Motor Vehicle Accident Claims
Automobile accidents are commonplace. Therefore, it is imperative that you are appropriately compensated if entitled to payment through an insurance provider. Regardless of your location within the province of Ontario, it is important to note that a complex and detailed set of insurance laws are in place, all of which apply to an insurance claim made after an automobile accident. Under these laws, there are at least two separate methods of seeking compensation for anyone involved in a motor vehicle accident.
The first source is in the form of Statutory Accident Benefits, governed by the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule, a regulation made under the Insurance Act of Ontario.
Statutory Accident Benefits could hypothetically include:
- Supplementary medical and rehabilitation assistance
- Weekly income reimbursements
- Attendant care benefits
- Funeral and death-related compensation
- Non-earner assistance
Alternatively, the second method that a person in an automobile accident can utilize when seeking compensation is to sue the party or parties responsible for the accident in question. If you have been injured as a result of a car accident, you could very well be entitled to compensation for various losses.
Through lawsuits or settlement with the liable party or parties, financial restitution for accident victims could include:
- Compensation for pain and suffering
- Reparations for disruption of livelihood and loss of amenities
- Reimbursement for loss of income
- Coverage of future care-related costs
- Reimbursement for other out-of-pocket expenses
