I was injured in a carjacking September 11, 2021. I was renting a car, left it idling to grab order food quickly and within a minute a thief jumped in the car. When I was holding on to the door to try and open it , the car thief sped off. I was dragged/thrown in the process (it happened really fast so I can’t really remember). I was told by the rental company that I wouldn’t be able to file a claim and that I was on my own. I had a torn pcl and a sprained MCL and couldn’t walk on my own for a while. I also had pain in my shoulder and my back and constant migraines. 3 weeks after the incident, I was referred to this law firm and spoke to M. Aftab Alam. He took on my case and reassured me that he’d be able to help me. He told me it would be difficult because they didn’t catch the guy so we couldn’t sue the perps insurance etc. But he told me he’d do his best and help. The incident ended up taking a toll on my mental health and finances and through it all, Yamini (his assistant I believe) and Aftab answered all of my questions in a timely manner. At the beginning of March , I made the decision to settle. I was in debt , and I was debt free before the car jacking and I just wanted to get my life on track again. M. Aftab Alam understood and negotiated with the insurance company. The reason why I was so adamant about settling was because I was under the assumption we were only suing for medical and due to the insurance making it hard to get the help I needed approved , I just wanted to heal on my own. Anyways , Mr. Alam was able to get all outstanding medical covered and I was content and happy to move forward from this. Fast forward to yesterday , March 29th. I had my final meeting with Mr. Alam. After showing me a breakdown of all the fees and where they were being allocated to , he told me that I would be receiving the remaining balance. I was shocked , and I actually broke down in tears. I literally thought I wouldn’t get anything and he truly fought for me to get something. Overall as stressful as this ordeal has been , this firm truly helped me and I’m very happy. I 100% recommend this firm to anyone who’s looking for a injury lawyer.

I am extremely thankful for Alam Law Firms handling and accepting of my case. Where I would be without them is difficult and scary to imagine. This law firm is excellent, generations of experience in the field allows for trust to be readily fostered between yourself and your team. The team's level of professionalism allows for people inexperienced with the legal world to integrate neatly. I've felt cared for through out the term of my personal injury claim which is an otherwise difficult time to navigate.

Alam Law. The best law firm and lawyers you will find, GUARANTEED ????. Unbelievable service and hospitality towards clients. How do I know you ask ? Took me from rock bottom to sky high ????.
Hey My name is Wahid and I am from kitcher , Ontario. I met with a serious car accident few years back. I hired Alam Law to handle my injury case. Muhammad Alam and Aftab Alam both worked very hard for my case. My lawyers and their team kept me updated and guided me throughout my case. My insurance was giving my very hard time and my Income Replacement was stopped after 6 months of the accident. Aftab Alam planned for my case and appealed the Denail. After very long battle, insurance company lost and they paid me all my income loss for the past plus interest on over due amount. In addition, Aftab Alam, developed the strategy to apply for my catastrophic injury case as I was going through serious physical limitations, chronic pain and depression issues and finally insurer agreed that their decision for Denail was wrong and finally I got the best Settlemnt that didn’t expect. Alam Law also sued the at fault driver and got the best settlements for Tort claim. My lawyers and their entire team has been very dedicated to my case. They are expert, experienced, highly knowledgeable and compassionate. I will recommend everyone to only contact Alam Law Firm for your Injury and Disability case as they are the best law firm in canada. Thank you once again my lawyers and your team Regards Wahid

My name is Irfath I was involved in a pedestrian accident few years back I was injured, but unfortunately, the other driver was not excepting his fault. In fact, he, his insurance company, and his lawyer was claiming that his vehicle did not hit me. Of course, he was lying as there was evidence, that was prove later, when my lawyer, for this case insurance company didn’t realize that they are wrong and they have paid my compensation that myself and my family deserve. I am happy that I was able to choose Alam law. I think you, Mr. Alam, Aftab, Alam and his team for all his best efforts and work they have taken care of my file. They have always given respect that a client deserve and provide compassionate. If you or anybody involved in a car accident, I will highly recommend that this is the team that you must trust and hire them.

Documenting And Assessing The Hazard

Slip-and-fall claims must be filed quickly, both to preserve the evidence and to meet legal deadlines. If you have fallen on city property, you may have only a matter of days to file. Documenting the condition of the area in which you fell and contacting our law firm right away will help your chances for a successful legal claim.
Cellphone pictures, videos, and the names and numbers of any witnesses are all valuable pieces of potential evidence. Our FAQ page on slip-and-fall cases has more information.
A trip-and-fall accident can be the result of any number of hazards. Property conditions that can lead to a serious injury include:
  • Unstable store displays
  • Store spills, including wet floors from cleaning, fallen produce or liquids
  • Broken or unstable staircases
  • Uneven flooring
  • Poor lighting in staircases and hallways
  • Icy sidewalks
If you are recovering from a slip-and-fall injury, our lawyers can help. We will assess what happened, how you were injured and whether you may be able to advance a legal claim for personal injury. We will be your advocates throughout legal proceedings.

What can I get compensation for?

Being hurt in a slip and fall can lead to financial difficulties for the injured person, but a slip and fall accident lawyer can help. Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may have medical expenses that are not covered by OHIP or your health insurance. This may include treatment such as physical therapy or mobility devices such as a walker or wheelchair.In the case of a permanent injury, you may need to make modifications to your home to make it more accessible, which can also be very costly.
But even a less severe injury can prove expensive if you require homecare, or you need to hire someone to help with the household chores for a few weeks while you recover. Depending on the injury and the nature of your work, you may also need to take some time off and end up losing wages.
When you work with a slip and fall lawyer in Toronto, they can help you get compensation for all of your out-of-pocket expenses as well as lost wages. Additionally, you may qualify to get compensation for pain and suffering as well as punitive damages.

Slip-And-Fall Claims - FAQs

Occupier’s liability refers to the body of law which holds a landowner and/or possessor of property liable for injuries to others sustained on their property, like a slip-and-fall incident.
First, immediately make provision for your safety and health. If you are injured, make sure that you seek medical attention. If you are able, try to obtain the following information and immediately consult a personal injury lawyer:
  1. The name and address and of the owner of the property
  2. The name and address of all witnesses to the accident or who may have seen you lying on the ground
  3. The name and address of all persons to whom you have reported the incident
  4. Some pictures of the area or objects that caused your fall
Yes. The condition of the premises at the time of the injury will be a pivotal issue in resolving any claim and photos can document that condition. Also, take photos of all physical injuries you have sustained (such as bruises, scrapes, lacerations, etc.).
This will often depend on whether the person on the property was a business invitee, a social guest or a trespasser. A business invitee is on the property by invitation and usually for mutual economic benefit. A social guest is on the premises by invitation and not for any economic benefit. A trespasser is on the premises without permission. Generally, property owner’s duty of care is the highest with a business invitee while the lowest duty of care is to a trespasser.
f the following can be proved, you may be able to file a successful lawsuit:
  1. The property owner was “negligent”, which means that the property owner breached the legal duty owed to the injured individual;
  2. There is causation, meaning that the property owner’s specific acts of negligence caused the injuries; and
  3. As a result of the property owner’s negligence you suffered losses.

The injured party must prove that the defendant was negligent toward them. It must be shown that the landowner/occupant possessed the premises at the time of the accident and that they had control of the premises, and control of the condition thereof.

Generally, a plaintiff will be able to recover all economic damages (income loss and medical and other expenses etc), incurred resulting from the occurrence. Many times noneconomic damages are also awarded (i.e., pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, inconvenience, etc.).

Yes. If you have been injured in a premises accident, including a slip-and-fall accident, it is advisable to immediately consult a personal injury lawyer. The insurance company for the property owner is not your ally regardless of how cooperative or friendly it may seem. That insurance company has lawyers and other resources to try to defeat any claim you assert. In order to be on equal footing, you need to have an injury lawyer on your side. Early consultation with a personal injury lawyer can also help your case in that your lawyer may be able to help investigate and document your case. Sometimes a delay results in witnesses and evidence disappearing or becoming more difficult to obtain. The opposing insurance company will be aggressively investigating your case and you need someone doing the same for you. Please contact our firm to schedule your free initial consultation.
