Yegendorf Rashid has been in the Ottawa area for nearly 20 years. We have built a strong reputation in the Ottawa area and are known mostly through word of mouth from clients and lawyers in the field. Because we receive referrals from outside of Ottawa, we are now expanding into Kingston. Our lawyers can meet with you in the Cataraqui or wider Kingston area, or wherever it is convenient for you.
At Yegendorf Rashid, our personal injury lawyers have experience with many types of injury claims. We have spent years studying the litigation process and navigate well through the modern day litigation system, regardless of which of these two early settlement heritage areas you are located in.
Through referrals, we regularly deal with many cases in the Kingston area, located in Eastern Ontario.
Our lawyers will meet with you in Kingston to provide an initial free consultation. We will listen closely to your account of the accident, review the facts, and inform you of your legal rights. We will also provide a professional opinion about the strength of your case. Once we have a retainer agreement in place, we can begin acting for you. With your consent, we can request your medical records and obtain investigative reports for medical evidence and communicate with your insurance adjuster directly.

At Yegendorf Rashid, 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 Yegendorf Rashid, 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 Yegendorf Rashid, 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 Yegendorf Rashid, 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 Yegendorf Rashid, 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 Yegendorf Rashid, 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 Yegendorf Rashid, 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 Rashid, 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 Yegendorf Rashid, we understand how important it is for all types of property owners to maintain safe grounds to protect customers and other visitors.
