Personal Injury Banner - Belleville

Servicing Belleville and all of Ontario

If you’re used to big city traffic jams and commute times measured in hours instead of minutes, driving in Belleville might seem like a dream come true. Pretty much anywhere you need to go in this city is a 10 to 15-minute drive away – at most, and congestion that leads to a one or two-minute slow down during a drive to or from work is considered newsworthy on local radio.

Putting An End to Your Collision Nightmare

But Belleville residents know that dream-like drives can turn into nightmares if you’re in an accident. Whether it’s been rear-ended while waiting to make a left-hand turn on North Front Street or being side-swiped when trying to cut across from the culverts along Dundas Street East, there are plenty of places in the city where accidents and near misses are known to occur. Locals and visitors alike also believe that the stretch of the 401 between Kingston and Trenton is one of the most treacherous places for highway accidents. One memorable 50-vehicle pile-up in 2015 miraculously resulted in no major injuries; yet people involved in many other incidents are not as fortunate. Belleville’s Highway 62 and Highway 37 are also a gateway to Prince Edward County to the South and Foxboro, Madoc, Bancroft to the north. With many tourists taking this road to get to their destinations, the twists and turns of the road can pose some hazard.

A serious motor vehicle accident can change your life in an instant. If you experience a traumatic brain or spinal cord injury, or broken bones, you could be facing a permanent disability, chronic pain, or an extended recovery period that requires significant medical intervention and expenses.

Ensuring Your Future Care Costs Are Sufficient

Insurance companies may encourage you to settle quickly following an accident. While this might seem appealing to help put the incident behind you, they may offer you much less than fair compensation for the extent of your injuries and your anticipated future needs. By consulting experienced, trusted and compassionate personal injury lawyers at Howie, Sacks and Henry, you can be sure you’ll have a skilled team on your side to ensure you get the compensation and support you deserve.

You’ll never have to worry about travelling great distances to see us. Our lawyers are happy to meet you in your home or at our local Belleville consultation office at your convenience.
