Since all motor vehicle operators in the province are required to have automobile insurance, if you live or work in Halifax and have sustained serious injuries in a collision, you may be entitled to accident benefits. These standard, no-fault benefits, also referred to as Section B benefits, may be available regardless of which driver was responsible for causing the collision. That means, even if your own mistake behind the wheel contributed to the conditions resulting in a collision, if you were injured in the accident, your insurance policy may provide you with financial compensation despite your contributory negligence.
After sustaining injuries in a collision, injured car accident survivors are required to apply for accident benefits in accordance with provincial regulations and with any deadlines stipulated by your insurance provider. For those injured Halifax residents who submit their claims for accident benefits within the mandated time limit, there is often an assumption that their claims will be processed automatically, and in a timely manner.
However, for a number of reasons, insurance companies may delay accident benefits payments, or turn down an applicant’s benefits claim altogether. Since accident benefits provide crucial financial support to injured accident survivors who have incurred unexpected expenses because of their injuries, these unfair actions by insurance providers can create extremely challenging conditions for injured Haligonians.
Accident benefits can help injured accident survivors recover costs related to their newly acquired medical expenses. Typically covering the costs of damages up to $50,000 for four years following the collision, accident benefits may compensate injured accident survivors for the costs of medical treatments, equipment, prescriptions, modifications to their homes to accommodate disabilities, ambulance services, mileage expenses to and from medical appointments, psychological counseling, housekeeping services, 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.
