It’s no surprise that many of us are long waiting for the snow to dissipate. A time to put back the winter clothes in the closest and get out our bicycles. The fact that you are on the road chances are, you may be involved in an accident.

We do not mean that you should expect one, but it doesn’t hurt to prepare; in case it happens. If a cyclist collides with a motorist, you may be entitled to coverage. If the crash is due to the fault of the driver, their auto insurance company may cover the damages.

In Ontario, in at-fault accidents, your homeowner’s insurance policy may cover you. If you are involved in a collision, report it to the police. Sometimes what appears to be minor injuries may get worse over time.

Remember to get the relevant information from the motorist. It includes name, license plate number, contact information, and insurance information. Seek medical attention and find a reliable personal injury lawyer to plead your case.

You may be able to receive compensation for your suffering. It often depends on the suffering and pain that a victim goes through, due to the accident. Reach out to our expert personal injury lawyers at Kalsi & Associates, at (844) 905-2993 or apply online.

Kalsi & Associates Raises Concern over The New Insurance Plan in Ontario

CTV News

THE STAR

A recent report on the state of Ontario’s Auto Insurance Systems shows that we have one of the least effective systems in play. While there’s a decrease in the number of accidents, the opposite is evident on the number of claims. They have gone up.

With the aim of reducing the insurance premiums, the government is working on introducing the “Fair Auto Insurance Plan.” It has been a topic of discussion since last year. This new plan aims at reducing fraud cases and costs in the Auto Insurance industry.

One of the areas of concern by many Personal Injury Lawyers and Kalsi & Associates included is the new plan will make it more difficult for one to qualify for a particular coverage, in case of an accident. Though the project will save the public regarding auto insurance premiums, it may be to the detriment of victims of accidents.

According to the plan, the treatment plans for common injuries that result from collisions will be standard. Also, medical assessment for those with severe injuries due to an accident will be by neutral and independent centers for examination. Now, you will not go to a family doctor or your specialist for assessment.

You will have to go to a designated assessment center. It may result in an assessment that is not comprehensive, thorough, or even well-reasoned. As we wait to see what measures the development plans for this new system will take; feel free to contact Kalsi & Associates at (844) 905-2993, for your Personal Injury cases, or apply online.

Parking lots are not only prone to violent episodes but can pose a hazard for Slip and Fall Accidents. Many workplaces are close to Parking Lots. You may not be working there, but you are still at risk of injury, in any parking lot.

Some of the factors that contribute to such accidents include deteriorating surfaces. When walking in a parking lot, watch where you step. Flat and even surfaces, are the ideal places to walk on. Avoid walking on gratings or broken pavement.

Also, watch for spillage of oil where cars are parked. They aggravate the situation. Antifreeze and weather conditions may also increase the risk of a slip and fall. Look out for speed bumps. They may cause you to trip.

Pay attention to any tire stops, as you walk. During winter it is appropriate to wear anti-slip footwear. If you notice any hazardous conditions in the parking lot, report it to the relevant bodies.

Watch out for cars and spillage. When walking through, don’t assume that the driver will see you first. Your safety should be your number one priority. And if you are in a position to prevent an accident from happening, then, do so, for the sake of other people.

Be on the lookout at all times. When you are in a parking lot, watch out for both fall hazards and cars. If by an unfortunate event you happen to have a slip and fall accident, due to the negligence of another, contact our expert personal injury lawyers at Kalsi & Associates, at (844) 905-2993
