Markham Car Accident Lawyer
If you were recently hurt in a car accident, you may have already noticed the overwhelming impacts your injuries have had on your physical and mental health, as well as on your finances. Recovering from even mild or moderate injuries can be a time-consuming, painful, onerous, and expensive process.
In Markham, serious car accidents often cause drivers, passengers, motorcycle riders, cyclists, pedestrians, and other road-users to sustain a number of injuries that can range in severity. These injuries often include:
- 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
- Traumatic brain injuries
- And more
Being injured can have far-reaching, all-encompassing effects on a car accident survivor’s overall quality of life. Owing to the isolating, disheartening, frustrating, painful, and long recovery processes an injured car crash survivor is often forced to undergo, many car accident victims develop additional disabling medical conditions in the form of severe mental health concerns. These often include:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Insomnia and other sleep disorders
- Alcohol use disorder
- And more
Furthermore, injured car accident survivors often incur substantial monetary losses related to their physical recovery, medical expenses, physiotherapies, personal training sessions, psychological counseling, prescription medications, lifestyle adjustments, lost wages, reduced future earning capabilities, and more. All because of another driver’s disregard for the safety of others, a car accident survivor could feel the physical, emotional, and economic impacts of their collision for the rest of their lives.
Ontario’s Compulsory Automobile Insurance Act makes it mandatory for all owners and operators of motor vehicles to have automobile insurance. And while the specific terms and details of available coverage differ from policy to policy, all automobile insurance plans must provide policyholders with the coverage detailed within the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule. As such, any injured victim of a car accident should be able to recover no-fault accident benefits to cover certain costs incurred as a result of the injuries they have sustained. Even if a driver’s mistakes or wrongful actions behind the wheel contributed to the circumstances that caused the car accident to occur, if they sustained injuries as a result of the collision, they should be able to recover no-fault accident benefits.
However, the accident benefits available to injured car crash survivors are rarely sufficient to cover their total losses. If you are one of the 23,000 Ontarians injured in car accidents each year and the insurance coverage available to you does not provide you with adequate compensation, depending on the circumstances of your accident, you might be eligible to pursue a civil claim against the driver whose negligence caused your collision to occur.
