Car Accidents / Accident Benefits

Cars seem to be an ever present part of our lives. There are good drivers and there are bad drivers and sometimes stuff just happens.

When a car accident occurs the effect can be very dramatic and have very serious consequences. Accident victims are all too often placed in a vulnerable position. Not only are they injured, sometimes they are no longer able to work or take care of themselves or their families. The last thing an accident victim wants to do is deal with insurance companies.

A compassionate lawyer is not only a welcome comfort, but essential to guide an accident victim through the maze of motor vehicle legislation. Our qualified team will be there every step of the way to provide sound guidance and strong advocacy.

Accident Benefits Claim

Even if the accident is your fault, you have access to the Ontario Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (SABS). In order to obtain accident benefits, an application must be made to the insurer who is responsible for funding these benefits. If your insurer denies any benefits, you have the right to dispute these denials before the Safety Licensing Appeals and Standards Tribunal (SLATSO).

If you are denied accident benefits, we can help. Our experienced and detail oriented team is knowledgeable and compassionate. We will deal with all the forms, paperwork and details involved with advancing and defending your claim for accident benefits so you can focus your energies on getting better.

TORT (Pain & Suffering) Claim

If the car accident is not your fault you may also be entitled to sue the at fault party for your pain and suffering and lost income. You have 2 years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit with the court.

If you or someone you love was involved in a car accident it is important to know your rights and we can help. I am more than pleased to discuss any concern you may have about your car accident claim. Your initial consultation is free. There are no upfront legal fees and you don’t pay our legal fees unless we get you money.
