Motor Vehicle Accidents

CarAccident

There is nothing more terrifying than seeing a vehicle hurtle toward you knowing you are powerless to stop the damage it’s soon to inflict.  Car accidents can happen to anyone. You may be a careful and alert driver, but that doesn’t mean everyone is.  It just takes a momentary lapse for the unthinkable to happen.

Recovering from a motor vehicle accident can be a long and difficult journey. Your injuries may leave you unable to return to work for some time. You may also need extensive medical care that is not covered by OHIP. Loss of income and unexpected medical bills as the result of a car accident can leave you financially and emotionally exhausted.

Beament Hebert Nicholson wants to help you on the road to recovery.  Whether it’s a car or motorcycle accident or any other type of motorized vehicle, our experienced team will make sure you receive all the benefits and compensation to which you are entitled.


Compensation

If you’ve been injured in a motor vehicle accident, there are two main sources of compensation:

Accident Benefits
Regardless of fault, a claim can be filed with your insurance company for income, medical and other benefits. Even if you don’t have insurance, you are still entitled to receive Accident Benefits.

Lawsuits
If another driver is found to be at-fault for the accident, then you may be able to claim for damages that will compensate you for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Economic loss
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Housekeeping and home maintenance expenses
  • Healthcare expenses
