PUBLIC TRANSPORATION ACCIDENTS / TTC ACCIDENTS

Ontario's personal injury laws can be daunting to navigate for the average individual but become even more challenging when the accident occurred on  public transportation. Public transportation accidents resulting in injury are more common than one would expect. Our lawyers have represented thousands of victims that have been injured in accidents on public transportation.  We have helped clients obtain treatment and compensation after transit accidents involving:

  • Bus accidents
  • Subway Accidents
  • Train Accidents
  • Accidents on TTC property
  • Taxi Accidents 

If you are on a public transportation vehicle that has been in an accident with an object or another vehicle then you will be entitled to both an accident benefit claim and a tort claim, you will have to meet the threshold test and the regular deductible for pain and suffering will apply. 

As of May 12, 2011 Schedule 20 of Bill 173 the Ontario Insurance Act was amended to eliminate accident benefits from victims that have been hurt on public transit where the injury was not as result of a collision. Even though victims who have been injured in such circumstances will not be able to access accident benefits the victims’ rights will not be restricted as they are when dealing with a motor vehicle accident claims. The deductible and the threshold will not apply to such claims meaning the victim will be entitled to more compensation.  Accidents that occurred on public transportation carrier’s property will have the law that deal with any slip and fall apply.

If you have been injured in accident involving the TTC or any other public transportation carrier, contact Mario Cariati to get proper legal advice on your rights in this complex system.
