The way automobile accident benefits disputes are resolved in Ontario has changed.
The way lawyers and paralegals represent their clients dramatically changed with the introduction of a new dispute resolution system with the Licence Appeal Tribunal (LAT).
The LAT Handbook: Dispute Resolution Procedure for Accident Benefits, authored by John McLeish, Dale Orlando, and Patrick Brown, provides an easy to follow step-by-step procedure for working with the new dispute resolution system. The Handbook also provides all the necessary forms.
Steps in the process
All new disputes regarding accident benefits must be started with the LAT. The LAT has created a new adjudicative group, the Automobile Accident Benefits Services (AABS); with the goal to resolve disagreements between injured persons and insurers within six months. Steps in this process include:
- Complete the application
- File and serve the application
- Assignment of a case manager
- Respond to the application
- Dates for the case conference
- Prepare an AABS case conference summary
- The case conference
- The case conference order and the case conference report
- The hearing
- The release of the LAT's decision
The Handbook is the only resource needed for all procedures, forms, and timelines.
The appendices include:
- LAT Timeline
- Application by an Injured Person for Auto Insurance Dispute Resolution
- Representing Minors and Mentally Incapable Persons
- Certificate of Service
- Response by an Insurance Company to an Injured Person's Application for Auto Insurance Dispute Resolution
- AABS Case Conference Summary
- Licence Appeal Tribunal (LAT) Rules of Practice and Procedure
Whether you represent injured individuals or insurers, The LAT Handbook: Dispute Resolution Procedure for Accident Benefits is a must in working with the new system.
