Many people within the Greater Toronto Area use public buses and trains to get into downtown Toronto or simply around the GTA. The use of public transportation may be convenient for some, but unfortunately it is not immune to motor vehicle accidents. If you or someone you love was injured in a bus accident or while riding the bus, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim.
The law firm of Stevenson Whelton LLP represent individuals and their families who have suffered serious personal injury in mass transit accidents. We will answer your questions about the legal process and advise you on your options for making a claim against responsible parties.
"I was always kept well informed and Jill explained everything to me so that I was sure to understand the proceedings and exactly what was happening. Any questions I had were always answered promptly and sometimes had to be repeated to me more than once. I appreciated everyone's patience with me." — P.A., Oakville, Ontario
Seeking Compensation for All Your Needs
Public bus injuries range from soft-tissue injuries to serious head injuries, back injuries and other severe injuries. The extent to which these injuries will affect your life may also not be fully known at the time of the accident. Instead, chronic pain or long-term disability may manifest long after the initial injuries have healed.
Our bus accident lawyers work diligently to obtain compensation for all your short- and long-term needs. Where appropriate, we will engage medical specialists, rehabilitative consultants and vocational experts to accurately diagnose the impact of your injury. We will then strive to obtain maximum compensation to which you are entitled.
