Collingwood Car Accident Lawyer

In the days, weeks, months, and even years following an injurious motor vehicle collision, many injured accident survivors incur substantial financial losses. These losses could be both economic and non-economic in nature, depending on the impact their accident has had on the injured survivor’s overall quality of life. But where can injured survivors of car accidents in Collingwood turn to pursue financial compensation?

In accordance with the province’s Compulsory Automobile Insurance Act, all drivers must be insured. Additionally, all automobile insurance policies in the province must provide the coverage outlined in the Ontario Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (SABS). Therefore, all injured car crash survivors should be able to recover no-fault accident benefits from their insurance provider to cover some of the injury-related expenses they incurred as a result of their involvement in a collision. Accident benefits should be available to anyone who sustained injuries as the result of a motor vehicle collision, even if their own wrongful actions behind the wheel instigated the accident. 

However, depending on the severity of the injuries they have sustained and the impact it has had on a car accident victim’s ability to continue working or performing routine tasks, the accident benefits available to them are often not sufficient to cover their total losses. As a result of another driver’s negligence, unsuspecting road-users can sustain injuries ranging in severity from moderate to catastrophic. These injuries frequently include:

  • Whiplash 
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Strains and sprains
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Facial and dental injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries 
  • Paralysis
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Amputations
  • And more 

Because a complete stranger acted inappropriately on the road, injured accident victims could suffer the debilitating physical, psychological, and financial consequences for years following their collision. And in the aftermath of a collision, the accident benefits to which an injured car crash survivor might be able to access could be woefully inadequate to cover their total resulting losses. 

For example, if a driver sustains a spinal cord injury (SCI), they might lose the use of parts of their body. Since their injury is considered to be catastrophic, the injured car crash survivor could be entitled to a maximum of $1 million in accident benefits to offset their costs of medical expenses. But, according to research available through the National Library of Medicine, a single Canadian’s estimated lifetime expenses resulting from a severe SCI could range from $1.5 million to $3 million. How are catastrophically injured survivors of car crashes caused by another negligent driver supposed to make up this massive shortfall in available coverage?

If your collision was caused by another driver’s negligence and you sustained compensable injuries as a result, consider contacting our Collingwood car accident lawyers. By working with our car accident lawyers serving Collingwood, you might be able to recover the maximum amount of compensation to which you are rightfully owed.
