Sandra Zisckind on Catastrophic Injuries
People often ask us what is a “catastrophic injury” for the purposes of a motor vehicle accident? Catastrophic is a legal definition under the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule. Generally, if you are catastrophic you are a quadriplegic, paraplegic or severely brain injured. But there is one other category that people are not usually aware of, that…

Good and Bad In All Systems
Sun Media Clients often tell me, “Oh if I got injured in the U.S., my recovery would be better.” That is not the case. As someone who studied in U.S. and got her law degree there, I can tell you that while our U.S. counterparts have some good points to their regime, they also have…

Road Rage
Sandra Zisckind After the video with motorcyclists and Range Rover (extremely disturbing) I read that road rage is on the rise. I too have once or twice (maybe more) aggressively honked someone.

Sudbury – A Big Town With A Small Town Feel

Multitasking Marathon

Bullying
Sandra Zisckind Bullying is a subject near and dear to my heart. I do take some extreme bullying cases and sue school boards for their failure to intervene.

First Annual Safety Day
My incredible Aunt Terry who follows my column religiously pointed out an obvious flaw in my last column. I ranted and raved about our upcoming Safety Day yet negligently forgot the date. More than a minor mistake but that’s okay, I’ll make it up today. We are hosting our first annual safety day SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 7,…

Everyday Heroes
We often overlook our everyday heroes in our community that help us thanklessly. So as the weather is getting colder we are painfully reminded that fall is around the corner. With that we have to do our back to school shopping. Having a son starting JK I have bought I have just finished mine. So…
