We Are Personal Injury Lawyers in Ottawa, Ontario
Under Ontario law, anybody injured in a motor vehicle collision is entitled to accident benefits to cover medical and rehabilitation expenses. Benefits will, in some cases, include non-earner benefits, income replacement benefits, and many other available benefits depending on the type and extent of their injuries.
Our team of accident lawyers is highly skilled and experienced in car accident claims and guarantees the compensation you deserve.
Eligibility for Accident Benefits Claims
You are eligible for accident benefits claims if you are involved in a collision with any vehicle that falls within the definition of a motor vehicle. Vehicles can refer to cars, trucks, motorcycles, ATVs, and snowmobiles.
The benefits are available for all people hurt in the collision, including drivers, passengers, cyclists, pedestrians, and any other person. It doesn’t matter if all these people have auto insurance or not.
Accident Benefits in Ontario
Ontario’s accident benefits program is one of the most complex programs in the world. There have been several changes to the law over the last 20 years. Some of the changes have been removing some benefits that were available more than five years ago.
However, everything was not taken away. Optional benefits were included to allow people to buy back the benefits that were taken away. Some insurance companies and insurance brokers did not inform their clients about the availability of these benefits.
You may have a claim against your insurance company or broker for failing to advise you about the available optional benefits properly. We always consider this factor when evaluating your case.
