There are important things you should do as soon as possible after an accident:
You are entitled to select your own treatment providers and case managers, not just accept those sent by your insurance company. We suggest you meet with qualified health care professionals before you make your decision. We can help put you in touch with specialized professionals.
We suggest contacting Conte & Associates to determine if the claim should be pursued through your accident benefits or through WSIB (Workplace Safety Insurance Board).
In Ontario, anyone who is injured in a car accident is entitled to accident benefits coverage from his or her own insurer. You might be entitled to significant benefits for income or medical and rehabilitation benefits. If you sustained a serious injury as a result of a motor vehicle accident, we can offer you a free consultation.
If an injured person has a severe injury that prevents him or her from being able to make decisions, a family member can make decisions regarding treatment on the injured person’s behalf while he or she is in hospital. Afterwards, a Litigation Guardian can be appointed. We can help you with this process.
You must notify your insurance company and provide specific supporting information if you are making a claim for accident benefits. Your insurance company will likely also send an insurance adjuster to meet with you to obtain a signed statement.
You should obtain legal advice and know your rights before meeting with an insurance adjuster and before answering any questions.
You may also be contacted by an adjuster from the insurance company for the person who caused your injuries. You are not required to meet with that adjuster. You should always speak to a lawyer first. Conte & Associates can be reached at (416) 544-0008.
If you are injured in a car accident, you may have the right to make a claim against the parties who caused, or contributed to, your injury. Claims for compensation for your pain and suffering and financial losses can be made for injuries suffered in many situations and are often covered by insurance. These include accidents involving cars, motorcycles, planes, boats, trains, snowmobiles, ATVs and other motorized vehicles including public transportation. You also have a claim for no-fault accident benefits which may provide immediate payments to replace lost income as well as medical and rehabilitation benefits and, in some instances, pay the costs of attendant care and housekeeping assistance.
If you were injured in a car accident, we will meet with you to provide a free consultation to discuss your legal rights.
We are here to help, simply let us know how we can assit you.
