In the aftermath of an injury-causing car crash, accident survivors may face a long, difficult, and expensive road to recovery. Nobody anticipates sustaining injuries in a collision, and the financial toll the recovery process can take on injured accident survivors can be enormous. This is especially true for injured car accident victims whose newly acquired medical conditions prevent them from performing the duties of their jobs. In these cases, keeping up with regular expenses in addition to necessary injury-related costs can feel like an impossible challenge.
That said, anyone who drives a car in this province is required to carry mandatory automobile insurance, and all standard plans offer coverage for Section B benefits. Often made available to injured survivors of motor vehicle collisions, Section B benefits can provide up to $50,000 for certain injury-related costs for a maximum of four years following the car accident. Section B benefits may help injured collision survivors offset the costs of various expenses stemming from their injuries, including:
- Medical expenses
- Ambulance bills
- Medical equipment
- Mobility aids
- Chiropractic sessions
- Massage therapy
- Strength-training exercise programs
- Psychological counselling
- Home modifications to accommodate acquired disabilities
- Mileage expenses for trips to and from medical appointments
- And possibly more
Furthermore, accident survivors who were their household’s primary caretaker and can no longer perform housework because of the injuries they sustained in a collision may be entitled to additional accident benefits. In order to retain the services of a housekeeper, injured insurance policyholders may be able to access $100 per week for up to 52 weeks.
If the injuries sustained by a car crash survivor makes it impossible for them to return to work, they may be able to access weekly indemnity benefits. These income replacement payments can provide accident survivors who are unable to work with up to $250 per week for a maximum of 2 years following the collision date. Moreover, if a motor vehicle collision ended in fatalities, families of the deceased may receive $2,500 for funeral expenses, $25,000 in death benefits for the head of household or their spouse, and $5,000 in death benefits for dependents.
Section B benefits provide much-needed financial support to people going through extremely challenging situations. Also referred to as no-fault accident benefits, Section B benefits can be made available to any policyholder injured in a car crash, no matter their degree of fault. That means that, even if a driver’s wrongful conduct behind the wheel caused the accident to occur, if they sustained injuries as a result of the crash, they should still be able to access Section B benefits.
