If you have been in an automobile accident, you should begin by telephoning the police and reporting the accident while you are still at the scene. If the other driver is at fault, you may be entitled to sue for compensation in addition to your basic insurance coverage.
Compensation may be granted for pain and suffering, loss of income and earning ability, health costs, family claims, and housekeeping and home maintenance.
Ontario has very strict time restrictions and requirements on the right to pursue a claim in place. You may be able to lose the right to sue if you do not meet these important deadlines. For legal advice and assistance, consult AAPC lawyers as soon as possible.
