Hawkesbury Car Accident Lawyer
Sustaining injuries in a car accident can cause overwhelming challenges. Injured survivors of serious motor vehicle collisions often find themselves struggling with painful physical ramifications, emotional upheaval and stress, and financial insecurity.
No matter who was responsible for causing your injurious collision, if you were injured as the result of a crash, you might be entitled to compensation. In accordance with the province’s Compulsory Automobile Insurance Act, anyone who owns, leases, operates, or allows a motor vehicle to be operated must have automobile insurance. All automobile insurance policies in Ontario must offer the coverage outlined in the province’s Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (SABS). As such, all automobile insurance plans in the province must include coverage for no-fault accident benefits.
That means that, regardless of which driver’s wrongful actions caused the collision to occur, injured survivors of that collision should be able to recover certain costs associated with their injuries through their insurance plans. Accident benefits often provide injured car crash survivors with compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Attendant care
- Mobility aids, assistive medical equipment
- Home modifications to accommodate newly acquired disabilities
- Ambulance services
- Mileage expenses to and from medical appointments
- Housekeeping services
- And possibly more
While accident benefits can provide injured car crash survivors with much-needed financial relief to help them cope with the newly acquired post-accident expenses, the amount of available benefits is rarely enough to cover the total losses they have incurred. This is especially true for accident victims who have sustained severe or catastrophic injuries. Depending on the severity of the injuries they have sustained and their effects on a victim’s overall quality of life, the accident benefits available to them may not even come close to compensating them fairly.
Even car accident survivors who have only sustained mild or moderate injuries may find themselves in precarious financial circumstances after being hurt in a collision. Oftentimes, accident-related injuries make it impossible for injured people to return to work for a prolonged period of time. Without access to paid leave or disability benefits, car crash survivors who cannot continue earning their regular wages throughout their recovery often find it difficult to continue making ends meet.
That said, if your injurious collision was the result of another driver’s negligence, our Hawkesbury car accident lawyers may be able to help you recover the compensation you deserve.
