Lawyers in Sudbury for Serious Accidents

Our Sudbury Personal Injury Lawyers represent victims who have suffered serious life changing injuries. We never represent insurance companies. Our team is dedicated to assisting victims and those who have been wronged.

We service all of Sudbury and the surrounding area. It’s our focus to assist victims with life-changing injuries and hold negligent parties accountable for their actions. We have significant experience in representing and negotiating the following types of accident claims:

Serious Car Accidents: Matt Lalande is a Sudbury personal injury trial lawyer who has been representing car accident victims in Sudbury and throughout Northern Ontario since 2003. Our firm has represented victims who have suffered serious injuries in single vehicle crashes, intersection accidents, rear-end collisions, highway crashes, t-bone accidents, speeding and stunt riding accident, distracted driving car accidents and head-on collisions.

Motorcycle Accidents: Our Sudbury personal injury lawyers have recovered millions for motorcycle accident victims since 2003. Motorcyclists are undoubtedly the most vulnerable ones on the road. Lacking the protection of a steel passenger compartment, a motorcyclist is much more vulnerable to serious injuries when struck by a car or truck – and when an accident happens, the results are often catastrophic and deadly. If you or a loved one has suffered serious injuries in a motorcycle accident, our Sudbury personal injury lawyers can help.

Trucking Accidents: Truck accidents are some of the deadliest of all motor vehicle accidents. Trucking accidents in the Sudbury area are often caused by such reasons as driver fatigue, excessive speed, tire blow outs, improperly loaded cargo or shifting cargo, distracted driving, mechanical failures or defective braking systems. Unfortunately, trucking accident victims suffer very serious injuries due to the seriousness of the impact – such a serious brain trauma, spinal cord injuries, amputation injuries, orthopedic and broken bone injuries as well as scarring and disfigurement injuries. If you or your loved one has been hurt in a trucking accident, it is important that you hire a Sudbury personal injury lawyer with trucking experience.

Highway 69 crashes: Accidents on highway 69 have unfortunately claimed many lives and been the cause of brutally serious injuries over the past 75 years. The highway, which extends from the highway 400 until just past Sudbury, has seen thousands of vehicle crashes and animal collisions which have involved trucks, cars, motorcycles and semi-trucks/commercial vehicles. Head-on crashes are the most common (particularly prior to the 4 lane expansion) and in the winter, when the drive can be treacherous due to blowing snow and snowsqualls. If you have lost a loved one in a HWY-69 highway crash, call our Sudbury lawyers today.

Serious Injuries Can Have Devastating Consequences

If you or a loved one suffer a devastating catastrophic injury, it will likely feel as though your world has been flipped upside down. Accidents are never predictable, and no one is ever prepared for the fallout. Unexpected life-changing consequences can therefore cause serious physical, emotional, psychological, and financial stress.

Regardless of what type of accident you were in, you deserve fair compensation for the suffering you have gone through. We know that no amount of financial compensation will make up for the pain. However, a fair settlement can help bring you some peace of mind while you recover.

We have worked with victims who have suffered severe injuries such as:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Quadriplegia
  • Head and neck injuries
  • Child and birth injuries
  • Amputations
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Severe burns
  • Facial fractures
  • Orthopedic injuries

Sudbury Spinal Cord Injury Specialists

Matt Lalande and his team of Sudbury personal injury lawyers have worked extensively with spinal cord injury victims in Sudbury and across Ontario. We have worked firsthand with those who suffer from paraplegia, quadriplegia, and other physical impairments. As a result, we have collected a versatile range of resources, connections, and knowledge in the particular needs spinal cord injury victims have.

If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury, you will feel as a part of a group in the hospital. Yet, when a person returns home, reality changes. He or she must now find a way to integrate with family, friends and the community at large. There is often a tremendous amount of anxiety returning home and an accident victim must now face all the unknowns of waiting for them in the real world. On top of that, there are health concerns and care considerations you will need to adapt.

Upon your return home after a spinal cord injury in Sudbury, you will have specific needs that must be met. These needs include house modifications, accessibility features, appropriate wheelchairs and equipment, and more. You will likely also require specific care services, and vehicle modifications later down the road. All of these costs can add up quickly: the lifetime cost of a spinal cord injury in Ontario can reach $5 million to $15 million. We can retain the appropriate medical personnel to ensure that your home is ready for your return, attendant care is hired and you have everything you need to ensure your comfort.

Leaving the Hospital is Only the First Step in Your Recovery

If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury, it’s important that you start the claims process early. This allows time to engage the appropriate occupational therapists who will assist with your or your loved ones discharge from the hospital or regional rehabilitation center to home.

Once an accident victim returns home and no longer within the safe walls of a rehab unit, the real adjustment to the injury begins. In the hospital, everything revolves around a disabled person and his or her new injury. Most needs are attended to, each problem is solved and any medical questions are answered.

Although most people with a serious injury experience a period of excitement when they first return home, this is often followed by a repeat of the set emotions previously faced in the early days of rehab: sadness, resentment, anger at the person that hurt you, frustration and anxiety. It’s important that the proper therapies are valuated, projected and paid for – and this is something that our lawyers can help with.

Our Sudbury Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help You Transition Home After Your Injury

In starting the claims and recovery process against the at-fault person that caused your pain, our Sudbury personal injury lawyers will ensure that all of your needs are met. We will also ensure that everything is paid for either by your own insurance company or the negligent party’s insurance company. We will leave no stone unturned and ensure that you are taken care of financially, presently and for the rest of your life.

As your legal representation, we will obtain the necessary documentation, evidence, reports, and medical examinations from you in order to carefully and confidentially analyze the details of your situation. This will allow us to provide a detailed valuation on your claim. It is also required to determine the maximum compensation to which you are entitled. From there, we will employ top medical and vocational professionals who may assist in strengthening your claim and proving the injuries the accident has caused.

We will ensure, for example, that your home is modified to accommodate your disability, your ambulatory aids are paid for, and any rehabilitation, either physical or psychological is paid for.

How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Sudbury Personal Injury Lawyer?

The answer is dependent on whether or not you suffered a serious life changing injury. If you been the victim of any sort of serious personal injury, we would be more than happy to evaluate your case. We will also consider the merits of your case, and determine whether or not you may be eligible for significant compensation for your injuries. Speaking to us costs nothing – and we will never ask you for any payment, at any time, during your case.

What Type of Compensation am I Entitled to?

Every personal injury claim is unique and based on varying circumstances. This is why we will need to speak with you or your family to obtain all of the details surrounding your accident or injury. After we have a comprehensive understanding of the specifics of your case, we can determine the claims that you are entitled to make.

Once your case is taken, you will never have to worry again. Insurance companies are notoriously difficult to deal with. They will often go at great lengths to underpay you or undervalue your claim.

Depending on the circumstances of your injury and the accident, you could be eligible for financial compensation such as:

  • Non-economic damages, including compensation for pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, and lost quality of life
  • Economic damages such as loss of income, loss of economic opportunity, direct job loss, loss of competitive advantage, loss of education, etc.
  • Past loss of income
  • Compensation for the loss of housekeeping and home maintenance if you are unable to take care of your home
  • Any medical treatments not covered by OHIP such as wheelchairs, power wheelchairs, maintenance, walkers, home modifications, medications, rehabilitation therapy, PSWs, and rehabilitation therapists
  • Punitive damages, which are generally considered in cases where the at-fault party has acted maliciously or dangerously, or beyond reckless disregard for others’ safety and well-being
