MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS
Injuries caused by motor vehicle accidents remain as one of the leading types of personal injury claims in the province. The injuries sustained in car accidents can range from soft-tissue and whiplash type injuries to more severe and sometimes permanent such as spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries. Due to the nature of the claim which is bound by strict rules and limitations, it is important to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer in order to protect your rights.
In Stoney Creek, Stratford and Brockville injured occupants of motor vehicles involved in an accident are potentially entitled to file two types of claims the first of which is an Accident Benefits claim which is supposed to cover medical rehabilitation, lost wages, attendant care and other applicable benefits. The second claim is called a Tort claim which is a lawsuit against the at-fault party, with damages for things such as pain and suffering, loss of income, costs of future medical care and others are sought. Unfortunately, it is common for insurance companies to limit claimant’s access to certain benefits and in some cases deny them altogether.
It is important to speak to a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible if you were involved in a car accident. The law limits your time to act and you may be entitled to compensation even if you are at fault. The No-Fault Accident Benefits allow even for at-fault parties to receive certain benefits as well as a settlement. Victims of car accidents involving stolen vehicles or uninsured drivers have legal recourse as well. These and other factors make seeking legal advice important as it can make the difference between getting the treatment and compensation that you deserve and having to deal with the circumstances on your own.
