No-Fault Automobile Insurance
Ontario legislation limits your rights when it comes to suing for damages for injuries following a motor vehicle accident. This same legislation, however, also outlines a claimant’s mandatory benefits.
The system consists of the following two parts:
- Accident Benefits: A prescribed set of mandatory benefits that insurers must pay to injured parties, including "at fault" drivers, passengers in vehicles, and injured pedestrians. See our accident benefits guidebook under the heading "What are Accident Benefits?" for more information.
- A set of conditions and criteria that must be met before you are entitled to receive damages for specific physical and psychological injuries. Legally, this is known as a "tort claim." For more information about this, please refer to "When can I sue for my physical injuries?" in the accident benefits guidebook.
The formal application for recovering damages and benefits through insurers, required documentation, and supporting materials can be overwhelming, but the legal team at Pace Law Firm has the experience to take you through it.
