Toronto Car Accident FAQs
Getting hurt in an auto collision is a traumatic experience that’s bound to leave you unsure of what to do next. (Read our article about what to do when the insurance company denies your personal injury claim.)
We’ve answered a few common questions below, but don’t hesitate to call our office so that you can speak with a car accident attorney directly.
How can I prove that a driver was texting or using a cell phone at the time of the car accident?
Your personal injury lawyer might be able to obtain cell phone records for the other driver’s service provider. These records might indicate whether a text was sent or the phone was otherwise in use in the minutes leading up to the wreck.
How long do I have to file a claim for a car accident in Toronto?
Ontario provides a statute of limitations of two years to seek damages for a car accident. This time limit starts on the date of the collision—the date you were injured. If you wait longer than two years, you will lose your right to seek financial compensation.
Do I need to see a doctor after a motor vehicle accident if I feel fine?
Yes! Car accidents often cause delayed injuries that don’t manifest symptoms immediately. This is especially true when the injuries involve the brain, back, or neck. By seeing a doctor immediately after the accident, you can start receiving treatment sooner and show that you took your health seriously.
