When a resident of Ontario is injured in a Florida accident, there can be additional stress associated with obtaining and paying for medical care. Additionally, you may have questions about which insurance will cover your losses, your pain and suffering, and medical expenses. Insurance laws differ from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. There are different laws for car accidents in Ontario and those that occur in Florida. Nonetheless, if you have a valid Ontario auto insurance policy, you may be able to claim for some of your losses against your Ontario policy. The applicable insurance for your injuries and losses will depend on the nature of the accident, the injuries, and the coverage available for the driver and vehicle that caused the accident.
It is important to know your rights before discussing your claim with insurance adjusters. Do not make uninformed decisions that can have major consequences on your right to recover for your losses.
