Car Accidents

The Ontario government recently announced their decision to amend legislation to target distracted drivers. Its main strategy includes harsher penalties and increased fines for accidents that result in death or bodily harm.

Whenever an Ontario person suffers injuries that are deemed to have been caused by another person, there will be a question of liability. When it comes to civil justice, liability is a word that will be used in a tort claim and also in a personal injury lawsuit. Liability arises from personal actions and, when it comes to tort laws, the typical concern is whether one person's careless, reckless or negligent actions caused harm to another.

The Ontario Court of Appeal (OCA) has confirmed that changes made to the Insurance Act in 2015 can apply to older matters.
