Whether it is psychological trauma, physical injury, or both, we know that the road to recovery after a bus crash is long and often fraught with obstacles. If you were injured in a collision with a public transit vehicle, let an Ottawa bus accident lawyer at our firm help you file a personal injury claim and an insurance claim on your behalf.
Whether you were a pedestrian or bus passenger, you have legal rights following a bus crash that may include full compensation for:
Ontario accident victims are entitled to receive Statutory Accident Benefits for medical and rehabilitative treatment such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and any other necessary healthcare. You may also be entitled to receive income replacement benefits while you are unable to work.
These benefits are paid by your own auto insurance or the insurance of a family member you reside with. If you do not have access to an auto insurance policy, you are entitled to receive accident benefits funded by the City of Ottawa’s insurance policy.
We can assist with you filling out your OCF-1 application, as well as notifying the City of Ottawa of your claim.
Our experienced Ottawa lawyers have represented various OC Transpo bus accident victims, including victims of the OC Transpo Via Rail bus/train collision in 2013. In addition to representing you in your legal claim against the at-fault driver, we will assist you with securing your accident benefits and rehabilitative needs every step of the way.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a bus crash and have any questions, please feel free to contact our lawyers directly.
