You May Not Have Insurance, but You Have Our Support

The law in Ontario requires all drivers owning a motor vehicle to have insurance; however this is not always the case. Uninsured drivers are more common than you may think and there is still compensation for accident victims involved in accidents in Ontario when one person does not have insurance. First, you would be entitled to liability coverage under your own policy of automobile insurance through what is known as the Family Protection Endorsement in your own policy.

However, in more rare circumstances, if you are an Ontario resident and you are injured in a motor vehicle accident where there is no insurance, you may have a claim to the fund of last resort — the Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund.

If you have been involved in an accident and do not have access to insurance, our Ottawa personal injury lawyers can help

There are legal avenues for accident victims in such a situation. Our lawyers can help you sue for the compensation you need and deserve, as you may need compensation for your personal injuries, medical expenses or loss of income. It’s important for you to choose an experienced Ottawa personal injury lawyer who has made claims before for uninsured drivers. We have successfully fought cases to ensure that our clients who were involved in accident with uninsured drivers or who were uninsured themselves received the maximum amount of compensation possible.

We did not give up and in the end our Ottawa personal injury lawyers helped our client receive the absolute maximum compensation. We helped him and we can help you.

Frequently Asked Questions

In Ontario, you would be covered by the accident benefits in your own policy in any accident, whether you hit someone or someone hits you. Insurance varies in each province, but in most provinces, your collision insurance would cover damage if you're hit by an uninsured driver.

If neither driver has insurance and becomes injured, Ontario law provides a safety net for people who are injured. The Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund (MVACF) provides both Accident Benefits and compensation for property damage and personal injury.

In order to claim compensation from the MVACF, the injured must be a resident of Ontario and the accident occurred in Ontario, the injured person can apply.
