While most Canadians can’t imagine their lives without cars, car accidents have become a regular occurrence in the world.Fortunately for consumers, cars are becoming increasingly safe due to technological advancements and consumer demand for safer vehicles.Despite this, car accidents remain a significant cause of death and injury for many Canadians.

Many Ontarians involved in car accidents are unsure of what their rights and options are to recover compensation for their injuries, and how to begin the process of accessing compensation and benefits.For example, many people are unaware that accident victims may be able to recover compensation and benefits from their own insurer regardless of who was at fault.Common questions accident victims have following car accidents include:

  • Will insurance cover the damage to my vehicle?
  • Will my medical expenses be covered or reimbursed by insurance?
