Car accident victims in Quebec get justice with Bégin Avocat

You may already know that victims of car accidents in Quebec are automatically under the protection of the Société de l’Assurance Automobile du Québec (SAAQ).

However, it often happens that there is an imbalance of power between victims and the institution that is meant to protect them. The traffic accident claims procedure can take a very long time and the slightest error in your file can work against you. Given the impact that the SAAQ’s decision can have on your quality of life, you need to maximize your chances of success!

Engaging the services of an administrative lawyer like Me Bégin can be the key to managing an SAAQ claim successfully.

Bégin Avocat can help you if you are:


What can you expect from a decision by the SAAQ?

The SAAQ offers several types of benefits to victims of traffic accidents:

  • Compensation for personal injury,
  • Compensation for psychological injury,
  • Income replacement benefits (IRB).


Compensation may also cover:

  • The right to receive in-home assistance,
  • Your ability to perform a professional function,
  • The reimbursement of a treatment (operation, rehabilitation, medication, etc…).


If you feel that the Société de l’Assurance Automobile du Québec (SAAQ) has made a decision that does not provide the right compensation for the injury you have suffered, you can assert your rights as a road accident victim and contest the verdict.

In these cases, the extensive experience of a trusted lawyer is invaluable. Remember, help is available if you need to put together a file to claim an unjust decision by Quebec’s public automobile insurance plan.

Why hire a specialized lawyer against the SAAQ?

Hiring an SAAQ lawyer is not mandatory, but it is above all a very rational decision. You may be willing to represent yourself if:

  • You are not seriously injured
  • You are familiar with administrative law
  • You can detach your emotions from the objective facts
  • You know the true value of the injury suffered.

If you find yourself lacking in any of these areas, or if you simply don’t want to have to fight for yourself, it’s time to speak with a professional who specializes and is experienced in dealing with car accidents.

A decision rendered by the Société d’Assurance Automobile du Québec can impact the rest of your life: hiring a member of the Quebec Bar like Me Bégin can be life-changing.
