Throughout the province, anyone who operates a motor vehicle is required to carry mandatory insurance. All standard automobile insurance policies offer coverage to injured survivors of motor vehicle collisions. If you were injured in a car crash, you may be able to collect accident benefits. 

Also known as Section B benefits, no-fault accident benefits may be made available to you even if your own error or wrongful action on the road caused the accident to occur. No matter your level of culpability for the collision, if you were injured in the crash, you should be able to collect accident benefits from your insurance provider.

Accident benefits can provide injured car crash survivors with up to $50,000 for a maximum of four years following their collision. This coverage can be made available to the injured victims of car accidents to help them offset the costs of expenses they have incurred as a result of the injuries they have sustained. These expenses frequently include:

  • Medical treatments
  • Rehabilitation costs 
  • Physiotherapy 
  • Mobility aids, assistive medical equipment
  • Prescriptions
  • Home modifications to accommodate newly acquired disabilities 
  • Ambulance services
  • Mileage expenses to and from medical appointments
  • Housekeeping services
  • Psychological counselling
  • And possibly more

Furthermore, depending on the circumstances of the collision and its effects on an injured survivor’s life, insurance policies could provide additional coverage, including:

  • Weekly Indemnity Benefits: Income replacement payments of up to $250/week for 2 years issued to accident survivors who cannot work because of their injuries.
  • Housekeeping expenses: $100 per week for 52 weeks to retain the services of a housekeeper if the injured accident victim cannot maintain their residence as a result of their injuries.
  • Death Benefits: For accidents ending in fatalities, $2,500 in funeral expenses, $25,000 in death benefits for the head of household or their spouse, and $5,000 in death benefits for dependents.

Accident benefits can be an essential source of income for injured collision survivors. No one anticipates being involved in a car accident, and few people are financially prepared to undergo a lengthy and expensive recovery process. Accident benefits, therefore, offer much-needed financial support to insurance policyholders.

People pay their monthly insurance premiums so that, in the unfortunate event of an injurious collision, they will be able to access necessary coverage. However, insurance providers frequently withhold the payments rightfully owed to their policyholders and deny their claims for accident benefits.
