Car Accident Lawyer in Clarington
Ontario’s “no-fault” insurance system is designed to provide compensation to everyone involved in an accident - even those deemed ultimately responsible. Nevertheless, everyone involved in a motor vehicle accident should always consider legal consultation from a car accident lawyer because Ontario’s no-fault system often fails to compensate for all mental, physical and monetary impacts that result from the accident. While no-fault accident benefits typically cover most expenses - vehicle repair/replacement, personal effects damages, rental car costs, some medical/rehabilitation treatments, and caregiving - it rarely provides full compensation for all damages. And this lack of full compensation is often compounded when the claims process includes more than one insurer, as the insured party inevitably ends up shortchanged whenever insurers argue over who should pay for what.
A car accident lawyer in Clarington can assess whether your case deserves additional indemnification, and if it merits possible restitution through court action to seek uncovered damages for pain and suffering, soft-tissue injuries, or other claims left uncovered by the no-fault insurance system. Numerous factors, including timely filings, dictate the ultimate success of motor vehicle accident litigation. Therefore, if involved in one, consult with a car accident lawyer as soon as reasonably possible. And never discuss the accident with an insurance company or anyone representing other parties involved in the accident, because anything discussed could become part of the case.
Ontario’s car accident and no-fault insurance laws cover passengers and pedestrians, who should also seek legal counsel if involved in a car accident. These laws are also applicable to accidents involving motorcycles, snowmobiles, ATVs, and bicycles.
