You may have been involved in a car accident and not know it…

You may have been involved in a car accident and not know it… 

In Ontario, you don’t necessarily have to be in a “car accident” to be in a car accident. 

The legislation deems any injury that arises directly or indirectly out of the use or operation of a motor vehicle as a car accident. 

What does this include?

This can include but is not limited to:

  • slip & falls getting in or out of a vehicle
  • injuries sustained in loading or unloading a vehicle
  • pedestrian or cyclist collisions

What does this mean?

If your injury is causally connected to the use or operation of a motor vehicle you may be entitled to Accident Benefits. No Fault Accident Benefits provide immediate access to treatment and financial assistance if you are unable to work for a period of time.  

For more information on Accident Benefits and the types of benefits you may be entitled to please visit: http://www.smithvaleriote.com/services/details/personal-injury-law/accident-benefits

Determining whether or not you have been involved in this type of car accident can be difficult.  Each incident will be determined by the specific facts surrounding the injury and use or operation of the vehicle.  

If you think you may have been injured as a result of the use or operation of a motor vehicle and would like further information, please call 519-836-6849 to schedule a free on hour consultation appointment.
