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 cartruckmotorcycle, all-terrain vehicle, boat or public transportation, it is important to get legal advice from an experienced personal injury lawyer.

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 for nothing less than the compensation our clients are entitled to.

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.

Tort Claim

A Tort Claim is otherwise known as a lawsuit, and the process where you seek to claim financial losses caused by your injury and compensation for your pain and suffering.

Our firm has access to a network of medical and rehabilitation specialists, present and future care evaluators and specialized accountants to allow us to fully evaluate your needs over the remainder of your life.

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 that could lead to substantial financial loss to you and your family.


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.


Even though motorcycle riders wear helmets and other protective gear, they are are still so vulnerable to catastrophic injuries such as traumatic brain injuries, other head injuries and severe orthopedic injuries and spinal cord injuries. We work closely with medical and rehabilitation specialists and life care planners to ensure your receive the accident benefits and compensation you need.

All-terrain vehicles

The 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.


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.

Snowbird Accidents Happen

Over three million Canadians migrate to Florida every year. Unfortunately, despite our best laid plans, these visits are not always marked by sunshine and sandy beaches. Accidents happen – car accidents are particularly prevalent – and snowbirds are often left to navigate the often complicated legal claim that comes with an out-of-country injury. If you or your loved one has suffered an accident that occurred while “snowbirding” in the U.S. this year, you may be eligible for compensation for your injuries.
