You May Not Have Insurance, but You Have Our Support
The law in Ontario requires all drivers owning a motor vehicle to have insurance; however this is not always the case. Uninsured drivers are more common than you may think and there is still compensation for accident victims involved in accidents in Ontario when one person does not have insurance. First, you would be entitled to liability coverage under your own policy of automobile insurance through what is known as the Family Protection Endorsement in your own policy.
However, in more rare circumstances, if you are an Ontario resident and you are injured in a motor vehicle accident where there is no insurance, you may have a claim to the fund of last resort — the Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund.
