What is the average payout for a car accident in Canada?

Some research has found that in Canada the average personal injury settlement from a car accident is approximately $120,000. While this may be true, each case is unique, and the amount of damages a person is entitled to receive is dependent on many factors.

Basically, damages in personal injury claims are indented to compensate the injured person sufficiently to put them back into the position they would have been in, had the accident not happened.

There are many heads of damages that are recoverable in a car accident claim. You can recover:

  • general damages for pain and suffering,
  • damages for past and future income loss,
  • damages to cover past and future medical expenses, housekeeping and home maintenance expenses, and
  • damages to cover future care needs.
  • In addition members of the injured person’s family may also have Family Law Act claims for their own financial losses such as time missed from work and travel expenses. They may also be able to recover damages to compensate them for changes in their relationship with the injured family member caused by the accident.

Is it worth getting a lawyer after a car accident?

If you or a loved one has sustained injuries in a car accident, it is usually a good idea to get in touch with a lawyer soon after the accident so you can understand if you might have a claim. Most will give you a free case assessment.

There are several good reasons to contact and experienced lawyer soon after the accident:

  • They will tell you if you need to put anyone on notice about a potential claim.
  • They will help you assess liability for your accident.
  • They can collect evidence of the accident that may get destroyed if not gathered quickly such as collision data recorded by the involved vehicles and surveillance video from nearby business that captured the accident.
  • They will assist you in determining if you have an insurance claim for statutory accident benefits.
  • They will assist you to understand your legal rights, and if you decide to bring a claim, they will help you seek compensation for your losses from the appropriate parties.

Once you hire an accident lawyer, they will handle all aspects of your claim for you. They will collect and preserve key evidence, they will help you get treatment and they will take care of all negotiations for you. Although the chances of going to trial are slim, it will always be worth it to have your case prepared from the beginning by a personal injury lawyer.

Hiring an accident lawyer is not a necessity. However, if you have suffered any injuries and wish to seek compensation for losses incurred from an accident, then it is worth getting a lawyer.

How do you determine who is at fault for a car accident?

Determining who is at fault for a motor vehicle collision can be complex. However, there are a few rules of thumb that can help:

  • a vehicle that strikes another vehicle from behind will often be found at fault (unless it was pushed into the vehicle ahead).
  • a left turning vehicle is often more likely to be found at fault.
  • a vehicle exceeding the speed limit is more likely to be found at fault.
  • a vehicle that has run a red light or failed to obey a stop sign will likely be found at fault.
  • a vehicle driven by an driver who is impaired by alcohol or drugs is more likely to be found at fault.

Even if you are partially at fault for an accident, you can still bring a claim against the other at fault vehicles in the collision. While your claim may be reduced by your own liability, you may still be entitled to fair compensation for for your injuries and medical expenses from the at-fault drivers insurance coverage.
