At Howie, Sacks & Henry we only practise personal injury law. And it shows.  With more than 30 years experience, our dedication to handle serious personal injury cases with compassion, professionalism, and expertise has made us one of Canada’s top personal injury law firms, as ranked by our peers in Canadian Lawyer Magazine. In 2011 we were ranked Top 5, and now Top 10 in 2013 when the list was expanded.

Our clients are a life and not just a file

Providing compassion and personal attention to every client has resulted in settlements for hundreds of clients , a host of satisfied clients, and referrals from other lawyers.

We will not settle for less

What sets us apart is that we are one of the few firms who have trial experience. When insurance companies learn we are on the case, they often re-evaluate their strategies because they know we are not afraid of the courtroom. This level of respect is a direct result of our expertise and the reputation we have earned over the years for always fighting as hard and as smart as we can on behalf of our clients.

Accidents and injuries

Most of our cases involve the following types of accidents and injuries:

Mass Tort Litigation and Product Liability Injuries

We also advance mass tort claims (individual lawsuits) and class actions on behalf of people injured by dangerous products, pharmaceuticals and medical devices, including:


Since the early 1990’s, all automobile policies in Ontario have included statutory accident benefits coverage. Even with these rights, accident victims understandably often have the impression the accident benefits process is simple, but usually it’s not.

By vigorously protecting your rights against insurance companies before the courts and the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO), we can help relieve the stress and confusion that comes with navigating the no-fault benefit insurance system, and ensure you receive full compensation.

We have handled many disability and critical illness insurance disputes. If your claim was denied, we can evaluate whether or not the insurance company’s decision was appropriate. If it wasn’t, we will ensure your condition is fully evaluated by a medical practitioner to present the best possible disability claim on your behalf.
