You are likely entitled to benefits from your automobile insurance company (income replacement benefits, among other benefits). 2. You may be eligible for financial assistance through the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) or CPP Disability. 3. Your employer can’t fire you. It must accommodate your disability except for rare cases. 4. Make sure to provide your employer and auto insurance company with medical reports from your family doctor, clinic or hospital regarding your injuries and ongoing disability. 5. Speak with a lawyer that specialize in personal injury and employment to make sure that you are fully aware of your legal rights with respect to your car accident as well as employment situation. If you or someone you know is injured in a car accident and your injuries affects your ability to work, remember the following 5 things: Unfortunately, we see people regularly who have suffered injuries in a car accident and who, through no fault of their own, have been victimized over and over again, first by their insurance company and then by their employer who refuses to accommodate their disability from the accident. It doesn’t have to be that way. Your legal rights are an extremely powerful shield which, if used correctly, can protect you and your family.
