If you are a Canadian citizen injured in a Florida car accident, you may have rights to claim benefits in Florida and in Ontario. Ontario auto insurance policies provide for medical and rehabilitation benefits caused by car accidents in Florida, even if the accident is caused by another vehicle. Your Ontario auto insurance policy will even cover you if you are in a rental car, or if you are a passenger in a Florida vehicle. In addition to Ontario accident benefits coverage, Ontario residents may also have claims against the at fault vehicle owner and/or driver’s insurance policy. These claims will generally involve Florida law, but sometimes may need to be advanced in Ontario if their is insufficient insurance coverage on the at-fault vehicle.
