Insurance companies are proposing changes that will affect the rights of car accident victims. The impact of these changes could mean that victims may not receive the full compensation amounts they are fighting for.

If you have been injured in a car accident, consult a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. He or she will assess your case, and provide you with legal advice to help you pursue the compensation you need to move forward.

Proposed Changes Loom Ahead

According to an article on the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association website, insurance companies are attempting to take away certain rights from the victims of car auto accidents in exchange for making insurance rates more affordable for the public.

However, the rights in question may make it harder for a victim to prove their losses in court. One example of the proposed changes includes the criteria to make a claim. The suggested change is that victims must pass a stricter threshold injury test that shows a more "permanent, serious impairment of an important physical, mental or psychological function."

How Will These Changes Affect Personal Injury Victims?

Should these changes be implemented, victims who may need just a few years to recover may be out of luck to receive compensation. If victims suffer a loss in income for an extended period or endure pain and suffering due to an accident, they may not be able to pursue sufficient financial resources to cover their losses.

What Can You Do To Voice Your Opinion?

There are no final decisions on these proposed changes at the moment. However, if you feel that these changes should not be made, or that they are unfair, you may contact your local government representative and let them know your concerns.

 If you, a friend or a family member are victims of someone's negligence and suffering from injuries and losses, contact us to speak to one of our lawyers to know your rights and what steps you should be taking in order to protect your rights for the future.
