Why contact your MPP about auto insurance?
We are legislated to buy the product of private insurers. We are without a choice and virtually without consumer protection. We are without the protections that other patients in Ontario have when we are are considered clients, not patients in recovery. We are denied the right to access our civil court for unpaid accident benefits and penalized financially in civil court for pain and suffering. We are re-victimized in a system that benefits insurer profits by way of denying car accident survivors recovery resources they paid for with insurers who are charging us the highest premiums in Canada.
It’s up to us to make sure MPPs are aware of what is happening to car accident victims in the province. They represent YOU
