All persons involved in motor vehicle accidents are entitled to receive benefits called Statutory Accident Benefits from their automobile insurers regardless of fault.

We will work diligently to ensure that you receive all benefits to which you are entitled under the law.
Strict time lines exist in the accident benefits claim process, so you should immediately consult experienced and qualified legal counsel. Please contact us for a free consultation. We will inform you of your rights and assist you with your claim for accident benefits.
Those involved in motor vehicle accidents may also have a tort claim. A tort claim involves bringing a legal action against the at-fault party or at-fault parties. In a tort claim, unlike an accident benefits claim, you may obtain compensation for pain and suffering. In general, a tort claim must be commenced by the second anniversary after which you discover or ought to have discovered that you have sustained serious impairment as a result of the motor vehicle accident.
