Car accidents are one of the most common accidents that can happen to us at any given moment. As of March 2019, it has been reported that there are around 35,746 total fatal and personal injury collisions caused by car accidents in Ontario alone. These car accidents can lead to severe physical disablement, mental trauma, and loss of property, not to mention that you or your loved one involved have to now face a lengthy recovery process, a complex insurance claim, and inability to work or care for your family during your time of recovery.

If you or someone you love has been injured because of a car accident, it is of the utmost importance that you get professional guidance from your situation. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries caused by the accident, as well as any other ways this accident affects you later on in life.

There are two available claims if you have been injured in a car accident:


A tort claim is a lawsuit that is filed to claim compensation for the injuries you have suffered in an accident due to a negligent or at-fault driver. This compensation claim is wider than what you are entitled to from an insurance company. It is centered around Non-Pecunairy Damages, for General Damages, or what is commonly known as Pain and Suffering, and Pecuniary Damages for Economic Damages whether that involves lost wages, healthcare costs, or other financial losses sustained as a result of the accident-related injuries.


It is mandatory for all motorists in Ontario to carry Insurance on their vehicles. These Insurance policies include ‘No Fault’ benefits that are available regardless of whether the person is at fault for the accident. Here, a person can claim money for their lost wages via an income Replacement benefit. They may also claim benefits for Medical and Rehabilitation Benefits and Attendant Care benefits for personal care services. If a person is Catastrophically Impaired, they may be entitled to enhanced benefits under their policy.
