Steps to Follow

Immediately after a car accident, you may be shaken up or confused. The first and most important step to follow is informing the police. You should make sure that the police have been made aware of the accident, especially if anyone involved has sustained injuries. It is important that you document as much of the accident damage as possible, by camera or phone. The police or Collision Reporting Centre will ask you to complete a report, which may be used later on in the claims process, so it is important that all information and injuries are listed. You should also try to do the following:

  • Exchange Driver Information
  • Document Details of Accident
  • Visit Family Doctor
  • Keep All Receipts Involved
  • Write Down Witness Information
  • Enlist Legal Counsel
  • Notify Accident Benefits Insurance Company

Following your accident, you will only have seven days to officially notify the accident benefits insurance company. This means that you will need to act quickly after your accident, seeking our legal counsel as soon as possible. If you decide to file a claim against the at-fault driver, you will also be facing time restrictions. Our skilled Toronto car accident lawyers are here to help you build a strong case to obtain the compensation you deserve.
