On May 28, 1999, the Ontario Government passed legislation that came to be known as the Ontario Motorist Protection Plan. However, instead of protecting motorists, the legislation greatly reduced the benefits that were available to persons who were injured in a motor vehicle accident. Since the implementation of this new legislation, there have been several more legislative changes further reducing the compensation for which a person injured in an automobile accident can claim.
Currently there is a complicated system of compensation in place that requires an injured party to collect benefits from his or her own insurance company (accident benefits), as well as claiming compensation from the wrongdoer (tort). TLCL’s lawyers and staff are trained and experienced in preparing and presenting your claim both to your own insurance company and against the wrongdoer. TLCL understands that in most cases an injured person cannot afford a lawyer and is willing to be paid if and when you receive compensation.
