In April 2014 I was involved in a traffic accident on the Gardiner Expressway in Toronto. I was hit from behind while at a dead stop by another driver travelling at roughly 90 Kms/hour. As a result of the accident I was left with head, neck, shoulder and back injuries. A good friend recommended that I speak with Thomson Rogers and specifically with Stephen Birman one of the Partners of the firm. Stephen took the time to meet with me to discuss the details of my accident and together with a diary that I kept from the day of the accident, he took copious notes of the event and laid out the approach that he would take to represent me. Due to the nature of my injuries, I regularly met with doctors and specialists to address my medical condition over a period of more than 2 years and I met with Stephen on a regular basis to discuss my medical condition and to obtain updates on the status of the work being done by the Firm to as part of the preparation of the Statement of Claim that was being prepared on my behalf. The attention to detail, the communication and the approach used by Stephen was first class and exceeded my expectations. Over a period of more than 2 years, Stephen represented me and my Statement of Claim eventually resulted in mediation taking place in late 2016. Stephen fully briefed me before the mediation and he outlined the process and what I should expect to take place on the day of the mediation. The result, an acceptable settlement was reached in late 2016. If you are looking for a first class firm to represent you in the event you are in an accident, I recommend that you contact Thomson Rogers and Stephen Birman. Many thanks to the firm for representing me during this difficult time in my life.
