Motor Vehicle Accidents

 

When you or a loved one suffers serious injury, the aftermath is life changing and overwhelming. You are faced with a lengthy recovery, a complex insurance claim, an inability to work or care for your family, and other unexpected challenges. Brar Law Firm ensures you receive the appropriate compensation for your losses.

 

The law permits anyone injured as a result of a car accident to seek compensation for accident benefits as well as damages in tort for their injuries for pain and suffering and monetary losses. Many people do not know that the law, including the Insurance Act and Accident Benefits Schedule, impose significant legal barriers to compensation for victims of motor vehicle accidents. These include a statutory threshold for compensation and a statutory deductible.
