Recent UberX Driver's Accident Highlights Uncertainties of Uber's Insurance Coverage - By a Kingston, Ontario Car Accident Lawyer

A Toronto UberX driver is threatening to sue Uber after not getting a response about his claim from a car accident that occurred earlier this year. This highlights the concern many have had about the adequacy of Uber's insurance coverage as discussed in our previous articles.In June, an UberX driver had a passenger in his minivan when he was t-boned by another vehicle in an intersection. The driver and his passenger were transported to a hospital. According to reports, the driver injured his neck and back and is left with chronic pain. As a result of the accident, the driver filed an accident benefits claim with his personal auto insurance company, as well as a property claim, but his claims were denied. His insurance company denied them because he did not tell his auto insurance company that he would be using his mini-van for commercial purposes.

Kingston, Ontario Motorcycle-Car Accidents - Accident Benefits

FAQ: My husband was in a serious motorcycle accident in Kingston. He was going straight through an intersection when a car coming from the opposite direction made a left turn right in front of him. My husband flew off his motorcycle after the car crashed into him and has multiple broken bones throughout his body. I've been with him in the hospital and don't know what I need to do in terms of his insurance or accident benefits claims. Is there a separate policy for the motorcycle apart from my auto insurance policy?

Ontario Texting & Driving Accidents - Can You Resist the Urge to Text and Drive?

Though almost all Ontario drivers know that texting and driving is dangerous and against Ontario's texting and driving laws, many drivers continue to text while driving. It seems that drivers are "addicted" to checking their phones at all times. This "addiction" is similar to gamblers who cannot resist the urge to gamble at casinos or smokers who cannot resist the urge to smoke even though they know it is bad for their health.

How Can I Pay a Kingston Car Accident Lawyer if I Can't Work?

FAQ: I was in a car accident in Kingston. I was hit by a driver who was texting while driving. I fractured my leg in multiple places. I am a construction worker and cannot work because of my leg. I cannot climb up and down ladders to perform the work, and I have no income to support my family while I am recovering and doing rehabilitation. I want to sue the driver, but do not have the money to pay a lawyer. What are my options?

Motorcycle Accidents Often Result in Catastrophic Injuries

In the summer, there are more motorcycles on Ontario roadways and highways. However, when motorcycles are involved in accidents with other vehicles, i.e., cars, vans, buses or trucks, riders often suffer catastrophic injuries or die as a result of the crashes. This is especially true if the accident happens at a high rate of speed or if the rider is hit by a much larger, heavier vehicle. Motorcycle riders do not have seat belts or airbags to protect them when hit by other vehicles. If riders are thrown from their bikes, the injuries are often fatal. If the injuries are not fatal, spinal cord and head injuries are common.

Avoid Drunk Driving & Accidents this Summer

Summer is in full swing, and many Ontarians take full advantage of the sunny weather. They have BBQs, attend parties, hit the beach, etc. For many of these events, alcohol is present. Hosts of BBQs and parties will buy alcohol for their guests. Beach goers will pack a cooler of beer. It is important to plan ahead to avoid drunk driving or impaired driving.

Who is at Fault For A Bicycle & Car Accident?

Bicycle accidents tend to peak in the summer in Ontario cities, such as Kingston, Ottawa and Whitby. This makes sense because cyclists typically ride when the weather is nice. Even individuals who are not avid cyclists may choose to commute to work by bike. Many people would rather ride bikes than take public transportation or drive.
