In the event that you do not have your own automobile insurance: or are not listed under someone else’s policy, but have been injured in an automobile accident, you can still make a claim for Accident Benefits (limited benefits available if driving without insurance). The circumstances will determine which insurance company is responsible for paying for the Accident Benefits that you may be entitled to.
If you don’t have automobile insurance or are not listed under someone else’s policy, and no other automobile involved in the accident has automobile insurance or can be identified, you may be entitled to obtain Accident Benefits from Ontario’s Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund (MVACF). We can assist you in obtaining benefits under these circumstances.
