‘FAIR – supporting auto accident victims through advocacy and education’
FAIR (Fair Association of Victims for Accident Insurance Reform) is a grassroots not-for-profit organization of MVA (Motor Vehicle Accident) victims who have been injured in motor vehicle collisions and who have struggled with the current auto insurance system in Ontario.
Our members lives, as a result of these MVAs, have been turned upside down by brain injury, loss of limbs, need for surgery and reparative therapy, long-term debilitating injuries, loss of time from work, loss of jobs and sometimes loss of independence .
FAIR Association of Victims for Accident Insurance Reform wants to see changes to auto insurance legislation that will improve the way all MVA victims are treated and cared for under provincial insurance legislation. Not only are FAIR members faced with the challenges of overcoming and adapting to injury, we are also faced with an insurance system that does not fairly provide needed rehabilitation coverage and benefits.
FAIR gives a voice to the thousands of people in Ontario who have become amongst the most vulnerable people in our province.
If you or a family member has been harmed in a motor vehicle accident and by the poor coverage offered under the auto insurance legislation in Ontario, you can join FAIR and make your voice heard. We welcome ALL members who wish to support FAIR’s mandate for change to Ontario’s accident insurance legislation and for better treatment for all MVA victims – you don’t have to be injured to see the problem or to work towards change. We appreciate ALL of our supporters.
If you’d like to donate to FAIR to support us in our efforts to change Ontario’s auto insurance coverage, you access the FAIR Donation Contribution Form here.
WARNING – FAIR has been hearing from members about accident victims being approached by insurance representatives within 24 hours of an accident requesting that the MVA victim sign documents that agree that their injury falls under the Minor Injury Group (MIG) guidelines. FAIR suggests that you consult with a legal representative BEFORE signing any paperwork produced by your insurer in relation to any injuries.
