In 1985, Murray Miskin founded the law firm which is now known as Miskin Law Professional Corporation. We represent injured people in civil litigation and offer additional legal services. Our main office is in Peterborough, Ontario and we have offices in Lindsay and Whitby by appointment only.
Our focus is on personal injury and class action claims. We are the leading law firm in Canada that represents victims of asbestos who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma. We also handle wills & estates.
We work on personal injury cases all over Southern Ontario. We make house calls, or can meet you at your choice of office, from Peterborough, Lindsay or Whitby. We also have clients across Canada for asbestos claims and class actions. We have been involved since 2004 with many pharmaceutical class actions claims.
For personal injury, such as car accidents and class action cases we work under contingency fee basis, meaning we will not charge or get paid until and unless we settle or win your case.
We talk with our clients in plain English, we are relatable and understanding. We are driven and passionate about helping clients and our community.
Asbestos exposure is the No. 1 cause of occupational death in Canada
Asbestos is naturally occurring substance on earth and most people diagnosed with mesothelioma worked with the substance very often during their career. However many workers brought this deadly dust home with them, and unknowingly gave their partners the deadly disease when washing their clothing, or simply being close enough to inhale the dust on their work clothing. When asbestos is inhaled, tiny dust particles stay in the lungs for many years until they form a very serious type of cancer. Some people that worked with or used asbestos are lucky to not develop this cancer, and others, not as much.
The most common form of mesothelioma is pleural mesothelioma, in the lungs. There is also peritoneal in the body cavity, and the most rare forms: pericardial and testicular mesothelioma.
