Every winter, millions of Canadian and Northern USA Residents (commonly referred to as “Snowbirds“) migrate south to escape the harsh cold weather. Unfortunately while travelling to their favourite southern destinations, Snowbirds sometimes get into very serious motor vehicle accidents. Any accident at anytime can be devastating. It can be overwhelming in an unfamiliar state.
James Howie of Howie, Sacks and Henry, a law firm in Toronto, Canada, just published a very interesting article that specifically deals with some of the differences. It is an article Canadians and US residents should read prior to heading to south. Subject to where the accident happened you can expect tremendous differences in both Tort and Contractual claims.
