What if I believe the accident was at least partly my fault?

Most people involved in car accidents feel like they are partly to blame for the accident. As someone involved in the accident, you only have an incomplete picture of the circumstances leading up to the accident.

Do not admit or accept liability for an accident until and unless you have spoken to our car accident lawyers in Toronto. Remember that insurance companies are often looking for ways to reduce their own exposure; be careful how you speak.

If you have suffered severe injuries, you should contact a car accident lawyer in Toronto as soon as possible regardless of your assessment of fault. Ontario's no-fault accident benefits system means that every driver involved in a collision has a right to benefits; even in civil proceedings, being partly at-fault does not necessarily disqualify you from seeking compensation. Contact our personal injury lawyers in Toronto today to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation.
