Each year, more than 60,000 people living in the province of Ontario are injured in a car accident (Ontario Ministry of Transportation statistics). This frightening and potentially devastating experience comes with both short- and long-term consequences. Those affected struggle not only with their immediate injuries, but also with the long-term impact of those injuries. These injuries can range in severity from broken bones and torn ligaments, to head and traumatic brain injuries, whiplash, long-term spinal and back injuries, and even death.
If you were injured in a car accident, you have two potential sources of claims. One option is to make a claim against an at-fault driver. This is also known as a tort claim. A second possibility is to collect vehicle accident benefits. Because Ontario’s no-fault insurance regulations and tort system (at-fault) are very complex. Even something as simple as going into too much detail when you contact your insurance company has the potential to negatively impact your rights. It makes good sense to work with experienced personal injury lawyers like Richard and Alden and their team. They have the expertise to help you determine the most effective course of action and successfully represent you both in, and out, of court.
A serious injury can change a person’s life forever. Whether it’s financial compensation, damages for pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, home and vehicle modifications or future care, as personal injury lawyers, we can help you obtain the restitution you’re entitled to.
