A Proven Track Record In Handling Personal Injury Claims

As our clients’ legal representatives, we have a duty to act in their best interests by providing well-founded legal advice and pursuing the best possible outcomes for their personal injury cases. While we settle some cases out-of-court, we are not afraid to file a lawsuit and pursue cases all the way to trial to ensure that our clients receive the compensation they deserve. Unlike some law firms that manipulate clients to make certain decisions, our lawyers will never force you to agree to a settlement that will not meet your requirements. When you collaborate with Boland Romaine, we prioritize your interests. We only get paid when we recover compensation on behalf of our clients.
We keep our clients informed about the progress of their cases throughout the claim process. Personal injury claims could take months or years to resolve.

Areas of Practice Experience
At Boland Romaine, we put our clients' needs before our own. We are a renowned Markham personal injury law firm that has stood apart from other law firms. We are conveniently located in Markham to enable us to serve our clients efficiently. We represent clients in these practice areas:
  • Vehicle Accidents

    Vehicle accidents can be extremely traumatizing; you can never prepare for the physical and emotional after-effects of a sudden accident.

    Car accidents can range from minor accidents to devastating crashes. The injuries suffered could range from minor to catastrophic, and they include loss of sight, loss of limb, paralysis, or permanent disability. If you or your loved one has been injured in a car accident, you are entitled to seek compensation for your damages. Some of the damages that you can recover from a car accident include medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, and property damage.

    For you to recover damages for pain and suffering, your injuries must cross the threshold of being serious and permanent. You need an aggressive lawyer by your side to help you prove that you deserve compensation for pain and suffering. At Boland Romaine, our lawyers have taken on some of the most complicated personal injury cases, taken them through trial, and recorded amazing outcomes.
    Some of our past cases include:

    • MacDonald v. Talaba, where the defendant only offered $10k, but we recovered $356,020 after taking the case to trial.
    • Cockburn v. Holmes, where the defendant wasn’t willing to pay a dime, but our lawyers recovered $420,000 by having the threshold abandoned amid trial.
    • Copeland v. Knox, where the defendant offered $37,360, but the jury awarded the plaintiff $161,591.34 when the case proceeded to trial.
  • Slip and Fall Accidents

    You may be entitled to compensation if you slip and fall on someone’s property, but you must first prove that the property owner was negligent.

    A slip-and-fall accident is an event whereby someone trips or falls on someone else’s property, including a business, store, sidewalk, public street, or private home. The common causes of slip-and-fall accidents are wet floors, loose carpets, loose rugs or mats, loose floorboards, cracks or potholes, spillage of liquids or food, uneven sidewalks or flooring, exposed wiring, and other hazards.

    The common injuries you could sustain from a slip and fall accident include cuts and bruises, traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, and spine or nerve damage. Our lawyers are experienced in handling slip-and-fall lawsuits; we will help you seek the compensation you deserve.

    Our trial experience sets us apart and helps us maximize compensation for our clients:

    • Johnson v Lewin: the trial judge awarded our client +$1,000,000 against his former lawyer, who failed to prosecute a claim against the municipality responsible for maintaining a driveway apron.
    • Derry v C.F. Realty Holdings: the jury found a shopping mall 90% responsible for ice on the sidewalk and awarded our client more than double the insurance company’s final settlement offer.
  • Bike Accidents

    Cases involving bicycle accidents can be as rigorous as conventional car accident claims. It is, therefore, crucial to hire a lawyer to assist you following a bicycle accident.

    Whether you are riding for recreation or a bike is your only way to get around, there is this wonderful feeling that you get when riding. However, you are prone to accidents as with any other type of transportation. A bicycle accident can leave you with extensive injuries. The good news is that our lawyers have decades of experience in handling bicycle accident claims.

    Our recent trial decisions include:

    • Pelletier v HMQ: we recovered over +$3,000,000 at trial for our client, who was struck by an OPP vehicle while riding his bike at night.
  • Catastrophic Injury

    Catastrophic injuries have severe and long-term repercussions that could permanently alter your life and leave you with huge medical bills.

    The common types of catastrophic injuries include loss of a limb, extensive burns, spinal cord injuries, severe brain injuries, or injuries that cause paralysis. Catastrophic injuries could affect many systems, including the central nervous system, respiratory, urinary, and circulatory systems, among others.

    Our catastrophic injury lawyers at Boland Romaine will do everything possible to ensure that you receive ample compensation for your injuries.

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    Have you sustained a brain injury? Speak to our brain injury lawyers to help you seek the highest level of compensation.

    You can suffer several types of brain injuries in an accident, including traumatic brain injury, brain aneurysm, stroke, brain tumour, and brain hemorrhage. Our lawyers work with medical experts to help us understand the extent of your brain injury. We will help you seek compensation to enable you to move forward by giving you the finances you need to live a normal life.

    Our trial results evidence our abilities to secure the greatest recovery:

    • Wasylyk v Simcoe County: secured a +$16,000,000 judgment for a severe traumatic brain injury.
    • Pelletier v HMQ: we recovered over +$3,000,000 for a cyclist that suffered a traumatic brain injury resulting in cognitive deficiencies.
  • Fractures & Joint Injuries

    Serious orthopedic injuries to bones, ligaments, and joints require experienced personal injury lawyers who can recover the compensation that reflects the long-term risk and prognosis.

    Our personal injury lawyers in Markham successfully prosecute these cases to recover the full amount for clients, even if it requires fighting at trial:

    • Thornhill v Shadid: the trial judge awarded our client over +$1,800,000 following a complex knee fracture.
    • Johnson v Lewin: we recovered over +$1,000,000 for a client that suffered a severe ligament tear in his knee.
    • Barbeau v Ruchetta: the jury awarded our client over +$750,000 following knee fracture requiring multiple surgeries.
  • Burn Injuries

    Burn injuries in an accident can result from contact with hot water, hot metal, steam coming from a damaged radiator or other heated elements.

    Most burns will damage the skin layers, but deeper burns could damage the tissue or even the bone. If not treated, burn injuries could lead to severe complications, including dehydration, infection, amputation, permanent scars, or even death.

    Our lawyers at Boland Romaine understand the agony that can result from burn injuries. We will use our knowledge and experience to seek the compensation you deserve.

    Most burns will damage the skin layers, but deeper burns could damage the tissue or even the bone. Our burn injury lawyers have over 40 years experience recovering financial compensation for those with burn injuries as a result of someone else’s negligence, including at trial:

    • Taylor v Allard: we argued at trial and to the Ontario Court of Appeal to recover over +$130,000 for an individual with serious second and third degree burns to the left side of his body.
  • Amputation Cases

    Boland Romaine has many years of experience working with victims who have sustained amputation injuries because of another party’s negligence or wrongful acts.

    Our law firm has earned a solid reputation as the go-to for amputation lawyers, and we take pride in helping clients to rebuild their lives following an amputation. We understand the magnitude of stress that you and your family are facing. We will take off the burden of negotiating a settlement or going to trial by handling all the legal aspects of your case while you concentrate on recovery.

  • Product Liability

    If you suffer harm due to a defective product, call our lawyers today. We will help you file a product liability claim to seek compensation.

    Most people do not think about the fact that some items they buy could be harmful to them or their families if manufacturers do not make these products with adequate care and foresight. Every day, innocent people die because of manufacturers’ mistakes and negligence. The lawyers at Boland Romaine will ensure that the liable manufacturers pay for the damage they cause you.

  • Motorcycle Accidents

    When you are involved in a motorcycle accident, you should ensure that you have the right team of legal professionals by your side.

    When you hire our experienced motorcycle accident lawyers at Boland Romaine, you can be confident that they will handle the claim process correctly, right from filing the claim to the settlement or trial. Our motorcycle accident lawyers are committed to fighting for the rights of injured victims like you. Contact us today to schedule a consultation with one of our lawyers.

    We have successfully taken motorcycle accident cases to trial where insurance companies have offered little in compensation:

    • Cockburn v. Holmes: we took the case to trial and recovered nearly $420,000 over the insurer’s offer of $0.
  • Pedestrian Accidents

    A pedestrian accident lawyer can investigate your case and determine who is at fault for your accident.

    All too often, the defendant will offer you a quick settlement following a pedestrian accident. In most cases, this settlement is not even close to what your case is worth. A lawyer will represent your interests during the negotiation with the defendant and the insurance company. We will even file a lawsuit to seek compensation if necessary. Our lawyers at Boland Romaine will focus on protecting your legal rights and determining the value of your claim while you focus on your recovery.

    We have extensive experience prosecuting at-fault drivers and recovering compensation for brain injuries and fractures suffered by pedestrians:

    • Barbeau v Ruchetta: the jury awarded our client over +$750,000 after an inattentive truck driver struck her as she crossed at a crosswalk.
  • Municipal Liability

    You have a right to file a municipal liability claim if you suffer damages due to the negligent acts of the municipality. Our lawyers have successfully handled thousands of municipal liability claims, and we are ready to help you.

    The municipality could be liable for your damages if you are involved in an accident due to broken traffic lights, inappropriate or missing road signs, missing guardrails, uneven roads, debris on highways, or unrepaired potholes. When filing a claim against the municipality, you must submit a notice of your personal injury claim to the municipality within ten days of your accident. Our lawyers will ensure that you file the claim within the applicable time limits to maximize your chances of receiving compensation.

    Our leadership in the area is based on our proven track record of advocating for the seriously injured at trial and holding municipalities and road authorities accountable:

    • Wasylyk v Simcoe County: we obtained a +$16,000,000 judgment for a catastrophically hurt driver after establishing the County failed to properly clear a road of ice.
    • Thornhill v Shadid: the trial judge awarded our client over +$1,800,000 in a case where the municipality claimed it was 0% responsible for the accident.
