Respected Car Accident Lawyers in Toronto
Car accidents happen every day, and most of the time, nobody is seriously injured. But a major motor vehicle accident can alter your life in an instant. Recovery from your injuries can be long and challenging, and may keep you from returning to work or doing the everyday activities you used to enjoy.
Most significantly, for many car accident victims, the financial impact can take its toll. You might need medical care not covered by OHIP, such as physiotherapy, massage treatment, or prescription medication. You may also have to hire someone to help with housework or child care while you are injured.
Getting Fair Compensation
Time off work and added expenses can seriously strain your finances after a car accident, and the paperwork involved in dealing with your insurance company can quickly become overwhelming. It may seem impossible to figure out what you deserve, but you may be entitled to compensation for a variety of things, including:
- Lost income
- Housekeeping, personal care and child care assistance
- Past and future medical care and treatment
- Out-of-pocket expenses
- Difficulty returning to the workforce
- Pain and suffering
The rules governing motor vehicle accidents in Ontario are very complicated, technical, and constantly changing. As a result, it’s highly advisable to seek advice from a personal injury lawyer who has extensive experience dealing with the insurance industry and exclusively handles car accident claims on behalf of injured victims.
Your dedicated personal injury lawyer from Jasmine Daya & Co. will begin by reviewing the two ways you can be compensated: through no-fault Accident Benefits insurance, or through a civil lawsuit against the driver who was at fault for the accident.
Through consultation with you, we will determine the best way to proceed to ensure that you get fair compensation for your injuries.
Bringing a Civil Lawsuit – Where Someone Else is At Fault
If someone else was at fault, or negligent, you may be able to bring a claim in civil court against an at-fault driver to recover compensation for your injuries.
Having an experienced litigation team on your side can be your key advantage in a car accident claim. The lawyers at Jasmine Daya & Co. have a thorough understanding of trial practice, and the intricacies of motor vehicle accident claims. Our personal injury team has decades of experience litigating cases successfully, and have won millions of dollars of compensation on behalf of our clients.
Accident Benefits Insurance
In addition to bringing a claim against any at-fault party, anyone injured in a car accident may be able to claim Accident Benefits. These benefits offer some compensation for treatment, attendant care, income replacement and other costs associated with injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident.
Accident Benefits are “no-fault” meaning that anyone can make a claim regardless of whether they bear any responsibility for the car accident. They are paid through the insurance company, and governed by the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule under the Insurance Act of Ontario.
If you are already working with Jasmine Daya & Co. to provide counsel for your motor vehicle accident, we will process “uncontested” accident benefits claims free of charge.
Our experienced Accident Benefits lawyers can also assist with disputes and negotiations that may arise with your insurance company in the course of your claim for Accident Benefits.
