Were you, or someone you know, injured in the OC Transpo/Via Rail crash in Barrhaven (Ottawa) on September 18, 2013? Have you missed time from work? Are you suffering psychological injuries from the trauma? If so, you may have the right to make a claim for compensation for pain and suffering (physical and psychological), loss of income and medical expenses.
At Burn Tucker Lachaîne in Ottawa, our lawyers are representing some of the victims and families of this terrible tragedy. As one of the largest personal injury firms in eastern Ontario, we have the resources, knowledge and experience to help you through the legal process.
You may be wondering whether you have the right to sue. You may be struggling with whether you want to sue, whether it is the right thing to do. We encourage you to meet with one of our lawyers to discuss your rights and have your questions answered. Our consultations are free and there is no obligation to proceed with a claim unless you choose to do so.
Even those who did not suffer direct physical injury may have the right to compensation. We know from eyewitness accounts that the bus/train crash and its aftermath were traumatic. You may have been left with psychological damage as a result of this tragedy and you may be having difficulty working or doing the things you normally did before the crash.
At Burn Tucker Lachaîne, we take a client-centered approach to legal practice. We believe this is one of our greatest strengths. We will work with you and for you in pursuing your claim for compensation.
In most cases, you have two years to start a claim. However, there are exceptions. You should speak with a lawyer as soon as possible so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not to proceed with a claim.
