This type of claim can be submitted to your own vehicle insurance company, to the company that covers the car you were in at the time of the accident, or to the company that covers the other party’s car.
The accident benefits you may be entitled to receive can include:
Income replacement benefits
Medical and rehabilitation benefits
Attendant care benefits
Other benefits depending on the circumstances
Dealing with accident benefits claims can be very complex and confusing. Ottawa lawyer John Dempster can explain your options, and help you obtain what you are entitled to receive from the appropriate motor vehicle insurance company.
Personal Injury Claim Against the At-fault Person or Persons
This type of claim is commonly called a tort claim. Depending on how serious your injuries are, you may be entitled to make a claim for various damages that are not normally covered by accident benefits insurance: pain and suffering, income loss, attendant care, medical, rehabilitation, future care and assistance costs.
Family members of the injured person can also make certain claims for damages depending on the circumstances.
The initial consultation concerning motor vehicle accident claims is free. Should you decide to move forward, John D. Dempster will represent you on a contingency fee basis, which means that you only need to pay a percentage of the received compensation if your case is won.
