All drivers on the province’s roads and highways are required to hold mandatory automobile insurance. All standard insurance policies in the province offer coverage for Section B benefits. That means, if you were injured in a car crash, you may be eligible for financial compensation.
Also referred to as “no-fault accident benefits,” Section B benefits provide much-needed financial support to injured survivors of motor vehicle collisions to help offset the costs of necessary injury-related expenses. Regardless of which driver’s actions were responsible for causing the collision to occur, any insurance policyholder who sustained injuries as a result of the crash could be able to access Section B benefits.
Section B benefits can provide injured car accident survivors with a maximum of $50,000 for up to four years after the date of their collision in order to help them afford the costs of injury-related damages. These often include:
- 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
On top of that, 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. Injured insurance policyholders may be able to access $100 per week for up to 52 weeks so that they can retain the services of a housekeeper.
Additionally, if the injuries sustained by a car crash survivor prevent them from returning to work, they may be able to access weekly indemnity benefits. These income replacement payments can provide up to $250 per week to injured car accident survivors for a maximum of two years following their accident if their injuries make it impossible for them to complete the tasks of their job.
Furthermore, if a motor vehicle collision ended in a fatality, 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 can provide injured policyholders with important financial assistance to help through a very challenging experience. No one anticipates being injured in a sudden car accident, and few people realize just how expensive it can be to recover from severe injuries.
Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, insurance providers may decide to deny their policyholders’ claims for Section B benefits, withholding access to crucial funds to which injured accident survivors should be entitled.
