Here are some things you should know if you have been involved in an auto accident:
WHAT NO-FAULT MEANS
Ontarians are required to carry no-fault auto insurance. This insurance guarantees that no matter who is at fault for an automobile accident, every injured person can receive some form of compensation through accident benefits.
- The amount of these benefits depends on the severity of your injuries and many other factors. An attorney at Katzman, Wylupek LLP will gladly discuss your no-fault claim with you.
- To be clear, even if you caused an accident, you may still be entitled to compensation.
If your auto accident was caused through the fault of another driver, you can also sue the driver of the at-fault vehicle to trigger their insurance coverage. You will likely be contacted by an adjuster from the insurance company. The adjuster’s top priority is to save the company money. They will attempt to undervalue your claim and settle your file for as little money as possible. Also, the insurance company may try to take a statement from you to be used against you later. Before you speak to an adjuster or sign anything, contact an attorney at Katzman, Wylupek LLP to discuss your options.
WHAT TO DO?
- Call a lawyer: Every interaction that you have with an insurance company may hurt your case. Only an experienced accident lawyer will be able to advise you of the best course of action and advocate effectively on your behalf.
- File an Application for No-Fault Accident Benefits: Even if you decide not to pursue a lawsuit, this application will help you get benefits as soon as possible.
- File a lawsuit.
