Our personal injury lawyers in Scarborough have a successful track record managing a wide variety of cases, including those involving:
Also known as Statutory Accident Benefits (SABs), accident benefits are a compulsory part of all automobile insurance policies in Scarborough and Ontario. These benefits are designed to help recover lost earnings or medical expenses and can be paid out even if you were partially responsible for the accident. However, how the actual payout is determined is at the insurer’s discretion. This means you may not receive the full amount you are entitled to. Our accident benefits lawyers in Scarborough are here for you and will make sure you have the best possible chances of securing full access to benefits.
Bicycle & Pedestrian Accidents
Both cyclists and pedestrians share the road with motor vehicle drivers and therefore should be respected while crossing or cycling. If a motorist ignores common cycling signals or demonstrates improper driving such as driving on bike lanes or refusing to stop for a pedestrian, they may be liable if there is an accident. If you have been injured following an accident, our bicycle and pedestrian accident lawyers in Scarborough are here to help.
No matter how minor, a brain injury or concussion can cause life-changing effects, including a reduction in a person’s mental, cognitive and physical capabilities. These injuries might also prevent from working as well as enjoying their hobbies and socializing. Brain injuries tend to require extensive treatment and long-term rehabilitation, including home care. Our brain injury lawyers in Scarborough are here to support you by carrying out a thorough investigation into your case to find and hold the party responsible for your injury accountable so that you can get compensation needed for a better future.
A catastrophic injury is a severe injury caused by a significant event, like a terrible car accident. These events can have devastating consequences on a person’s livelihood, sometimes causing permanent, long-term damage such as paralysis. If you believe you have been a victim of a catastrophic accident, our personal injury lawyers in Scarborough are ready to advocate for your right to compensation.
Children’s Injury Claims
No child ever deserves to be wounded or injured by another person’s negligence. While children do not directly make personal injury claims themselves, their parent or legal guardian is able to do so on their behalf. Personal injury claims for children are complex cases but may offer a significant benefit to your child through financial support, such as recovering any potential lost earnings if their injuries are long-term. Our child injury lawyers in Scarborough are here to support you through this process and make sure your child’s case gets the attention it deserves.
Chronic pain is a form of suffering that is persistent in nature and may come on frequently in episodes or be constant. It can last months or years and be brought on by an injury or condition, even if the injury has technically been treated. If you are suffering chronic pain from an injury or wound, our chronic pain lawyers in Scarborough can help take your claim to your insurance company and fight to give you the compensation you need.
Defective Product & Product Liability
Defective products, like toxic skincare products or faulty electrical goods, can put you and your family at risk of significant harm.

Dog bites are rare across Scarborough, but sadly they do happen. A dog attack or bite can be a traumatic event that causes severe wounds as well as mental distress. At Affinity Law, our dog bite lawyers in Scarborough will investigate the incident for you and make sure the dog’s owner is held fully accountable for their negligence.
Hit and Run Accidents
A hit and run accident can you leave not only injured but also with large bills to pay. However, you should not have to face these expenses alone if you are insured. Our hit and run accident lawyers in Scarborough are able to take on insurance companies and make sure you get the best chances of securing compensation.
Motor Vehicle & Car Accidents
Being connected to Toronto and North York via one of North America’s busiest highways (Highway 401), Scarborough is no stranger to motor vehicle accidents. These accidents are often caused by improper driving during potentially hazardous conditions such as high traffic or winter weather. While on the road, drivers have the responsibility to be vigilant of hazards. This responsibility must also be followed when operating an offroad vehicle, otherwise it can result in incidents like snowmobile accidents. If you have been a victim of an accident on or off the road, our motor vehicle and car accident lawyers in Scarborough are here to help you.
Psychological & PTSD Claims
Psychological injuries can be highly traumatic experiences that may have long-lasting effects on a person’s mental capacity, mood, and cognitive ability. They may occur after an accident or happen over time. At Affinity Law, we understand the long-term impacts a psychological injury or PTSD can have on your everyday life. Our psychological injury lawyers in Scarborough are here to support you through this difficult period and advocate for your right to financial compensation.
Slip/Trip & Fall Accidents
Although a slip and fall might be brushed off as an embarrassing incident, it can also cause significant wounds such as broken bones or tendon damage, as well as causing chronic pain or nerve damage. These medical conditions can often require long-term physical therapy and sometimes surgery to treat, putting many victims out of work while they recover. A slip and fall can occur anywhere, whether in public places like shopping malls or in a private home. They are frequently caused by negligent safety standards like having no hazard signage on the property or not preparing for adverse weather conditions. If you have been a victim of a slip and fall accident, you might be able to seek compensation for your suffering. Our slip and fall lawyers in Scarborough are able to help make a successful claim on your behalf and give you the sound legal counsel you deserve.
Injuries such as tears and wounds to the tendons and ligaments are common types of soft tissue injuries. Typically caused by impacting incidents such as assault, car crashes and falls, soft tissue injuries can require extensive treatment, physical therapy and rehabilitation. If you have suffered soft tissue injury from an accident, you might be able to make a claim. Affinity Law’s soft tissue injury lawyers in Scarborough can help investigate your situation and work to give you the best opportunity for compensation.
Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries are serious injuries that can cause a wide range of negative effects on a person’s physical, emotional and mental health. Being a central part of the nervous system and mobility, spinal cord injuries can cause paralysis as well as chronic pain. These injuries can also be long-lasting or permanent, making returning to your normal life before your accident very difficult. Fortunately, you may be able to claim compensation for your injury, but you should be aware that many insurance companies will attempt to deny your claim or offer you much less than you are entitled to. Our spinal cord injury lawyers in Scarborough are here to fight against them and ensure you have the legal representation you deserve.
Losing a family member, partner or a close friend in an accident can be a devastating experience, particularly if the death could have been avoided. Our wrongful death lawyers in Scarborough recognize the stress and difficulty of making a wrongful death claim, especially as you are trying to mourn your loss and care for your own loved ones. We ensure your needs are fully tended to and will conduct a thorough investigation so that we can help you make a claim.
Long-Term & Short-Term Disability Claims
For some accidents, recovery may take longer than expected and victims may be disabled on a short-term or long-term basis. Naturally, facing a disability can make it difficult to live out your ordinary life, especially if you are unable to work. However, you should never have to face your disability alone with no help. Whether you are looking to start a new claim or have already been denied benefits, our long-term and short-term disability claims lawyers in Scarborough are here to support you.
