Accident Benefit Claims
Ontario has a no-fault system of car insurance. This means that regardless of whose fault the accident is, that you are entitled to a wide array of benefits from your car insurance company; or from the car insurance company of the other vehicle that hit you if you didn’t have car insurance at the time of the accident. For you, accident benefit law will translate in to a lot of paper work, and a lot of hard to understand forms for you, your therapists, employer and doctor to complete. All of these forms are confusing and time consuming. Failing to fill out these forms properly can ruin a perfectly good personal injury case. Don’t get hurt again. Do it right the first time and trust the law firm the other lawyer have been trusting for years.
Goldfinger Law has assisted countless victims in recovering millions of dollars worth of benefits from their car accident claims. Did you know that over 42% of claims to submitted to car insurance companies for benefits get denied right away. This keeps our team of lawyers, law clerks, and accident benefit network busy as we are constantly fighting with insurance companies to get those benefits which you’re entitled to.
The laws of accident benefit insurance are constantly changing. Just recently, car insurance benefits for medical and rehabilitative benefits have been cut in half from $100,000 to $50,000; and down to $3,500 for accidents which fall in to the Minor Injury Guideline. Caregiver Benefits which were at $250/week have been eliminated all together. Attendant Care Benefits which used to be at $3,000/month for non-catastrophic cases; have been cut in half to $1,500/month. Goldfinger Law has been at the forefront of the political battlefield assisting such organizations as the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association to reverse these changes to Ontario’s car insurance regime which negatively impact average Ontario drivers and victims.

Review: Goldfinger Law
5.0 "First Rate Job"
On September 27, 2003 I was driving on a rural road in my home town of St. Thomas Ontario when I saw a deer standing in the middle of the road directly in front of my car. I couldn't stop in time so I swerved off the road to avoid the deer, and ended up hitting a tree head on. I got a concussion and what my neuropsychologist calls a mild traumatic brain injury. I didn't know what to do or where to turn. If I could sue the deer, I would, but that wouldn't go anywhere. I called Brian Goldfinger and Goldfinger Law for help. They told me that I had an accident benefit claim despite the fact I was the only person involved in the accident. I had never head of an accident benefit claim before until Brian explained to me how no fault insurance in Ontario worked. Brian Goldfinger helped get me attendant care benefits, income replacement benefits, housekeeping benefits, handyman benefits, and also helped make sure that my physiotherapy, massage, and psychological counselling were all paid for by the insurance company. Brian and his team at Goldfinger Law got me a $297,500 settlement from the insurance company. I think Brian did a first rate job on my case and I would recommend him to anyone who needs a personal injury lawyer or anyone who has an accident benefit claim. Had I not called Brian, I'd likely still be knocking my head against the wall trying to figure out a way to get the deer to pay for my car accident. Thanks Brian.
