If you or someone you know has been injured in a car accident, there are important steps that must be taken soon after an accident has occurred. The law governing these types of accidents often requires injured persons to notify their own insurer and the at-fault party within days after an accident has occurred. It is therefore essential that you quickly seek the advice and expertise of a lawyer practicing in the area of personal injury law.
The Personal Injury Lawyers at Prouse, Dash & Crouch LLP offer free telephone and in-person consultations because we believe that it is important that you quickly develop an understanding of your rights and obligations.
In Ontario, car accidents are governed by a “no fault” insurance regime. Generally, this means that there are two sources of compensation. The first source is your own auto insurer which is obligated to provide certain accident benefits to you following an injury. The second source of compensation is accomplished by bringing a lawsuit against the at-fault driver or any other person that may have caused or contributed to your injuries. Please contact a member of our Personal Injury Law team to arrange for your free consultation to learn about your rights and obligations.
