Dartmouth Accident Benefits Lawyer

If you live or work in Dartmouth and were recently injured in a motor vehicle collision, you may have acquired a host of new, unexpected expenses. Injured accident survivors often notice bills beginning to pile up after their collisions, for medical treatments, services, or equipment they never thought they would need. When injuries are so severe or disruptive that they prevent car accident survivors from returning to their workplaces, it can be difficult to know where to turn to seek financial support.

Luckily, regardless of which driver was responsible for causing your motor vehicle collision, you may be entitled to accident benefits– also referred to as Section B benefits– which may provide financial compensation for damages you have incurred because of your injuries. All drivers in the province are legally required to carry automobile insurance. Standard insurance policies include coverage for certain costs related to medical recovery, lost wages due to an inability to work, and other benefits to help injured accident survivors maintain control of their financial stability after a serious collision.

Typically, these standard, no-fault accident benefits provide coverage for damages up to $50,000 for four years after the collision. Since accident benefits are available to all insured drivers, even if your own mistakes on the road contributed to the conditions that caused your collision, if you were injured in the accident, your insurance policy may provide you with financial compensation for certain damages. These may 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

Accident benefits may also provide income replacement payments, also called Weekly Indemnity benefits, if the injuries sustained during their car accident prevent them from returning to the workplace. Furthermore, if your motor vehicle collision resulted in a wrongful death, Section B benefits may provide $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.

In order to recover accident benefits, injured Dartmouth residents are required to submit their claims within the time limits stipulated by their insurance provider, and include any relevant proof of their injuries required by the company. However, for a number of reasons, insurance companies may deny an applicant’s claim for benefits.

Since accident benefits provide much-needed financial support, when insurance providers unfairly deny an injured car accident survivor’s claim for benefits, the policyholder may face significant physical, psychological, and financial challenges. If your accident benefits were unfairly denied, our Dartmouth accident lawyers may be able to help you fight their decision.
