Car accidents

Do you know your rights if you’re injured in a car accident? With Ontario’s no-fault insurance system, you’re entitled to certain benefits from your insurance provider. In cases where the injuries are serious and permanent, our personal injury lawyers want to work with you to determine if you have the right to seek damages from the at-fault driver.

It’s important to obtain legal assistance as early as possible to understand your rights. Ontario Insurance Act requires you to serve written notice within 120 days of the car accident to notify the at-fault driver of your intention to pursue a claim.

Do I need a lawyer if I’m in a motor vehicle accident?

A car accident can happen in a split second, caused by dangerous roads, distracted driving, impaired driving, speeding, and other conditions and behaviours on the road. The mental and physical trauma after a motor vehicle accident makes it difficult to document the most accurate details and investigate the circumstances of the car accident on your own and as soon as possible.

For 60 years, Harrison Pensa motor vehicle accident lawyers have assisted clients to investigate and document crash details, navigate a complex auto insurance system, and help them obtain fair compensation for damages and appropriate accident benefits.

Compensation for a car accident

The at-fault driver’s insurer may be responsible for compensating you for damages including:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of the ability to perform household services
  • Expenses for your care
  • Medical and rehabilitation costs
