OTTAWA PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER – You may not be surprised to learn that with the current economic crisis upon us, the insurance industry is suggesting that it must reduce the benefits it offers to motor vehicle accident victims. Don’t be fooled. This is the industry’s cry every time there is an economic downturn. Needless to say, the insurance industry does not look to increase benefits when the economy rebounds.
In 2008, the provincial government undertook a review of the Insurance Act which is the law that sets out what benefits and rights injured victims have to pursue compensation after an accident. That review is not complete.
I am an active member of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association. OTLA continues in its effort to fight for the rights of innocent accident victims by speaking to government officials and educating the public.
Your Help is Needed!
If you care about preserving the benefits and rights available to people injured in motor vehicle accidents, tell your provincial member of parliament. Send them an email, fax or letter explaining that you are concerned about the erosion of available compensation.
Don’t know what to write?
Here is a sample: I am a constituent in your riding. I care about access to justice and a fair auto insurance program for injured people. Please do not reduce the benefits available to accident victims in Ontario. Please do not reduce our ability to seek compensation if we are seriously and permanently injured.
