If you are injured as a result of a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident or other auto accident in Ontario (even if you were a pedestrian or cyclist), you may be entitled to compensation from two sources:
Accident Benefits from your own automobile insurance policy or from the insurance for another vehicle involved in the accident.
Tort Claim against the at-fault driver for compensation, including damages that are not available through accident benefits, such as pain and suffering.
Ontario has a no-fault insurance system for automobile and motorcycle accidents, which allows you to obtain accident benefits irrespective of fault. In addition, an injured person can also obtain compensation from the at-fault driver's insurance company.
