Many Canadians involved in Florida accidents learn that the at-fault party may be uninsured or underinsured. That means, there is not enough insurance money from the at-fault driver to pay for the losses sustained. This is often the case because Florida has much lower minimum insurance requirements for drivers than Ontario. In these circumstances, a Canadian injured in Florida may be able to advance a claim in Ontario, Canada for the uninsured and underinsured benefits that form part of your Ontario motorcycle insurance policy.
Cross border personal injury cases arising from a motorcycle accident in Florida can be complex and you should not delay in consulting a Ontario personal injury lawyer to make sure your rights are fully protected.
