Expert Cross-Border Injury Lawyers: Your Advocates Beyond Boundaries

Texas is one of the top travel destinations for Canadian tourists. Half a million Canadians travel to the Lone Star State each year. Unparalleled barbeque and countless outdoor activities make a promising retreat for individuals and families alike.

Unfortunately, traveling to Texas is not without its risks. Accidents can occur without warning and cause serious harm.

In Canada, many physical and mental rehabilitation options fall outside of health insurance. Those included offer insufficient sessions for proper healing.

By initiating legal claims, you can receive financial and medical benefits from your auto insurance and the insurance of the driver who caused the accident.

Recovering compensation for your personal injury is difficult as it is, but getting injured outside of your home province adds new layers of complexity.

Personal injury claims require a lawyer in the area the accident occured. Normally this isn’t a problem as the accident location is the same as where you reside. Having been injured in Texas, however, this is no longer the case.
