In August 2015, Jeremy Diamond’s firm took on the case of Tawfiqul Alam, an UberX driver in Toronto who was T-boned by a red-light runner while transporting a passenger on June 9. The accident sent both him and his passenger to hospital and totaled his minivan.
Diamond has also fought for victims’ rights through major class actions which have made national headlines. A 2019 suit against the makers of the popular herbicide Roundup totalled $500 million while another suit in the same year took on Capital One to the tune of $350 million. The suit was on behalf of Plaintiffs seeking legal compensation after a data breach leaked various aspects of their personal information.
