Repairs to The Gardiner and Other Overpasses Come Too Late for Howie, Sacks & Henry Client

Last week, Mayor Tory announced the Toronto’s multi-billion dollar commitment to repairing the Gardiner Expressway from falling chunks of concrete. BridgeFor Jim Howie, personal injury lawyer and founding partner of Howie, Sacks & Henry, this commitment doesn’t go far enough and comes too late for one of his clients.

A few weeks ago Howie’s client was walking under the bridge at Scarlett Road and Dundas when he was struck in the head with a falling piece of concrete. The injury has left his client with a significant head injury, and probable permanent brain damage.

"This is a serious issue for pedestrians and drivers alike,” says Howie. “While I am pleased to see the City’s commitment to work on the Gardiner, the issue is city wide and too little, too late for people like my client. More attention needs to be brought to this issue."

Jim Howie is available for interviews focusing on the dangers and repercussions of falling concrete from bridges and overpasses in the City of Toronto.
