Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries and Recovery in Toronto

Motor vehicle accidents cause even more trauma when you realize you may not get the full accident benefits due to you. It’s even more traumatic to have to live with the knowledge that a negligent driver that caused you so much pain and suffering got off with soft punishment.

When you get involved in a motor vehicle accident, a lawyer is the first person you need to speak with. Whether you are at fault for the accident or not. And for that reason, you need a reliable motor vehicle accident attorney.

Motor Vehicle Accidents Are Too Common Not to Seek the Protection of the Law

Despite it being illegal, people still drink and drive. And are fully aware of the often fatal consequences of driving under the influence of alcohol.

According to a Belair Direct survey of Canadian drivers, 31% admitted they have driven through a red light. A similarly high 29% said they sometimes disobey road signs while driving. This is dangerous driving conduct that causes accidents. 

So, as alarming as it sounds, none of us are ever completely safe when driving.

Is It Worth Hiring a Lawyer for a Car Accident?

Motor vehicle accidents typically cause injuries, both physical and psychological ones. Many times, lives are lost too. And there is also the cost of the damage caused to the car and third-party property.

All told, you could be dealing with a huge post-accident financial toll, even if you don’t suffer any injuries yourself. If you have comprehensive insurance, you may not have to foot the bill at all, but only if the insurance company plays fair.

Get the Accident Benefits Due to You

Whether you are to blame for a motor vehicle accident or not, if you have insurance, you are entitled to accident benefits. These include the cost of treatment, lost income, and damaged property.

The process of claiming accident benefits is fraught with pitfalls that your insurer will seek to exploit for their benefit. To get what you are entitled to under your insurance policy, you will need a motor vehicle accident attorney to help you claim against your insurance provider.

Besides the insurance benefits, the law provides another pathway towards getting fully rehabilitated from the trauma and loss caused by a motor vehicle accident:

Lessen The Pain of an Accident by Successfully Suing the At-fault Party

Imagine the pain and suffering from knowing you now have to deal with a disability and financial ruin from an accident that was not your fault. Worse still, the aggravation from the realization that the person whose reckless actions caused the accident has not been fully punished.

If you feel that the SABS and your own auto insurance policy’s accident benefits have not fully compensated you for the economic losses, expenses, and other damages caused by the accident, you have the right to sue the at-fault party in court.

Unfortunately, the law in Ontario makes it especially difficult to get compensated for non-pecuniary damages. It places a heavy responsibility on you, the claimant to prove the accident caused you such life-altering harm that you must be awarded further damages. They call it the ‘threshold test’.

Between the threshold test and the other pesky matter of deductibles, there are so many legal intricacies that make it tough to prevail in a lawsuit against an at-fault party. If you are going to sue, it is vital that you have a highly experienced and skilled motor vehicle accident attorney in your corner.

Why should you have to bear the permanent cost of reduced employment opportunities, physical pain, and psychological stress of a vehicle accident someone else caused?
