When a catastrophic injury happens, your life is forever changed. Affected Ontario residents must now face even more uncertainty. With recent budget cuts of 50% to necessary medical, rehabilitation and attendant care benefits by the provincial government , your right to equitable compensation will be significantly compromised. Simply put; without proper representation, your benefits are at risk.   While the public service plans to change the definition of catastrophic injury to one that favours insurance companies over families , Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers continues to deliver the dedicated support that works to protect what matters most.   For those people dealing with the (approximate) 1% of accidents resulting in catastrophic injury, trauma of this more permanent nature makes returning to normal activities and employment a challenge, or in many cases, impossible for a prolonged amount of time. When you or a loved one has experienced damage to the brain or spinal cord, serious bone fractures, and the severe emotional distress that comes with it, practical and compassionate guidance is needed more than ever.   When you align with Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers, you gain the advantage of crucial access to medical and rehabilitative care, experienced counsel and effective advocacy that fights for fair compensation for you and your loved ones.  


A Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers catastrophic injury lawyer understands that when you or someone you care about has sustained severe physical and emotional harm, a healthy recovery and the resources to get there mean everything.   At Neinstein, our experienced team has assisted Ontarians who have endured a major trauma or tragic accident to secure the compensation they need to protect themselves, their families, and to ultimately move forward in their recovery.   Whatever the circumstances, whether car accident or slip and fall accident, you and your family need qualified assistance without the financial burden. Our firm understands that upfront and hourly legal costs can be prohibitive at a time when you may be unable to work, and future income may be compromised.   At Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers, you do not pay legal fees until your case is successfully resolved. As part of a contingency-based fee agreement, discussed at the time of retainer, payment will consist of a percentage of monies recovered; and, as always, should your case not result in financial gain, you do not owe us a cent.   When you partner with Neinstein, our catastrophic injury lawyers give you access to the medical and rehabilitation treatment necessary to start your journey towards recovery. Our goal is to relieve some of the stress you are feeling by taking on related co-ordination tasks and assigning to you a treatment team including social worker and/or case manager who assist with the navigation of a complex process, step by step.  

My family’s world changed on January 24, 2002 when my 15 year old daughter suffered a catastrophic brain injury in a single vehicle accident in Burlington. A referral from a family friend/lawyer connected us with Duncan Embury.


Our first meeting was at McMaster Hospital Intensive Care Unit where Duncan clearly explained Ontario’s insurance rules, the torte process and how we were facing life-long medical expenses vs. limited funding. This is where the journey began to give my daughter the best options for attendant care, therapies and a good quality of life. I’m not going to lie, it was a long road but thanks to Duncan’s support, expertise, creative solutions and sense of humor, my family felt that we were on the right path.


Duncan always made me feel that I was part of the solution and welcomed my tough questions and encouraged my suggestions. We definitely worked as a team. He connected us with the best experts that supported our case, the family and my daughter. I am pleased to report that my family has come out the other side of this tragedy. We couldn’t be more grateful.

The insurance claims process is often time-consuming and complex. Insurance companies will assess every minute detail of the events leading up to the accident to ascertain fault. As a victim, you must submit to medical examinations and intense scrutiny of your injuries. These will be accompanied by meetings with legal counsel for the insurance company. These are known as Examinations for Discovery, or ‘depositions.’
