Traffic accidents can result in serious injuries and losses. These injuries can be caused as a driver, passenger, or cyclist or pedestrian. Common injuries from such accidents include road burns, sprains and lacerations, severed limbs, spinal cord injuries, head trauma, broken bones, chronic pain, and psychological injuries.
The healing process can take somewhat longer, exacerbating the potential problem of totaled bills and lost income. The road to recovery can also affect family members and other members of the community, such as friends, co-workers, and treatment providers.
When someone is injured due to the negligence of another, the loss is claimed and often paid by the insurance company of the at-fault party. This tort claim can cover damages in a variety of areas, including pain and suffering, loss of competitive advantage, loss of income, changes in family relationships, future care needs, and various out-of-pocket expenses.
Under Ontario law, a driver, passenger, or pedestrian who is injured as a result of a motor vehicle accident is entitled to claim no-fault benefits.
The term “no-fault” means that, under their policy, your car insurance company will help pay for your repair costs. These accident benefits include payment of reasonably necessary medical and rehabilitation expenses incurred as a result of the accident, income replacement, and other possible weekly benefits and support. These accident benefits are available even if only one vehicle is involved in the accident.
To determine if you qualify for these benefits, it is important to apply with your own auto insurance company immediately. It usually takes up to 30 days to submit all the correct documentation to your insurance company. We recommend that you contact an attorney before beginning this process to ensure that your legal rights are protected.
We can help you file a claim with your insurance company right from the start. Even if the accident was your fault, we have the expertise to maximize your benefits.
Possible Benefit Claims
There are many benefits available to victims of car accidents. Some of the most common are
Income Replacement Benefits: If you become unemployed, you may be eligible to receive 70% of your gross income up to your policy limits. These benefits begin one week after the accident. If you are unable to work after the expiration date, you can review and renew your coverage if you are unable to work due to your injury.
Medical Benefits: Depending on the extent of the injuries sustained, the insurance company may have to pay different amounts. Coverage ranges from $3,500 to $1,000,000 for reasonable and necessary expenses to reduce or eliminate the consequences of disability resulting from your disability or to facilitate your reintegration into your family, the rest of society, and the labor market. Your medical team and the characteristics of your injury are critical to your recovery.
