Car Accident Lawyers in Ottawa, ON
Drivers, passengers and pedestrians who are involved in car accidents frequently suffer serious injuries, including traumatic brain injuries or concussions, spinal cord injuries, fractures, and torn ligaments. The pain, suffering and disabilities caused by these injuries often leads to serious financial issues and other problems, such as post-traumatic stress, anxiety and depression.
Anyone involved in these kinds of situations needs experienced Ottawa car accident lawyers to help navigate the complex insurance system in Ontario.
At McNally Gervan, our lawyers who practice in this area understand the relationships between claims against an at-fault driver and various types of benefits that may be available from someone’s own auto insurer, a long-term disability insurer, the Canada Pension Plan or the Ontario Disability Support Plan. None of this is simple, and it is often overwhelming to anyone facing a serious injury and a long period of rehabilitation.

Ottawa Car Accident Claims
McNally Gervan is one of Ottawa’s leading law firms in handling serious injury claims arising from motor vehicle accidents, including motorcycle accidents, all-terrain vehicle (ATV) accidents and car accidents.
A tort claim is a claim for financial compensation arising from an injury. In Ottawa car accident cases, the tort claim is the claim against the at-fault driver or drivers responsible for the accident. Tort claims arising from car accidents in Ontario include claims for financial compensation for pain and suffering, lost income, medical treatment expenses and out-of-pocket expenses, such as housekeeping costs.
ACCIDENT BENEFITS CLAIM
Accident Benefits are available to Ottawa car accident victims regardless of fault and are sometimes referred to as “no-fault benefits”. For accidents after June 2016, accident benefits include a maximum compensation up to $3,500, or $65,000 in medical and rehabilitation and attendant care benefits, as well as up to $400 per week in income replacement benefits (sometimes more if additional coverage was purchased). The amount of coverage depends on the types of injuries that the victim suffered and if they have any pre-existing medical issues that will require more treatment.
There are also other benefits that may be available to an injured person if the car accident caused “catastrophic injuries”, such as spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain injuries, and impairment. It is important to have the guidance of Ottawa personal injury lawyers who will identify the benefits you are entitled to and will stand up to your insurance company if those benefits are improperly denied.
