Automobile Accidents

Personal Injury Lawyers Providing Exceptional Service for Clients Injured in Automobile Accidents

Our roads get safer each year but car accidents do happen. There are many types of motor vehicle accidents, such as Hit and Run Accidents, Trucking Accidents, and Uber Accidents. There are also many reasons an automobile accident may happen, including:

  • poor weather conditions;
  • distracted driving, including texting and driving;
  • poorly maintained vehicles; and
  • driver error.

Regardless of the reason, an automobile accident can have a devastating impact on victims and their families. After an accident, you may require therapy to get better, need assistance at home with housekeeping and personal care, and you may no longer be able to work. The law in Ontario for compensating accident victims is complicated and can be overwhelming. How do you bring a claim against the person responsible for the accident? How do you get treatment? Who will compensate you for your lost income? Who will help you with personal care?

Proven Track Record of Success Pursuing Car Accident Claims

David Derfel and the team at Derfel Injury Law have been practicing personal injury law for over a decade and are highly experienced with car accident claims. If you are not at fault for the car accident, you may be able to initiate a car accident claim (known as a tort claim) against the at-fault party to recover compensation for your injuries. Tort claims are complicated and require a team with experience. There are many technical aspects to a tort claim, including time limits and evidentiary requirements. It is imperative to work with a legal team that has a deep and thorough understanding of the law when suing for damages and loss in a car accident. Derfel Injury Law has a proven ability to quickly formulate unique and effective strategies when representing victims of automobile accidents.

Our team works hard to get our clients maximum compensation. By retaining Derfel Injury Law, you can trust that you have a team with compassion and creativity to handle your claim from beginning to end.

Full-Service Assistance for Accident Benefit Claims after a Car Accident

In addition to pursuing a claim against the at-fault party to compensate you for your injuries, we can also help you obtain the accident benefits to which you are entitled. Statutory Accident Benefits are also commonly known as “no-fault” benefits or “AB’s”. They may include income replacement, non-earner benefits, housekeeping benefits, home maintenance benefits, attendant care benefits, medical benefits, and rehabilitation benefits. These benefits are governed by the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule – a regulation made under the Insurance Act of Ontario.

Purchasing Optional Insurance Benefits

Significant changes to Ontario’s “no-fault” benefits took effect in June 2016. As a result, the benefits to which you are entitled under your auto insurance policy have been greatly reduced. However, for minimal cost, optional benefits may now be purchased. Additionally, you now have the option to reduce your deductible for general damages.

Our personal injury lawyers and legal professionals have years of experience navigating Ontario’s no-fault system and are well versed in the changes that were recently introduced. We can help you understand the impact of these changes, and how you might benefit from purchasing optional benefits from your insurer at a relatively low cost.

Protect Your Rights

After an accident or injury, you may be contacted by representatives of the insurance company, who will aggressively pursue statements and documentation from you. Don’t let the adjusters of the insurance company take advantage of your situation. Additionally, there are many strict limitation periods that apply to no-fault claims and someone’s right to sue following an accident. It’s best to contact Derfel Injury Law as soon as possible following an accident to make sure you do not miss a limitation period and/or miss out on your rights to compensation altogether.
