Certified Specialist in Civil Litigation

“One Accident Can Change Your Life”
Rob has been actively practicing law in the personal injury field for thirty-one years. He started Littlejohn Barristers in 1996 to genuinely assist injured plaintiffs who could not afford to financially pursue their lawsuits. He takes pride in the precedent-setting decisions he has obtained throughout the years.
Rob has extensive Trial experience. In 2014, he was awarded the Certified Litigation Specialist designation for his distinguished service. He is one of the few lawyers in the County of Simcoe to merit this award.
Recently, our law firm obtained a chronic pain award for a 55-year-old Honda employee at $3.4 million. In addition to this settlement, our client will continue to receive benefits to age 65. In 2019 alone, we handled several claims that resulted in seven-figure awards.
In 2020, we again had several seven figure personal injury awards. We also recovered every penny of an $825,000 fire loss claim for a client despite five alleged material misrepresentations. If two or more of these misrepresentations were proven, our client would have received nothing.
By March 12th of this year, we have already paid out three seven figure personal injury awards.
Despite COVID-19 and the closure of this Province’s Courtrooms, we again added precedent-setting case results to our accomplishments. It is our belief that making new law assists every disabled person whether we represent them or not.
There are very few active lawyers in this community that have obtained seven figure personal injury jury verdicts: no other lawyer in this community has obtained this for the type of personal injuries I have.
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. Over the years, he has supported the Royal Victoria Regional Health Center, Joe Carter’s Children Aid Foundation event, Bobby Orr’s Celebrity Golf Classic and the Lend-A-Hand Tournament.

Recent and Key Reported Decisions
Note: Past results are not necessarily indicative of future results and that the amount recovered and other litigation outcomes will vary according to the facts in each individual case.
Through the years, certain insurers have attempted to take advantage of personal injury victims. In court, Rob has fought for the rights of his clients and obtained positive results in a number of different circumstances, including the following:
.Your insurer’s refusal to pay income replacement benefits (IRBs) beyond an alleged two year limitation period: P.V. and Economical Insurance (2020) ONLAT 19-000069/AABS. This is the first IRB decision that gives you the right to sue for IRBs well after a “hard limitation” period has supposedly expired. In this case, P.V. was judicially allowed to pursue his IRB claim four and a half years following his motor vehicle collision. This IRB decision has reversed five previous Court of Appeal decisions, principal among them, Sietzma and Bonnacorso.
