Getting Compensation After Snowmobile Accidents in Ontario
Every winter our personal injury lawyers are hired by families of people who have been seriously injured, or who have died, while driving a snowmobile or skidoo in Ontario. As fun as they are, snowmobiles can be dangerous and serious snowmobile accidents happen every single season in Ontario.
Auger Hollingsworth has represented families who have been impacted by snowmobile accidents caused by striking a tree, impaired driving, as well as collisions with other vehicles.
Should I hire a Personal Injury Lawyer After an Ontario Snowmobile Accident?
Many Ontarians are surprised to know that their car insurance policy will apply after an accident to pay for medical and rehabilitation expenses that are not covered by OHIP. If you have suffered a very serious injury such as a spinal cord injury or serious brain injury, your medical and rehabilitation costs can be very high. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you access the maximum amount of benefits available to you. These benefits are not paid automatically. You have to apply for the benefits through your car insurance. Sometimes the insurance company will dispute your entitlement to benefits and deny your claim. Our lawyers can make the process easier for you and your family and can manage when your claims are denied. We regularly get benefits reinstated after an insurance company has denied a claim.
The accident benefit insurance from your car or truck insurance may also provide you with an income replacement benefit if you are off work due to your injuries, among other benefits. Again, our lawyers can help you apply for this benefit and will fight any disputes that arise about your entitlement or the amount of the benefit.
In the case of a fatal accident, the accident benefit insurance company should also provide a death benefit and funeral expenses.
