You can never take away a man’s sea legs, and this is especially true with Danny M. Danny grew up as an avid sailor, but when he was 43 years old, a terrible car accident rendered him a paraplegic. Danny never gave up on his dream to return to sailing and was determined to compete again. The accident left Danny a paraplegic, and he spent over a year in Toronto hospitals rehabilitating. When he was able to leave the hospital, Danny started having trouble with his insurance company. They had determined he was fit enough to work for minimum wage and decided that he was not entitled to the settlement he deserved. Danny contacted a member firm of the Personal Injury Alliance, seeking our support.Learn More

As a single mother of three, Tammy K. has always been a determined and hardworking individual, but one early morning in the fall of 2008, her strength would be tested considerably. Tammy was safely driving to work when a truck suddenly pulled out of a parking lot without warning. The result was a devastating car accident as Tammy’s car was T-boned, leaving her life in question.
Thankfully, Tammy was rushed to the hospital where doctors worked to save her life. After weeks of being in a coma, it was unclear if she would survive a catastrophic brain injury, but her determination and strength enabled her to start down a path of rehabilitation. It was at this point when Tammy’s children hired a lawyer to help her with her case. But, after a year of little progress, it became clear that she needed more experienced representation.Learn More
