“Help Others Now”

Rob has been actively practicing law in the personal injury field for twenty-six years. He started Littlejohn Barristers in 1996 to genuinely assist injured plaintiffs who could not afford to pursue their lawsuits.

We believe in the slogan: “Help others now.” This responsibility remains in place to this day and is of primary concern to all of our lawyers.

Rob has extensive trial experience. In 2014, he was awarded the Certified Litigation Specialist designation for this distinguished service. He is one of the few lawyers in the County of Simcoe to merit this award.

Through the years, some insurers have abused three key issues in personal injury law. In court, Rob has been the first to obtain results that have changed the approach of these insurers in these areas:

  1. Your insurer’s outright refusal to pay your genuine soft-tissue injury claims before Trial, even though it was obvious that they should do so: See Maxwell v. Luck here and here . In this Appellate decision, our client personally received an additional $50,000 award as a result of the harsh conduct of her insurer. This was the first award of this kind in this province.
  2. Your insurer’s arbitrary reduction of the coverage you paid for from $1,000,000 to $200,000 to limit what you should lawfully be paid for your injuries: See Yetman v. Marzec here and here . In this case, our client was awarded more than $1,000,000 by the jury.
  3. Your insurer takes steps to strike out your claim when you did not know you had to give written notice to the city within 10 days and while you were hurt: See Blair v. City of Barrie . This is the first case where the 10 day notice period was successfully challenged and extended under the Limitations Act.

For the past sixteen years, Rob has annually selected one to three Simcoe County residents who have suffered misfortune. He has provided financial assistance to these residents in a manner intended to help them start again. Rob has also assisted many charities, too many to name. Recently, he has supported Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre, Joe Carter’s Children Aid Foundation event, Bobby Orr’s Celebrity Golf Classic and the Lend-A-Hand Tournament.
