Motor Vehicle Accidents

At Howie, Sacks & Henry, we know serious injuries can change a person’s life forever. If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident involving a car, truck, motorcycle, all-terrain vehicle, boat or public transportation, it is important to get legal advice from an experienced personal injury lawyer.

There are perhaps 1,000 law firms in the Toronto area willing to handle your case, but just a handful have the trial experience needed to set them apart. At Howie, Sacks & Henry, we have successfully represented thousands of accident victims in and out of the courtroom. 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.

Motor Vehicle Laws are Complex

Motor Vehicle Laws in Ontario are more complex than you may think.  Navigating Ontario’s no-fault insurance regulations and tort system is getting more and more difficult and mistakes or uninformed decisions can lead to substantial financial loss to you and your family.

  • Accident Benefit Claim

    Regardless of who was at fault, anyone who has been injured in a motor vehicle accident can complete a claim. However, you should seek advice from an experienced personal injury lawyer who can assess your situation and help you maximize the benefits you are entitled to.

  • A Tort Claim is otherwise known as a lawsuit, and the process where you seek to reclaim economic losses as a result of your injury and compensation for your pain and suffering.

Our firm has a network of medical, rehabilitation, present and future care specialists, and specialized accountants to calculate your present and future needs, so we can fully evaluate your claim(s).

Types of Motor Vehicles

Our team of highly-trained motor vehicle accident injury lawyers take a genuine interest in our clients. We are dedicated to helping them obtain the financial compensation they require following devastating motor vehicle accident injuries involving:

  • Cars

    The most common motor vehicle accident affects people from all walks of life. If you have been injured in a car accident in the Greater Toronto Area or southwestern Ontario, you may be considering dealing directly with your car insurer or hiring a lawyer who lacks experience in motor vehicle accident litigation, but those decisions could  lead to substantial financial loss to you and your family.

  • Trucks

    In Southwestern Ontario, highways 7, 400, 404, 407, 409, 410 and 427 are an extensive and busy hub for trucks passing through the region. We have successfully litigated almost all kinds of truck accident cases including the negligent operation of a truck, driver fatigue, and poor truck maintenance including overloading.

  • Motorcycles

    Even when bikers wear helmets and other protective gear, the exposed nature of motorcycles often means drivers can sustain head injuries, traumatic brain injuries and others injuries that need long-term care. We work with life care planning specialists, medical experts and other practitioners to maximize the benefits available to you.

  • All-terrain vehicles

    The soaring popularity of ATVs in Ontario means the number of accidents is also on the rise, primarily because of unskilled ATV drivers, rollovers and insufficient safety equipment. These complex cases require a high level of skill to show recklessness or deliberate endangerment on the part of the driver who caused the accident and we have handled hundreds of these cases for our clients.

  • Boats

    Offering popular sporting activities in the lakes and rivers that make Ontario such a beautiful place to live, boating also brings the threat of serious and often fatal injuries for boaters and swimmers alike. We understand the personal, medical and legal difficulties that arise when others’ carelessness leads to preventable boating accidents and injuries, and will provide the best possible legal representation for you.

  • Public transportation

    The Toronto Transit Commission, GO Transit, VIA Rail and other public transportation entities are subject to unique laws and procedures that can be difficult to navigate. We are deeply familiar with the legal challenges of public transit accident cases and are well-prepared to take on even the most complex injury cases resulting from them.
