    Auto Insurance: Understanding Accident Benefit Coverage
    Presented by Johnson 

    Ontario Auto Insurance has been under fierce critique and the premiums we pay are often heavily debated. It can be difficult understanding the details of what we exactly are paying for, and how to evaluate whether a basic auto policy is enough if you are seriously injured in a car accident. 

    Join us when, Leanne B. Hardman, will share what Accident Benefits coverage is, what you should know as a consumer about the limits you have, and how Insurers are fighting back against those who abuse the system.
