Toronto Car Accident FAQ

If you feel overwhelmed and anxious about what to do after a Toronto car accident, you aren’t alone. Many injury victims have countless questions about what to expect moving forward. Below are some of the most common questions our law firm receives from accident survivors just like you. 

If you have a question that was not answered on this page, you can discuss your case in further detail during a free consultation. 

Will I have to go to court?

Going to court may not sound enjoyable, but it could be necessary depending on a number of factors, including how successful negotiations with the insurance company go and how considerable your losses are. 

Should I accept the insurance company’s offer?

Before accepting an offer from the insurance company, it’s important to review the offer with your lawyer. Insurance companies aren’t known for putting their claimant’s needs first, and they will like try to settle your claim for less than you deserve.

How long do I have to file a car accident claim?

The basic limitation period for car accident lawsuits across Ontario is two years. This gives you a maximum of two years from the date of the accident to file a claim. If your lawsuit is not filed within the basic limitation period, also known as the statute of limitations, then you will lose the opportunity to be awarded compensation for your losses. 

Can I sue for a single-car accident?

There are many reasons car accidents occur, and if you were involved in a single-car accident, you may still be entitled to compensation. Your lawyer will need to investigate the cause of your accident. If another party is to blame for the injuries you sustained, suing may still be an option.
