If you were injured as a passenger in a motor vehicle that was involved in a car accident in Ontario, you may be able to claim for your injuries and losses. As a passenger, it does not matter whether the accident was caused by the driver of the vehicle you were a passenger, or if another driver hit the vehicle you were riding in. In either scenario, the accident was not your fault. In most cases, the injured passenger will be able to make a claim for compensation.
When a passenger is injured in an Ontario car accident, the claim for injuries and losses are almost always covered by insurance proceeds. Although it can feel like an uncomfortable situation when the person responsible for your injuries is a relative or friend that was driving, you should keep in mind that your claims will be for insurance proceeds. The auto insurance proceeds are available for situations where passengers are injured.
We regularly represent passengers that have sustained serious injuries as a result of car accidents, truck accidents and motorcycle accidents. If you or a loved one has been injured while a passenger in a motor vehicle, call me and I will answer your questions. Our initial consultation is complimentary, and confidential.
