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 under the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule include paraplegia or quadriplegia, amputation or other impairment causing the total and permanent loss of use of both an arm or a leg, total loss of vision in both eyes and brain impairment. The benefits you are entitled to as a result of a catastrophic injury in Ontario are much higher than those from a less severe injury. At Howard Yegendorf & Associates, we understand how catastrophic injuries can alter your life. That’s why we offer expert legal counsel to help you get the compensation you deserve to live a better-quality life, take care of medical expenses and get the support you need.
Brain injuries are a form of physical trauma that disrupts the normal functioning of the brain. Having legal representation will ensure you recover compensation for the pain and suffering, expenses, lost income and the cost of future care or rehabilitation. At Howard Yegendorf & Associates, we bring extensive knowledge and experience in every brain injury case. With more than 50 years of combined experience in personal injury cases, expect to deal with a qualified legal team and medical experts who will contribute to a successful outcome.
Long Term Disability insurance is an insurance policy that pays you a monthly benefit if you become unable to work due to an illness, a long-term medical condition or after suffering an injury in an accident. If an insurer believes that you are not completely disabled, they may deny a claim. You should seek legal advice as soon as your Long Term Disability benefits are denied or terminated to find out what your rights are. At Howard Yegendorf & Associates, we will help protect your rights and interests and get your benefits back or provide you with a rewarding settlement outcome.
A car accident can be a shocking and life-changing experience for you and your family. It is important to understand your legal rights to obtain compensation as you may have two potential claims. The first claim is against your own insurance company for Accident Benefits, regardless of whether or not you are at fault for the accident. The second claim is a tort claim or a lawsuit against the party at fault for causing the accident. At Howard Yegendorf & Associates, we will work with you to initiate claims against your accident benefits insurer and the at-fault party’s insurer, to the full extent of the law.
Motorcycle accidents tend to be more serious than other vehicular accidents and often result in serious injuries. The law in Ontario, which provides Accident Benefits for any person injured in a car accident regardless of whether they are at fault, also applies to those who are injured in a motorcycle accident. If you or someone you care about has suffered a serious motorcycle injury, you should speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. At Howard Yegendorf & Associates, our team of compassionate personal injury lawyers can help you successfully pursue your personal injury claims and obtain the restitution you deserve.
Pedestrian accidents occur in communities throughout Ontario and may result in severe or fatal injuries. The onus is on drivers to take care with regards to pedestrians who are far more vulnerable to injury than anyone in a motor vehicle. Pedestrians who are seriously injured by a car or truck can receive Accident Benefits for their injuries. The process of applying for Accident Benefits can be complicated, time-consuming and particularly stressful if you are injured. At Howard Yegendorf & Associates, we work with our clients to ensure they receive the compensation they need to make as full a recovery as possible and cover the expected future costs associated with their injuries.
Drunk driving accidents are common in Canada. Driving under the influence of alcohol can lead to impaired judgment and a slower response to make split-second adjustments on the road. This slow response time often leads to collisions and severe injuries. Injuries from drunk driving accidents can leave you with lifelong health complications and struggles. If you have been involved in an accident involving a drunk driver, it is important to find a personal injury lawyer who can get you the compensation you deserve. At Howard Yegendorf & Associates, we work with our clients to ensure they receive the compensation they need to make as full a recovery as possible.
Slip and fall accidents have become common in Canada and can sometimes leave the victim with injuries that will follow them for life. When a slip and fall accident occurs on someone else’s property and it was the fault of the property owner, he or she may be held liable for any injuries. If you are a slip and fall accident victim you should reach out to a lawyer as you can often seek compensation for financial losses such as physiotherapy and lost income that is a direct result of the accident. At Howard Yegendorf & Associates, we understand how important it is for all types of property owners to maintain safe grounds to protect customers and other visitors.
