Our Expertise

Types of accidents we can help with

We represent injured individuals for the following types of claims:

Motor vehicle accidents

New Brunswick has mandatory automobile insurance, that includes some basic coverage under four policy sections (A, B, C, & D). If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, your car accident lawyer can help you recover different types of compensation and benefits under these policies of insurance.

Slip and falls

Slip and fall claims involve accidents resulting from slipping on ice, slipping on water, tripping over a hazard, or having a hazard strike you. These accidents may occur in a store, on a walkway, at someone’s home, or in other areas.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice claims occur when a doctor, or other medical professionals, makes a mistake that results in injury or loss. These claims often require securing evidence and expert opinions early and it is important to consult a lawyer as soon as possible.

Fatal accidents

Tragically, some accidents can result in death at the time of the accident or after. In New Brunswick, special statutory claims can be brought for a wrongful death or fatal accidents.

Motorcycle accidents

New Brunswick has mandatory automobile insurance, that includes some basic coverage under four policy sections (A, B, C, & D). If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you are entitled to different types of compensation and benefits under these policies of insurance.


If you have been assaulted, you may have a claim for compensation for your injuries. An assault may include hitting, kicking, punching, or pushing. An assault can also be of a sexual nature, such as rape. Even if criminal charges are not pursued, or the perpetrator is not convicted, a civil claim can still be successful.  

Pedestrian and Cyclist Accidents

If you are involved in a collision with a motor vehicle while walking or on a bicycle, you are entitled to coverage for your injuries under the motor vehicle’s insurance policy, regardless of whether you have insurance. If someone else is at fault for the accident, you may be entitled to compensation for treatment and medication expenses, past and future loss of income, general damages for pain and suffering, loss of valuable services, future cost of care, and more.

Privacy Violations

Courts have recently recognized that violations of privacy can give rise to a claim. You may have a claim where your privacy is invaded when your information is improperly accessed, collected, or shared.
