Ontario Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth wins groundbreaking catastrophic injury accident benefits case at FSCO.

Dirt bike accident results in spinal cord injury

dirtbikeaccident

A young man was seriously injured in a dirt bike accident.  He  was in his early 20s  when he suffered a serious spinal cord injury and became a paraplegic when he fell off his dirt bike while riding on a private track.  He had no insurance and thought he had no hope of getting any medical or rehabilitation benefits.

No insurance? Ontario Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund

Our Ottawa personal injury lawyers reviewed his case and we applied for accident benefits from the Ontario Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund, a fund to provide benefits for individuals injured in automobile accidents, but who have no insurance.  To access this fund, strict criteria must be met. The fund sets out to provide statutory accident benefits to people involved in an automobile accident, who have no recourse to automobile insurance. We believed this was the case for our client.  We applied for compensation for our client. We knew he needed a tremendous amount of support and applied for the maximum in compensation. The Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund denied the accident claim and hired lawyers to fight it.   Our Ottawa injury lawyers knew that this was our clients only chance at being able to secure funds for a long road ahead. We knew we had to fight for what was right.  Our Ottawa lawyers knew there would be a tough road ahead and that likely this case would end up being contested along the way. We persevered and took the case all the way to the Financial Services Commission of Ontario  last July and  last week the Arbitrator found in favour of granting maximum compensation and accident benefits for our client.   To learn more about the Ontario Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund visit www.ottawainjury.ca/uninsured-drivers/

We are so pleased that our client  now has access to medical rehabilitation benefits and attendant care benefits.  This will make a colossal difference in this young man’s life. We are so happy to have been able to help our client and his family…
