Car Accident Lawyers

June 22, 2015

You’ve been injured in a motor vehicle accident. What now?

If you’ve been injured in an accident, you face many long and short-term legal and medical issues. You need to understand your rights in order to protect yourself. You may be facing injuries like broken bones, torn muscles, spinal cord injuries and head trauma.

Sadly, you aren’t alone. There are over 60,000 people injured in motor vehicle accidents (MVA) in Ontario every year. Our lawyers have helped hundreds of these people, and we can help you.

Understand the Law for No-Fault Automobile Insurance

Ontario legislation limits your rights when it comes to suing for damages for injuries following a motor vehicle accident. This same legislation, however, also outlines a claimant’s mandatory benefits.

You may receive compensation for your injuries from two types of claims.

The system consists of the following two parts:

  1. Accident Benefits: A prescribed set of mandatory benefits that insurers must pay to injured parties, including “at fault” drivers, passengers in vehicles, and injured pedestrians.
  2. A set of conditions and criteria that must be met before you are entitled to receive damages for specific physical and psychological injuries. Legally, this is known as a “tort claim.”

You pay nothing unless your claim is settled or won

The formal application for recovering damages and benefits through insurers can be overwhelming, but the team at Pace Law Firm has the experience to take you through it.

With our tailored team of legal, medical and insurance experts, Pace Law Firm can meet the specific needs of your case. A member of your team will always be available to speak with you and keep you informed every step of the way. Contact us now.
