Automobile accidents happen every day. Do you know what your rights are if you have been injured in an automobile accident? With Ontarioâ€™s no-fault auto insurance system, your own insurance provider has a responsibility to provide you with certain benefits. In cases where the injuries are serious and permanent you may have the right to seek damages from the driver responsible for the accident. It is important to obtain legal assistance as early as possible to understand your rights.
