• Automobile Accidents
If you are injured in an automobile accident, your life as you know it, and your future, change in a heartbeat. At Ryder Law Firm, we get it.
In motor vehicle accidents when there is another party at fault, there are two separate but parallel claims that must be advanced on your behalf. One is referred to as the tort claim in which you seek to recover damages for personal injury, pain and suffering and the largest portion of your past, present and future loss of income. The other is a claim for statutory accident benefits, usually treatments, medications and a small amount of loss of income from your own automobile insurer.
Both of these claims are necessary and if you fail to properly do one or the other, you will end up with less than the awards to which you would normally be entitled.
Even if you have caused an automobile accident and it is solely your fault, if you are hurt, you are still entitled to maintain a claim against your own insurance company for statutory accident benefits. This claim is regardless of who caused the accident. This claim can be substantial, especially if you are considered to be catastrophically injured.
Accident benefit claims are extremely complicated and require the assistance of a team of legal talent experienced with the statutory accident benefit process.
Let us put our experience and team to work for you from day one. Our team of legal and medical professionals will help you through this difficult time.
We will listen carefully to your concerns and needs.

If we do not recover for you, you do not pay us.
• Slip & Fall Injuries
If you are injured in a slip and fall accident and you believe that someone else is at fault, then there are a number of steps that you need to take quickly in order to protect your claim. It is important that you immediately notify in writing the party who you feel is at fault of your claim. You should take pictures of the accident site before any changes are made. You should also try to determine if there are any witnesses to the accident. You should keep the shoes or boots that you were wearing at the time of the accident.
We can help you with these and all the other necessary legal steps to protect your claim and to make certain that you receive everything to which you are entitled.
• Insurance & Fire Loss Claims
Insurance and fire loss claims are complicated contractual contests. You need someone on your side with experience in dealing with these types of claims and with the understanding of how the insurance industry works. We have the experience necessary after having acted for large insurance companies in the past. We know how they think (each company is different) and what their weaknesses are. Let us put our experience and knowledge to work for you.
• Disability Claims
Disability claims often become a contest of who has the best medical team and supportive reports. We have the ability to access the best medical talent in this province. We can bring these people to work for you and to achieve a successful result.
