An Ontario Car Accident Lawyer Explains the OPCF 44R Family Protection Coverage

Ontario's auto insurance laws and types of coverage on auto insurance policies can be very confusing for the insured drivers. There are mandatory coverages that drivers must get, such as liability coverage. There are also many types of optional coverage, such as the ability to increase the amount of liability coverage. Drivers may not even be aware of some of the kinds of optional coverage, such as the Ontario Policy Change Forms (OPCF) 44R Family Protection Coverage.

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.

The changes do not only affect catastrophically injured motorists, but also other injured accident victims. This article will discuss the changes pertaining to those motorists not catastrophically injured.

A Closer Look at the Changes to Ontario's Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (SABS) - How are Catastrophically Injured Motorists Affected?

Last month, proposed changes to Ontario's Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (SABS) were passed in the Ontario legislature. Many Ontario drivers oppose these changes because they slash the accident benefits injured Ontario drivers can receive after Ontario car accidents.
