Understanding Car Accident Law in Ontario

  • No-Fault Insurance System: Ontario operates under a no-fault insurance system, meaning that your own insurance company will cover certain benefits regardless of who is at fault for the accident. These benefits include medical and rehabilitation expenses, income replacement, and attendant care.
  • Fault Determination: While no-fault benefits are available, determining fault is still important for pursuing additional compensation through a tort claim. If another driver is found to be at fault, you may be entitled to further damages for pain and suffering, future care costs, and more.
  • Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (SABS): SABS outlines the benefits available to car accident victims, including medical and rehabilitation benefits, attendant care, and income replacement. Understanding these benefits is crucial for maximising your compensation.
  • Limitation Periods: In Ontario, you have a limited time to file a claim. Generally, you must report the accident to your insurance company within seven days and file a lawsuit within two years from the date of the accident. Missing these deadlines can jeopardise your claim.
