Texting & Driving

Personal Injury Lawyers in Toronto, for Clients Injured as a Result of Texting & Driving

Texting and driving severely impairs a driver’s ability to safely operate a motor vehicle. Texting and driving is considered by many to be more dangerous than driving impaired. Just as drinking and driving is against the law and can lead to property damage, injuries, and fatalities, texting and driving is also extremely dangerous and illegal. Serious consequences and immense loss often result from texting and driving accidents.

If you’ve been involved in an accident caused by texting and driving, you may be asking yourself:

  • Can I sue the other driver for causing an accident while texting and driving?
  • What coverage do I have through my own insurance policy?
  • Do I have a no-fault claim and can I get accident benefits if I get hurt, even if I was the person engaged in texting?

Accident Benefits for Injuries Sustained While Texting & Driving

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 include: income replacement, non-earner benefits, caregiver 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.

Even if you are responsible for your own injuries while texting and driving, accident benefits may be available to you. When we meet with you to discuss your case, we will help you understand your rights, and determine whether these benefits may be available to assist you with your recovery.
