As an Ottawa personal injury lawyer I highly recommend that if possible you bring someone you to your initial meeting with your personal injury lawyer. The reason for this is that these initial free consultations are usually packed with questions and information that is vital to your case. Often times, when I meet with new clients, I will ask the person they have brought to write information down so that later on, they are able to go over the meeting and see what was discussed, what is need for next steps and a general review of the meeting.
When people are injured in an accident, often times they have so many things rushing through their minds and so many stresses that they can often sit in a meeting and miss valuable information. I will often send my clients home with their notes and tell them to digest all the information I have given them and then email me or call me with their questions. IT’s also good to discuss what you understood with a loved one who was also there to make sure you both heard and are of the same understanding.
That’s not to say that if you come in alone, we won’t take care of you. We can write down everything for you and make sure that you receive all the information you need. Our initial meetings are usually just a chance for you to share with us the details of your accident and your injuries and then let us give you information on how best to proceed to make sure you are well taken care of.
It’s important for you to know it’s our job as Ottawa personal injury lawyers to respond to any questions or concerns. That’s what we are here for.
I can honestly say that when our clients leave our meeting, they feel relieved. They have had so many questions and concerns answered and are finally able to breathe a little better knowing that they will be taken care of.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, take advantage of free consultation offers from reputable Ottawa personal injury lawyers. It’s your future and it’s important.
Ottawa Lawyers and Insurance Claims
If you have been in a motor vehicle accident in Ontario and you have suffered personal injury, you will likely need to apply for Ontario accident benefits from your own insurance company, regardless of who is at fault in the accident. Obtaining the forms is simple, simply visit the Financial Services Commission of Ontario website and download the forms. Filling out the forms properly is critical to your personal injury claim. It is always best that you get an experienced personal injury lawyer to fill out the forms for you to ensure that no loop holes are missed and that you get the maximum in compensation for your injuries. We fill out all the Ontario accident benefit forms for our clients. There is no charge for doing this, it’s simply a way to protect you and make sure that you get everything you are entitled to. The main forms in the Ontario accident benefits package:
1. Application for Accident Benefits (OCF-1)
This Application for Accident Benefits form must be completed and returned within 30 days of receiving the accident benefits package. If you are unable to return your accident benefits forms within 30 days, submit your forms late to your insurance company and provide anyway and ea detailed explanation as to why the forms are late. Your Ontario personal injury lawyer can also do this for you on your behalf. It is always recommended that you let your personal injury lawyer represent you and deal directly with your insurance company. Always keep a copy for your records.
2. Employer’s Confirmation of Income (OCF-2)
This accident benefit form needs to be filled out only if you are claiming Income Replacement Benefits. This means you were employed for at least 26 weeks in the year prior to your accident and you are unable to return to work for more than a week following your accident.
3. Disability Certificate (OCF-3)
This accident benefit form must be completed by you and your treating physicians or other health practitioner (chiropractors, dentists, occupational therapists, nurse practitioners, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, optometrists, physicians, speech language pathologists or psychologists).
4.Permission to Disclose Health Information (OCF-5)
This accident benefit form gives your insurance company full access to your medical records. Please do not fill out this form unless the adjuster handling your claim specifically requests it. Please also consider allowing your personal injury lawyer to fill out this form on your behalf. If your personal injury lawyer is representing you, they can ask your insurance adjuster which medical records are required and why.
5. Pre-approved Framework Treatment Confirmation Form (OCF-23)
This accident benefits form only needs to be filled out if your injuries fall into certain categories and you insurance company requests it.
6. Election of Income Replacement, Non-Earner, or Caregiver Benefit (OCF-10)
In most cases, you will be entitled to Income Replacement Benefit, Non-Earner Benefit and/or the Caregiver Benefit ; you can only receive one of these accident benefits. You must elect which accident benefit you wish to receive. Your personal injury lawyer will know which is the best choice for you and which accident benefit offers you maximum compensation. Let your personal injury lawyer address this with the insurance company on your behalf. This accident benefit form must also be returned no later than 30 days from the day you receive your accident benefits package. Always make a copy for your own records.
7. Application for Expenses (OCF-6)
This Ontario accident benefits form is used to submit expenses such as medication; physiotherapy, massage or other treatment approved by the insurer; babysitting; attendant care; housekeeping or home maintenance; transportation; destroyed clothing or glasses, etc. Original receipts for any claimed expenses must be submitted with this form. It is critical that you keep all receipts. In fact, I suggest you keep a “journal” of all related expenses sop that when it comes time to being compensated, nothing gets missed.
8. Activities of Normal Life (OCF-12)
If you are eligible for housekeeping, attendant care or non-earner benefits, this accident benefits form must be completed. Your personal injury lawyer will be able to explain to you whether or not you are eligible.
9. Declaration of Post-Accident Income and Benefits (OCF-13)
This accident benefit form is to be used if you are unable to work at your regular job or regular hours, but are able to partially work to some extent or get disability benefits from your work. This form can be used by your insurance company to calculate the amount of your Income Replacement Benefits. We understand that being in an accident is very stressful. Unfortunately the insurance process afterwards can also be very stressful. We as personal injury lawyers remove this stress from our clients. We fill out, submit all Ontario accident benefits forms for our clients and make sure they are done right. The reality is that one small mistake can result in the loss of thousands of dollars and we don’t want that happening to anyone. Let us help you… For more information, visit www.ottawainjury.ca.
Insurance Claims Lawyers
I am often asked to help fill out Ontario accident benefit forms.

I don’t want to scare anyone off filling them out themselves but the truth is , they absolutely need to be filled out in detail and correctly.
Unfortunately Ontario accident victims can’t miss giving pertinent information or the insurance company can use that against them when it comes time to settling their case. Is this fair? Absolutely not but it does happen. That is why I feel strongly about guiding my clients through this process. It is worth us taking the extra time to help at the very beginning and our lawyers and accident benefit specialists are happy to do so.
