Injured in a Car Accident?
Car accidents are the most common cause of serious personal injury in Ontario. The legislation governing motor vehicle claims is complex and the Ontario government has changed the legislation several times in the last 15 to 20 years. However, if you are injured in a car accident, you have two basic ways to seek recovery: by claiming “statutory accident benefits” and by suing the person or persons at fault for the car accident.
“Statutory accident benefits” are also sometimes called “no-fault” benefits. As the name suggests, you can claim these benefits even if you are completely at fault for a car accident.
