Speak To an Accident Benefits Lawyer in Toronto about Your Claim
If you are an Ontario resident injured in a car accident, you are entitled to “no-fault benefits,” regardless of who is at fault for the accident. If you are injured and are not at fault for the accident, you may also pursue a personal injury lawsuit for additional compensation.
What Are Accident Benefits?
Accident benefits or “no-fault benefits” are statutory obligations from insurers to provide compensation to all of those injured in a car accident. These benefits may include: compensation for lost wages, medical treatment, rehabilitation services, and/or attendant care. In some cases these benefits are extended to other expenses incurred as a result of the accident, such as childcare, housekeeping or home maintenance.
Accident benefits are payable by your own auto insurance company, regardless of whether you were driving at the time of the accident. If you are a passenger, pedestrian or cyclist without auto insurance, you may have to file the claim under the policy of the vehicle owner or operator or under the policy of the at-fault driver.
When Should You Seek Assistance With Your Accident Benefits Claim?
You should seek assistance with your accident benefits claim as soon as possible after the accident as there are multiple detailed application forms and obligations to complete. There are time sensitive constraints you need to follow in order to preserve your legal rights for benefits. An insurance adjuster will send you the initial forms once the accident has been reported. If you are injured, it is advised you complete these forms as soon as possible to avoid missing important deadlines for your claim. In addition, enlisting the help of an accident claim lawyer in Toronto and surrounding areas can aid with you receiving the compensation you deserve.
