When to speak with a Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyer
In Ontario, more than 60,000 people are injured in motor vehicle accidents every year.
If you’ve been in an accident and have sustained an injury, it is important to understand your legal rights as soon as possible.
Why speak with a lawyer?
Motor vehicle accidents can result in serious injuries, including broken bones, torn muscles, spinal cord injuries and head trauma. Such medical conditions can have long-term consequences so it is important to speak with a lawyer right away. Doing so will ensure that you receive all the benefits that you’re entitled to so that you are adequately taken care of. Moreover, your lawyer will work with your medical team in order to ensure that you receive the best healthcare possible.
What about costs?
The good news is that it will not cost you anything to speak with a lawyer. And, if a lawyer takes on your case, you will not incur any upfront costs. The lawyers in our network work on contingency, which means they only get paid if they win your case. This means you never have to incur any out-of-pocket expenses.
Understanding Automobile Insurance
The law in Ontario is complex when it comes to suing for damages with respect to injuries sustained from a motor vehicle accident. Typically, the law limits your rights, however a good lawyer can help you receive the compensation that you’re entitled to, under two provisions:
These benefits are available, regardless of whether you are at-fault or not at-fault. These benefits may also extend to passengers who are in the vehicle at the time of the accident as well as pedestrians.
To receive additional compensation for damages pertaining to specific injuries as well as psychological injuries, various criteria must be met. This is where you’ll need the counsel of a good lawyer.
It can be a daunting process to work directly with insurers, and without a lawyer protecting your rights, you may not receive all that you are entitled to. For these reasons it’s a good idea to have a lawyer handling all aspects of your injury claims.
The lawyers within our network have the experience to go up against insurance companies. They will fight for you so that you receive the maximum amount of benefits. Moreover, the medical professionals we deal with will know exactly what to do to help you recover.

The lawyers within our network will provide you with free legal advice so that you can better-understand what your legal rights are. If they take on your case, you will never incur any out-of-pocket fees. The only time you will pay a fee is if the lawyer wins your case. In this scenario, they receive a percentage of the proceeds that they win for you.
Insurance companies will settle your case, however, what they offer you may not entirely cover what you are entitled to. It’s in your best interest to speak with a lawyer to make sure that you’re getting the maximum amount of compensation that you deserve.
