Canadians traveling to the United States for work or leisure have a right to be protected in the event of a car accident, even if the driver who caused the accident does not have insurance. This protection is provided through a type of insurance coverage known as underinsured motorist coverage, which is available to Canadians through their Ontario, Canada insurance policy.
If you are a Canadian who has been injured in a car accident in Florida, you may be entitled to make a claim under your Ontario insurance policy for underinsured motorist coverage. This coverage is designed to protect you in the event that the driver who caused the accident does not have insurance or does not have enough insurance to cover the damages you have suffered.
In order to make a successful claim for underinsured motorist coverage, it is important to understand the legal process and to work with an experienced personal injury attorney who has a deep understanding of both Canadian and American law. An experienced cross-border injury lawyer can help you navigate the complex and often confusing legal system, negotiate with insurance companies, and represent you in court if necessary.
Underinsured motorist coverage is an important resource for Canadians who are injured in car accidents in the United States, as it provides compensation for damages such as medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. With the help of a qualified personal injury lawyer, you can ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
In addition to underinsured motorist coverage, there may be other types of insurance coverage available to Canadians who are injured in car accidents in the United States.
