If you were recently injured as a result of a car accident in Ontario, you may have many questions about your rights. Some common questions are: Can I sue for compensation following a Ontario car accident? How much compensation can I get following a car accident? Which insurance company is responsible for paying for my financial losses?
The answer to these questions will depend upon the specific facts and circumstances of your particular car accident. For that reason, it is important to speak with a Ontario car accident lawyer about your rights following a car accident injury. Ontario car accident claims are complex due to the insurance regulations and statutes governing your right to compensation.
In this post, we will attempt to provide an overview of the claims process following an Ontario car accident injury. Following an injury in Ontario car accident, motorcycle accident or truck accident, you may be able to obtain compensation from your insurance provider, as well as the insurance company for the other involved vehicle. These two claims are known as Accident Benefits and Tort:
The Accident Benefits claim is paid from your own auto insurance policy or from the insurance for another vehicle involved in the accident. The Tort Claim is made against the at-fault driver for compensation, including damages that are not available through accident benefits, such as pain and suffering.
The type and amount of compensation available from the accident benefits and tort claims will depend upon the nature of the car accident and the severity of your injuries. A car accident lawyer will need to review the police reports and medical information in order to assess the potential value of your claim. Among other things, you may be entitled to compensation for loss of income, healthcare expenses, and housekeeping and home maintenance costs.
