INJURED WHILE VISITING CANADA?
U.S. citizens and Canadian residents often travel back and forth across the border for both employment and of course recreation. Unfortunately accidents happen no matter which country you are driving in. This can result in U.S. Citizens being injured while in Canada or Canadian residents being injured while in the United States.
In most cases, Ontario law applies to all accidents that occur in the province, regardless of whether or not the injured person is a Canadian resident. Depending on the circumstances of the accident and applicable insurance, benefits may be available in both Ontario and the U.S. State in which you were injured. Our experienced Canadian personal injury lawyers can help you choose the legal options that secure maximum recovery for your injury. The law in this area can be complex. As experienced personal injury lawyers, we offer the high-quality legal advice you require.
If you were injured in a car accident, slip and fall or other accident while visiting Canada, you should speak to an Ontario personal injury lawyer to learn about your rights. In addition to assisting Ontario residents in obtaining benefits which may be available in Canada, we can also coordinate with lawyers in the United States to pursue your claims in the jurisdiction where the injury occurred, when necessary.
