The Government’s Auto Insurance Changes - What You Need to Know

• As you know the Provincial Government has passed Legislation which will drastically reduce the benefits that people will be entitled to recover if involved in a car accident on or after September 1, 2010. From our perspective we would be remiss as a Personal Injury Law Firm if we did not remind our friends and clients to take the necessary steps to protect themselves and their families by encouraging them to review their car insurance coverage in light of the legislative changes.
