Car Accidents

Your interests come first. Let Chahal Law ease the stress of your accident and help you navigate the aftermath. We'll get you access to the medical care you need, and ensure you receive your full motor vehicle accident compensation quickly.

Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents are extremely complex, and the resulting injuries are often serious, including traumatic brain injuries and broken bones.

Chahal Law has dealt with hundreds of pedestrian accident claims. We have a track record of favourable settlements, even in cases where the pedestrian was not crossing the street at the point of a crosswalk, or was walking against the traffic signals.

If you were injured while walking, contact us to discuss your injuries and claim.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accident claims are often much more complex than car accidents. There are usually issues relating to the safe use and operation of the motorcycle, and the extent of liability of the offending vehicle. Additionally, the serious and complex nature of the injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents, including head injuries, requires the involvement of experienced legal counsel, to retain the appropriate medical experts to support a significant claim for damages. 

Chahal Law has successfully resolved dozens of motorcycle claims. If you require an experienced lawyer in this area, contact Chahal Law now.

Slip & Falls

If you are on someone else’s property and have been injured as a result of a dangerous condition or negligent conduct on the property by the land owner, occupier or business proprietor or a municipality, they may be liable for your injuries.

A slip and fall relates to an injury which occurs when someone falls as a result of a dangerous or hazardous condition on someone else’s property. These falls might have occurred as a result of ice, water, or snow, as well as changes in a stairwell, sidewalk or flooring, or as a result of poor lighting, a hidden hazard, such as a gap.

It is important to note that unlike some other injury claims, there are strict timelines for you to provide notice of your claim and commence your action, especially if your action is against a municipality.

If you have been hurt as a result of a slip and fall accident, please contact one of our Chahal Law immediately to ensure that your claim is evidenced and your rights are fully protected.

Wrongful Death

When a loved one dies as a result of someone else’s negligent conduct, the family members of that person may have the right to claim damages for their loss. These damages relate to the loss of guidance and support, loss of income, and loss of family contribution. 

It is important to note that wrongful death claims are often complex, and require expert actuarial evidence to show the extent of the financial loss resulting from death.

At Chahal Law, we are well experienced in Wrongful Death claims. If this is a matter you would like to discuss, please contact us at your convenience.
