Can I still recover Accident Benefits if I was partially to blame for the crash?

Ontario’s Insurance Act established the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule. This is a no-fault insurance model. Even if you were partially to blame for your accident – for instance, you were speeding or failed to yield to another vehicle –you still may recover Accident Benefits.

The no-fault system does not, however, guarantee you will receive all owed benefits. An insurer may deny your claim based on accusations of non-compliance or if they feel that you longer qualify for the benefits. Examples of non-compliance may include failing to submit to an insurer medical examination or claims that you misrepresented information on your insurance application. Examples of no longer qualifying for a benefit is when the insurance company rely of the opinion of their independent medical examinations which has concluded that you are capable of working even though your doctor states that you are not.

In other cases, an insurer may improperly classify your claim. This may include denying extended benefits for which you are eligible by misclassifying your injuries as minor when they are non-minor or even catastrophic. At Goodman Law Group, we have helped many clients obtain all the benefits they are duly entitled.
