Loss Transfer and Priority Disputes
We defend statutory accident benefits claims on behalf of our insurer clients, both through the court system and through private arbitration.
Our loss transfer and priority dispute practice group has specialized expertise in representing clients in arbitrations involving inter-company disputes that deal with priority issues, which involves the ranking of insurers to pay accident benefits under the Insurance Act. The group also represents clients on loss transfer matters, a mechanism by which automobile insurers that pay no-fault benefits may be reimbursed by another insurer for all or part of an accident benefits claim. Our practice group co-chairs, Nathalie Rosenthall and Peter Durant, are available to answer any questions you may have on a priority or loss transfer matter.
Our expertise has led us to act on seminal cases argued in private arbitration, the Ontario Court of Appeal, and the Supreme Court of Canada:
Pilot Insurance Co. v. Zurich Insurance Co. (Private Arbitration)
Intact Insurance Co. v. The Co-Operators General Insurance Company (Private Arbitration)
Zurich v. Aviva (private arbitration), April 1, 2007
Co-Operators v. Zurich (private arbitration), September 27, 2005
