Our personal injury team has been working with clients for over 40 years, finding solutions for the significant economic and lifestyle disruptions that accidents bring. Whether the injuries arise from motor vehicle collisions, medical malpractice, slip and falls, or someone else’s negligence, we can help with professionalism, skill and compassion.
Local Service. National Strength.
Miller Thomson’s personal injury lawyers belong to a national firm, deeply rooted in communities across Canada. We deliver personalized service at a local level, with the strength and resources of our national network, at the same rates our competitors charge in small boutique firms.
Our senior lawyers have been designated as “Queen’s Counsel,” and consistently appear on Canada’s peer-reviewed “Best Lawyers” list.
Many of our clients choose Miller Thomson’s personal injury team, after being referred by other firms that are not equipped to handle these uniquely challenging cases.
Every personal injury case is unique, and it is critically important our clients feel comfortable enough to talk with their lawyers about personal matters including health, finances, and lifestyle choices. With seven female and six male lawyers in our group, who speak languages ranging from English to Spanish, Korean, Ukrainian, and Shona, diversity is our strength.
All members of our personal injury team, from lawyers to paralegals, assistants, and support staff, have taken Miller Thomson’s Service Commitment Pledge. You can expect clear, effective, and timely communication from trustworthy legal advisors, with transparency and integrity in all that we do.
