AREAS OF PRACTICE - MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS
Car accidents can result in serious injuries such as whiplash, fractures, chronic pain, or psychological problems and can sometimes be fatal. Thousands of Canadians are injured on Ontario roads every year, which makes motor vehicle accidents a leading cause of personal injury in the province.
Car accident victims are entitled to accident benefits, which are made up of medical rehabilitation, income replacement, and attendant care. If bought, optional coverage can make benefits such as caregiving and housekeeping available as well. In the event of catastrophic injuries, the amount of coverage can increase by a large margin. Even though there are benefits available to injury victims, the insurance companies often find ways to pay as little as possible.
If the accident was not your fault, you may be entitled to Tort compensation, which is seeking damages such as pain and suffering, loss of competitive advantage, and others from the at-fault party. The changes to Ontario laws have further complicated the claims process even further, which makes having an experienced legal team on your side more important now than ever.
Insurance company representatives are tasked with keeping costs to a minimum and reducing the amounts of claim payouts to accident victims. Denying benefits, delaying payments, and prolonging the overall process are unfortunately all too common, as well as trying to get the injured claimant to accept a significantly smaller settlement amount than they are really entitled to. Having an experienced personal injury lawyer on your side can help level the playing field and ensure that your rights are protected.
Regardless if the accident was your fault, or if the other driver fled the scene or was uninsured, if you were injured in a motor vehicle accident, you deserve compensation for your injuries.
