Accident benefits are designed to help injured car crash survivors cover newly acquired costs resulting from the injuries they have sustained. Recovering from serious injuries can be an expensive process, with unexpected essential costs accumulating rapidly. Injured accident survivors may feel overwhelmed by all of these new expenses, especially if their injuries prevent them from returning to work and earning their regular salaries.

However, the accident benefits included in all standard automobile insurance policies can be an important financial lifeline, helping injured survivors of motor vehicle collisions make ends meet during a very challenging time. 

Also known as Section B benefits, accident benefits can provide injured survivors of car crashes with up to $50,000 for four years following their collision. These benefits are designed to provide financial compensation for necessary expenses related to their injuries.These expenses 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
  • Housekeeping services 
  • And possibly more

In addition to the damages listed above, if the injuries sustained in a car accident make it impossible for a policyholder to continue fulfilling the responsibilities of their occupation, they may be entitled to receive Weekly Indemnity Benefits. These income replacement payments can provide injured accident survivors with 80% of their lost wages, up to a maximum of $250 per week. Furthermore, in the tragic instances where car accidents result in wrongful deaths, policyholders may be able to access additional benefits. 

Since all drivers are required by law to have automobile insurance, every motorist injured in a collision may be able to receive no-fault accident benefit, regardless of a driver’s level of culpability for their collision. That means that, even if a driver’s mistakes behind the wheel contributed to the circumstances leading to the collision, they should still be entitled to receive accident benefits. 

However, for a number of different reasons, insurance providers may decide to deny a policyholder’s claim for accident benefits. If your claim was unfairly denied by your insurance provider, our accident benefits lawyers serving Glace Bay may be able to help you overturn their decision.
