Completing OCF forms
Did you know that pedestrians have many rights and can be entitled to accident benefits if they are injured in an accident involving a motor vehicle? If a pedestrian is injured and they have their own insurance policy, accident benefits can be obtained through their own insurance company. An injured pedestrian must notify their insurance company and request an Accident Benefits package. The insurance company will then send out a package in the mail , which needs to be completed in a timely manner. This package contains many OCF forms. Our accident benefits specialists are available to complete these forms for you at no charge. It’s important that all the required OCF forms be filled out and that there are no mistakes on your OCF forms. It’s not that mistakes can’t be corrected, but they may delay the process or in extreme cases deny you of accident benefits to which you are entitled to.
