I was involved in a motor vehicle accident and suffered serious injuries. Although I was working at the time of the accident the Insurance Company did not believe me because my boss at the time did not provide the proper paperwork and he had never actually paid me before the accident occurred. Therefore the Insurer refused to pay any income replacement benefits to me which was financially devastating. My lawyer Ryan Naimark and his associate, Anastasia Sukalsky, vigorously pursued the Insurance Company and took it all the way to an arbitration hearing which they expertly conducted. In the end, we won as the Arbitrator accepted that my job was real and the Insurance Company now has to pay all the income replacement benefits they refused to pay for years, plus interest and ongoing income replacement benefits as well. Hiring Naimark Law Firm was one of the best decisions I have made and I would highly recommend them to anyone else who needs a strong personal injury lawyer! – U.F.

I was involved in a motor vehicle accident where I was rear ended by a vehicle that left the scene of the accident. I suffered from significant chronic pain and severe psychological problems following that accident. I could not return to my prior job working as a personal support worker.

In the end Ryan settled my accident benefits and tort claim for $1, 583,000 which includes the $313,000 that I received when the Insurer reinstated my benefits and paid all arrears shortly before the hearing plus interest.

His dedication and advocacy skills are second to none. –N.C.
I retained Ryan Naimark after I was involved in a serious motor vehicle accident when I was struck by a pickup truck while I was a pedestrian crossing the road. I was impressed not only with phenomenal results but also with the manner in which Ryan and his team handled my file. My tort and accident benefit files settled for approximately $2,633,000. The accident benefits insurer was very difficult to deal with but in the end they finally paid my income replacement benefits (two weeks before the arbitration hearing), reinstated my attendant care benefit (also shortly before the arbitration hearing) and paid approximately $1,233,000.00 to settle my case about a one week before the hearing. Ryan aggressively moved my case to an arbitration hearing and was prepared to go to battle for me but at the end the insurer capitulated and provided the compensation that I deserved. I would highly recommend Ryan and his team to anyone who sustained serious injuries in an accident. — M.M.

Thank you again Ryan! — H.N.
I hired Ryan Naimark to represent me on my accident benefits case and to take over my long term disability case because my former lawyer refused to represent me on my accident benefits case. My former lawyer did not think that the accident benefits claim was worthwhile because I had returned to work for approximately 2.5 years after my motor vehicle accident. That claim that was “not worthwhile” was settled by Ryan Naimark in excess of 1 million dollars. He also obtained an excellent result for my long term disability claim. I would highly recommend Ryan Naimark and his team for any personal injury, accident benefits and long term/short term disability claim. — J.P.

Without you I could not have made my dreams a reality! — B.W.
I was involved in a single vehicle collision when my vehicle crashed into a bridge. I sustained multiple fractures in that accident but I made a very good recovery. My lawyer, Ryan Naimark arranged catastrophic assessments which eventually resulted in a catastrophic designation. Ryan was able to settle my accident benefits claim for $1, 250,000 despite my significant improvement. Although I was very impressed with this settlement I was equally impressed with the unbelievable service Ryan and his team provided. I had a lot of problems following this accident and when I needed a lawyer to help me with family law issues Ryan not only found me an excellent lawyer he worked out a payment arrangement with this lawyer so that payment was deferred until my case settled. This took a lot of pressure off me and allowed me to focus on my recovery. I would highly recommend Ryan and his team in a serious personal injury matter. – J.B.

I would highly recommend Ryan Naimark and his dedicated team if your life was turned upside down due to an accident! – A.A.
Unfortunately, I was driving a vehicle that I did not have consent to drive when I was involved in a serious motor vehicle accident. To make matters worse, I was found to be at fault for the accident. Although I sustained a serious leg injury in the accident, the insurance company gave me a very hard time because of the circumstances surrounding this accident. Ryan Naimark fought back really hard back against the insurance company and he continued to build my case and move it towards an arbitration hearing to challenge all of the denials. This strategy worked wonders because a few weeks before the hearing Ryan was able to settle my accident benefits case for ONE MILLION DOLLARS. This is amazing because I didn’t think I would get any money at all in light of how the accident happened. Thanks Ryan for sticking with me and for getting me a life changing result. — A.N.
I was involved in a motor vehicle accident, which led to back pain and other soft tissue injuries. I was able to work for over 1.5 years after the accident in a physically demanding job. Over the years my back pain got worse and eventually I had to stop working. Ryan Naimark and his associate, Anastasia Sukalsky, vigorously represented my interests on both my Tort and Accident Benefits case. They were able to secure a settlement of my tort case for $994,700.00. Shortly prior to the Accident Benefits arbitration, Ryan Naimark was able to get the insurer to reinstate all my benefits and pay the maximum interest and costs. I could not have asked for a more favourable result – Ryan and Anastasia expertly handled my Tort and Accident Benefits cases. They got me the result I needed to change my life and I would recommend them highly! – S.G.
I was involved in several car accidents. I met with another lawyer before retaining Ryan Naimark. This other lawyer would not accept my case because at the time of the car accidents I was already on a disability pension due to a prior accident, which resulted in a traumatic brain injury, soft tissue injuries and a seizure disorder. I also had a pre-existing bipolar condition. The accident benefits insurer for the automobile accidents initially disputed my claims blaming all of my problems on my pre-existing conditions. However, Ryan Naimark was able to settle my accident benefit claims for more than $848,000.00 despite my prior conditions. Ryan worked extremely hard to diligently pursue my claims and was a very passionate advocate. I certainly would recommend him for any personal injury or disability claim. Thank You Ryan! — E.B.
Ryan Naimark represented me in relation to my motor vehicle accident. Following the accident, I suffered from chronic pain.

Ryan settled my Tort, Accident Benefits and LTD claim for approximately $800,000 which is amazing! He is still pursuing my short-term disability and wrongful dismissal claim and I have every confidence that he will achieve another excellent result! — M.A.
Following my car accident I developed a certain illness where many of the doctors did not know what was wrong with me. The Insurance company and their doctors blamed all of my problems on a condition which they said was not related to the car accident. My previous lawyer thought I should settle my accident t benefits claim for about $100,000. I got a second opinion from Ryan who agreed to take over my file from my previous lawyer. Ryan settled my accident benefits case for $720,000 and my tort case is still ongoing. Transferring my case to Ryan was one of the best decisions I ever made! — N.I.
I retained Ryan Naimark to represent me after my car accident. I sustained soft tissue injuries in the accident. At the time of the accident I was off of work due to a prior hip injury.

The tort claim is still ongoing and I have complete faith in Ryan to obtain another superb result in that case as well. — H.A.
I am very grateful for everything that Ryan Naimark has done for me and my family. I am extremely impressed with the result achieved by Ryan and his team. Because I was involved a single vehicle motorcycle accident, many people including other lawyers told me that I did not have a tort claim because the unidentified driver who cut me off was not mentioned on the police report. However, Ryan was able to settle my tort claim for $450,000 despite that the unidentified driver was never found. Ryan also settled my accident benefits file for $125,000 for a total of $575,000. Great work Ryan! I will definitely refer you to my friends and family if they ever need a personal injury lawyer. — T.P.
When I was 62 years old I was involved in a motor vehicle accident. There was minimal property damage and I did not go to the hospital from the scene. I did not have an income loss as I was retired when the accident occurred and I had a prior elbow injury where I had undergone surgery before the accident. However, I re-injured by elbow in this accident and I had some psychological problems as well. Ryan and Iqbal did an amazing job building up my case and were able to settle my tort and accident benefits case for $555,000 which is remarkable given that I was expecting much less than this. I would highly to recommend Ryan and Iqbal to anyone who needs an excellent legal team.-T.K.

Ryan Naimark resolved all my claims arising from my car accident for $509,300. Aside from my settlement, Canada Pension Plan (“CPP’) disability denied my claim. Ryan Naimark appealed my CPP claim, attended the hearing and he won the appeal. The government paid me all the money owing and I continue to get CPP benefits every month. I just want say thank you Ryan for your help. You have made a huge difference in my life for which my family and I will always be grateful. We will always remember you! — M.B.
I was hit by a car while I was a pedestrian in a parking lot. Fortunately I did not break any bones and all of the imaging (MRIs, Xrays, CT scans etc) were normal. However, I did suffer from chronic pain and I never returned to my job working in an administrative capacity. Although I have a longstanding history of depression, the accident made my depression worse. Ryan built up my case because initially the insurance company was not taking my injuries and problems seriously. Shortly before trial, with a lot of hard work and dedication Ryan was able to settle my tort claim for $400,000. I highly recommend Ryan and his firm for anyone seriously injured in a car accident! — K.O.
I slipped and fell on black ice in a parking lot. I reported the accident the next day although the parking lot did not have a record of it and did not complete an incident report. I sustained a concussion and suffered from chronic pain after that accident. Although I returned to work for almost two years following the accident I had difficulty working. I retained Ryan Naimark and he settled my case for $380,000. Mr. Naimark was very informative from the initial consultation to the final settlement, and he delivered the results he had forecasted during the initial meeting. I was very impressed and would not hesitate to recommend him for any personal injury case. — E.D.
After my car accident the Insurer really gave me a hard time. Because I have a prior history of psychological problems the Insurer blamed my psychological problems that I was having after the accident on events that occurred before the accident. The Insurer also took the position that my knee injury was not caused by the accident and they did not believe that my claims were legitimate. Basically the Insurer attempted to deflect all responsibility for this accident even though the accident turned my life upside down. I retained Ryan to deal with my insurance company because I was exhausted and felt defeated. When we went to a mediation with the Insurance company, the Insurer only offered me about $12, 000. However, Ryan built my case up and was prepared to go to arbitration against the Insurance company and to fight for me. Right before the hearing, the Insurance Company finally took my case seriously and Ryan settled my accident benefits case for $300,000. The other case for my pain and suffering is still ongoing and I have no doubt that Ryan will obtain another remarkable result for me. If you need someone to fight for you, I would definitely recommend Ryan Naimark and his team! — P.B.
Fortunately I didn’t have any broken bones from my car accident but after the accident I suffered from chronic pain and from psychological problems including depression and anxiety. The accident benefits insurer initially did not pay any accident benefits to me at all because they falsely accused me of misrepresentation. The insurer eventually dropped the misrepresentation defence but still did not pay me income replacement benefits despite the fact that I was off work. However, Ryan argued that the termination was improper because I was cut off income replacement benefits without the Insurer conducting a psychological assessment of me. As a result, a few weeks before the Arbitration hearing was scheduled to commence, Ryan was able to settle my accident benefits case for $300,000. Ryan’s prior experience defending insurance companies came in handy because he was able identify a significant mistake made by the insurance company which ultimately led to an amazing settlement. My other claim against the at fault driver is still ongoing and I have all the faith that Ryan will get me an excellent settlement in that case as well. I am so grateful that Ryan is my lawyer.
My family retained Ryan after my husband was catastrophically injured in a serious motor vehicle accident. Fortunately, I was not in the vehicle at the time but I was at the scene of the accident shortly after it happened. I suffered an adverse psychological reaction as a result. I received weekly income replacement benefits as a result of this trauma and Ryan settled my accident benefits claim for over $100,000. I also received Long Term Disability Benefits through my workplace insurer and Ryan settled that claim for $178, 500. I thought this was remarkable given that I was not involved in the accident. Ryan diligently pursued the insurers to ensure that I was optimally compensated for my losses. Thanks again Ryan for your support and passionate advocacy. — C.W.
I have a long history of depression which started before the accident following the birth of my daughter. I was not working at the time of the accident and I had not worked for many years. Although the accident was fairly minor, following the accident my prior depression was made much worse which made functioning difficult. Ryan was able to build up my tort claim and managed to settle it for $275,000 which was very impressive in light of my prior history and the modest nature of the accident itself. I have recommended Ryan to everyone who needs a personal injury lawyer and I will continue to do so as he is the best at what he does.
I was involved in a single vehicle collision when I was 21 years old. Although the injuries were only soft tissue in nature I was suffering from chronic pain. I had a physical job at the time of the accident and a learning disability and some prior health problems. Although I had returned to work for about 6 months after the accident I was unable to continue due my chronic pain. My previous lawyer was pressuring me to settle my file for $7,000 which was only $2,000 higher than the $5,000 the Insurance Company offered me when I was self-represented. I didn’t want to take the $7,000 so I switched my file over to Ryan Naimark who spent a lot of time and resources building my case. Switching to Ryan was the best decision I ever made because Ryan settled my file for $250,000. I think his previous experience defending insurance companies helped him identify the problems with the Insurance Companies position. I would highly recommend Ryan if you want to get maximum compensation for your injuries! – T.R.
I had been a committed employee of a company working as a Machine Technician for over 20 years, and was unable to continue working, after my motor vehicle accident. The insurer terminated my benefits claiming I could return to work on a physical basis, but my injuries, were primarily psychological in nature. I had no history of clinical anxiety or depression prior to my accident. The insurer had terminated my income replacement benefits based on reports prepared by the insurer’s assessors. I hired Naimark Law to vigorously fight the insurance company to get me the compensation I deserve. One of the lawyers assigned to the case, Zeitoon Vaezzadeh, successfully challenged the insurer’s examination reports and obtained a $235,000 settlement for me. The amount of work that the firm and staff invested in my case to obtain this settlement was very impressive. I always felt like a priority client. My family and I are very pleased with the outcome. I know that their experience as former insurance defence lawyers helped in getting a favourable settlement. – G.E.
I was involved in two motor vehicle accidents a few months apart. As a result of the accidents I suffered from chronic pain, psychological problems and dizziness. At the time of the accident I had a very light job working as a manager. The accident benefits insurer initially did not take my injuries seriously. They initially did not pay me any income replacement benefits or attendant care and they placed my injury in the Minor Injury Guideline meaning I was only eligible for $3500 in treatment. Ryan Naimark pursued the insurance company for the accident benefits he said I was entitled to and shortly before the hearing he settled my accident benefits claim for $200,000. I am ecstatic with this result which far exceeded my expectations. I have every confidence that Ryan will achieve another amazing result in the tort case which is still ongoing. — M.M.
I injured my back at work when I bent over to pick something up. Since the injury was soft tissue without any objective findings on imaging, my employer and Long Term disability Insurer gave me a really hard time and tried to force me back to work before I was ready and able. I retained Ryan Naimark to sue the Insurer. Ryan achieved an excellent result for me by managing to settle my case for over $164,000. In addition, I was equally impressed by the service, professionalism and dedication exhibited by both Ryan Naimark and his paralegal Deanna Di Schiavi. I would highly recommend Ryan Naimark and his dedicated team for your long term disability claim! – R.K.
Ryan Naimark handled my claims after I was involved in a motor vehicle accident. The accident benefits insurer terminated my income replacement benefits on the basis that I was just suffering from soft tissue injuries and since I had a light job (working in an administrative capacity) they took the position that I could return to work even though I wasn’t able to. The Insurer even placed me in the Minor Injury Guideline for treatment purposes which Ryan disputed. Ryan and his team built my case by retaining top experts to challenge the biased insurance company doctors’ assessments. In the end Ryan settled my accident benefits case for $140, 000 and the tort case is still ongoing. Thanks Ryan for your hard work, dedication and skilful legal manoeuvring. — N.B.
