Biography

Stacey Stevens’ practice is entirely devoted to helping people with serious personal injuries. Her practice is devoted to representing people who have been traumatically injured in car accidents, motorcycle accidents, boating accidents, slip/trip and falls, as well as victims of sexual assault.

Stacey joined Thomson Rogers in 2006 after gaining valuable experience working for ten years with lawyers and their clients in the area of plaintiff personal injury litigation. She is a graduate of Osgoode Hall Law School and was called to the Bar in 2005. Stacey is one of three national recipients of the 2003 Tom Wilcox Scholarship award for her academic achievements and dedication to insurance law. Stacey’s expertise and professionalism have been recognized and sought out in interviews on Canada AM, the Business News Network and CFRB Radio and in newspapers and magazines including the Lawyer’s Weekly, Law Times, The Litigator, and The Globe and Mail.

Stacey believes that achieving exceptional results in personal injury claims requires creativity, dedication, perseverance and hard work. She is committed to applying those qualities on behalf of all her clients. Although her office is in Toronto, Stacey maintains her “small town” roots. She and her family live in Central Ontario and many of her clients are from this area.

Stacey’s passion for justice continues through her volunteer work. She is a member of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association, the Advocates’ Society and the Canadian Bar Association. She volunteers as Legal Counsel for Spinal Cord Injury Action Canada, is on the Board of the Central East Brain Injury Association, and is a lawyer with the Family Legal Health Program at the Hospital for Sick Children. Says Stacey:

“No one plans on being in an accident. It happens in the blink of an eye and can turn a person’s life into a state of turmoil. The last thing they need is to have to fight an insurance company at a time when the focus should be on their recovery. That’s my job.”

Stacey has the honour of having been selected by her peers to be published in the Canadian Legal Lexpert® Directory as a leading practitioner in the field of plaintiff personal injury litigation.  She has also earned the highest peer rating of AV Preeminent® in Martindale-Hubbell® for her legal expertise, communication skills, and ethical standards.

Testimonials

Joseph

After a serious accident, Joseph remembers a car coming towards him and then he remembers nothingness. He was a pedestrian who was struck by a hit and run driver. The injuries were so bad doctor’s thought they might need to amputate his right leg. Joesph didn’t know if he would be confined to a wheelchair or if he would ever walk again.

Jospeh found Thomson Rogers personal injury lawyer Stacey Stevens who helped Joseph navigate through all the implications of his serious accident, allowing him to focus on recovery.

Sara

Personal Injury Lawyers Stacey Stevens and L. Craig Brown – Making a Difference

Sara was on the back of an ATV with her friend who was driving. The last thing Sara remembers is asking her friend to be careful and slow down because she was driving too fast.

Sara woke up in the hospital to find out there was an accident in which her friend was thrown from the vehicle. Unfortunately for Sara, she was stuck on the ATV and it had landed on her chest. It was explained to Sara that she had acquired a brain injury but she didn’t quite understand what that meant. Sara was terrified.

Sara and her mother did not realize they had a case against the owner and driver of the ATV, but that all changed because of the work of Thomson Rogers’ personal injury lawyers Stacey Stevens and L. Craig Brown.

Jackie

After a serious accident, Jackie remembers all the airbags had deployed and it was like snow all over the car. All she saw was a car coming through the intersection.

Jackie then found Thomson Rogers personal injury lawyer Stacey Stevens who helped her navigate through all the implications of her serious accident, allowing her to focus on recovery.

Levi

Don Spruce remembers the sense of panic he felt when someone came to his door and told him that his young son, Levi, had been injured. Levi had fallen off some playground equipment while holding a piece of metal rod, which ended up driven into his head. At the hospital, doctors discovered that Levi had suffered a traumatic brain injury.

Today, Levi is doing much better. Thomson Rogers Personal Injury Lawyers helped Don and Levi launch litigation to secure Levi’s future. Though it took eight years to conclude, Thomson Rogers stood by Levi and his case because it’s always worth fighting for a child’s future.
