Car Accidents

Traffic Signals: Be Careful Even on a Green Light

Just because a traffic light is green does not mean drivers can abandon all caution. Drivers always have a duty to take reasonable care at an intersection, even if they are approaching a green light. If another driver runs a red light and strikes another vehicle, in some circumstances, the driver of the car that got hit may be considered partially responsible for the collision.

Timely Filing of an Accident Benefits Application (OCF-1)

In the immediate aftermath of a car accident, it can be difficult for people to complete all the tasks required of them in a timely fashion, especially if they have been seriously injured. However, meeting certain deadlines can be crucial for people applying for accident benefits from their insurance provider. If an application for accident benefits is not submitted within 30 days of receiving the blank OCF-1 form from the insurer, delays and complications can arise. Click here to read more.

The Importance of Dash Cam Footage After an Accident

Purchasing a dashboard camera (or, dash cam) for your vehicle can be an invaluable investment. In the event of a collision, the footage captured by your dash cam could be used as evidence to prove which driver was at-fault and, therefore, liable for any injuries sustained. Dash cams can be particularly useful for identifying negligent drivers who fail to remain at the scene of an accident. To learn more about the importance of dash cam footage, click here.

Heat Waves Can Cause Car Accidents

As record-breaking heat waves continue to wreak havoc on communities throughout the province, the impacts of climate change on our daily lives is becoming increasingly apparent. The extreme temperatures can negatively affect our physical health, our moods, and even our driving habits. As it so happens, according to recently published research, there is a direct correlation between heat waves and higher instances of automotive accidents.

The Future of Self-Driving Cars and Accident Claims

Although self-driving cars are not yet available to the public, more and more drivers are purchasing motor vehicles with some level of automation. As technology progresses and the use of automated vehicles becomes more universally accepted, what was once a sci-fi fantasy may soon become a reality. However, before the widespread proliferation of fully-automated vehicles can take hold, some crucial considerations must be taken into account.

What Are Soft Tissue Injuries?

Sustaining soft tissue injuries in an accident can be painful, uncomfortable, and disruptive to your daily routine. On top of that, being sidelined by a soft tissue injury can have economic impacts, especially if your injury prevents you from carrying out the duties of your job and earning your regular salary. However, based on the manner in which these injuries were sustained, you may be entitled to compensation.

Determining Catastrophic Impairments After Multiple Car Accidents

For some people, being involved in a car accident can have lifelong consequences. People who sustain catastrophic injuries in a motor vehicle collision are entitled to accident benefits to help them offset the costs associated with the new realities of their daily lives. However, surviving multiple car accidents with injuries can complicate the process of getting the coverage they deserve. Click here to read more.
