Biography

Lucy is a personal injury and class action lawyer at Thomson Rogers. Her practice involves helping people who have been seriously injured in motor vehicle collisions, slip/trip and fall accidents, assault and battery, as well as medical device and product liability claims. In addition, Lucy’s class action practice involves claims of institutional abuse, negligent misrepresentation, breach of the Consumer Protection Act, in addition to personal injury claims.

Lucy has worked on a number of successfully resolved class actions with the Class Action Group at Thomson Rogers, including Zhang v Dupont, which involved allegations of breach of duty of informed consent regarding a medical procedure performed on the class. She also assisted with the successful certification and settlement approval of Goyal v Niagara College, 2020 ONSC 739. This certified and settled class action involved allegations by the class of international students that the defendant made alleged misrepresentations to them.

In the course of her practice, Lucy regularly attends Examinations for Discovery and Mediations on behalf of her clients, as well as appears before the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. She advocates to ensure that her clients and their families have access to the medical and rehabilitation treatment they need under the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (the no-fault benefits regime for victims of motor vehicle accidents). Lucy also has experience assisting her clients with their claims for Long Term Disability and Canada Pension Plan Disability Benefits. In the course of her legal practice, Lucy works with private and community treatment providers throughout Ontario.

Lucy is also a Member of the Board of Directors and the Recording Secretary for the Community Head Injury Resource Services (CHIRS) in Toronto, Ontario. CHIRS is a community based brain injury rehabilitation program that provides a variety of critical services to its clients, including supportive living accommodations and clinical programs.

Prior to joining Thomson Rogers as an associate, Lucy articled with the firm. While at law school, Lucy completed a semester at the Dalhousie Legal Aid Clinic, advocating on behalf of low-income clients at various courts in Nova Scotia. She also worked as a legal research intern at the Centre for Law and Democracy, an international human rights organization, and assisted clients locally at the Legal Information Society of Nova Scotia and the Immigrant Services Association of Nova Scotia. In recognition of her academic merit and community service, Lucy received the Schulich Scholarship in Law and the Clifford Rae Achievement Award.

Outside of work, Lucy enjoys spending time with friends and family, listening to live music, and watching any and all Toronto sporting events.

Testimonials

Monica

My Lawyers; David MacDonald, Stephen Birman and Lucy Jacksonn, along with Senior Law Clerk Christina Chimonides, are an absolute, amazing legal team. My late brother, also a lawyer, was very impressed with them. I am very impressed with their knowledge, professionalism, quick responses, genuine compassion, and no-nonsense attitude in dealing with defendants in my case. I am very happy with the work done so far on my case. I highly recommend this legal team!!

The level of professionalism, guidance, integrity and support Lucy Jackson provided during a difficult and prolonged recovery was sincerely appreciated…she has our utmost respect and gratitude!

Lucy Jackson and her team were persistent, informative, and personable, which are quality things you need when dealing with a case of this nature. Not only that, she was empathetic and caring and patient, she made sure I received the care I needed when dealing with my injuries when I needed it, and what amazed me the most is even in the midst of a worldwide pandemic she did not miss a beat. She helped me secure a financial compensation that I was more than satisfied with, ultimately she was the best thing to come from a terrible situation and I would definitely recommend her services to anyone who is looking for a legal representation of any sorts.

Maryse P.

In every bad situation there are still good people helping others. Lucy Jackson was one of those people who made a difference.
