If you were injured in a car accident, you may find yourself accumulating numerous expenses related to your injuries. These expenses often include:
- Medical treatments
- Rehabilitation costs
- Mobility aids, assistive medical equipment
- Home modifications to accommodate newly acquired disabilities
- Ambulance services
- Mileage expenses to and from medical appointments
- Housekeeping services
- Psychological counselling
- And possibly more
For recently injured car crash survivors, managing newly acquired, injury-related, wholly necessary costs of care can be challenging. Accident survivors often struggle to afford their regular monthly expenses on top of new costs stemming from injuries they have sustained, and may find themselves in financially precarious situations as a result of being injured in a motor vehicle collision.
That said, if you were hurt in a car crash, you may be eligible for financial relief through your insurance plan’s no-fault accident benefits. All drivers in the province are required to carry automobile insurance and all standard automobile insurance policies make provisions for accident benefits.
No-fault accident benefits may be available to all injured insurance policyholders, regardless of their level of culpability for causing the collision. That means, even if your misconduct on the road caused your collision to occur, you may still be eligible to collect accident benefits.
Depending on how your daily life was impacted by the outcome of your injurious motor vehicle collision, accident benefits may provide you with various types of coverage. For example, if the injuries you sustained in a car crash make it impossible for you to perform the duties of your job, you may be able to recover a maximum of $250 in income replacement payments per week. Eligible car accident survivors may be able to collect weekly indemnity benefits for up to 2 years following their collision.
Additionally, if you are your household’s primary caretaker and no longer carry out routine housework because of your injuries, you may be able to access $100 per week for up to 52 weeks so that you can retain the services of a housekeeper. In the tragic instances where motor vehicle collisions end 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.
Furthermore, injured car crash survivors may be able to collect up to $50,000 for a maximum of four years after the collision date to offset the cost of injury-related expenses they have accrued as a direct result of their accident. By making this funding available to injured accident survivors, insurers provide much-needed financial support to policyholders struggling through a very difficult set of circumstances.
However, for a number of reasons, insurance providers may decide to deny injured policyholders’ claims for accident benefits, and withhold the payments they should be entitled to receive.
