Everyone in Ontario who is injured in a motor vehicle collision is entitled to accident benefits for medical and rehabilitation expenses and, in most cases, income replacement benefits or non-earner benefits. There are many more benefits that may be available, depending on the circumstances. Our team of accident claim lawyers has the knowledge and experience to make sure you get the compensation you deserve after being involved in a motor vehicle accident.

Who is Eligible For Accident Benefits Claims?

Accident benefits claims are available if the collision involved any vehicle that falls within the definition of a “motor vehicle”. This includes cars, trucks, motorcycles and in some cases buses, but can also include other types of vehicles including ATV’s, snowmobiles, and other types of motorized vehicles. These benefits are available whether you are a driver, passenger, a pedestrian or a cyclist and are available to everyone injured in an Ontario collision whether or not they have auto insurance of their own.

Accident Benefits in Ontario

The accident benefit program in Ontario is one of the most complex in the world. It has changed numerous times in the past 20 years. Some benefits that were available under the regime even five years ago may have been taken away. At the same time, optional benefits were made available to allow you to buy back what was taken away. Unfortunately, many insurance companies and insurance brokers made little if any effort to advise their clients of the availability of these benefits. Even if the insurance company is not paying what the legislation requires, you may have a claim against the insurance company or broker for failure to properly advise of optional benefits that should have been made available to you. This is something that we consider in every case.

Get The Expertise of an Accident Benefits Lawyer

It is important to apply for these benefits immediately following a collision from which injuries are suffered. It is often helpful to consult with an accident lawyer about this process, since decisions made early can have long term effects on the benefits you will receive. There are differing levels of benefits available, depending on the severity of injury. If a lawyer is involved from the start, this process will go more smoothly, and will allow you to get the help you need to get your life back on track.

I am so thankful to have connected with John [Morrissey] who helped solve our chaotic legal difficulty last summer. I chose Siskinds simply through an online search for local Estate Law. John responded to my general inquiry in a timely manner and presented himself on the phone in a way that invoked confidence and trust. The expertise evident in that initial call was authentic.
John’s kindness, attention to detail, and great skill was so appreciated as we maneuvered a messy family situation. Through the long course of events, I could always count on John to be on top of things, never miss deadlines or important actions, keep me informed, explain procedures, and be patient with various oddities of the family situation. John’s professionalism, responsiveness, and expertise exceeded my expectations. John’s skill in dealing with the argumentative party was exceptional. I will also add, that both Reenya Koshaba and Heather Whitty were extremely helpful, thorough, and detailed in all their work and responses.
I will endorse both Siskinds and John Morrissey to anyone in need of legal assistance. I cannot express enough my gratitude and relief for John’s help in resolving this emotional family controversy. - D.W.

Elena [Ashford] and Angela [Belair] have been immensely useful in my application towards permanent residence. Elena's first hand experience as an immigrant brings out a compassionate approach towards her clients, and she is great with her knowledge of the processes involved. She takes a great initiative in ensuring that her clients stay on top of the documents and provides incredible insights into how the application would be viewed by the immigration offices. My application had come to a stand still, and after reaching out to her, it proceeded to approval within a month. Thank you to Elena and her team for all the great work! - C.P.
