Despres-Pacey Insurance Brokers Limited - Auto Insurance

Automobile: Personal : Business : Commercial : Recreational

Automobile Insurance in Ontario is required by law to be placed on any licensed motorized vehicle that uses public land or highways in the Province. This includes automobiles, trucks, snowmobiles, and ATVs, to name but a few.

Automobile insurance is much more than just a legal obligation - it offers you valuable protection against loss and injuries in the event of an automobile accident. Despres-Pacey Insurance Brokers Limited offers a variety of comprehensive automobile insurance packages to meet your needs.

Every auto policy has certain specific coverages that are mandatory for everyone. This ensures that all people injured in automobile accidents -- drivers, passengers, cyclists or pedestrians -- will be entitled to certain accident benefits such as income replacement, medical care and rehabilitation, or attendant care.

Mandatory Coverages

Third-party Liability: We strongly recommend limits of $2,000,000 or higher to protect yourself in the event that the driver of your vehicle injures another party or damages another party’s property.

Uninsured Automobile Coverage: Is required in the event the owner of the vehicle that injured you or caused damage to your vehicle doesn’t have any insurance.

Statutory Accident Benefits: Provides medical payments and scheduled death and disability benefits, regardless of fault.

Direct Compensation for Property Damage: This coverage ensures that to the extent you are not at fault, your insurance company pays for the damage to your vehicle.

There are numerous optional coverages and endorsements available under the automobile policy. Highlighted below are just a few of the optional coverages for your benefit.

Optional Coverages

Indexing of the income replacement benefits
