Personal Injury Insurance Claims

The laws regarding personal injury claims in Ontario are complex and have changed significantly since the 1990s.  Legal advice is essential if you have been injured in an accident.  Do not rely upon general information from the internet or other sources (including this website) or “knowledgable” friends or acquaintances who have been involved in accidents.  These are no substitute for legal advice.  Do not be afraid to contact a lawyer.

There can be serious consequences if notice periods (where you put the other side on notice that you intend to make a claim) or limitation periods (the date by which you must commence your claim) are missed.
