What is an Accident Benefits Claim

Our Group is one of the most experienced law firms when it comes to accident benefits. We have been litigating accident benefits at FSCO since its inception in 1990.We have been counsel on a number of precedent setting FSCO decisions.

If your insurance company denies your claim, we will mediate your dispute at FSCO. If the mediation fails to resolve the dispute, then we will arbitrate your dispute at FSCO or start a lawsuit depending on the circumstances.

Accident benefits are available through your automobile insurance company if you were involved in motor vehicle accident regardless of who was at fault for the accident. If you did not have insurance at the time of the accident you may be able to claim these accident benefits from the insurance company of the other person involved in the accident. If there is no insurance available through the other persons insurance then there may be a claim for accident benefits through the government organization called the Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund.

You may have different accident benefits available to you depending on they type of insurance you purchased from your insurance company and whether optional benefits were available. The Accident Benefits regime can be very complicated but our Group has for years been bringing claims for our clients with very high success rates.

It involved evidence of psychiatrists, physiatrists, orthopaedic surgeons, occupational therapists, future care specialists, vocational alternatives, forensic accounting and quantification of damages.
