Q&A

 

How does Howard Yegendorf & Associates charge for its personal injury law services?

At Howard Yegendorf & Associates, we take cases on a contingency basis. That simply means that we defer payment of our fees until a settlement occurs, or at the end of a trial. Until that time, we do not bill you. Our fee to you will be a percentage of the amount you settle for or the amount you win at trial. We do, however, ask that you provide us with a nominal amount to begin work on the case and cover our initial disbursements. Our initial consultation is always free.

Please speak to us further about the percentage that we will charge you and the amount we will require for disbursements.

I was involved in a car accident. What is the first thing I should do?

In Ontario, motor vehicle accident claims are highly regulated, your claim for compensation will be dictated by the provisions of the Insurance Act of Ontario.

The first thing you should do is go to your doctor, and continue to see your doctor as long as you remain injured. Within 120 days of your accident, you must notify the driver and owner of the vehicle that hit you, in writing, and advise them that you have been injured and that you intend to pursue a claim for compensation against them. You can obtain their names and address from the police report.

Our Initial Injury Consultation is Free. Please tell us why you would like to speak to a personal injury law firm.

Mr. Yegendorf is very different than the stereotypical lawyer. He is sympathetic to his clients and eager to help. Probably one of the most ethical, professional and experienced lawyers out there. Highly recommended!

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.

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'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.
