Brooklin Personal Injury Lawyer


Surviving a traumatic accident can be an expensive process. Even people who have sustained moderate or seemingly mild injuries can face steep financial consequences. 

Depending on the circumstances of the traumatic incident and the degree to which an accident victim’s injuries have impacted their daily life, there might be insurance coverage available to help replace the costs of certain injury-related expenses. For example, any road-user who sustained injuries in a motor vehicle collision should be eligible to receive accident benefits

No-fault accident benefits are typically made available to anyone who has been injured in a car crash, even if their own wrongful actions on the road were instrumental in causing the collision. Since all motor vehicle owners and operators in the province are required by law to be insured and all automobile insurance plans must provide the minimum coverage outlined in the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (SABS), all motorists injured in a collision should technically have access to no-fault accident benefits. 

Even pedestrians and cyclists who do not have automotive insurance plans of their own might be able to collect accident benefits if they were struck by a motor vehicle and sustained injuries as a result. Since all automobile insurance plans include third-party liability coverage, uninsured accident survivors who have sustained injuries as a result of the at-fault driver’s negligence may be able to collect benefits to cover their injury-related costs.

Unfortunately, the amount of accident benefits available to injured car crash survivors is not always enough to cover their total losses. Injured accident victims could find themselves struggling to make ends meet after being completely sidelined by an unexpected, injurious collision. People who have survived severe accidents often incur substantial financial losses related to:

  • Lost wages due to missed work
  • Prescription drugs
  • Physical rehabilitation / physiotherapy
  • Psychological treatment
  • Mileage to and from medical appointments
  • Reduced future earning capacity
  • Attendant care
  • Mobility aids
  • Other medical expenses
  • Housekeeping services
  • Home renovations to accommodate new disabilities
  • And more

The costs associated with surviving a traumatic accident are usually even greater for people who have sustained catastrophic injuries. Permanent in nature and oftentimes debilitating, catastrophic injuries can diminish an accident survivors’ entire quality of life. In addition to suffering the isolating and demoralizing emotional repercussions typically experienced by catastrophically injured accident survivors, these unfortunate accident victims could be forced to incur insurmountable levels of debt, far exceeding the cost of any no-fault accident benefits that might be available to them. 

In the aftermath of a traumatic accident, it can be difficult to immediately ascertain which party was at-fault. Certain scenarios might be clear-cut. For example, if a driver speeds through a red light and strikes a pedestrian who was rightfully crossing the street at an intersection, the irresponsible driver could be clearly identified as the party who was in the wrong, especially if the collision was captured by traffic surveillance cameras or another vehicle’s dash cam. However, other situations might not be as cut and dry.

Sometimes, even accidents that take place while no one else is present at the scene could be the result of another person’s negligence. For example, if a person is visiting their friend’s apartment complex and slips and falls on the improperly cleared snow or ice outside their residential building, it could be the result of the building owner’s/occupier’s negligence. In the context of premises liability claims, the term “occupier” could refer to:

  • Property owners
  • Building managers
  • Superintendents
  • Landlords
  • Business operators
  • Tenants
  • Landscapers
  • Custodians
  • Anyone who controls access to the building
  • Anyone responsible for the property’s maintenance 
  • And possibly more

In accordance with the province’s Occupiers’ Liability Act, property owners/occupiers are required to fulfill a duty of care to guests, customers, employees, mail carriers, delivery agents, passersby, and anyone else that might be interacting with their premises. Similarly, according to Ontario’s Highway Traffic Act, anyone who operates a motor vehicle on the province’s roads and highways must do so with a reasonable degree of caution. Just as a property’s occupier should take care to perform routine maintenance around their premises and address any potentially dangerous hazards on-site in order to prevent injury-causing accidents, motor vehicle operators must practice safe driving habits at all times and obey local traffic laws in order to the reduce the risks of fatalities or severe injuries on the road. Failure to uphold one’s duty of care by engaging in unsafe, careless, wrongful conduct is often considered negligence.
