While there is no requirement to have a lawyer assist you with your injury claims following a car accident in Ontario, it is a good idea to get some advice. Often, injury victims that complete the forms on their own and deal with the insurance company directly end up receiving far fewer benefits. With that said, there is certainly no harm in meeting with a lawyer to learn more about the process, and the benefits that are available to you so that you can make an informed decision before deciding if you want to handle the insurance claim on your own. Most people injured in car accidents in Ontario will ultimately benefit from the advice and guidance of an experienced Ontario car accident lawyer. Car accident injury claims in Ontario are complex, with many rules and timelines that must be satisfied in order to receive compensation. There are frequent changes to the law regarding car accident compensation.
Our Ontario car accident lawyers offer free consultations to car accident injury victims. We can meet with you to review the circumstances of your case and will even assist you in completing your accident benefits forms for free. There is no obligation beyond the initial consultation, and anything you share will remain confidential.
