This fatal Georgina accident raises some important questions about the rights of those that were injured and killed as a result of this tragic accident. Compensation may be available to those that are injured in a car accident, as well as to the family of a person who is killed in an Ontario car accident.
Ontario Fatal Car Accident Law
When a loved one is killed as a result of a car accident, the family may be able to advance a wrongful death claim, if the death was caused by the actions or negligence of another person. In fatal car accident cases, the members of the deceased’s family may be able to obtain compensation for the loss of guidance, care and companionship of their loved one, as well as loss of services. There are also death benefits payable by the no-fault automobile insurer.
Rights of Passengers in Ontario Car Accidents
If a passenger of a vehicle is injured in an accident in Ontario, he may be entitled to claim benefits from the no-fault automobile insurer as well as against the insurance companies for the at-fault driver(s). A passenger may be claiming against the insurance for the vehicle in which he was seated and/or the other vehicle involved in the collision. Often, where a passenger is injured, it is necessary to commence claims with the insurers for all of the involved vehicles/drivers.
A Ontario personal injury lawyer will assess the accident, and determine who should be given notice of the claim.
