OATLEY VIGMOND – Your Accident Benefits Specialists
In this section, we review some fundamental facts about accident benefits. If you think you may be entitled to accident benefits, use the contact form listed above or call 1-888-662-2481 for a free, no-risk consultation.
Accident benefits are available for automobile accidents and also for accidents involving snowmobiles, dirt-bikes and other off-road vehicles. Accident benefits are paid by your own insurance company regardless of who is at fault for the collision. This is why they are sometimes called no-fault benefits. If you do not have insurance, they are paid by the insurance company of the other vehicle involved in the collision. If there is no vehicle involved in the collision with insurance then you are entitled to accident benefits through the Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund.
Accident benefits are of huge importance to seriously injured people. Coverage is provided for medical-rehabilitation expenses, attendant care, housekeeping, income replacement, visitor expenses and other benefits.
EXPERIENCE – Oatley Vigmond’s Greatest Asset
Some seriously injured people think that they do not need a lawyer to deal with their claim for accident benefits. This is a mistake. Insurance companies do not always pay the benefits they should. They sometimes fail to tell people about the benefits they are entitled to. They often cut benefits off unreasonably. An experienced personal injury lawyer will ensure you understand the benefits that are available. They will also advocate for you if the insurance company unreasonably cuts off a benefit.
Accident benefits insurance companies know and respect Oatley Vigmond. Our success in the Courtroom in accident benefits case is one of the reasons for this respect. One of the most important issues in accident benefits is catastrophic impairment. A person who is proven to be catastrophically impaired is entitled to $1 million in medical-rehabilitation benefits and $1 million in attendant care benefits. A person who is not proven to be catastrophically impaired is only entitled to $50,000 in medical-rehabilitation benefits and $36,000 in attendant care benefits. Since 2009 there have been three seminal cases that have gone to the Court of Appeal for Ontario on the issue of what constitutes a catastrophic impairment. Oatley Vigmond lawyers were involved in all of them and successfully argued all of them.
