Have you been injured
Despite strict safety standards, people are frequently injured on or near construction sites. If you have been injured in a construction accident, seek the advice of an experienced personal injury lawyer. Our lawyers may be able to help you receive accident benefits from your own insurance company. In some cases, we will recommend filing a personal injury lawsuit, or tort claim, to recover financial compensation from those responsible for causing you harm.

Yes. The Family Law Act provides for recovery, to some extent, for the loss of guidance, care and companionship as well as certain out of pocket expenses. Additionally, the accident benefits insurer (most often your own insurance company) pays certain expenses to family members.
An Income Replacement Benefit is not payable for the first week of missed work. After the first week, you must suffer a substantial inability to perform the essential tasks of your employment. The test changes after two years. After 104 weeks (two years), the question is whether you suffer a complete inability to engage in any employment, for which you are reasonably suited by education, training, or experience.
The first question that needs to be determined in such circumstances is whether you are actually ‘in the course of your employment’. If you were travelling between home and work, there is a good chance you are not in the course of your employment, although there are exceptions to this. If you were travelling between work sites, on the other hand, you may very well be considered to be in the course of your employment.
