Assisting Victims and Their Families
Taylor McCaffrey LLP lawyers that choose to focus their practice on assisting the victims and families of those that have been injured or harmed have the skills, contacts and expertise to assist in their dealings with medical practitioners, adjusters and the courts.
Our highly skilled and experienced team of litigators have successfully represented clients in all level of the courts including the Supreme Court of Canada.
Some of the personal injury and medical malpractice areas in which we provide services are outlined below.
The Occupier’s Liability Act imposes the duty on an owner or occupier of a property to take such care as to make the property reasonably safe. Whether or not an owner or an occupier has met that duty will depend on the circumstances of the case. The firm’s Personal Injury Department has the expertise and experience to assess the owner’s or the occupier’s compliance with the requirements of the Act and can assist in developing a reasonable plan of inspection and monitoring to reduce the risk of unnecessary litigation. Conversely, our Personal Injury Department in making their assessment as to whether the owner’s or the occupier’s duty has been met is able to assist the injured in determining the chance of success in any litigation arising out of an accident and can provide a full assessment of damages that the injured may expect to recover.
Motor Vehicle, Aircraft, Boating Accidents
While the Personal Injury Department continues to provide its services to those injured in motor vehicle accidents, it should be noted that since March 1, 1994, it is no longer possible to commence an action in the Province of Manitoba for personal injuries arising out of a motor vehicle accident. Our personal injury practitioners remain available to assist the injured through the legal minefield of the no-fault system.
We have been involved in successfully representing the victims of serious accidents involving all means of transportation from snowmobiles to off-road vehicles and in cases involving boating accidents and airplane crashes.
Although long regarded as one of the most difficult areas in a personal injury lawyer’s practice, Taylor McCaffrey LLP has enjoyed great success in litigating medical malpractice actions. This success is a result of our efforts to see that only those cases that are capable of being successfully litigated are brought before the courts. In order to accomplish this, every effort is made to ensure that the cases are properly assessed and the proper experts retained prior to commencing any action. Once an action is commenced, our team will strive to represent you and your interests to ensure full and fair compensation.
