Edmundston Accident Benefits Lawyer

When car crashes result in serious injuries, the process of recovery can be long, complicated, and expensive. Many people who are injured in car accidents on the roads and highways in and around Edmundston find themselves in financially precarious circumstances. With medical bills continuing to pile up and newly acquired expenses accumulating regularly, injured survivors of motor vehicle collisions can easily feel overwhelmed by their new financial situations.

However, anyone who operates a motor vehicle in this province is required to carry mandatory insurance. All standard automobile policies cover no-fault accident benefits. Also known as Section B benefits, accident benefits can provide injured car crash survivors with up to $50,000 for four years from the date of their collision, regardless of their level of culpability for the collision. That means, even if an insured driver’s errors behind the wheel were responsible for causing the accident, they should still be eligible to collect no-fault accident benefits.

Accident benefits can provide crucial financial support to injured car crash survivors who are struggling to keep up with their newly acquired injury-related expenses. The coverage available to injured accident victims can be used to offset the costs they have accumulated as a result of their injuries. Oftentimes, these costs 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
  • Psychological counselling
  • And possibly more

Additionally, if the injured insurance policyholder was their household’s primary caretaker and can no longer perform routine housework because of the injuries they sustained in their collision, accident benefits may be available to them. For 52 weeks following their accident, injured car crash survivors may be able to receive $100 per week to retain the services of a housekeeper.

Furthermore, car accident survivors whose injuries prevent them from returning to work may be able to receive additional weekly indemnity benefits. These income replacement payments can provide injured accident survivors who cannot return to their workplaces with up to $250 per week for up to 2 years following their accident.

Additionally, if a car accident ends 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.

Although insurance providers should make accident benefits available to each of their eligible policyholders, in many situations, insurers find reasons to deny injured accident survivors’ claims for benefits. If your claim for benefits was denied, our accident benefits lawyers serving Edmundston may be able to provide you with important legal advice and assistance.
