Accident Benefits

Weather conditions in Canada can be extreme, and our country has more than one million kilometres of roads. Each year, there are approximately 160,000 motor vehicle accidents in Canada, and nearly a quarter of those occur in Ontario. If you have been injured in a collision in Ontario, you are eligible for accident benefits, regardless of who caused the accident.Following an accident, you should:
  • Seek medical help.
  • Report the accident to the police.
  • Report the accident to your insurance company.
  • Contact a personal injury lawyer.
Your first priority must be to take care of your health. Follow medical advice closely, and keep records of the doctors you see and any treatments you receive. Once your condition has stabilized, contact Sokoloff Lawyers. One of our attorneys will meet with you and advise you about your insurance claim. We will help you submit your claim, leaving you free to focus on your recovery.

Claiming Benefits

Depending on the nature of your injury, you may be eligible for various benefits from your insurance company. If you were working, you can claim income replacement benefits, which will allow you to receive 70% of your wage, to a maximum of $400 per week. If you were unemployed at the time, or were a student, you might be able to claim non-earner benefits. If you are out-of-pocket due to medical or rehabilitation expenses, you can claim the benefit that covers this. If you are a caregiver for family members, you may be able to claim benefits that will allow you to hire a replacement caregiver during the time that you’re incapacitated. And if you personally require help to do daily tasks, you may be eligible for an attendant care benefit. Of course, if a family member has been killed in an accident, your family may be eligible for death benefits and funeral expenses.

Sokoloff Lawyers will work hard to ensure that you receive the benefits you deserve. And because we work on a contingency basis, we don’t get paid until you get paid. We understand that this can be a difficult time, and we’ll do everything we can to aid in your recovery.
