Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

Many of our clients ask, and it is perfectly fine to wonder, what is my case worth and how does a personal injury settlement look? In personal injury cases, such as if you are injured in a motor vehicle accident, monetary damages are paid to an injured victim, commonly referred to as the “plaintiff”, by the at fault party known as the “defendant”.

The defendant is responsible for the accident, and often times their insurance will step in their shoes and defend the action. In Ontario, approximately 90% of the cases will settle before trial.  Read More...

The OCF-1 Application for Accident Benefits is a critical form to get your personal injury claim started following a car accident in Ontario. This form must be completed before your entitlement for benefits may begin. You should report your accident to your insurance company by seven days. At this stage, your insurance company should provide you with an Application for Accident Benefits.

You must submit the OCF-1 within 30 days of receiving the package and failure to meet these deadlines may jeopardize your right to benefits in a timely manner. The lawyers at Bernstein Law Group are happy to walk you through the process of applying for benefits. Read More..
