Do I Have a Car Accident Case?

Every car accident is different, but not every fender-bender requires a car accident lawsuit. If you or a loved one are injured because someone else was negligent, you may have a claim that can get you compensation for your losses.

In most car accident cases, the negligence or recklessness of the other driver is based on whether they failed to act reasonably. Some examples include breaking traffic laws, speeding, driving while distracted, or driving impaired.

At Donnelly Murphy Lawyers, our car accident team will explain how the laws apply to your case and how to maximize your compensation.

How Long Do I Have to File a Car Accident Lawsuit?

You have to act quickly to protect your rights after a car crash. In Ontario, you usually have two years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit. If you fail to file before time expires, your entire case may be dismissed, even if fault and liability are obvious.

What Compensation Can I Get After a Car Accident?

Your vehicle may be damaged beyond repair, and you may be unable to work. But your bills will still need to be paid. The compensation you can recover will allow you to get proper medical care and put you back where you were financially, before the accident.

It’s important to consider your past and future damages. After a car accident, you may be entitled to:

The exact value of your claim will depend on the severity of your injuries, the expenses you have incurred, and how your injuries negatively impact your life. If you have questions, you should work with an experienced car accident lawyer.

How Can a Car Accident Lawyer Help Me?

Insurance companies may seem friendly after a car crash, but their goal is to pay you as little as possible. Even if you file a claim with your own insurance company, they may delay and minimize payment. You should work with someone who can give you legal advice on navigating a car accident claim.

With a deep commitment to our clients and more than 90 years of success in the Province, Donnelly Murphy Lawyers can handle every aspect of your case.

Let us investigate, find the evidence, and work with experts to figure out what the other parties owe you in compensation. The insurance company will have a team of lawyers, but we’ll negotiate for you and won’t hesitate to take them to court if necessary.

Ontario Car Accident Insurance

Ontario drivers must purchase auto insurance. Basic policies cover third-party liability and help you get compensation. But the minimum amount may not cover all your losses. So, many people purchase additional coverage. We will investigate and determine the value of your claim.

Insurance companies are mainly interested in reducing their financial liability. They want to pay you as little as possible. They may make you an offer quickly. But it may not cover everything. It’s in your best interests to work with a lawyer to get what’s fair.
