All personal injury and insurance claims are handled on contingency, which means the client does not pay upfront legal fees or costs until the case is resolved. This gives our clients access to the highest quality legal representation without concerns about affordability. Our services to accident, injury and disability clients are part of Lenehan Musgrave’s commitment to Access to Justice.

Lenehan Musgrave’s accident, injury and disability team is led by Sean Layden Q.C., and Daniel Wood.  Both Sean and Daniel are dedicated personal injury lawyers who work relentlessly to ensure their client’s legal rights are protected and that their interests are advanced in the most efficient and effective manner.

Sean has practiced personal injury and insurance law for over 25 years. Sean has represented clients who have suffered every type of injury and loss, including the most catastrophic. He is skilled and experienced in the complex legal and procedural issues that arise in the most difficult claims.

Daniel has been practicing personal injury law for over six years. Daniel thinks creatively and fights hard to ensure his clients are fully compensated. He has added great value to accident victims in a large range of cases, including the seemingly simple and minor that many people believe they can handle themselves to the clearly complicated and catastrophic that can be overwhelming to individuals and their families.

Sean and Daniel do not believe in taking a cookie cutter approach to personal injury and disability claims. They understand that each client has their own unique background, priorities, and objectives.  

The Lenehan Musgrave team is here to help you every step of the way level the playing field against the insurers, so as to ensure fair compensation.  To schedule a free no-risk case meeting with Sean or Daniel, please call 902-466-2200, or email personal injury legal assistant Tina Ryan (
