Accident Benefits Forms
All automobile policies in Ontario include statutory accident benefits coverage (SABS) that you are entitled to even if the accident was your fault. Even with these rights, the process of completing your claim is usually more complex than you think. You can find current Auto Insurance Claim (OCF) Forms on the Financial Services Commission of Ontario website.
New Automobile Accident Benefits Service (AABS)
The AABS is designed to help people injured in a car accident, and have had their claim denied by an insurance company. If you can’t agree with your insurance company about whether you are entitled to a benefit or the amount of a benefit, you can apply to AABS for help in solving your dispute.
Since April 1, 2016, a new branch of Ontario’s Licence Appeal Tribunal (LAT) began accepting applications to the new Auto Accident Benefits Service (AABS) system that aims to quickly resolve disagreements between individuals and insurance companies about accident benefits. The goal of the AABS is to reach a final decision within six months. It can be a difficult and challenging process, so you may wish to work with a lawyer to help resolve your dispute. The lawyers at McNally Gervan have already litigated many disputes before the LAT. For more information about LAT, click here.
