When you are involved in a truck accident in Ontario, regardless of the severity, you only have 7 days to inform your insurance company of the incident. Such strict laws and deadlines related to insurance add additional stress onto an already taxing time in your life. As is the case with every motor vehicle accident in Ontario, other time limitations apply in regard to a truck accident:
• Accident Benefits must be applied for within 30 days of receiving the accident benefits application
• If you intend to sue the at-fault driver, you must notify the party of your intention to sue within 120 days of the incident
• The lawsuit against the at-fault driver must be filed within two years of the incident
Like other motor vehicle accidents, pursuing legal action for truck accidents is a highly complex endeavour. That’s why it is important to have an experienced truck accident lawyer on your side. At Horowitz Injury Law, we have a wealth of experience helping truck accident victims seek compensation for injuries and damages. We provide the strong legal representation you need to achieve results.
We will fight to ensure that you receive fair compensation from your trucking accident. This includes the standard No-Fault Benefits you are entitled to regardless of fault, and additional damages in a tort lawsuit against the at-fault parties, to recover the full extent of your losses. Truck accident claims may also involve potential products liability claims against the manufacturer of a defective part or a design defect in the truck or its equipment. In addition, there may be a potential claim relating to inadequate maintenance of the truck’s brakes, tires and other mechanical/electrical systems that caused or contributed to the accident. Truck accident claims are often complex and involve multi-party litigation against both protected and unprotected defendants under the Ontario automobile insurance system. These claims require a lawyer with the experience, expertise and proven track record of success that Horowitz Injury Law can offer you and your family. We have been successfully representing victims of truck accident claims for 35 years.
