Important information about motor vehicle accident injuries:
First things first, if you are injured in a car accident, obtain medical treatment immediately or as soon as possible. It is important to have your injury diagnosed and create a proper record of symptoms and diagnosis. This will be important for future medical treatment and any insurance or legal claims you may pursue.
In some cases, an injury is fairly obvious. You may experience swelling, deep bruising, or muscle and joint discomfort. However, this isn’t always the case and some injuries can take weeks, months, or even years to surface. In almost every instance, these injuries could have been properly treated with a personalized physical rehabilitation program adhered to in the first stages of the injury.

Who pays for your treatment?
According to Ontario’s Insurance Laws, anyone who is receiving treatment for a motor vehicle accident injury must first submit treatment expenses to any Extended Health Plans that may be available from their employer, school, spouse, parent or self-directed plan.
Our injury specialists will process your applicable Extended Health Coverage and will then submit the necessary documents to the motor vehicle insurer so that you receive co-ordinated and uninterrupted treatment. At Toronto Accident Rehab we make sure that there is no obstacle to your receiving the treatment that you require.
In Ontario, ALL patients injured in a motor vehicle accident are entitled to at least 12 weeks of rehabilitation treatment and medical goods and services. This treatment is paid for by the motor vehicle insurance company.
