Having Thomson Rogers represent me made me feel secure and safe, knowing that they would do everything they could to ensure my case was successful. I felt that I had sufficient support and protection throughout the years during my lawsuit. David MacDonald, Ian Furlong and Barbara O'Gorman made sure that my recovery was smooth and they did everything they could to make sure I would have a bright future. I have to thank Mr. MadDonald, Mr. Furlong and Ms. O'Gorman for representing me and helping restore my life to what it was originally, as well as ensuring that I would have support in the years to come.
Dear Mr. MacDonald,
We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude and thank you for your remarkable work and tremendous support during the period you were representing us! We truly appreciate all your efforts. We would also like to extend our gratitude to your Law Clerk, Ms. Barbara O’Gorman for her kind and compassionate support during the course of our case. The expertise and professionalism that you and your colleagues demonstrated were absolutely impressive.
Your support helped our son to take the right steps and get the right treatments for recovery, and safeguard his future. For that, we will be indebted to you forever.
In the mean time, we wish you and your family much success, and a very happy, healthy and prosperous year ahead! May God bless you and your family always.
Dear Mr. MacDonald,
We would like to thank you sincerely for all your efforts in helping my husband and family in the most time of need. From the first moment we met you, we felt confident and trusted you.
We thank you for fighting for our rights and giving us the strength to live day by day. Your compassion meant the world to us because knowing you were representing us, gave us a piece of mind so that I could focus on my husband's recovery. You provided my husband with the best rehabilitation team who gave him hope in having a future.
We also gratefully thank your senior law clerk, Barbara O'Gorman for truly being an amazing person. She gave me the strength to pull through. I can genuinely say that Barbara has always treated me as a friend rather than just a client. It was a relief to know that her assistance was available to me and my family whenever in need.
We would truly recommend you to anyone who has been involved in a car accident and requires excellent representation.
We are forever grateful.
Today is the seventh anniversary of my accident. I reflect often on a most fortunate recovery, particularly as this time of year must weigh heavily on the driver who caused the event & lost her mother. I am sure my survival was due to the quick action of an off duty policeman & the help he was able to summons. I have no recollection of the jaws of life only a face at my window giving encouragement, the helicopter from highway 89 to Sunnybrook is vague as was the signing of a consent to operate & the ten days hooked up to a lung machine & my many shattered bones. My arrival at the wonderful St. Johns, I suspect, was due in part to the very nice case worker who got me there & also retrieved my jewelry. I would like to have properly thanked them both.
I was well looked after - a nice roommate, excellent care as well as continual support from fellow Anglicans plus many other good friends who visited, setting up bridge games & a fun 75th birthday party. Fortunately, this enabled me to truly accept the things I could not change & get on with the rigor of exercises, mental & physical this still took three months mostly in a wheel chair. My kids laughed that “only their mother would take that long to drive from The Blue Mts. to Toronto”. I had three more months of sleeping in my dining room & being monitored by care givers daily, with lots of physiotherapy. Like most happenings in my life I felt totally responsible for my well being & accepted the challenge, our fine health care system can do just so much.
I am truly grateful for these past seven years particularly as I was able to get back to driving, which is one of my main volunteer functions to-day.
This past May I broke my hip (my 12th fracture) while convening a coffee hour at church, once again I was lucky with immediate surgery, home within the week & managed to enjoy my already planned Holland American trip to The Yukon & Alaska in August.
So thank you for all your efforts on my behalf have not forgotten Barbara & Michael & do appreciate the opportunity you provided to express my gratitude.
Sincere best wishes for 2012 & future success.
I was seriously injured in a pedestrian motor vehicle accident in 2008. I was hospitalized for approximately two months. I had crushed leg, bowel and pelvic and I was in very much pain with bandage changes. Upon my return home I had nursing care every day.
During my trip to Hamilton General I was provided with the name of Thomson Rogers which I contacted. Michael Bennett returned my call and met me at my home. He took my case and what an amazing lawyer he is. Barbara O’Gorman at Thomson Rogers took care of most of my case, and she was a life saver.
I was considered non-catastrophic when Thomson Rogers took over my case. At the end of 2 years, after going to be assessed by the medical experts that Thomson Rogers organized, with my lawyer’s help, I was eventually declared catastrophic.
Barbara O’Gorman arranged for an amazing rehabilitation team to work with me and to ensure that I was getting the best physiotherapy, occupational, case management, medical, psychological, rehabilitation support worker, and attendant care.
Michael Bennett was able to get me an excellent settlement in less than 3 years. Now I own my own home, and, I have structured settlement cheques coming in every month.
I still struggle with pain and bowl problems but I do feel without Thomson Rogers, I would not be where I am today.
They were a ‘godsend’. Thank you, Thomson Rogers and especially Michael Bennett and Barbara O’Gorman.
