How to start a personal injury insurance claim in Ontario and initial OCF forms to be completed.

Ottawa Injury Lawyers David Hollingsworth.

Being in an accident can be devastating.  You may have been severely injured or even lost a loved one.  In most cases, life may never be the same again.  Often times, it is difficult to know where to start to begin your new life , without your loved one or your new life with serious injuries.  The important thing is that you do start to rebuild your life and return back to your life as best as possible.  Depending on the severity of your injuries and the particulars of your accident, you may or may not require the assistance of a personal injury lawyer.  Regardless, you should at least consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer  and discuss the details of your accident and let them advise on how best to proceed.  Most experienced personal injury lawyers offer free consultations, so you have nothing to lose.  It is always best to make these important decisions with as much information possible.
When we meet with our personal injury clients, we offer to have our Ottawa injury lawyers or accident benefit specialists fill out all Ontario accident benefits forms.  This is certainly something one can do for oneself; however, we feel that after an accident, our clients have enough on their plates.  They are often unable to return to work right away, are stressed and the last thing that should be on their minds is complicated paperwork.  We offer to either sit down with our injury clients and complete the paperwork with them, or we can simply do it for them.  Some of the initial OCF forms that need to be completed are the following:
Initial Ontario Accident Benefit Forms OCF forms ….
  • Application for Accident Benefits OCF-1 form
    • This form needs to be filled out when initially applying for benefits, following a motor vehicle accident in Ontario.  This completed form commences the Ontario accident claim.
  • Employer’s Confirmation of Income OCF-2 form
    • This form needs to be filled out if you are claiming Income Replacement Benefits.  This form must be filled out by you and your employer. If you have had multiple employers in the past 52 weeks, you may need to complete several OCF 2 forms.
  • Disability Certificate OCF-3 form
    • This form needs to be filled out to prove your injuries. The OCF 3  form is  filled out by yourself and your health practitioner.  Along with your health practitioner, you will be required to describe your injuries following your accident.
  • Permission to Disclose Health Information OCF-5 form
    • This form needs to be filled out to process your Ontario insurance claim. This form allows the insurance company to  obtain any previous medical information.

There may be other OCF forms for you to complete . If you are unsure of which forms to complete or how best complete any forms, it is always best to consult an experienced Ottawa personal injury lawyers.
