Personal Injury Practice Areas

As personal injury lawyers, our duty is to represent your best interests, to help ensure that you get the care, attention and compensation that you deserve. While you focus on you and your family’s well-being, let us handle the details, such as obtaining police reports, eyewitnesses, details of the accident (such as the speed of the vehicle, insurance status of the other driver),

dealing with your insurance company, advocating for your immediate rights (such as income replacement or medically necessary equipment), as well as helping you organize, document your injuries, and ensuring you receive the appropriate attention to your health needs.

At Howard Yegendorf & Associates, we specialize in obtaining maximum compensation for victims of personal injury incidents, whether by litigation or settlement, in the following areas:

Catastrophic Injuries

A catastrophic injury changes your and your family’s life forever – whether you have sustained a traumatic brain injury, a spinal cord injury, or an amputation, you are now faced with a lifetime of unanticipated challenges. You may need life-long rehabilitation, retraining for employment, as well as extensive and expensive home modifications to accommodate your acquired disabilities. If working at the time of your injury, you may have a fight on your hands with your employer’s insurance company to get the full extent of the benefits you are entitled to as a result of your injury, or you may have a dispute with your Accident Benefits insurer regarding the income replacement benefits that are owed to you under the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule. Howard Yegendorf & Associates has over 30 years of experience fighting for and obtaining compensation for the damages you have sustained.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents are extraordinarily stressful; securing a replacement vehicle, analyzing police reports, fighting your insurance company for funding for appropriate rehabilitation, the trauma of getting back into a vehicle. And on top of these pressures, the amount of paperwork, deadlines for securing compensation, navigating the statutory and regulatory framework – these are not pressures you need to worry about during this stressful time. At Howard Yegendorf & Associates we can help you handle everything involved in dealing with a motor vehicle accident, pursuing both accident benefits and insurance compensation, so you can focus on healing.

Long-Term Disability Insurance Claims

It is so important to understand that no one wants to be sick. But you have suffered the unimaginable, be it a physical injury, a devastating personal trauma, or time has caught up to you and a chronic and progressive illness is taking away your good health, and you can no longer continue to work. If you could, you most definitely would. But instead of respecting your time served, your loyalty and commitment to your workplace, you are shut out and denied access to long-term disability benefits. We believe in you, and we can help you with your long-term disability claim so that you can focus on your financial well-being. Howard Yegendorf & Associates has over 50 years of combined experience representing employees who have been denied the long-term disability benefits that they deserve.

Insurance Disputes

You have paid dutifully into your insurance plan for years; but now that you need coverage, you are suddenly being shut out. It is an all too common story, the stress, and bewilderment at being denied the coverage you are entitled to, a complete shock. At Howard Yegendorf & Associates we have the years of experience dealing with insurance companies and have years of experience analyzing insurance policies and keeping up-to-date on recent court decisions regarding the same. We have the hard-earned reputation that makes insurance companies sit-up and take notice, ensuring that you get the full and complete coverage that you have been wrongfully denied.

Slips & Falls

Slip and fall injuries occur when you suffer an injury as a result of a fall on another person’s property, such as a business owner, neighbour, or government entity, who due to their negligence created hazardous conditions, such as icy sidewalks, improper grading of a staircase, low lighting, gaps in a walkway, or not adhering to municipal or provincial safety and building codes. At Howard Yegendorf & Associates, we have represented our clients against private and commercial property owners, government-owned property, and other insured owners at all levels of court, successfully obtaining appropriate compensation for our clients.

Product Liability

Your phone just caught on fire, your child’s fingers are cut-off by an unsafe stroller mechanism – manufacturers, distributors, and retailers each have an obligation to ensure that the products they produce, distribute and sell meet health, safety, and industry standards. When devastating injuries result from defective goods, the injured have rights – if you have been injured as a result of an unsafe product, call Howard Yegendorf & Associates and we can review your claim to determine the best route for you to receive compensation and to protect other innocent purchasers from future harm.

Howard is an excellent, meticulous lawyer. Perhaps even more important though, is that he is a compassionate human being. A very good listener and an even better questioner!

I have known Howard for nearly 20 years. During that time he not only helped me with sound, expert advice pertaining to a "Ponzi scheme" that devastated my family, he has helped countless others. He is dedicated to the law and a true expert in his field. I know first hand that he has changed the destiny of many of his clients , allowing them to move forward with dignity after suffering catastrophic events. He cares deeply , has dogged determination, vast experience and his team of lawyers and support staff are second to none. I would highly recommend Howard and his team.

I've known Howard Yegendorf for well over a decade and consider him to be one of the most capable, professional, knowledgeable and trustworthy people I've met in my business career. His attention, compassion and skills were reinforced to me when he helped a very close family member with a potentially serious legal situation. Without hesitation I will continue to recommend Howard and his firm to anyone who wants exceptional legal representation.
