In Ontario, if you have been involved in an automobile accident, there are 2 types of claims you can pursue. You can pursue a claim against your accident benefits carrier (known as a first party claim), and if you were injured as a result of another driver (the at fault party/third party), you can commence a legal action known as a third party claim (tort claim). Accident benefits are benefits that are available to you through your own automobile insurance company. Once you have submitted an application for accident benefits, you may be eligible to receive medical and rehabilitation benefits, income replacement benefits and attendant care benefits. Under a tort claim, you may be entitled seek compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, future income loss, future medical expenses and out of pocket expenses. With both accident benefits and tort claims, it is necessary to provide supportive medical evidence that speaks to the seriousness of your injuries and how your injuries affect your ability to work, perform housekeeping tasks or affect activities of daily living. It is important to consult a lawyer as soon as possible if you have been injured in a car accident as you only have 2 years from the date of the accident to pursue a lawsuit against the at-fault party and 2 years from the date of any accident benefits denial to appeal the denial. The lawyers at Aaron Waxman & Associates have settled many cases for clients who have been seriously injured as a result of automobile accidents. If you or someone you know has been involved in a car accident, it is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible. Know your rights as an insured person and as an injured person.
