Following a serious car accident in Ontario, those that are injured and their families will be faced with immediate concerns and challenges. In addition to the health care and recovery, the injured persons will also be required to provide information and make decisions about insurance coverage and available benefits. The circumstances can be, and often are, overwhelming for those involved. The decisions that are made immediately following an accident can have major consequences with respect to the compensation that may be available.
In Ontario, car accident victims may be able to receive compensation from more than one insurance company. Ontario car accidents provide for no-fault or statutory accident benefits, as well as tort claims against the at-fault driver. The availability of these claims and the amount of compensation will depend upon the facts and circumstances of the accident and resulting injuries.
With regard to those that were injured as a passenger in a motor vehicle that was involved in a car accident in Ontario, they may be able to claim for your losses. Passengers that are injured in Ontario car accidents are almost always covered by insurance. Although it can feel like an uncomfortable situation when the person responsible for your injuries is a relative or friend, you should keep in mind that the claims will be for insurance proceeds. Auto insurance is available for situations where passengers are injured - it is not a claim against that driver's personal assets.
