A Quebec resident who is the victim of an accident outside of Quebec also has the right to take direct legal action against the person liable for the accident under the laws of Ontario.
If the victim has received compensation from the SAAQ, this recourse will only be valid for the excess amount. SAAQ is legally subrogated to the victim’s rights only up to the amount of the indemnity paid. The tort law of Ontario will be applicable in this case.
The victim can receive compensation for additional medical and rehabilitation expenses not covered by SAAQ, pain and suffering, loss of income, loss of educational expenses and other expenses.
