Toronto Transit Commission disaster of August 11, 1995
On August 11, 1995 two trains collided in the underground subway system of the Toronto Transit Commission ("TTC"). Three people, including Xian Hui Lin, lost their lives and countless others were injured. Kemp Law was retained by the spouse of Ms Lin to commence legal action against the TTC related to the death of Ms Lin as well as injuries that he sustained in the accident. The TTC admitted liability for the accident and the action was settled before trial.
Kevin Kemp also had standing and acted as counsel throughout the Coroner's Inquest that was held in relation to the accident.
