Bridgewater Accident Benefits Lawyer


Car accidents can happen in an instant. When collisions on the roads and highways in and around Bridgewater occur, in a flash, an accident victim’s entire life can be radically changed. Motor vehicle collisions often result in serious injuries. Depending on the severity of the injuries sustained by car accident survivors, the road to recovery can be long, challenging, and expensive.

However, if you sustained injuries in a motor vehicle collision– even if your wrongful actions behind the wheel contributed to the conditions that caused the crash to occur– you may be entitled to a certain degree of financial relief in the form of no-fault accident benefits. Designed to help injured survivors of car accidents offset the necessary costs of injury-related expenses, accident benefits coverage is included in all standard automobile insurance plans throughout the province. Therefore, since it is mandatory for all motor vehicle operators to carry insurance, if you were hurt in a collision, you may be able to access accident benefits.

Also known as Section B benefits, accident benefits offer up to $50,000 in coverage for a maximum of four years following the date of the injurious collision. Accident benefits can help injured car crash survivors afford necessary costs arising from their injuries. These costs often 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.

There is no doubt that accident benefits offer critical support to injured insurance policyholders to help them weather an extremely challenging storm. However, on many occasions, insurance providers may find reasons to deny their injured policyholders’ claims for accident benefits.
