Motor Vehicle Accident Insurance
In Ontario, if you have suffered an injury in a motor vehicle accident, you should immediately apply for accident benefits through your own insurer. You may qualify for weekly income replacement benefits and may receive funding for rehabilitation services such as physiotherapy, massage therapy and chiropractic treatment from your accident benefits insurer.
You may also have a claim for pain and suffering against the driver of the vehicle that is to blame in the motor vehicle accident if you suffer a permanent and serious impairment. You may be deemed to have suffered a permanent and serious impairment if your injuries:
- affect your ability to be employed
- substantially interfere with your ability to continue in your pre-accident employment
- significantly interfere with your activities of daily living.
Additionally, you may also be able to claim for income loss and claim for family members under the Family Law Act and other incurred expenses.
If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, it is not advisable to deal with the insurance companies yourself as often they will deny your claim or offer compensation which is not fair and reasonable based on your injuries. Due to the complexity of insurance laws governing motor vehicle accidents, it is important to consult and retain a personal injury lawyer who is experienced in dealing with motor vehicle accidents.
