arise from injuries of this magnitude, such as depression, social anxiety, self-esteem issues, post-traumatic stress disorder, or loss of self worth.
Our team of Guelph car accident lawyers have been assisting victims who have suffered life-changing, devastating injuries in motor vehicle accidents since 2003. While car accidents are unpredictable, most have one factor in common – they are almost always caused by someone else’s negligence. According to the CACP, more than 90% of car accidents in Canada are caused by human error.
Impaired driving is one of the leading criminal causes of death in Canada. Each day, 4 Canadians are killed in accidents caused by impaired drivers, and according to CAA, distracted driving kills even more Canadians in some areas. Speeding, stunt racing, careless driving, and failing to obey traffic signs are also negligent behaviours that can result in collisions. We have helped victims recover from many types of car accidents, including rollover accidents, t-bone collisions, head-on collisions, and rear-end accidents.
When another driver is negligent and causes severe, life-changing injuries to you or someone in your family, you have the right to hold them accountable for their reckless behaviour. Our personal injury lawyers are dedicating to ensuring you and your family receive a proper amount of compensation. We know financial benefits cannot help take away the physical pain, but it can help as you rebuild your lives as much as you possibly can.
Every accident is different and occurs under unique and unpredictable circumstances. Since 2003, we have assisted Guelph accident victims who have suffered devastating injuries, such as:
Sadly, some accidents have fatal consequences. When a loved one unexpectedly dies, the family must pick up the pieces. Not only does this include mourning the loss of their family member, but it also includes the financial stress that comes along. Bills will continue to pile up, along with expenses such as burial and funeral costs. As a result, families may begin to wonder how they are going to manage without the support of their lost loved one.
We have also represented family members of loved ones who have been wrongfully and tragically killed, as well as family members whose children have been the victims of serious accidents. If you are one of these family members, you have the right to sue the at-fault party for compensation on behalf of your loved one. We know that you are undergoing an extremely difficult time in your life, which is why we will act as your guide throughout the process to eliminate as much stress as we can.
We have been representing victims with life-changing injuries in Guelph for many years. Over this time, we have gathered a significant amount of resources and connections with the most trusted and reliable professionals in various industries. We work with some of the best experts, occupational therapists and life care planners.
Our support ranges from communicating on your behalf with your specialists, insurance carrier, and the hospital to arranging transportation and coordinating with life planners to create management plans for your rehabilitation. We also connect you with the most effective specialists in your area and can recommend trusted therapists in your area to guide your recovery as efficiently as possible.
There are no specific guidelines or references on what each personal injury claim is worth because every claim is completely different and unique. Every case depends on its own facts. In Ontario, there are different types of claims for compensation which you could make depending on the circumstances of your injury and the accident itself. Some of the compensation you could claim may include:
Since 2003, we have represented victims who have suffered terrible and unexpected life changing injuries. Too often we have seen injuries devastate individuals and families financially. Because of this, our Guelph personal injury lawyers stand as a voice of fairness for those who have been seriously hurt. We take great pride in representing individuals in the Guelph area whose lives have been turned upside down. Our mission in each and every case is to obtain the maximum level of financial compensation that we can for you in order to help better your life and protect your financial future.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a serious accident, you will need a Guelph personal injury lawyer to represent you. Insurance companies in Ontario are simply not in the business of handing over money because they think you deserve it. The main goal of insurance companies in Ontario is to maximize their stockholders’ profits, and not paying out claims. Insurance companies have the incentive to pay as little as possible to accident victims, which is why you need the assistance of an experienced injury lawyer to assist with your complex legal issues.
Our Guelph personal injury lawyers are dedicated and will help guide you through the legal process every step of the way. Whether you’ve been in a Guelph motorcycle accident, trucking accident, car accident, slip and fall or you have suffered extremely life-changing injuries such as a spinal cord injury or a brain injury, our personal injury law firm will help you find just compensation for your injuries and losses.
We understand the losses you’re going through, financially and physically. Our Guelph personal injury lawyers understand that you or your loved one might not be able to work. Therefore, they are unable to contribute to the family household. We understand that if you’ve been hurt by someone else’s negligence, your life will change. Even more, you should be compensated for that unexpected and uninvited change.
Remember, our consultations are free and without obligation. We are here to help, and we will always listen to what you have to say with an empathetic ear.
If you’re a Guelph resident and you have suffered a spinal cord injury, we can help. Since 2003, we have been litigating on behalf of spinal cord injury victims not only in Guelph, but across all of Ontario. We understand the spinal cord injury will affect every aspect of your life. Your spinal cord is the major pathway connecting your brain to the rest of your body. When that pathway is damaged, it can affect any or all of the muscles below your level of spinal cord injury. As a result, you may become unable to use those parts of your body.
We understand that having a spinal cord injury is a catastrophic event that changes your life unexpectedly. As such, your injury will present you with challenges you thought you never would have to face. Suddenly, you are unable to move your arms and legs and tasks that were simple and taken for granted before your injury. Small tasks such as reaching for a fork or a glass, brushing your teeth, or even getting out of bed to face the day are now very difficult – if not impossible.
It’s important that you retain a spinal cord injury lawyer before your discharge to assist with the financial cost of re-evaluating various aspects of your life. Along with your occupational therapists, case manager and social worker, our Guelph personal injury lawyers will work with you to ensure your discharge is safe and secure. You’ll need to modify your home and have full time care to assist with your daily activities. Additionally, it’s equally important that whatever you require be fully paid for by the negligent party’s insurance company and your own auto insurer (assuming you are involved in a motor vehicle accident). More likely than not, you will need assistance with:
Ultimately, our goal as Guelph Personal Injury Lawyers is to fight for maximum compensation for you so you can obtain all of the modalities you need for a safe and healthy life, community reintegration, daily activities, recreation and assistive technologies.
No matter what type of case you come to us with, we will always meet with you for free. We work on a contingency basis: you don’t pay us any fees unless you win your case.

You are able to ask us any questions you have and get honest, transparent answers. Ask us as many questions as you need, and we will try our best to help you understand your options.

As experienced legal professionals, we understand that it is essential to work with a lawyer you are comfortable with. Lawyers are not a one-size-fits-all. Further, not everyone fits on either side. We will also never withhold any information you may need simply because you have not hired us yet. Everyone we meet receives the information they need, no matter what.
