Hi, my name is Casey Dorey. I am a personal injury lawyer here at Bergeron Clifford today I’m here to talk to you about accident benefits and the minor injury guideline when you’re involved in an auto accident in Ontario and sustained injury. The first claim you’ll make is to your own auto insurer for accident benefits. When you apply your insurer may place you in what’s called the minor injury guideline. Minor injuries are sprain and strain type injuries and your access to funds is limited to thirty five hundred dollars for treatment.
Many people find that they run out of funds before they’ve reached maximum medical recovery, it’s also difficult to get the auto insurer to reclassify your injuries and enable you access to more funding. We can help with that we can also recover additional money for your ongoing treatment needs from the at fault party thank you for joining us today on ask a lawyer my name is Casey Dorey.
