The type of accident might impact your compensation claim

When you are involved in a car accident, the type of accident is one of the factors that might impact your claim for compensation. In some cases, such as distracted driving accidents, making your claim might be a bit easier because the cause of the accident is already known. We know that you might be focused on healing after the accident and can't go through the process of investigating the accident to determine the cause. We can do that for you so that you can continue to work on getting better.

If your accident wasn't caused by distracted driving, there is a chance that we can still use the type of accident as part of your claim. There are many things that we can determine based on the facts of the accident.

T-bone crashes are a good example of this. In most cases, one of the vehicles involved was turning. In most cases, the turning vehicle would be the one considered to be at fault for the accident. Rear-end crashes are another good example of a case in which the fault would be easily assigned.

Things get a little more difficult in a head-on collision because it is often difficult to figure out who was at fault for the accident. The same is true for multi-vehicle accidents unless there is a very clear reason to assign fault to one specific vehicle.

There are very short time limits in place in Ontario for people who want to seek compensation for car crashes. If you are considering a claim for compensation, we can let you know your options.
