Traffic Fatalities

Fatalities are becoming more and more prevalent. My heart goes out to the family who lost their son this week. I also have a 4 year old son. There is nothing worse. The Sun did a great job a couple weeks ago about the increase in fatalities in the City. I spoke last week about distracted driving and how that ...

Distracted Driving – The Sequel

My associate just got this hand out from the Toronto Police that looks like a ticket but really it is a caution on distracted driving. Now I know I talk about this a lot but there are certain realities to this new high tech age we are living in. The hand out states that the...

Sports Concussions

I have decided, I am going to be the only one who doesn’t talk about the mayor this week. It is not a moral stance but I think the media has done a great job covering it and hey what more is there to say? I want to talk about sports.  Watching the NFL with my husband and watching...

Personal Injury with a Heart

Personal Injury with a Heart - I am so happy to congratulate my brother Isaac Zickind on his “Lawyers Can’t Jump” event. Basically a bunch of out of shape lawyers, (myself included) got together to play basketball and raise money for Sick Kids hospital. Isaac and two other lawyers from two other firms raised over $20,000.00 for the Leukemia ward of...

Halloween Safety

It’s Halloween this week. My son will be going as Lightning McQueen for the third year in a row (Disney owes me shares in their company). So we should talk about Halloween safety...

Now I am going to admit to a practice I think is probably wrong but it is one I employ for a good reason: I do not trick or treat around my house. I take my son to my brother’s house because they live on a small side street where there is little to no traffic and the houses are closer together. I feel it is safer in that area.

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 is 55% impairment.

Good and Bad In All Systems

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 a lot of bad...

Sudbury - A Big Town With A Small Town Feel

Friday, 27 September 2013

I just returned from our Sudbury office. I am always happy to go there because while it is a big town you get that small town feel. People are extremely welcoming and friendly. Which is great but can often create a problem from a personal injury perspective...

Drunk Driving

No one is more excited than my husband that the Leafs are in the playoffs, well maybe all of the GTA and surrounding areas. I hear him make plans to attend playoff parties and celebrate are good fortune with his friends. Inevitably at these parties there is some alcohol. In our house there is a rule, if you intend to consume alcohol you take a cab, simple.
