What Are Ontario No-Fault Accident Benefits (Accident Benefits or SABs)?

Most Ontario residents who are injured in a motor vehicle accident are entitled to receive Ontario statutory accident benefits (SABs). You don’t usually have to sue to access these benefits. However, without legal advice, you may not receive all of the benefits to which you are entitled. These include income replacement benefits, caregiver benefits, attendant care benefits, housekeeping benefits, medical and rehabilitation benefits, and visitors’ expenses, to name some but not all of the benefits you may be entitled to. It is a good idea to have a lawyer acting on your behalf, in your best interests. Especially if you are in no condition mentally or physically to handle this type of stress.

What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

In a recent interview on CTV Morning Live, car accident attorney Brenda Hollingsworth discusses what to do after you’ve been in a car accident.

In this segment,  Brenda begins by answering a caller’s question about whether you should move your car when you have had a collision so other vehicles can pass.  This is always a judgment call.  Your safety is a priority and so is the safety of others.

The interview also discusses what information you should collect at the accident scene before you leave.  Get the other driver’s name, address and driver’s license. Wait for the police if they have been called.

It is also important to get medical attention as quickly as possible.  It is easier to prove your injury was caused by the accident if you see a medical doctor as soon as possible after the accident.

Read what Camila had to say about us on Google:

“This is more of a personal thank you rather than a review. Thank you to the whole Auger Hollingsworth team for the amazing service they have provided me in distressing times. Before making my decision to go ahead with Auger Hollingsworth, I had previously made phone calls to other lawyers. It was upon meeting Bianca there that I was certain this was the team I wanted to deal with. They kept all my records super organized, answered my phone calls and emails in a timely manner, and pushed to close the case within just over 4 years after the car accident. When you deal with a painful situation, you want people who understand your case, who take the time to explain the process and clarify any of your questions, and who communicate in a clear manner for the common citizen who isn’t in law. That’s exactly what they did, and more. I’ve gone to 2 of their locations and in both of them it was clear that everyone working there is happy to be there, which makes it obvious that the leadership is stellar. So, thank you to the whole team, to the various lawyers who helped me, to everyone I interacted with while I was there, because without you I would still be in pain with less funds to take care of my health.”
