In Ontario, if you have been involved in a car accident, and injured as a result of another driver, you can commence a legal action, known as a tort claim.
Under a tort claim, you may be entitled to seek compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, future income loss, future medical expenses and out of pocket expenses.
It is necessary to provide supportive medical evidence that speaks to the seriousness of your injuries and how your injuries affect your ability to work, perform housekeeping tasks or affect activities of daily living.
It is important to consult a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible if you have been injured in a car accident, as you only have 2 years from the date of the accident to pursue a lawsuit against the at-fault party.
