Update: In its November 17 press release, the FAIR Association of Victims for Accident Insurance Reform, calling for an investigation by the Auditor General and Ontario Ombudsman, finds that Ontario’s auto insurance companies have been delaying and denying their customer’s claims by way of poor quality or biased medical opinion reports – in much the same way as [“Prescription Over-ruled” reports] is happening at the WSIB.
