Litigating out-of-province accidents
April 30, 2013
As the temperature rises, so will the number of Canadians driving their vehicles out of town, and some of these individuals will inevitably be injured in car accidents in other jurisdictions, Toronto plaintiff’s personal injury lawyer David Tenszen writes in Lawyers Weekly.
“Once injured, usually after relatively brief periods of treatment out of province, accident victims return to Ontario to undergo the bulk of their rehabilitation and resume what they can of their normal lives,” writes Tenszen, partner with Thomson Rogers. “It is also in Ontario where they make their claims to their own Ontario no-fault benefit insurers.”
