Motor Vehicle Accidents Lawyer Barrie
Motor vehicle accidents of varying severity are a common occurrence on Ontario roads and result in personal injuries that can range from whiplash, soft tissue damage, fractures, and psychological trauma to more serious injuries such as traumatic brain injuries and injuries of the spinal cord.
Because often times some of these injuries do not immediately become apparent, accident victims may think they are fine but end up suffering from aches and pains that surface days after the accident. Lengthy and often costly rehabilitation is typically required by the vast majority of accident victims and when combined with lost wages as well as other related expenses, mounting bills and outstanding invoices can quickly become unmanageable.
Ontario victims of motor vehicle accidents are entitled to what is known as “Accident Benefits.” These are various entitlements such as: income replacement benefits, attendant care benefits, medical rehabilitation benefits, and the non-earner benefit. If the victim’s policy has additional coverage, he or she may become eligible for additional benefits such as care-giving and housekeeping benefits. Injuries that are deemed catastrophic significantly increase the amount of benefits and coverage for the injured victim. What seems like sufficient coverage for Ontario car accident victims on paper is far from reality. Auto insurance companies regularly deny or limit access to these benefits, leaving accident victims without sufficient coverage.
If you are deemed not to be at fault for the collision, you are entitled to additional compensation through a Tort Claim. Damages such as pain and suffering, costs of future medical care, loss of income and competitive advantage, and out-of-pocket expenses are some of the things that victims can claim compensation for.
