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.

Hello, finally stopping by to say thank you for everything! I had the honor of having Jill McCartney work my case, amazing person to work with she is very nice, explains things very thoroughly. No complaints. - K.W.

As the COO of a midsize company I contacted Siskinds with regards to an intricate and somewhat challenging H.R. issue, and we were directed to Christopher Sinal. Upon review of this complex situation, his in depth knowledge of H.R. law allowed us to construct a clear and strategic plan. Phone calls and email enquiries were dealt with efficiently and timely. Chris displayed his competency and confidence in our final negotiations to bring closure to the case. We appreciate his preparedness and professionalism in representing our firm. - B.D.

When I was reflecting on the year 2020, and thinking of the people that had the most impact on me, you [Rasha El-Tawil] quickly came to mind. I was stressed and uncomfortable for the past few years, but when you took my case, I have since been able to relax and focus on other aspects of my life. I want to take a moment to thank you for making my 2020 easier. Not only have you contributed to my personal case, but you’ve also taught me the traits that an amazingly kind and intelligent lawyer should have. -T.H.
