At McNally Gervan we have demonstrated we will take on tough cases. We are not a factory where the goal is to take on only the easy cases and to settle them at the earliest opportunity. Our lawyers have taken on cases involving road design, the design of construction equipment and cars, and boating accidents. We have the breadth of knowledge and the resources to take on these cases and the determination to see them through.
Slip and Fall or Trip and Fall Accidents
The lawyers at McNally Gervan LLP understand the system and are here to help accident victims get the support they need to get back on track and the compensation they deserve. Compensation for serious motorcycle accidents often includes damages for pain and suffering, past and future losses of income,
Dangerous Premises Claims
Property owners and occupiers have a responsibility to make sure visitors are reasonably safe when on the premises. Usually, the legal obligation is to take reasonable steps to ensure that the premises are safe. When the people in control of the premises fail to meet that reasonable standard, they may be held legally liable for the damages that result.
Boating accidents are too frequent, and frequently avoidable. Statistics indicate that far too many boating accidents are the result of impaired operation (alcohol or drugs) or a lack of familiarity with basic maritime safety rules and regulations.
Diving and Swimming Accidents
Diving and swimming are common activities that can result in serious injuries. At McNally Gervan LLP we have represented accident victims and their families in claims arising from swimming and diving accidents across the province.
Airplanes are one of the safest forms of transportation available. But accidents do happen involving planes, either in the air or on the ground. And while the survivability of airplane accidents keeps improving, these accidents can still result in serious physical or psychological injuries.
Long Term Disability Insurance Claims
Every year nearly 50,000 drivers and passengers in Ontario suffer injuries in car accidents. Even though cars keep getting safer, hundreds of people die in car accidents each year in Ontario and thousands more suffer serious injuries that change their lives and the lives of their family members forever.
Life Insurance Disputes
The last thing a grieving family needs is a dispute with a life insurance company. Unfortunately, insurance companies do deny claims under life insurance policies, placing the grieving family in the position of having a legal challenge on their hands when they are trying to deal with all of the many issues that arise on the loss of a loved one.
Insurance is not limited to car accident claims. Most families and businesses purchase insurance to provide them with financial assistance and compensation if they suffer a fire loss.
Professional Negligence Claims
Claims against professionals, such as financial advisers, lawyers, engineers and architects, have become more common in recent years. This is due to a combination of factors including an increasing reliance on professional advice and the complexity of the work professionals perform.
Assault and Abuse Claims
Victims of assaults or abuse should always report those crimes to the police or other authorities. But whether criminal charges have been filed or not, victims of assault or abuse should consult with a lawyer or law firm with experience in handling these cases
