If you've suffered a personal injury, you're looking for a particular type of counsel. You certainly need legal knowledge, experience and strong, agile representation in court. But you also need compassion. At Stevenson Whelton MacDonald & Swan, you begin to get the hearing you deserve when you step into our offices.
Our personal injury group is led by James Newland, senior counsel with over three decades of experience working exclusively in the areas of personal injury and medical malpractice. Our team is dedicated to getting you the compensation you deserve following a serious injury.
Giving You a Voice
When you meet with one of our lawyers, you'll get a comprehensive overview of the options available to you, and the related risks and benefits. We understand the turmoil you are experiencing - for many of our personal injury clients, financial stress and anxiety about the future compound the effects of their injury.
We handle complex cases that often require technical understanding and expert testimony, such as:
- Medical malpractice, including surgical errors, misdiagnosis and untreated infection
- Birth injury, including infant brain damage and brachial plexus injuries
- Wrongful death
- Car accidents
- Slips and falls
- Catastrophic injuries, including TBI and spinal cord injuries
- Injuries to children
- Product liability, including medical products and pharmaceuticals
Our success is based on our courtroom experience, our ability to offer you intelligent, informed and compassionate counsel, and the pride we take in what we do. We win when you do.
When you are injured, contacting a lawyer isn't the first thing on your mind. Your immediate concern is getting the best medical treatment possible. However, over time you will be faced with tough questions regarding your future employment, your family's financial welfare, and the possibility of radical changes in your lifestyle.
You are not alone. We've worked with many people in situations comparable to yours. If you've been injured and you live in Ontario, we can provide you with the genuine, committed, expert advocacy you deserve.
Advocacy Inside and Outside of the Courtroom
Most personal injury claims are settled out of court. However, it is to your advantage to hire a legal team with strong courtroom skills. As a litigation firm, we are effective and experienced courtroom lawyers. We will pursue a trial when appropriate, or negotiate a resolution on your behalf. Either way, we advocate vigorously for you.
Time is of the Essence
There are strict time limits on when you can commence a personal injury claim. Whether your injury was recent or not, we recommend you consult a lawyer as soon as possible.
Taking the Appropriate Legal Steps
In all personal injury matters you will have options available. For example, in injury cases arising from a car accident, our work may involve getting benefits from an insurer, or filing a lawsuit against the person at fault. We will advise you on your options and work with you to choose the best approach.
