Snowbird Confidence

Car insurance, Private Health Insurance, Statutory Accident Benefits and Cross Border Accidents. Can we say more?

Did you know there are approximately 4 million Canadian and USA “Snowbirds” that travel south every winter? Who can blame them for wanting to escape the harsh cold weather. Unfortunately, during this mass migration south, some snowbirds get into very serious car accidents. “Regardless of where and how an accident happens – it is never expected. When the unthinkable happens – we are in your corner.”

Joseph Pileggi is the CEO and originator of Cross Border Confidence, Snowbird Accidents, and its various derivative companies.  He presently resides both in Canada and the US. For over 35 years he worked with and was tutored by some of Canada’s best personal injury Lawyers: Earl Cherniak Q.C.; Ken Howie Q.C; and, Lawrence Mandel Q.C.  All three have at one time or another been members of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers.

Joseph was taught how important it is for US and Canadian legal counsel to work to together. It is the only way to ensure accident victims are fairly compensated regardless of where their Tort and contractual claims are to be enforced. In addition, the lawyers share one contingency fee based on the work performed.  From an injured victims position, they receive the services of two excellent legal counsel, all for the price of one.

Joseph became one of the most experienced Law Clerks in Canada both in the preparation and presentation of trials and arbitrations.  He dealt primarily with Catastrophic injury victims who suffered quadriplegia, paraplegia, brain injury and amputation. He also became a tremendous advocate on behalf of the disabled.  He was part of the “War Amputees of Canada’s” successful endeavour to have the Canadian Government re-compensate the Thalidomide drug victims. He was part of the first independent NHL arbitration on behalf of a disabled hockey player. He was part of the Canadian Residential Schools Class Action.
