Did you know that regardless of who is at fault in a motor vehicle accident, you are entitled to numerous accident benefits if you become injured? For over twenty years, it has been law in Ontario that every automobile policy includes statutory accident benefits (SABS) coverage.
The lawyers at Bergel Magence have extensive experience navigating the often complex landscape of accident benefits legislation and litigation, and have the knowledge and resources to get you the compensation that you deserve.
You may be entitled to benefits that include income replacement, non-earner (if you were not working at the time of the accident), coverage for rehabilitation and medical treatment expenses, attendant care, housekeeping amongst others.
Your Bergel Magence team of legal professionals will be your trusted advisors and help you with your accident benefits claim every step of the way. We will help you file your claim, complete all necessary paperwork, and ensure that all important deadlines are met.
Should you want to pursue an accident benefits claim, aside from getting in touch with a Bergel Magence representative, you must notify your insurer of your intention to apply for accident benefits within seven days of the motor vehicle accident. You have thirty days to submit the necessary documents to begin the process. You have one hundred twenty days from the date of the accident to notify of your intention to sue.
We always endeavour to take the confusion out of this process, as our goal is to make it as stress-free as possible for you and your family. Our objective is to protect your rights and get you the money that you need and deserve. Contact a member of our accident benefits team to arrange your complimentary, no-obligation consultation.
