dangerous driving

Unread post by hhnaderhh on

this is not so much of a dangeroous driving question , but i got dangerous driving and my insurance said they are denying my claim because of that ticket, and a couple months later they cancelled coverage, now my dangerous driving charge is in court and my final trial date is in dec 2, 2013, the accident happen on dec 24 2012, so almost a year, durning this whole time my car has been sitting in a body shop as im waiting to see what happens with my ticket, now if my ticket drops, does insurance have to pay for it? because my ticket has dropped and i was covered at the time of accident? and only reason they denied my claim was because of the ticket.

1. Dangerous Driving is not a ticket, it's a Criminal offence for which you have been arrested. This "ticket" you refer to might be the Form 9 or Form 10 you were served as a result of being arrested and charged.

2. insurance companies will not typically cover you if you are found criminally responsible for the damages incurred (same as impaired driving, for example).

3. this site typically only covers issues with regards to the Highway Traffic Act (of Ontario), and less with the Criminal Code.

Sounds like the insurance company is trying to worm their way out of paying for the damages.
If you do night fight your insurance company it can be argued that you acquiesced.
