Motor Vehicle Accident Claims

If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident in Ottawa, Kingston, or other location in Ontario, there are a complicated series of insurance laws that will apply to your claim. Under these laws there are at least two separate sources for potential compensation. The first is Statutory Accident Benefits which may include:

 

  • Weekly income replacement benefits
  • Supplementary medical and rehabilitation benefits
  • Attendant care benefits
  • Funeral and death benefits
  • Non-earner benefits
The second source from which to recover compensation is to sue the party or parties responsible for the accident. As the injured person, you may be entitled to recover compensation for various losses, including:

 

  • Pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and loss of amenities
  • Loss of income
  • Future care expenses
  • Other out of pocket expenses
There are a number of factors which may affect your ability to make a claim under these categories. Please contact Ontario Injury Lawyers for additional information. In addition, your family members may also be entitled to make a claim for the losses they have experienced as a result of your injuries. It is important to consult a lawyer immediately to get information about your particular situation.
