A “motor vehicle” includes any motorized vehicle such as a car, truck, van, motorcycle and e-bike. A “motor vehicle” can also include recreational vehicles such as a boat, ATV and snowmobile. Motor vehicle accidents can occur when you least expect it and when you least need another complication in your life. If you have been in a previous motor vehicle accident, you are familiar with how frustrating the process can be.

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS
Following a motor vehicle accident, you may be entitled to make two distinct claims: an accident benefits claim and a tort claim. There are different time restrictions and deadlines to make these claims. It is important that you notify the correct insurance company promptly in order to protect your rights. Injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident are often significant and permanent, with a devastating impact on your life. You may not be able to return to work following the accident, leaving you with a loss of income. You may likely be in need of ongoing medical treatment as well, which can quickly become costly. As such, claims for injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident commonly include claims for damages for pain and suffering, income loss, medical and rehabilitation treatment and out-of-pocket expenses.
