Motor Vehicle Accident Claims

We have a “no-fault” system when it comes to automobile insurance. This does not mean that there is no blame — it simply means that part of your compensation for your injury does not have anything to do with whose fault the accident is. Standard accident benefits in insurance policies in Ontario include medical expenses, rehabilitation, care givers, income replacement benefits etc.

If however, you are injured and not responsible for the injury, then you can sue whoever is responsible for compensation. This can include loss of income, pain and suffering, housekeeping costs, future care costs, out of pocket expenses and expenses not covered by standard accident benefits coverage.

The most important thing you can do following an accident where you have sustained any injury is to contact our Motor Vehicle Accident team. We’ll help you to understand your rights, and we’ll be sure you get the compensation you deserve.

Slip and Fall Cases

There are many situations where someone has failed to keep their property safe and you have injured yourself as a result. For example, floors in public buildings that are shiny, polished and very dangerous at the best of times, but certainly in cold or wet weather. Cracked or broken sidewalks. Broken stairs, slippery steps or ice covered parking lots to name a few. If you have been the victim of a fall in someone’s building or elsewhere, it may well be that they were negligent. If you have been injured there are several things you should do immediately to protect your future:

  • Put the at fault party on notice and if the incident happened on city property, you must write to the city within seven days of the slip or fall and advice them of the accident and include your name, date of birth, and date, time and location of the incident.
  • Take pictures of the scene.
  • Measure the trip ledge or the hole.
  • Get the contact details of any witnesses.
  • Keep your footwear and do not use it again.
  • Save any documents that prove you were at the location of the incident.

There are many laws that protect the one who had the accident as well as the owner of the property. Be sure to contact one of our lawyers and we’ll make certain that you are aware of your rights, and of what we can do to be sure you are compensated justly.
